A. Yes! We first make sure you are fully prepared for dog ownership in our interview process in purchasing a puppy, and are not buying into a 12 or 14 year commitment on the spur of the
moment. However, we always welcome back puppies and adults that we have bred. We don't want to see our dogs wind up in animal shelters. We don't give a refund because you changed your mind a few months after you bought your dog, because we assume you made an informed decision. We also understand you haven taken your dog to a trainer if you needed help. But we do understand life events can happen that are beyond your control sometimes. This rarely happens, but unfortunately life events can get in the way.
In any situation, we are here to offer a home for any of our dogs.
A. We feed pawTree to our adults, as kibble, as our 5 Star food. We really believe in this food. . We also add in a vitamin and joint supplement, plus wild Alaskan salmon oil. Puppies are weaned onto milk, beef, and kibble mash. By the time they are ready to go to their new homes, they are eating dry kibble We offer a 9 year health guarantee if your puppy stays on this food and supplements plan.
Our police officers and veterans automatically receive a 10% discount. But we are especially fond of people that train and title their dogs. Currently, it is $50 for entry level titles (ex: BH or PDC) and $100 for higher level titles (ex: IPO1 or PSA1). For anyone who acquires a master level title (ex: IPO3), we will offer a half price of a pup out of a future litter.
We are a small, private breeder of imported working line German Shepherds. Our goal is to produce a versatile dog that can work in the field of IPO and then lie on the couch and be part of the family at the same time,not kenneled dogs.
All of our dogs live inside and are members of our family, therefore we do not have a kennel building and keep a limited number of dogs. This small operation allows us to spend more individual time with each dog and focus on only keeping what we have the time to work and title. Each litter is raised indoors in our "puppy room." We never have more than one litter at a time and not more than two litters in a year. This allows us the maximum time possible to focus on each litter and every individual puppy.
A. Of Course we do! But that's a bare minimum. The A.K.C registration is nothing more than a piece of paper proving the dogs are purebred, and has a closed stud book. It is in no way a certificate of quality or a way for the breeder to comply with the internationally recognized breed standard. This matters because many, if not most, German Shepherds seen in the U.S are of poor quality and they often suffer from health and temperament issues. Therefore, please do your homework before buying a G.S.D. We don't breed American Showlines. There are reputable breeders in the U.S who breed to a standard far in excess of the requirements of the America Kennel Club but they are relatively few in number compared to the many breeders who continue to produce mediocre dogs. Germany is the home of the German Shepherd Dog and its German Shepherds are universally recognized as the best in the world. Please continue in order to understand the difference between what is required in Germany to breed a German Shepherd and what is required in the US. That is why we focus on health testing of our dogs with O.F.A and perform the D.M test. That is why we have dogs directly imported from Germany or Netherlands, or one generation removed, from highly credentialed ancestors, to produce the finest dogs possible
