Kennel Pro-Step focuses on breeding and showing top quality german shepherds and gordon setters. We have two main kennel facilities, where the main facility lies in Norway, and the secondary lies in Germany.

Pro-Step Norway lies in the south-east of Norway, and is the permanent home for our gordon setters and other gundogs. It is also the main headquarters of Pro-Step, so our dogs are more often than not located there. Especially in periods when we focus on showing in Sweden.

Pro-Step Nordblick lies in Germany. Our kennel facility in Germany is most often used as training or breeding grounds, and our german shepherds are always housed at Nordblick when they are at their heights in their working careers, or during the time the dogs would get breed surveyed before breeding.

Pro-Step Germany also houses the headquarters for the SV (Schaeferhund-Verein), while Pro-Step Norway houses the headquarters for the GDA (Gundog-Association).

Affiliate's Requirements

Affiliates are kind of like "kennel friends". I will not sign up just anyone to be an affiliate. Usually, the affiliates are my friends here on dA who have active kennels. They will automatically be signed up as premium affiliates. Most of my adopted dogs will be from premium affiliated kennels.

Kennels who have adopted Pro-Step dogs, and regularly use them may ask to be signed up on the list, as well as the kennels who regularly comment and keep in touch and have similar breeding and kennel rules. The affiliates will be listed in alphabetical order by kennel name. Someone who asks to be an affiliate and gets accepted will usually be listed up as a regular affiliate.

There are two types of affiliates; regular and premium. Premium affiliates are the ones I list up myself, and have special reasons to be there. For example; the affiliate has done a great job being active with an adopted dog, and I know my dogs are going to a good home and being used, supported Pro-Step in one way or an other, or I have adopted multiple dogs from their kennel.
A regular affiliate is something almost everyone can become. It doesn't take much. It's enough that you take a part in my kennel activity by commenting regularly, have similar breed focus, and are an active member of TKC and/or in the GDA, so you can fully benefit off Pro-Step's features.

Affiliate Form
Kennel name:
Main account:
Kennel account:
If you have a kennel group/account or kennel website, please provide a link, otherwise just leave this blank.
Breed focus(es):
Affiliation rules:
link to your own affiliation rules
Breeding rules:
Reason for affiliation:
Answer these questions:
    1) Are you an active member of Kennel-Club and/or Gundog-Association and/or Schaeferhund-Verein?
      2) How many dogs have you adopted from Pro-Step? If none, what are you planning to get from us?
        3) If yes, have you shown or bred them? Would you say you have been actively doing so?

      Please do not ask to become an affiliate without ever having spoken to me, because that would kinda be like asking to be friends, or asking for free benefits.

      Happy Birthday!

      Happy Birthday! by Crookd-Estates
      It's impossible to look at this and not go "awwwwww!". Just look at those big eyes and that waggy little tail! This is one big dose of pure Mudd-awesomeness! Thank you so much for this gift, I love it!

      Pure Excellence by Kique7
      A unique and stunning piece done by one of my best friends, Kique, of my personal kennel's favorite GSDs, Stegg and Leah! I really love this, and it means so much to me, especially when coming from such a great person as you! Thank you so much for a truly stunning birthday gift!

      Gift for Stiir

      Gift for Stiir by SkyfallKennels
      This is so awesome, I love the way you made my Heist look! Thank you so much!

      Hunting Decoy

      Hunting decoy by Kique7
      Such a beautiful picture of such beautiful dogs. A guardian with two bird hunters. I always get so happy whenever I see setters, and even more happy when I see Erga! Beautiful piece, I love it so much!

      Heist for Stiir

      Heist for Stiir by ForgottenAmnesty
      A wonderful artwork of Heist done by ForgottenAmnesty for the DARPG Kennel Art Exchange. Heist is a young dog full of spirit, and you depicted it perfectly! What might be the most unbelievable thing with this piece is that you drew it with a mouse. I know of no one else that could pull this off as excellently as you did with a mouse. Thank you so much, I really love this piece!

      Adder... Sit and Stay!

      Adder.. Sit and Stay! by Maranez
      A beautifully done piece of Adder by the outstanding Maranez helping me out to get the service dog certificate for him. I just love the realism in it, a beautiful piece I must say. Thank you so much for helping me out, and making this piece for me, I love it so much!

      Pro-Step's Muscle Package

      Pro-steps muscle package by Kique7
      A set of titling images for my dogs done by the one and only Kique7 for christmas! Thank you so much for making me these, it saves me for a lot of work, and I love how it looks so neatly blended together in Kique style. I haven't seen anyone else who can blend such sets of images together like you can!

      Hey Stiir, I was wondering the following regarding the Bi-Monthly Confo Show at SV: I have an image ready for a new male coming {a ref}, but I hadnt posted it yet. Would it be possible for me to take the... lets say dog "layer" and use it for the Conformation Show, and then use it for his ref afterward? Would it be eligible for the show?
      Stiir 3 days ago  Hobbyist Digital Artist
      I'm afraid you'll have to enter the next show that starts the 27th, as the current show is getting judged now. :c
      But at the bright side, there will be plenty of time to get titles and such so you can enter the working dog class and have the chance to win the prized V-trophy! ^^
      Ahh alright, thats fine. I would've submitted it but with 'easter weekend', I've been quite busy.
      Stiir 4 days ago  Hobbyist Digital Artist
      Yep, that's fine, the SV has the same rules as TKC when it comes to refs; you can place a pose on eg. a show entry onto the ref. Make sure he is realistic and within standard, though!
      Aha, alright. Ill remember for the future . c;
      OrangeCone14 Apr 13, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
      I've got a pretty dark sable import I would love to breed to one of your males when she's ready!!
      Stiir Apr 14, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
      If she is realistic and within standard and will be surveyed with Schaeferhund-Verein, I could reserve you a slot :)
      OrangeCone14 Apr 14, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
      Ill look into that club tonight :)
      Thanks for the :llama: badge.
