Ed Frawley's dogs work in law enforcement, S&R, Personal Protection and the sport of Schutzhund. Breeders from all over America have bought Leerburg bloodline dogs to strengthen the working ability of the dogs in their own breeding facility.
Ed Frawley (the owner of Leerburg) has trained dogs since his boyhood. Ed got involved in the sport of Schutzhund in 1974, becameHe is currently a member of Schuzthund USA and the German SV (the German Shepherd Dog Club of West Germany)
Ed went to his first police K9 training seminar in 1978 and started to produce training videos in the early 1980's. Since he began breeding German Shepherds in 1978 he has produced over 350 litters of German bloodline German Shepherds. No one in America has done this.
Since 1977 all of the bloodlines on dogs in Ed Frawley's Leerburg breeding program have been imported from Germany. Germany has two distinct categories of bloodlines in their German Shepherds. There are working bloodlines and show bloodlines. For almost 30 years Ed has only bred working bloodline German dogs. This fact has shaped the quality of the dogs he produces today.
Since starting the video business in 1980 Ed Frawley has produced over 120 dog training videos. More than anyone else in the world. The quality of his work is recognized around the world as the best dog training videos available anywhere.
