Mark Kozitza, Owner & Trainer (est. 1990)


Kozies is a small personal facility, located in south central Minnesota, approximately 100 miles southwest of Minneapolis-St. Paul. Whelping 3-4 litters a year, from a breeding program that is 100% European working lines, OFA certified, temperament and work tested.


My breeding goals are to consistently produce German Shepherd puppies with the genetics and temperament to be trustworthy family companions (by that I mean living with children). At the same time exhibiting solid nerves, good working drives and maintain structurally sound with a rich dark pigment that is pleasing to the eye.

I hope that after viewing this site you will have an understanding of the type of the German Shepherds that I have and continue to produce here at Kozies. If you have any questions or would like more information about purchasing one of our German Shepherd puppies please feel free to call or email.

I personally believe that it takes 3 goods to make a great dog:

  • Good Genetics

  • Good Environment

  • Good Training
