April 2016 USA Sieger Show wins!
Excellent results in the USA Sieger Show in Indianapolis, IN! Our own Sammy von Lotta was 2nd in a very large and competitive 4-6 months female class. Sammy is my pick of the "S" litter and a daughter of two best GSD in the USA (and top
rated in the world), VA1 Wiva vom Zellwaldrand and VA1 Schumann von Tronje.
Our newest import, Niwa von Tronje (V1 Marlo von Baccara daughter) was crowned the Siegerin (1st place) in a no less competitive 9-12 months class on Saturday. Niwa has just turned 9 months a couple of weeks ago, and was completely out
of coat; it was pouring rain, and yet her movement and drive brought her right to the top. Niwa is the 7th national champion that we imported from Germany over the last 11 years. See both puppies under "Young Females" on our Females
As well as our Pablo von Lotta who is also Wiva vom Zellwaldrand and Young World Champion Arre vom Hühnegrab son, was rated SG8 in the 12-18 months class - congratulations Michael Moon! See Pablo on our Stud
April 2016 Erastus von Lotta - High in Trial in Germany!
Fantastic news from Germany!!! Erastus von Lotta is currently in Germany, working on completion of his education and titles with his dedicated trainer Johannes Park. While going for their IPO2 title, this fine team took High in Trial in Ostrhauderfehn, Germany! There were 15 dogs participating in the event.
The local newspaper ran an article about the event, and Mr. Park and Erastus are mentioned as the best IPO team in the trial. They are right in the center in the picture. Erastus will be coming back to the USA in August 2016 and will be offered at stud to approved females.
October 2014 KvL is home to the double National Siegerin
Very happy to announce that our Wiva vom Zellwaldrand is a double National Siegerin
now! She was crowned Seigerin (VA1) at the GSDCA Sieger Show in St. Louis, MO this October, in addition to already winning the North American Sieger Show in the youth class in 2012! Wiva was also rated SG24 and V12 in the most prestisious German Sieger Show, and was among the top 30 females in the world, as well as the highest rated American female in the world
Thank you Ralf (vom Zellwaldrand kennel) for giving us the opportunity to bring Wiva to the United States. I fell in love with Wiva when she was an unknown youngster, but there was no doubt in my mind that her winning spirit with bring her to the top.
Wiva's beauty and spirit are what make her stand out, and we are looking forward to her contribution to the von Lotta bloodlines. More information about Wiva is on our Females
November 2012 We are moving!
So excited to announce that we purchased 9.5 acres of land with a cute little house and a monster barn in Locust Grove, GA! The previous owners had horses, and so the land is a beautiful mix of pasture and trees, and is very
We are building a new kennel that will have 15' x 30' and 10' x 25' runs, so the dogs will have plenty of space. Most importantly, they'll get to enjoy all this land! Even though we haven't moved yet, I already took every dog to see the
property, and of course they absolutely love it! AND! I can stand in the middle and throw a ball in any direction and not worry that it will end up in the neighbors' yard! Right off the property there is a 1 mile walking path in the
woods, which deer and foxes frequent too, so it's like going to Disney Land for my dogs! Over time, we plan to invest into two proper puppy rooms, as well as a full sized IPO training field.
Because of the construction and the move, as one can imagine, November is a very busy month for us. I will be less reachable over the phone, and it might take me a few days to reply to messages. We also will have limited availability for
visits. Please bear with us, soon enough all will go back to normal and we will be happy to show off our new place.
Show Season 2012 Success and a new exciting addition!
Another successful show season for our dogs! After hours of planning, training, behind-the-scenes team work, and thousands of miles driven, here are some of the highlights of the 2012 show season:
At the USA Sieger Show in Indianapolis, IN (May 18-20, 2012) our own Jana von Lotta was rated V7 (excellent 7th place)! Jana is the first dog from our breeding to be presented in a working class at the National competition, and she
passed the courage test and put on fantastic performance in the show ring. Besides Jana, our youngsters placed well too: VP8 Qutie von Lotta, VP10 Polina von Lotta, VP10 Quando von Lotta! Classes were large and very competitive, with most of the top breeders in the country presenting their best, and also some outstanding quality puppies and dogs brought over from Germany, Slovenia,
Argentina, Canada. Thank you very one for a true team effort and your warm support!
BH! BH! BH! August 18-19, 2012 Tinka and I went with a group from our Schutzhund Club to SC and trialed for our BH under USA/SV judge Carla Griffith. The judge said it was a beautiful picture and we had more than enough points to pass! Also, Josh Markow did his BH with Mila (Askia von Hund & Sport - a working line female we co-own together) - they looked really pulled together and had a crisp performance, as one
would expect from a true professional! And, our friend Lori Moon went for her very first BH with her very first dog to train - Utah (Ulk von der Waterkant, imported from Germany as a puppy) - and passed without a glitch! Congratulations
Atlanta SchH Verein Show on September 30, 2012 - 5 dogs shown, 4 first places! And mostly from our breeding! VP1 Vector von Lotta, VP1 Qutie von Lotta, SG1 Polina von Lotta, and SG1 Tinka von der Waterkant. Riska von Lotta also showed
well - VP4. Also, Michael and Lori's dogs Utah von der Waterkant and Quando von Lotta placed SG2 and VP2, and, last but not least, our crazy working line female Mila finally got her SG show rating!
And now to the biggest show of the year - North American Sieger Show (NASS), October 18-21! Chicago was generous with great weather this late October weekend, and what a show this was for our team!
Both puppies from our "U" litter showed extremely well! VP1 Bolero (best baby puppy in N. America!), and VP3 Uma! Their mom Jessy is proving to be as
excellent producer as I was hoping, and I can't wait to raise her next litter of puppies!
Our newest addition, Wiva vom Zellwaldrand caused a stir with her truly awe-inspiring performance, taking 1st place in 12-18 females (The movie Secretariat comes to mind). This is not the first time that I imported a dog who finished 1st
in the country, but this time the feedback that I received from other breeders and the judge himself was simply overwhelming. The judge said that this powerful and spirited female is what all of us breeders should strive to breed for.
I'm simply speechless, and so so grateful. Thank you Ralf and Carsten for trusting me with Wiva and making it all happen!
Another one of our imports who truly impressed was Peer von Groß-Zünder who also finished 1st! This is the second time that Peer claimed the North American Sieger title - congratulations to owner Ali Jaffar!
Huge thank you Michael & Lori, Jacqueline & Willi, Günter, Mike, Josh, Beth & the Classic City team, Ralf & Carsten, Sabine, Bob, Jane, Netasha, Martha, Josh & Katie, and especially Chad, for all your support, for believing in me and my
dogs, for lending a helpful hand and going above and beyond, training, handling, and doing all humanly possible. You encourage me in more ways than you can imagine and it is thanks to you that we rock - and have so much fun too!

