My Story

I’m Lara, Owner of Haus Mahr German Shepherds & Training, LLC. I’ve loved dogs since childhood. My Dad trained Beagles for hunting so I learned a lot about dog training at an early age. I became a Certified Professional Dog Trainer and AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluator in 2010. I’ve had German Shepherds since 2007. My first German Shepherd was a working dog (SAR K9) named Radar. He is the reason I fell in love with this breed. I’m passionate about German Shepherds.

I’ve shown dogs in the AKC, CKC, IABCA, and UKC. My dogs hold multiple Champion titles. In addition to good structure, my dogs have the drive to be competitive and work.
