Breed Classes

The ADRK e.V. represents more than 1000 breeders out of 21 regional groups and 127 local groups. They all influence the breeding classes of the puppies. This can also affect the price of the puppy. In general, puppies out of higher breeding classes are more expensive. As result, puppies of Koer- und Leistungszucht (KLZ) cost more than such out of a Einfache Zucht (EZ). Totally we have 5 breeding classes:

  • KLZ = Koer- und Leistungszucht (Koerung and Performance Breeding)

    Both parents have got a Koerung and grandparents have got a working title

  • KZ = Koerzucht (Koerung-Breeding)

    Both parents have got a Koerung

  • LZ = Leistungszucht (Performance-Breeding)

    Both parents and all grandparents have got a working title

  • GZ = Gebrauchshundzucht (Working-Dog-Breeding)

    Parents have got a working title

  • EZ = Einfachzucht (Basic Breeding)

    Only one parent has got a working title

All puppies from our breeders are surveyed by a Breed Warden as well as by a veterinarian. Included in the purchase price are the first vaccinations, identification by microchip as well as a pedigree.

If you are searching for a puppy from a breeder, than please have a look into our breeder directory. All mentioned breeders from Germany which are shown there are recognized by the ADRK e.V.

Inclusion to the Breeders Directory

In case, you as a breeder want to get included into the breeders directory please use the form for links. You can use a pdf-file or a standard word-file. The column ZN contains the ADRK-Kennel Number.


The breeder as well as the owner of the stud dog have to inform themselves before the mating about the admissibility of the mating. All actual breeding values can be requested from the main office. The breeding values of the mates must not be older than 3 months.

Take a look at our matings in order to get an overview of the matings of other breeders.

As a member of the ADRK you can also contact our Breed Wardens in case of questions in keeping and breeding. They will advise and inform you about consequences that may arise by wrong breeding.
