Our dogs represent loyalty, intelligence, compassion and security. Our breeding males and females represent the finest German bloodlines and heritage. Our young adults are individuals, born here or imported, that we believe show exceptional promise and we have chosen to reserve them to be evaluated for our breeding program. We invite you to explore and learn about our dogs and their family lines, titles, and awards.
Our Philosophy & Standards
We follow and feature bloodlines determined by the SV (German Kennel Club) to be the most proven. We do not include the American bloodlines as we are focused on promoting the German standards, and consequently use only kkl1 (koerklasse) rated dogs in our breeding program. A kkl1 dog is determined by a German breed warden to be "highly preferred with no faults." A kkl2 rated dog has been determined to have a structural fault that, while not preventing the dog from being bred, is to be taken into account and any breeding should work to overcome that fault. Our goal is to promote the kkl1 standard as we are consistently aiming to improve the breed.
Most of our imported adults are rated V (Excellent) or VA (Excellent Select). These are the two highest ratings that are awarded to a German dog and those are the bloodlines we want in our breeding program. We also feature dogs that have earned a Schutzhund or IPO title. These titles are indicative of the quality of the mind, temperament and drive present in our breeding dogs and that is has been proven on the training or show field. These are qualities that are generally reflected in their puppies.
Additionally, we choose to import and use in our breeding program dogs whose hips and elbows have been rated Normal (the highest rating) or Fast Normal (the second highest rating). We also take into account the hip and elbow rating of the previous generations as well and focus on dogs who have a proven lineage of Normal or Fast Normal hips and elbows.
We are often asked if our breeding males and females are available. If, during your visit or based on our website, you determine that one of our adults is the right fit for you, we are happy to discuss the purchase of one of our titled breeding adults.
