I would first like to start out by saying thank you to Jan for helping our family to facilitate bringing World Renown and Legendary producing stud dog Drago Eqidius into the United States and to Peter for selling our family his beloved dog! This tremendous stud dog's producing track record is second to none and truly one to marvel at. In Jan's words, "Drago is definitely the best breeding dog I've ever bred- it is like diamond of my breeding. Many of my partners wanted to buy Drago."
We are truly blessed to be able to add this top proven producing Legend to our World Renown stud dog lineup. Drago has been part of our stud dog lineup since May of 2013. He is currently one of the most influential producing stud dogs for progeny suitable for top sport competition and serious Dual Purpose service work.
Drago produces such high versatility, intensity, and working willingness in his progeny, it makes them highly suitable for a huge range of working fields. He also produces absolutely PERFECT NERVE BASE, so you are assured a clear minded dog. He is also well known for producing extremely high intelligence level in his offspring.

He can boast being the sire of Multiple World Team Competitors including producing the # 1 working German Shepherd female in the World last year in Geischa.

It is truly exciting to see such a tremendous producing stud dog having such a positive improving impact on the working GSD breed. It is really exciting for Team Slovakia, and for the success of Drago's blood.
Drago is SchH3, IPO3, SVV1 titled, A 1 certified joints, 1st select breed class, V rated excellent working conformation, with a pronounced courage, hardness, and willingness to fight.
Drago is a VERY HARD male with EXTREME hunt drive, a HUGE taste for the work in all three phases, rock solid nerve base, enormously developed grip strength, extreme tracking aptitude, and monsterous ball drive. He is a stallion of a male with the most gorgeous working structure you could ask for in a top producing stud dog. He has a truly powerful build with huge boning, a tremendous head type with a very strong lower jaw, a proper stop, lovely almond shaped black brown eyes, proper ear set, correct front and rear angulation, short coupled with great rear impulsion, and rich dark pigmentation. If I had one word to describe Drago is would be "POWERFUL" because he is just exactly that. He is for an experienced handler only. More importantly is what Drago has produced. He is currently ranked as one of the top producing stud dogs to come out of Europe, and we are blessed to have Drago progeny to offer to our clients for many years to come, as Drago will be part of our stud dog's semen preservation program.
