Hopefully we will all live to see the day when the German Shepherd dog world will be under the same concept, that of a well-structured, perfectly balanced dog capable of performing at the highest known levels. Perhaps we will see the day when fashion gives way to balance and the Golden Middle rises supreme, not as a choice among many, but rather as the only sensible option. In the meantime, on the eve of the centennial celebration of the "king of breeds" on this earth, let us remember the final plea of its founder, Max von Stephanitz's last words to his good friend Muller on his deathbed,
"Take this trouble for me:
make sure my German Shepherd Dog remains a WORKING dog, for I have struggled all my life long for that aim".
IF YOUR LOOKING FOR A WORKING GERMAN SHEPHERD DOG, YOU
CAN'T GET BETTER
BLOOD LINES THAN THESE!

Enthusiastic and enjoys performing for the handler.
Superior bonding capability with the handler and naturally guidable, follows the obedience commands without hesitation. In protection work she is highly determined, barking is consistent and strikes quickly to the sleeve, hits hard with serious guarding in the out phase.
7-5-14 Brook and I traveled across country to the PetU SDA trial in Milwaukee.
She did an awesome job earning first place over 7 dogs in the Protection 1 (P1) title.
She passed her obedience with a great score of 96 and earned a honor title by passing her protection with a 92.5 on an honor decoy that she has never seen.
Once again she shows us she is just the kind of dog we love to have in our breeding program.
3-22-15 Brook earned her Police Dog 2 (PD2) with first place. She did her call off with such speed and accuracy both judges were very impressed.
She puts her all into everything I ask of her.
8-31-15 Brook earned her BN title, 3 legs in 3 shows. She finished with second place out of 8 dogs with a very nice score of 195!
9-21-15 Brook has now added her CD title, 3 legs in 3 shows. All legs with second place and one with a very nice score of 190 1/2.
4-29-16 Book worked very hard at her Police Dog 3 title. She did great on her obedience portion earning 93.5.
She was off to a great start on her protection portion finishing the field work only down 11.5 points.
She did not complete the building search, maybe next time. We are still very pleased with her hard work.
11-19-16 Brook and I were back on the field to try the Police Dog 3 title for a second time. Even though I felt very confident a few days before the trial, day of I was not so sure.
The sky was dark the rain pouring and everyone watching or on the field was dressed in rain gear with hoods. They all looked like bad guys!
For Brook this was not a problem. She knew her job and did it very well. She passed her PD3 with honors, she also earned the judge's choice trophy.
She is the first dog to pass this title with honors and one of the first two GSD to have earned it. She had an excellent score in her obedience portion of 91.1 and protection of 90.5.
She is always so easy to work and she just loves to please me.
5-6-17 Brook is now the very first dog to earn a Police Dog 3 (PD3) title at an SDA Championship trial. She did her job very well and took firts place on two honor decoys she has not seen ;-)

It was not an easy job and they both put in many hours of training to achieve such a demanding title. Great job girls!
Wish it had not been in the pouring rain so we could have gotten lots of nice pictures, we were not that lucky.
But knowing the weather conditions just makes this WIN even sweeter.

