Welcome to Coldwater German Shepherd Dogs of North Carolina, home of quality working line German Shepherds and the Kaltwasser line of German Shepherd Dogs.

A German Shepherd puppy can be your family’s next best friend!

We are a small family operated kennel located in the Northern Piedmont area of North Carolina. Our dogs are selected from imported stock of West German, Czech Republic, DDR, and Dutch working lines of German Shepherd Dogs. Excellent temperament, structure, and health are our chief selection criteria. All of our dogs have hip evaluations and health certifications in place. While our puppies often end up in competitive sports, Search and Rescue, protection or police k-9, all must possess the stable social disposition to be your family’s best friend.

A Little About the German Shepherds

While we do sometimes purchase titled or started prospects from Europe, we also often hold back puppies to start ourselves in IPO or companion obedience training. We train with Frans Slaman of Zen Dog Training. We occasionally have started older puppies or young green dogs available.

We offer to approved females  the German Shepherd stud dogs  Coal von Narnia, IPO1 and Octavio von Kaltwasser, AD, IPO1.  Sometimes we use quality outside males for genetic and color diversity. Our goal is to be able to offer your family the opportunity to welcome into your home your new best friend and family protector.
