Stony Grove Kennels is a CKC Registered kennel located 20 minutes west of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
In 2001 we started breeding German Shepherds, then in 2013 we purchased our first Rottweiler. We love both breeds as they have similar characteristics. They are both extremely intelligent, watchful, alert, obedient & loyal while they are also both courageous and very powerful breeds.
The German Shepherd Dog is one of the most popular breeds ranking #2 in the world
They are an intelligent and capable working dog. Their devotion and courage are unmatched. They are amazingly versatile and excel at anything they are trained to do. For instance: Schutzhund, service dog, police & military, herding, search & rescue, drug detection and last but not least a faithful family companion.
Max Von Stephanitz is credited for developing the breed in Germany in 1889. He was a career cavalry officer and spent some time serving at the Veterinary College in Berlin. Here he gained valuable knowledge about biology, anatomy and the science of movement, all of which he later applied to the breeding of dogs.
The Rottweiler, what makes this dog so popular?
The Rottweiler ranks # 8 in the U.S. for the first time, in almost 20 years.
The Rottweiler is good natured with a calm temperment but also has the ability to guard and protect like the German Shepherd. His intelligence, endurance and willingness to work is what makes him suitable as a police dog, service dog, herder and obedience competitor. They do very well in flyball, cart pulling & agility trials. They also excel in Schutzhund, search & rescue and as therapy dogs. Like the German Shepherd Dog they also make a faithful companion.
