Protecting, Serving and Loving since 1980
Our goal is to breed puppies with sound minds and healthy bodies combined with balanced temperaments, and that noble look. This combination makes the total package for a great German Shepherd, allowing them to become loyal companions, protective friends, beautiful family pets, and great working dogs.
Over the years of breeding dogs we have learned many things, but one of the most important is that having a dog as part of your family is a great and rewarding experience. Everyone should feel the love and devotion that a canine companion can bring into their lives. Another thing we have learned is we will breed for what we want, not what some judge wants to see, or breed because this dog has that title, or this title. All of our dogs are valued family members and receive the love and attention they deserve. We raise only a few litters a year so the puppies will receive the attention and socialization that is so important in their early development. It also allows us to spend time with each litter and watch them grow and develop into their own personalities so when it is time for the new families to choose their new puppy we can guide them into which pup is the right match. We temperament test our puppies from day one, and by the time they are ready to go we know them very well!
All of our dogs are OFA or OVC certified clear of hip and elbow dysplasia. All puppies will be CKC registered, micro-chipped, tattooed, de-wormed, vaccinated, vet checked and come with a written guarantee, as well as 6 weeks insurance. You will also receive a 5 generation pedigree along with a photo album, lots of fun info on puppy stuff and a health record of the puppy. We provide continuous after sales support and assistance to all of our shepherds and puppy buyers, and feel honoured when these people come back for their second puppy. We have one family who bought a puppy from our very first litter and have now owner 5 of our dogs!
Our puppies are born in our house where we can constantly watch over and monitor their growth and development. We have a video camera in the whelping room so we can watch the mother and puppies without always disturbing them. There is also a live cam so that people anywhere in the world can go on the internet 24/7 and watch the puppies play and grow. Once they are 5-6 weeks old, they are allowed to be outside in our big covered kennel runs so they get to interact with the adult dogs and see the big wide world. We believe that lots of handling, attention, love and socializing is essential for our pups. We spend many hours walking down Main street Courtenay and standing in front of busy stores with our pups!
