Rottweiler Breeder-Craffenheim Rottweiler Events

ADRK logo
Craffenheim Rottweilers is committed to supporting officially sanctioned ADRK events, most specifically those which take place in Germany. We might not be able to attend these events, or ever compete, but it is important that Rottweiler lovers are aware of what our magnificent breed is doing in the ‘motherland’.It is also an opportunity for regular and passionate breed lovers to broaden their Rottweiler experience, and perhaps fall in love with dogs in their true form.

Below is the list of events, and we will be using photographs and videos taken by various official photographers and Rottweiler paparazzi and judges; to give feedback on this website.

NEWS:

1.The ADRK MS IPO (Masters) was recently held, and won for the 2nd year by Rainer Dersch and his incredible female, Bambam von den Wichtelhausern. To be German ‘master’ for two consecutive years is a huge feat. Coming in 2nd was Silke Dersch with the beautiful Aki von den Wichtelhausern (also a female) which made it a clean sweep for the family Dersch and their beautiful girls our of Donna vom Schwingbach.

3rd place went to Brooklyn von der Drachenhohle with his super breeder and true legend in the working world, Martin Jonietz.

4th place went to the sensational Ando vom Quant and Harald Baur with there being only 1 point between 2nd and 4th.

5th placed Carl von der Drachenhohle makes up the top 5 who will be representing the ADRK next year at the German Kennel Club (VDH) all breed sports event in IPO 3.

This year’s event also saw the final appearance of the special, Snoopy vom Amtsbach, who had started the event an incredible FIVE times. This is testament to his form, function, health and ability to compete and train for so many years. Bravo to vom Amtsbach kennels (Jorg) and to Snoopy’s owner/handler, Gabriele.

The Masters IPO for German Rottweilers is one of the most special events in our breed, an event in which the respect, legacy and true temperament of the breed is seen in its glory. While we personally might never achieve these heights or levels of excellence in dog sport – we can stand back and applaud, respect, admire and cheer out loud for every one of these exceptional breed ambassadors.
