Breeding Outstanding German show lines to produce impeccable temperament, intelligence, trainability, and beauty.       

Our AKC registered german shepherd pups are highly trainable and we expect them to be able to be trained to perform in many areas of expertise such as working as a service and/or therapy dog, search and rescue, security dog for home and/or personal protection,  as well as could be a fantastic addition to someone's breeding program or a stunning guardian and excellent family companion.

Here are guidelines I have received from AKC regarding visitors during the Covid-19 Pandemic. 

I have been planning doing the items listed below in addition to us wearing a mask as well as requiring visitors to wear a mask or other face covering during their visit.  These are things that people should expect to happen when visiting a breeder's home or facility during this pandemic.  Be sure and ask prior to visiting if you have any questions regarding our policy as well as other breeder's policies should you visit another facility.  We do not have puppies currently available but hope to have some in the upcoming months.

 Guidelines for Breeders to
Reduce the Spread of
Coronavirus (received from AKC)

• Explain that their family’s health and safety is just as important to you as the health and well-being of
your own family, dogs and puppies.
• Tell what they should expect upon their arrival and why you are doing the things you will be doing. Tell
them your bio-security steps and stick to them.
• Ask if they or family members has cold, flu or allergy symptoms or recently had or overcame COVID-19?
• Ask if they or family members had close contact with anyone who recently traveled by air; went out of
the country; was in highly infected areas; or works in the medical field?
• Ask that young, older and compromised persons not come to the appointment. Limit the number of
people coming for a visit to two or ask that no more than two people exit their vehicle during the visit.
• Make appointments to see a puppy. Limit the number of puppies presented to a customer and provide
contactless driveway service.
• Make certain everyone washes their hands often with warm water and soap. Keep social distances (at
least 6 feet).
Reduce personal contact and prevent disease spread:
 Keep the time spent with customers to a minimum.
 Think and talk about all “touch points” prior to their arrival.
 Clean and disinfect all surfaces before and after each visit.
 Consider doing all transactions curbside or at the driveway. Do not restrict yourself to small
confined spaces.
 Do not hand the puppy to the new owner. This will put you too close. Set the puppy on the
ground or floor and then step away. Have
the puppy in a designated area before the
customer arrives.
 Disinfect all places that may have been
 Designate an area for customers to view the
puppies and limit contact with the puppies.
Make sure all surfaces are cleaned and dis- infected before and after the customers ar- rival and departure.
 When possible, do paperwork remotely. If
not possible, designate a table outside and
give them a pen, which they may keep upon
• If the customer does not take the puppy, immediately bathe the puppy with warm water and shampoo/
soap or wipe with disinfectant wipes made for dogs.

Examples are Mal-A-Ket Wipes by Dermapet and PetMD Chlorhexidine Wipes.
