Welcome to my site! I have been a well respected and very
successful German Shepherd breeder for more than 40 years. German Shepherds are
my passion and my life’s work. NOT ALL GERMAN SHEPHERDS ARE CREATED EQUAL! To
be an excellent breeder takes a lot of knowledge and skill. I have studied
genetics, and European / German Shepherd bloodlines since 1976.
Because of this, I am able to produce the very best quality and
temperament for my German Shepherd puppy buyers. I want YOU to be happy, and I
want my puppies to be happy and in forever homes.
Most people that buy my German Shepherd puppies do so to
because my dogs are very loving and loyal family dogs, but also have very well
developed natural protective instincts to guard their home and family. Let’s
be honest, if you are not wanting a dog that is going to be protective you would
be looking for a sweet and passive dog like a Labrador or Golden. Those are very
lovely dogs, but as the saying goes, they will ask the burglar or attacker to
please throw the ball for them once they are done with their dastardly deeds. Most people get a German
Shepherd with the expectation that the dog will protect them….and it will, IF
it has been bred to do so. Many German Shepherds these days are what I call
Golden Retrieves dressed in a German Shepherd suit. They no longer have the
needed protective instincts that made the German Shepherd famous in the first
Why do I use European/German bloodlines in my German
Shepherd kennel? It is because the dogs are tested for health, temperament AND
COURAGE. This way the breed maintains the character and protective traits that
made the German Shepherd famous in the first place.
I am very careful as to what dogs I include in my breeding program. I want to be sure the dog does not ‘Just look good on paper’, but that it is an excellent dog in all ways. I studied the German language in college so I could talk to the breeders directly each time I traveled to Germany to select new stud dogs and bloodlines to import back to my kennel. Here are a few of the males I selected and brought home to the USA
My first German Shepherd (a bi-color) was born in the USA,
with European and police dog bloodlines. I carefully selected which dogs to add
into the breeding program generation after generation using world famous working
and show dogs, mostly from Germany. Some of my puppies have been from direct
imports, and others have up to 9 generations of my selected breeding program
behind them. I get very consistent results.
I bred Solid Black, and bi-colors (mostly black), as well
as the traditional Black red/tan saddle style in San Diego CA from
1976 until 2017. That is when I simi-retired and moved to Kansas. I continue to
breed the BEST SOLID BLACK GERMAN SHEPHERDS IN THE USA and TOP Black/Red Bi
Color dogs! No one has ever matched
the accomplishments of my foundation sire Eros!
I have many accomplishments with my dogs, all raised,
trained and shown by me. I hope you will go to my About Us page and read more
details about my experience and my dogs as I want you to feel confident that if
you buy a German Shepherd puppy from me that you will be happy with your puppy..
The more you know about me and my dogs, the better choice you can make as to if
you feel one of my German Shepherds will be the right dog for you.
My German Shepherd puppies are well socialized and handled
daily so they are very well bonded to people. This means they will adapt to your
home and family easily once you take your puppy home. The puppies are born in my
spare bedroom which I call ‘the nursery’, and when I am not in the room with
them, I am monitoring them on the baby camera. I make sure every one of my dog
babies gets off to the best possible start!
My puppies come with a written sales agreement and written
health guarantee, as well as detailed Puppy Care information, and guidelines on
how to teach your puppy proper manners. Contrary to popular belief, there is no
reason to put up with months (or years) of rude puppy behavior waiting for the
puppy to ‘outgrow’ it. By following my guidelines, you will not have to put
up with nipping, jumping up, etc. It is better to teach the puppy how to behave
from the beginning so the puppy learns manners in the first few weeks. Sure,
they are babies and will not be as well trained as an adult, but they will be
well on the way to being a blessing to your home rather than a curse.
I will share a story here. I retire me females from the
breeding program while they are still young. Many of my girls go on to a second
career as a service or therapy dog. I was sitting at my Veterinarian’s office
with Bristol. Of course, Bristol was laying quietly and calmly on a loose leash
next to me in the waiting office. We waiting to get her heath certificate so she
could move to Hawaii to be a service dog there. Bristol and I were both watching
the ‘parade’ of rude and unruly dogs come in, and watched their owners
trying their best to control their dogs as they barked, lunged or just generally
were jumping all over the place. I felt sorry for the owners of the dogs as well
as the dogs. Life does not have to be like that. (I owned and ran an all breed
dog training school for over 25 years as well as running my German Shepherd
The owner of a Golden had shoved the back end of the dog
under the chair in the waiting room so he could hold the dog’s collar with
both hands to try to keep her from jumping on everyone. The owner looked over at
my German Shepherd Bristol laying perfectly beside me and asked me, “How long
does it take for them to grow up and act like your dog? My Golden is 2 years
old”. I told the Golden owner that it is training, not age that makes a well
behaved dog. And yes, it is easier if you start with a puppy that is selectively
bred to have a high desire to please and is highly intelligent like mine, but
all dogs can learn polite manners. My guidelines will help you achieve that
happy level of control where you will be able to take your dog with you anywhere
and know it will be a pleasant experience for you both!
