We strive to produce high quality working line German Shepherds where sound, balanced temperament is our top priority. We believe that a German Shepherd should work hard when given a job to do,no matter what the task.
When I first started training and competing with German Shepherds in the sport of Schutzhund, I believed that there was nothing better than a high quality, working dog. I loved the intensity, the drive and I just overall loved what they could do.
A few years later I got married and started my family. While training was always my passion, it still happened to give way to the priorities of raising children. My working dogs retired from the sport and became loyal family pets. Over the years I began to believe that there is nothing better than a quality family dog. I loved the good, balanced temperament that added a sense of security to our home, yet still calm and safe to be raised with the kids.
Fast forward a few more years, when I re-entered the sport. My old dog came out of retirement with such gumption and eagerness, you would never believe he ever took a break. My new, young female, who was raised as a pet her whole life, started showing great drive and promise right away.
My new outlook is that there is nothing better than a dog who can be both- the work you need done, and to be there for your family.
I believe that over the years there has become too much of a separation, and there is the misconception that it can only be one or the other.
I will continue to strive to produce dogs that live up to my standards, both on and off the field.