Remmie is showing us every day just what we would hope to get in any of our puppies.
Broad head and muzzle with terrific expression. Muscular and strong body type built for performance.
Highly trainable, steady temperament with remarkable capacity for learning. Her desire to bond and perform for the handler is extraordinary.
Highly motivated to work. She is enthusiastic and enjoys working, will do anything for a ball.
In protection she hits hard showing great power, along with full hard grips under pressure.
5-29-15 Remmie has now earned her BN title. Three shows, three legs 190, 191 1/2 and 193. We are very happy with how she is growing up.
6-14-15 Remmie showed us once again what she is made of.
She was entered in the SDA Championship in Pennsylvania to do the Protection Dog 1.
One week before the trial Goodie's dog Reika came up lame, and Goodie was not going to make the trip we had all planed for almost a year.
I asked her if she would trial Remmie for me so we could all have a dog to work. To my surprise Goodie said yes!
So with only the 5 day road trip to bond, Goodie and Remmie stepped on the trial field. On Saturday they tried the Police Dog 1 but fell short of the needed score to pass.
But then on Sunday they stepped it up for the Championship and earned their Protection Dog 1 with HONORS (P1H).
To receive an honor title the dog must earn 90 or above (Remmie's score was 92) in the protection phase on an honor decoy they have not worked before.
They placed third for the P1's. We are so very proud of Goodie taking on a dog she had never worked, and Remmie putting forth all she has to make this all come out good.
12-5-15 Remmie back at work with her litter just 8 weeks old. Goodie wanted to finish what she started in June the PD1.
Congratulations to you and Remmie for a job well done. It is very hard to trial a dog you are not living with.
11-18-16 Susan and Remmie earned their OB2 with first place and an excellent score of 91.4 ;-)
4-2-17 Now adding Remmie's P2S with first place, nice job Susan.
9-3-17 Susan and Remmie finished their CD title. They had a very nice run with a 191 1/2 for first place out of 10 dogs for their second leg
and finished with second place for their third leg.
9-24-17 Susan and Remmie traveled to Oregon and add a P2 title to their list of accomplishments, nice job!
10-21-17 Susan and Remmie have now earned their Police Dog 2 (PD2) with first place very nice obedience of 90 points.
A small set back in the protection when the decoy steeped on Remmie's foot making her mad so the next out took two commands ;-)
This hurt her score a bit but showed her commitment to holding on to someone that may try to hurt you.

I would like to share a few words that express my thoughts on breeding working German Shepherds.
There was a Germany before WW2 and all the German Shepherds came from that stock. What made the DDR program keep the dogs healthier and in some ways stronger in character is not the fact that they were bred in the northeastern part of the former unified Germany. It was because of the regulations the East government set for their police and working breeds after removing these breeds from the kennel club control and regulating their breeding programs governmentally. The dogs all came from the same place. But went into different directions because of different breed regulations and controls. Since the fall of the DDR and Germany's reunification, the West (SV) regulations have been the only regulations in place. And we all saw the direction the West dogs had gone with their attitude about breeding. There were some isolated breeders in Germany (West) who bred according to their own standard they set for themselves. Greif comes from one of those, as did dogs like Bussecker Schloss etc. My point to all this is that it matters most how dogs are bred, NOT WHERE.
Some dogs in West Germany, or Czech, or Holland, or Belgium, or Austria, or Switzerland were awesome. The fact that nobody seemed to care how these dogs were used in breeding is what caused the problems. It is getting very hard to find any good DDR stock.
There is no more DDR regulation stock.
So you have to settle for pedigrees with DDR dogs in them.
My point is that people slapping dogs who go back to DDR lines together does not make it a DDR dog, even if they claim 100%.
DDR dogs are German dogs anyway. The reason they were not messed up was because of the regulations the DDR had. Nobody follows those regulations, so there are no more DDR dogs.
Once again my point to this is:
dogs who produced the same traits are important

INFORMATION ON OUR PUPPIES and our CONTRACT
We have questions all of the time about the height and weight of our dogs. We have added that information by each dog. So we thought maybe we should add the standards for height and weight of the German Shepherd dog:
From Schutzhund USA web page: Size/Weight
Males: Height at the wither 60 cm to 65 cm.
Height 60 cm is equal to 23 inches. Height 65 cm is equal to 26 inches.
Weight 30 kg to 40 kg.
Weight 30 kg is equal to 66 pounds. Weight 40 kg is equal to 88 pounds.
Females: Height at the wither 55 cm to 60 cm.
Height 55 cm is equal to 21 inches. Height 60 cm is equal to 23 inches.
Weight 22 kg - 32 kg
Weight 22 kg is equal to 48 pounds. Weight 32 kg is equal to 70 pounds.
From AKC web page :
The desired height for males at the top of the highest point of the shoulder blade is 24 to 26 inches; and for bitches, 22 to 24 inches.
AKC KENNEL INSPECTION:
Our kennel was inspected by AKC on June 8-2016.
This is what the inspector had to say:
The breeder was in compliance with all rules and regulations with the AKC and should be commended on the overall care and condition of her dogs as well as the organization of her paperwork.
