V-1 Klaus von Mayhaus


'94 Canadian Sieger, Multi V-1, Klaus vom Mayhaus, SchH1, ZtP, Bh, CGC, RTD, is loved and owned by Jennifer and Eric Snyder of Morgenstern Rottweilers in Vacaville, California.

Klaus won the 1994 National Sieger Show in Canada under the Head ADRK Judge, Helmut Frieburg, and is also a Sieger with the United States Rottweiler Club.

Klaus has OFA certified "Good" hips, OFA certified elbows, tested clear of "VWD", and his thyroid is normal. He is multi-V rated, which is the highest rating given to a dog at a Sieger (German style) show. He has earned his ZtP, an abbreviation for Zuchttauglichkeitsprüfungsbericht, which means "breed stability test" in German. The Germans have used this test for decades as a foundation for maintaining the Rottweiler in type and temperament. Before any Rottweiler can be bred in Germany, it must have passed the ZtP. Klaus passed his ZtP at the very young age of two.

Klaus has also earned his Begleithunde title, or "BH", this is the German title for the Companion and Traffic Sureness Dog. This is an obedience title required for the ZtP and before the Schutzhund title, proving that the dog has a stable temperament.

Klaus has also earned his Canine Good Citizen title, a test given by AKC to prove a dog is a "well-behaved citizen". He is also a Registered Therapy Dog and actively visits schools and convalescent homes for socialization with the public.

Klaus completed his SchHI in April of 1994, at the age of two years old. He comes from a family of top working and conformation dogs. Klaus has exceptionally dark eyes, mouth pigment, and very dark and rich mahogany markings. He has an excellent temperament with lots of drive, and he loves people and children.