October 1, 2008 Feeding your German Shepherd Raw Diet - new daily blog has started!
I cringe every time I feed my dogs kibble. Check out my Raw German Shepherd Diet article
to see why. With so much travel lately, and so many dogs, I had no other choice. But! Back to RAW now!
We feed our adult German Shepherds once a day, and puppies are eating twice a day. Here is what I fed my dogs today:
Nemka: 3 sardines (0.7 lbs). Nemka needs to lose some weight, so her portions are reduced.
Fanta: 7 chicken necks. Fanta doesn’t like sardines.
Quana: 5 sardines (1.2 lbs).
Yash: 12 chicken necks. Yash doesn’t like sardines either.
Sardines are previously frozen, raw, whole (with head and all), from Oregon. ($0.69/lb when I buy a 22 lbs box ). Click here to read more about raw dog food and dog food recipes
September 20, 2008 New page "Available" is now posted for viewing.
On this page you will find a summary of all puppies and dogs available at the moment at Kennels von Lotta. All categories, such as Imported German Shepherd
Puppies for Sale, American-bred German Shepherd puppies for Sale, Older Puppies for Sale, Trained Adult German Shepherds – all are grouped together on this
page for convenient viewing.
This should make it easier for people who are undecided about age or origin of their
future addition to browse our website.

