About Us

The most striking features of the correctly bred German Shepherd are firmness of nerves, attentiveness, unshockability, tractability, reliability and incorruptibility together with courage, fighting tenacity and hardness. -Captain Max von Stephanitz, Father of the German Shepherd Dog

Our goal is to improve and maintain the quality of the German Shepherd Dog based on the German Shepherd Dog Standard. We strive for the highest quality possible taking into account genetics, anatomy, conformation, temperament and health. In this regard, our breeding program seeks to breed German Shepherd Dogs that possess superior temperament, correctstructure and outstanding movement.

Temperament is the single most essential aspect of the GSD. The GSD by necessity must meet the standard in regard to temperament. Its functionality and worth will be questioned and tested in every possible aspect of work such as police, herding, showing, companion, and protection. As such, he must possess the drive and desire to undertake the required task at hand. The GSD Standard states that “the German Shepherd Dog has a distinct personality marked by direct and fearless, but not hostile,expression, self-confidence, and a certain aloofness that does not lead itself to immediate and indiscriminate friendships.”

Structure. The German Shepherd Dog must possess a structure that will enable him to perform the tasks in which he was bred to do. The GSD Standard stresses that “the whole structure of the body gives an impression of depth and solidity without bulkiness.” The ideal dog is marked by quality and nobility. This first impression shows that the dog versatile, reliable and able to fulfill whatever duties given him.

Movement. The German Shepherd Dog was originally bred to be a herding dog. After all, he is a shepherd. Therefore, the structure of the dog must display a fluid easy transmission in which he naturally covers the greatest amount of ground with the least amount of effort. In this regard, the GSD Standard specifies that “the typical smooth, flowing gait is maintained with great strength and firmness of back.”
