Todorhaus German Shepherds













About Us. . .


Todorhaus German Shepherds was established in 1982. We bought our first pet Shepherd, a sable male named Jecoda's Pecos Pete in 1977. We joined the German Shepherd Dog Club of Minneapolis/St. Paul and the German Shepherd Dog Club of America.

We started going to obedience classes and then we went to a couple of breed classes.

We entered Pete in some local shows, both breed and obedience. In the breed ring he came in dead last, but in the obedience ring he earned his Companion Dog title in one show weekend. We were hooked!!

Our next Shepherd was a show puppy. Her name was Ch. Jecoda's Double Trouble, CD, OFA, ROM. She was everything we had hoped for, and became our foundation bitch. We only bred her three times. She produced six champions and two major qualifiers. Our son, who was 12 at the time, took her to obedience classes. He completed her Companion Dog title in four shows. She was awesome in everything she did.

We breed our Shepherds for sound temperament, good health and longevity, plus to be able to do what they were bred for - a working dog. We only use dogs in our breeding program that are OFA certified.

We breed one or two litters a year. We feel that any more than that is not fair to the puppies. They need lots of attention, and let's not forget the older dogs. They need attention too.

Todorhaus has predominantly American lines, but occasionally we do breed to German lines. We do a great deal of conformation showing, but our dogs also work in herding, agility, and tracking, and I have always donated some dogs to the service community.We do not donate to individuals, only to the organizations.

Todorhaus lines have blacks, sables and the traditional black and tans.
