JANNA is a beautiful 11-month old black female German Shepherd Dog. With an impressive Czech working bloodlines pedigree (Sire Cento z Pohranicni straze ZVV1 SchH I KKL2 0/0; and Dam Lucy v Grunheide SchH1 KKL2 OFA Hips Good/Elbows clear) from a working kennel producing dogs primarily for Police K9. Maternal grandsire is a working Police K9. Her overall drive picture, character, and temperament show potential for Search and Rescue and recreational/competitive activities.

Janna is a very intelligent, energetic, nicely social young dog. She is highly affectionate and readily engages in play with her people; good with vet exam/grooming; travels well; no resource guarding/food aggression; housetrained. She is showing age-appropriate territoriality and home/property guardianship. Janna has shown to be highly trainable, responding nicely to early motivational training with food; transitioning to ball tug reward.

A highly agile dog, Janna functions enthusiastically on variable surfaces and heights; her confident 'can do' attitude and inquisitive nature provide a strong willingness to explore and experiment, with a solid rebound when encountering novel environments.
Brought to intermediate obedience with formal German obedience commands sitz, platz, hier, fuss, giblaut; and informal commands come, heel, walk, crate/wait/come out, leave it, fetch it up, give, watch it/take it/aus, jump up/jump off, walk it, brush/toes/ears. Progressing to extended sit/down at distance under distraction. On her introduction to master runaway wilderness search (go find) she shows strong drive and commitment, primarily trailing to the find.