September 12 - 14, 2008 Sieger Show 2008, Aachen, Germany
Here is a short note about the Bundessieger-Zuhtschau (BSZS) 2008, that was held in gorgeous Aachen, Germany. Friday morning's fog yielded to a steady rain that lasted for the rest of the day, and well into Saturday. The grass was very slippery during the bitework on Friday, and quite a few dogs skidded past the helper. What happens in these situations is that the helper re-attacks the dog as he/she recovers from the miss or fall. If the dog counter-attacks and bites the sleeve...

I was in awe, watching Yukon von der Bastillie, full litermate to our Yash, doing exeptional bitework, for which he was recognized along with a dosen or so males whose working ability stood out from the crowd. It was even more breathtaking to watch his excellent progeny group Saturday, and him becoming VA7 Sunday!

October 12-14, 2007 North American Sieger Show 2007, St. Louis, USA
What an excellent show it was - NASS 2007. It was held at gorgeous Purina Farms in St. Louis, MO, and the weather was perfect. Our Yash von der Bastillie
was shown in working
class, the most challenging and competitive class of the show. Each dog presented in this class must be at least two years old, has to have a
SchH title, Breed Survey (Kkl), certified hips and elbows, and successfully pass the courage test on Saturday. Yash has it all, and he
did a fantastic bitework (courage test) performance (the best according to many spectators who came to congratulate us afterwards).
Watch the video here!
The judging in the ring on Sunday morning couldn't have started any better! When the judge called out the males in the order of his preference, Yash was called out 3rd!
Following VA1 Teejay vom Wilhendorf and VA2 Hoss vom Hirmer Teich, and leaving behind several previously VA rated, older males, including a recent Sieger. It
was so exciting! Unfortunately Yash didn't feel his best that morning, I could see it when we got up, so he did not demonstrate his usual spirit while
day, and lost several places finishing V2 (Excellent, 2nd place).
Nevertheless, I couldn't be happier as there will be many more shows to come for him. Thank you so much
everyone who helped me to train, prepare, and show Yash at this huge event. It was true teamwork!
Feli vom Dreieichenbuckel
- VA4 (Excellent Select 4th place)! Full sister of our Fanta vom Dreieichenbuckel
- VP20 (in a class of 58!)
Cid von der Grafschaft Mark
- VP9 (Very Promising 9th place!), our imported puppies in their very first show.
April 2, 2007 Now you can see locations of our puppies!
Curious where our puppies went? Want to know where your puppy’s siblings are? Here is the perfect tool!
You need to zoom in pretty closely in “higher concentration” areas such as New York and Atlanta, to clearly see each puppy. To show the locations of the puppies, we used our puppy owners’ approximate locations only - to protect their privacy. Click here to see our ineractive map
We are also in the process of putting together a References page, so if you would like your puppy to appear on that page, please write to us about your puppy and experiences. If you could also include a recent picture – that would be perfect!
October 27-29, 2006 Kennels von Lotta success at the 2006 North American Sieger Show (NASS)
We are thrilled with the results of the North American Sieger Show in St. Louis, MO! Our
Sierra vom Ochsentor
placed V3 in the working class
in the strongest competition yet! Not only was she beautiful in the ring, she also demonstrated exemplary bite-work during the courage test! She was the only working class female to truly impress experienced Schutzhund trainers (and the judge)! We are very proud of Sierra.
Victor vom Zellwaldrand
, our imported puppy won 1st place
in the 6-9 month puppy class! Victor clearly stood out among his competition, and there was not a dog close to him in his quality and performance. Congratulations to his owner Vincent Gaudio, and wishes of continuous success!
Congratulations also to other von Lotta imports, including Ole von der Urbecke
Siberia vom Gollerweiher (Yola)
(Linda Cabral), and Aiko von der Grübecke
(Max Miller) on their strong performances.
VA1 Bazi von der Urbecke
was crowned as the 2006 North American Sieger. Congratulations to his owner, breeder, trainer and handler - awesome teamwork. We've imported several puppies sired by Bazi in the recent past (Aischa and Aiko, Uri and Ukres) and we hope their owners will be inspired by Bazi's success. What a gorgeous dog!
October 20, 2006 "C" litter was born at Kennels von Lotta!
Very exciting news - our own Nemka vom Alpenhof gave birth to 11 fat, healthy puppies! She is very proud of them and so are we. The father is the famous Ham von der Urbecke who went VA4 (Excellent Select) at the 2005 USA Sieger Show in Reno, NV in very strong competition.
We expect these puppies will have the stunning appearance of their parents, and confident friendly characters. We are looking forward to great show careers for some of them, and to hearing all about their development from our future puppy owners.

