Dario produces very robust body style, extremely blocky head type, and wonderful overall boning. His progeny always have wonderful character type, high trainability, strong working willingness towards their handler, and have excellent working versatility. Dario also produces progeny that have a super approach with children. Dario is SchH3, IPO3, LG-FCI Competitor, A1 certified excellent hips/clear elbows, SG rated.
Dario is a direct son out of World Famous producing Vito v. Waldwinkel and top producing female Inka v. Weinbergblick. Dario shares 3/4 of the same genetics as 3x WUSV World Champion Hank. Dario and Hank share the same famous sire Vito and also both go back on the World Famous M. V. Haus Pixner bloodline. I have experience with both Hank and Dario's puppies, and I really appreciate the consistent character type and overall drives in Dario's progeny. I have found Dario to be a very dominant producer which I really appreciate having in a top producing stud dog.

What can I truly say about Dario? This is a Shepherd of SUPER CHARACTER TYPE. He is absolutely faultless in his temperament, nerve base, discernment, overall intelligence, and his approach to life. He is extremely warm and loyal in character type and would literally do everything that he can to please you. He is a tremendously powerful male, of very dominant character type. He embodies what a powerfully driven, old style working German Shepherd should be.
Dario is a gorgeously conformed black sable male with deep mahogany undertones. He is a stallion of a male with tremendous presence, enormously developed character type, bomb proof nerve base, very intense overall working drives, excellent ability to settle, has a huge taste for the working in all three phases, has absolutely CRUSHING grip strength, will naturally defend his property, overall territory, and handler without hesitation, has proper tolerance for people outside of his family, and is a super improver as a top producing stud dog.
Dario is the ideal choice where improvement is needed. His proven producing track record is excellent as a tremendous long-standing successful producer, and again he has produced over 200 successful working progeny to his credit . He only produces standard coat type, improves upon proper pigmentation, is a consistent improver in strength of nerve base and overall working character, and has produced an outstanding record of excellent hips and elbows. He is a vast consistent improver anywhere where hips and elbows as well as proper working drives need to be improved upon.
