Our Philosophy & Standards
Our goal is to produce dogs with great temperaments, solid working ability, sound conformation, and kind, outgoing personalities. We want you to take home a confident and happy puppy ready to become a member of your family.
Our breeding dogs are registered with the SV (German Kennel Club) and trace back to German and World champions. We breed to the German standard. German bloodlines are not only beautiful but generally healthier with longer lifespans. We focus on the West German Show Lines. Not only are these the dogs we love, but they are well suited to being a loving family companion.
Most of our imported adults are rated V (Excellent) with heavy VA (Excellent Select) ancestry. We also feature dogs that have earned a Schutzhund, IPO, or IPG title. These titles are indicative of the quality of the mind, temperament, and drive present in our breeding dogs. These are qualities that are reflected in their puppies.
We choose to import dogs whose hips and elbows have been rated Normal (the highest rating) or Fast Normal (the second highest rating). We also research the hip and elbow ratings of previous generations, and we test for the Degenerative Myelopathy gene.
If you would prefer an adult, we are happy to discuss the purchase of one of our breeding adults. We are also happy to import a dog directly from Germany for you.