September 1-3, 2006 Sieger Show 2006, Oberhausen, Germany
Zamp vom Thermodos was crowned as new world Sieger this year in Oberhausen, Germany. Quantum von Arminius and Orbit vom Hühnegrab followed. Initially, with proper deference, Quantum was marching ahead of his son. Two-thirds into the class, Zamp was moved to the first place - every GSD enthusiast really had to be present at the stadium at that moment - such pandemonium is impossible to discribe!
Zamp's progeny looked phenominal - well deserved victory for this stunning male. Some other progeny... Sieger Show 2006 results more Sieger Show 2006 pictures

September 13, 2005 V Sierra vom Ochsentor, SchH3, has arrived from Germany!
The princess is here, Sierra! We took her out of her crate right there at the airport and she greeted us happily. She has rock-solid nerves: she was not in the least confused by strangers, or even the loud noise of jet engines nearby. She happily went for a walk with me, and then rode calmly home.
Sierra is extremely outgoing, confident, and energetic. She loves to play, her drives are perfect, and she is crazy for her ball. Sierra is expecting a litter from 2 x VA3 (BSZS) Erasmus van Noort SchH3, IPO3, FH2

March 12, 2005 Kennels vom Lotta Hits Grand Slam at USA Regional!
The 2005 USA Southeastern Regional Conformation Show and Breed Survey was hosted by the Fayetteville (NC) Schutzhund Club.
Both Nemka vom Alpenhof and Fanta vom Dreieichenbuckel won first place in their classes with the honorable Judge Wilfried Scheld, SV presiding! Nemka won SG1 in the Young Dog class (12-18 month) and Fanta took VP1 in the Junior Puppy Class (6-9 month). Even Handra vom Alyeska, our working line puppy, was awarded VP! (Very Promising). Not even every show line puppy is awarded VP, so we are very proud of Handra.
December 5, 2004 Nemka vom Alpenhof Awarded BH at Schutzhund Trial
The trial was hosted by the Central Alabama SchH Club of Birmingham with Judge Michael Caputo, Ph. D., USA. The BH is a prerequisite for the SchH1 title. BH consists of two parts: an obedience test and a temperament test. In obedience, the dog must perform the “heel” exercise on and off leash with various turns and in a group of strangers. The dog must also demonstrate “sit” and “down” out of motion, fast “recall,” and composed “long down” under distractions. During the temperament test the dog is to show calmness and confidence during challenges such as various types of traffic, another dog and people walking nearby while the handler is out of sight, a group of people crowding the dog, etc. This test is designed to identify and to eliminate nervous, aggressive and shy dogs from participating in the SchH sport and breeding. Nemka passed this test nicely and is now on her way in SchH1 training.
October 29, 2004 Nemka vom Alpenhof rated one of the best dogs in the country!
Nemka put on a great showing at the 2004 USA Sieger Show in Nashville, TN, placing 4th in the Youth Class (12-18 month) under the honorable judge Johannes Grewe, USA. Despite being out of coat for the show Nemka’s pigment, gait, and general structure were complimented by the judge. Click here

The USA Sieger Show is one of the biggest annual national events and is conducted under German SV regulations.
September 30, 2004 Fanta vom Dreieichenbuckel arrives from Germany
We are very thrilled with this newest addition to our kennel. We selected Fanta because both of her parents (VA6 Quantum von Arminius SchH3 and V Assi vom Dreieichenbuckel SchH3) are excellent and proven producers and we expect some great things from this combination! Assi is also mother of VA4 (BSZS) Cindy vom Dreieichenbuckel.
Fanta shows great promise already, both in conformation and temperament. Upon arrival Fanta enthusiastically investigated the house and yard and demonstrated the meaning of great food drive! Click here
