About Us

Our little company and its German Shepherds

About the Owners

Velknerhaus was established in 2017 by Jeff and Mila Weckner (Velkner). Their love for German shepherds is something they have had for the breed since they were children.

When Jeff and Mila first met they began talking about someday becoming breeders and sharing their affection for shepherds with others. With their extensive knowledge, love and passion, they soon opened Velknerhaus German Shepherds.

Jeff graduated from Western Career College as an animal technician in 1983 and has an extensive medical background in veterinary medicine. Their passion for their wonderful animals is exemplary.

About the Company

Velknerhaus German Shepherds, located in Sacramento California, has been family owned and operated since 2017.

We consider ourselves more of a small outfit or a hobby breeder than say a full-fledge breeding organization and as such we have the time to give that extra personal care to our puppies and their parents.

We take great pride in the relationships we form with the families that adopt our wonderful Velknerhaus puppies and we will do everything we can to make sure you have a happy, healthy puppy for years to come.

Testimonials

“We got our puppy in July of 2020 and couldn’t be happier! Mila and Jeff were so welcoming and friendly. When we picked our puppy up, they spent time with us going over puppy basics to make sure our girl had a smooth transition. Getting our puppy was the best decision we’ve ever made. She is sweet, loving, very well-behaved and gets along very well with our cat. German Shepherds are a wonderful breed and our next puppy will, without a doubt, be from Mila and Jeff!”

Tara Cummiskey

We purchased our first German Shepard from Mila and Jeff back in December of 2020 and we are so glad that we made that choice. We wanted to ensure that our German shepherd came from a superior bloodline.  That is exactly what we got.  A puppy with a 17 world champion father and a mother who is not only a pure and well-bred female but an obedient one at that. Our little girl is so smart and she is only 17 weeks old and already taking commands like a champion.”

The Kreuzers

“My wife and I purchased a German Shepherd from Velknerhaus German Shepherds for our daughter. The puppy is absolutely amazing. She is beautiful and smart and she minds very well and we love her very much. Jeff and Mila are very passionate and knowledgeable about German Shepherds and they made us feel very comfortable with their hospitality. We highly recommend them to anyone interested in purchasing a German Shepherd of superior pedigrees.”
