Who is Koenigplatz Kennels

Welcome to Koenigplatz Kennel.  My name is Eric King.  I am the owner of Koenigplatz Kennel.  KoenigPlatz Kennel is a small breeder of Rhodsian Ridgeback, Lhasa Apsos, and Collies located in Greensboro, North Carolina (NC). We are approximately 1 1/2 hours from Charlotte and 1 hours from Raleigh. We only try to breed a litter about once every 18 months to two years.  The dogs in our breeding program often compete across a number of canine disciplines. These include conformance, obedence, Rally, Agility, and tracking.  Koenigplatz Kennels prides in trying to breed great temperment also into our dogs.  Several of our dogs are certified Therapy Dogs and active in the community.

We also strive to breed healthy dogs . Koenigplatz Kennel strives to exceed the breeding guidelines and standards set out by the parent clubs - Rhodesian Ridgeback Club of The United States (RRCUS), Lhasa Apso Club of America (ALAC) and the Collie Club of America (CCA). All dogs in our breeding program are health tested for the issues according to their breed.  As an example we test for hips, elbows, cardiac, Thyroid, DM, CERF and BAER at a minimum for Rhodesian Ridgebacks.

Also, I am the Board of the Furniture City Kennel Club and a member in good standing with the RRCUS.  We are also member of the Mid-Atlantic Hound Club, and the Piedmont Collie Club.  We are also member of the Lhasa Apso Club of America, and Collie Club of America.
