About us

We are a very small family run breeding establishment.

We are NOT one of those big breeding facilities with lots of staff around.

We are taking care of our dogs ourselves, and that's why we know them so well.


The Figynberg bloodlines are mainly old working lines from East Germany (DDR) which we import exclusively from a certain area in Germany.


They are NOT Czech or Slovakian, which is often falsely claimed as DDR.

The term "working line" can be misleading. These lines are NOT bouncy sports lines, which demand constant attention, far from it. The true working lines are steady and calm until you switch them into work mode. They are bomb proof and do enjoy watching some fireworks with you.


You will find a high confidence in these dogs and no nervousness which is often found in many show lines.

All these character attributes and the ability to adapt to any situation allows them to be an easy to handle companion- or/and family dog. Even our seven year old daughter can handle them.


We can guarantee that all our dogs are absolutely safe.

All our puppies come with a life long 'support' from us. No matter how small the problem might be, we are just on the other end of the phone.



I started with working dogs on a small farm in North Wales as a young boy, working mainly with Collies until I got my first German Shepherd when I was12 years old. "Shena" was a rescue dog and came with many behaviour problems, which we worked on to end up with a fantastic young dog, of which I gained so much practical knowledge. From now on I was "hooked" on working with dogs and the German Shepherd breed in particular.


Over the years I have bred and trained German Shepherds for the police service, HM Prison service, the security industry, personal protection, medical alert, search and rescue.


I have run a dog training school in Germany for 8 years, working with many different breeds with many individual problems, I had close links to veterinary practices, the police and rescue centres and became known as the dog trainer who "gives the dog a chance".  I had much success with grateful owners and their "best friend". 


In 2014, I met my beautiful wife, Nicole. We became members of the " Verein fuer Deutsche Schaeferhunde" (German Shepherd Club). After taking a SV test and having our premisses inspected we were allowed to breed German Shepherds under our kennel name "vom Figynberg".


Since 2016 we are breeding successfully German Shepherd dogs under our KC affix "Figynberg". The perfect character, workability and health of our bloodlines inspire German Shepherd enthusiasts not only in the UK. You will also find Figynbergs in Norway, Portugal and the Republic of Ireland.


We have been inspected by Cornwall Council and we are licensed with a 5-Star rating to keep a breeding establishment for dogs.
