|My name is JoAnn Letcher & I am a proud tribal member of the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation.
My passion for dogs began some 35 years ago with my first GSD named Shoe. I have titled
several dogs in the sport of IPO as well as AKC and other dog sports. I have trailed at the local,
regional, national and international level. I am the current Secretary and contact for Kansas
Working Dog Club.
My husband John is a certified helper and excellent handler with many accomplishments under
his belt including local, regional & national level competitor. He is President and Training
Director for KWDC.
We are very active members of Kansas Working dog Club & Working Dog Club of America
We have been married for a little over 18 years. We have been raising, training and titling our
own dogs for about 19 years now. Working our own dogs gives us first hand knowledge of each
of our dogs strengths and weaknesses.
We both share the passion to maintain the integrity of GSD's with good health, strong working
ability, stable character and a sound temperament. This all starts with a sound breeding
Our first litter was born in 2002. All our puppies are whelped at our home. At about 3-4 weeks
they are moved out to the puppy house which has a climate controlled area with a dog door to
the outside which helps them become quickly potty trained, making it easier when the new family
takes them home. While they are here with us they experience a variety of floor surfaces.
Vacuums, loud noises and normal household activity are a normal part of their lives. They are
exposed to our other dogs, cats, children and a variety of other people.
We are open for visitation anytime, just please call first to make sure we are home.
When you purchase a puppy from Von Hartwin, you can expect honesty and a lifetime of
support for your new family member! Quality dogs for the discriminating buyer. Health,
temperament, and workability are our top priorities to ensure a lifetime of happiness for our
puppies and our clients.
We will help you in your search for the perfect German Shepherd puppy or adult,
WHETHER YOU BUY FROM US OR NOT!
Thank you for visiting, we hope you enjoy our cyber home.
