Baden K-9 has been known for years for their lines of Working Dogs. Most renowned is the Baden Shepherds Dog.
Baden's Malinois and Dutch Shepherds are the other dogs which have gained noteriety throughout the years. We are now breeding, raising and training Airedales and Giant Schnauzers..

Baden's German Shepherd's Dogs
The German Shepherd's dog is one who shows unquestionable intelligence, loyalty and courage.
Through careful breeding and with the use of "breeding warrens" Von Stephanitz of Germany, deserves the credit for developing the structurally sound and highly intelligent German Shepherd's dog.
See more on our Yesterday's German Shepherd's Dog page.
A German Shepherds Dogs can differ in color. Strong, rich colors are perferred with definite pigmentation. The weight is usually between 60-85 lbs., the male weighing more. They should have the look of quality and nobility, yet never hostile.
The German Shepherds Dogs development in North America can be largely attributed to the soldiers of World War I who, upon returning home, told of the dogs that served so courageously in the battlefields. Rin Tin Tin, as well, proudly brought prominence to the breed. A true Working Service Dog, turned actor, he proved stability and intelligence in dog and handler could accomplish anything. Soon Law Enforcement made use of this noble dog. So common was his place in Law Enforcement he was often called a Police Dog, a name that is still used at time today.
In Britain, during the Second World War, the name was changed to Alsatian Dog. Today, it is once again, more commonly called the German Shepherds Dog.
Baden's Dutch Shepherds Dog
Dutch Shepherds, often known as "Dutchies" in Holland, were originally mainly used as a farm dog. They come in a variety of coats, short coat, long coat and a rough coat.
Today many are a brindle color. The brindle varies from a dark bringle to a tiger stripe.
Their colouring is a natural camouflage, making them an excellent dog for Military and Law Enforcement.
They are muscular and of medium working size.
There are little known genetic health problems in the Dutch Shepherds Dog.
Many breeders continue to hold no papers for their dogs and hope to continue this practise so the Dutch Shepherds Dog will not fall into the same category as the German Shepherds Dog who have, due to poor breeding practices, created many German Shepherds with structural problems which we are all familar with.
Hip Dysplasia being the main genetic health defect.
Baden's Dutch Shepherd puppies are the offspring of skilled, well trained and experienced K-9 Soldiers.
Dutch Shepherd's are very capable of making decisions on the run. They are all day trackers. Once these dogs hit the street they have the ability to function in all areas. These dogs are evenly tempered, very intelligent, stable and make an excellent working dog that will fit into a family environment. These same attributes make them an excellent dog to train.
Baden's Malinois (Belgian Sheepdogs)
The Belgium Shepherds Dogs are another group of Working Dogs. There are four distinct types of these dogs. They are the Malinois Shepherd, Groenendaeler, Tervuerense and the Laekense. The Malinois, of the four mentioned above, is best suited, in our opinion, for the Working Service Dog.
The Malinois has it's name from a town called Malines, otherwise known as Mechlin, in Belgium.
The other three types many say, differ only because of color, length and texture of coat. My opinion is the selection of looks is based on personal likes and dislikes. I find these dogs differ in more than coat variations.
They are able to endure the various climates characteristic of the Belgian climate.
Although the Malinois have the instincts and drive to be excellent Law Enforcement dogs they are stable enough to be good devotted family dogs to responsible dog owners.
Baden's Giant Schnauzer's
Known for many years as the Muchener, the Giant Schnauzer's have worked as cattle and driving dogs.
Von Stephanitz places the Giant Schnauzer's origin as Swabia, in the south of Bavaria.
It was before the World War that the Giant Schnauzer began to come to nationwide attention in Germany.
They proved to be a valuable asset to police work.
The Giant Schnauzer's coat is very different from most other dogs. It has two basic coats; the hardy wiry coat and the soft wool-like coat undercoat. Some are a solid black, some are of a salt and pepper combination colour, from a dark gray to a silver gray. They vary in weight; anywhere from 60-85lbs depending on the sex, height and bone structure.
It is reported the Red Cross for guard duty during World War 1,used the Schnauzers. Their dependability is a leading characteristic of the breed as well as their unfailing loyalty.
The Airedale Terrier was originally known as the Waterside or Working Terriers, originating out of Yorkshire, England.
This name was not thought as not being distinctive enough and was changed to the Airdale (named after the valley of the Aire.)The original weight of these dogs varied from 40-60 lbs.
Their coat is hard, dense and wiry. The head is usually a rich tan color, with the body being black or dark grizzle.
The German army adopted the Airdale as both messengers and scouts.
They have been used on a global basis for various duties.
These dogs have been bred and trained for both war and peace work. Their keen hearing and their intelligence have proved to be of great value as a Working Dog. Many stories, which have been placed on record, tell of their courage and devotion as war dogs.
Airedales, once again, are finding their place back as a Working Dog.Baden has trained and placed Airedales in Police K-9 units with great success.
