To ensure our dogs in our breeding program live their lives to the fullest, there is only so much room here in our particular home. With or four in-house working German Shepherds, it is a full time job. With that being said, we strive to continue to grow our program through adding more dogs. This is where you can come in..
The goal of this program is to place titled, breeding quality females in homes where they will be loved, continue to be worked (or at least maintained with some sort of job), and come back to VonGontaHaus for breeding no more than once a year. The dogs become active family members wherever they are placed, and are signed over 100% ownership to their family after their breeding contract is fulfilled. We typically don't want to breed females over 6 or 7 years of age. VonGontaHaus German shepherds will pay for the female, and will have her spayed prior to full ownership being signed over, in her 6th or 7th year of age, and there is a lengthy contract involved and an interview process for interested parties. Dogs in this program will be no older than 3 years old, will have all their health clearances, and come from European lineage.
The goal of this program is to place our pick puppies in homes where they will be utilized to their utmost potential. VonGontaHaus woud prefer to send their "pick puppies" to homes who plan to title these dogs in some sort of venue (agility, obedience, scentwork, etc) and use them in the future of their breeding program. You will need to prove you titled dogs previously or if you are a police officer, you have successfully trained bomb detection or S.A.R dogs. Contract beyond typical puppy contract is in place for these specific puppies. Upon contract fulfillment, which includes titles and hip X-rays, 100 percent ownership is signed over to the co owner and dog is spayed or neutered or brought back to VonGontaHaus for at least 3 breedings prior to full ownership being given to co-owner at the end of contract fulfillment.
