About Von Den Machtigen

My name is Alanna Carbonaro. I am the Owner, Breeder, and Trainer behind Von Den Machtigen German Shepherds and Belgian Malinois. I started this journey in 2016.  Through the years, I have met many outstanding mentors, trainers, and other breeders. These individuals allowed me to learn from them and grow a successful program of my own. To this day, I am always expanding my knowledge on dog breeding and training. Breeding top quality dogs is my passion. I am committed to offering excellent puppies to each client, while also increasing the quality with each breeding.


We strive to produce top quality working dogs by focusing on health, drives, temperament, and workability. Our puppies are superior in health with each parent being x-rayed with clear hips and elbows by OFA, Penn Hip or SV. Our puppies will create amazing companion dogs, as well as show and working dogs.

 We are located in Southern Utah on an 80 acre ranch. On our property, we have a state of the art kennel facility. We have a 10 acre trial ready field dedicated strictly to training and trials. We are also currently planning on building a large indoor training facility.


We are excited to share our passions of German Shepherds and Belgian Malinois with you. For more information, please visit the FAQ page.
