DDR Kennel Production Statistics


Baruther Land Kennel

The Baruther Land kennel was one of the most active kennels in the former DDR during the years 1966 through 1986. Information about many of the top producers was compiled in the DDR Körbuch, with evaluations based on the numerical ratings generated by the old Wertmessziffer System.

You'll find pedigrees, photos, and progeny information for over 500 past and present Baruther Land dogs on the GSD Pedigree Search database.
