Our Mission

“Bred to be Champions”

We are a family-owned German Shepherd kennel.

We devote a great deal of time to reading, researching, and learning about every detail that encompasses the care and breeding of these exceptional canines and encourage everyone in our extended canine family to do the same.

Zwinger vom Bestinhaus is an exceptional German Shepherd breeder. The care and attention given to all the dogs is spectacular. If you want a quality dog, whether for show or as a pet, you can’t get any better than vom Bestinhaus!

Lauren Gomez, Buyer

“I love animals and feel very strongly that people should not be allowed to buy a pet if they are not able to look after it. Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.”

Lettie Hubbard, Buyer

“Absolutely stunning GSD. Their ranch is super clean and the dogs are magnificent. Zwinger Von Bestinhaus is a top quality Kennel and Alina and Chino are so knowledgeable on the breed. The care given to these beautiful dogs shows in the quality of each and every dog.”

Trish Hicks, Buyer

Knowing that Zwinger vom Bestinhaus had a reputation for breeding champion quality, Show-Line GSD’s, we purchased our male GSD from them. Army Ranger vom Bestinhaus is a 2.5 year old, 100 lb., professionally trained service dog. He has a fantastic temperament and we are able to take him anywhere without fear of being embarrassed. We are totally in love with him and got everything (and more) than we had wished for in a dog.
