About Us

Vom Ragnar® kennel is owned and operated by Natalya Babenko. Our kennel is small and we only have a few litters a year. However, we strive to breed healthy dogs with best bloodlines in mind. We breed dogs with good temperament and character. We breed to the established SV Standard. Our dogs are West German Showline German Shepherds. They are black and red in color. Our dogs are raised and socialized in a home environment with children and other dogs.
German Shepherds have been my love since my childhood. I was the biggest dog lover in the family. Thru the years, I finally had the opportunity to dedicate full time to my favorite work and my big passion the German Shepherd dogs. I’m able to raise puppies in a home environment, breed, train, and compete in shows.
We are proud of our breeding program and we strive to make the best match of our dogs to their forever families. We are happy to hear our clients criteria in their perfect dog and match the request as close as possible. We do not guarantee that we will be able to sell a puppy if we do not believe that it would be a good fit. This is a responsible way to make sure that our dogs never end up unwanted.

What does


Ragnar means?

My dog, Ragnar was raised and trained by me. With this dog I started the journey into to the big “dog world”. He is a half show line from his father side, and half working line from his mother side. He has excellent drive, protection instincts and willingness to work. He has many achievements in obedience and protection training. Ragnar was leading all the classes that he attended; I was always very proud of him. He is physically and mentally very strong. His name and great memories of him will carry all my dogs that belong to the kennel. Ragnar is now retired from the kennel, but continues enjoying his work as airport security. The name of “Ragnar” is a designation of the kennel, and a hint of luck.

This strong and powerful legendary name was given by me, to my first German Shepherd Dog. This name wasn’t giving without a reason, it was given to a strong minded pup, a pick of the litter male. The name that will carry present and future dogs in the kennel.

Ragnar is a historical old vikings name means the ‘The army of Gods”. Legendary Ragnar was a king of Denmark and the father of Viking leaders. Norsemen is referred to the group of people who spoke what is now called the old Norse language.
