Puppies are $1800 plus GST, and a $210 deposit is required in order to get in the queue for these outstanding working pups.  If you tell us what the future possible duties the dog will be used for, we will select the best puppy for the job, while attempting to match coat colour and sex where possible. Our Guarantees - Purchasing a dog or pup from us means that the dog will be able to do the tasks for which it was bought. That is, the health and the temperament will be up to your expectations. Any genetic or congenital problems will get you another dog, and unlike some breeders, we will NOT demand that you euthanize or return the dog you’ve fallen in love with. In addition, we will provide support for any developing behavior challenges you may need help with. Call or email any time.  
Upcoming Litters
At this age, pups have lots of play drive, and spend a good portion of their time chasing and having fun with each other.
At 5 weeks, puppy play starts to show the practicing needed for developing fighting spirit and leadership through power and strength.  This all sable litter is working on these skills.
Making kissing noises bring puppies from this Sunshadows litter, close to your face to see what's going on.
All of our breeding dogs are x-rayed at one year for a preliminary look at hips and elbows. If they look good at that point, we continue their training to ensure great temperament, and then at two years, they’re re-done and sent to the OFA for an official rating. Only then may that dog be entered into our breeding program.
 Our next three litters will arrive in the spring of 2021. We are now taking reservations for those puppies with a $210 deposit toward their $1800 plus GST, sales price. They will go to new homes 7 weeks after their birth, as that is the optimal time for bonding with their new families. (See the scientific studies by the ‘Monks of New Skeet’.

About our Breeding Standards We have carefully bred registered German Shepherd dogs and selected for temperament characteristics such as intelligence, loyalty, confidence, and a desire to please their owners through whatever tasks are set for them. They are natural guarders, but only when suspicious behaviour and threats are offered by animals or people.
All of our breeding dogs are x-rayed at one year for a preliminary look at hips and elbows. If they look good at that point, we continue their training to ensure great temperament, and then at two years, they’re re-done and sent to the OFA for an official rating. Only then may a dog be used in our breeding program.
