«The breeding of shepherd dogs is the breeding of working dogs; and this must always be the aim, or we shall cease to produce shepherd dogs.»

“I love animals and feel very strongly that people should not be allowed to buy a pet if they are not able to look after it. Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.”

Frequently Asked Questions

When should a German Shepherd puppy start training?2021-12-30T22:23:45+00:00

To train a German Shepherd puppy, start teaching it basic commands like sit, stay, and lay down when it is about 8 weeks old, use food, toys, and treats for positive reinforcement and try to keep training sessions nor longer than 20 minutes, so your puppy doesn’t get overwhelmed.

If you start out with a puppy, you have the opportunity to shape and mold its personality and develop your relationship early

How Can I Stop my Puppy from Biting?2021-12-30T22:24:15+00:00

Carefully watch your puppy for signs that he is about to grab your hand. Before he can do that, give him a soft toy or water bottle as an alternative. If puppy bites you before you can give him a toy, make the squealing sound a littermate would make when it is bitten by another pup – “eek” or “ouch”. Then quickly redirect the puppy to an appropriate toy that is “chew safe”

What does Schutzhund mean?2021-12-30T22:27:37+00:00

Schutzhund is a German word meaning “protection dog.” It refers to a sport that focuses on developing and evaluating those traits in dogs that make them more useful and happier companions to their owners. Schutzhund work concentrates on three parts, obedience, tracking, and protection. It was developed in Germany in the early 1900’s as a breed suitability test for the German Shepherd breed.

When should you start Schutzhund training?2021-12-30T22:28:01+00:00

People who start their training at 8 weeks of age the AUS (let go) will most likely be able to start around 4 to 5 months of age. Keep in mind that it is important not do drive work while the pup is teething. There are only two situations in training a Schutzhund pup (under 10 months of age) that should result in a correction. The first is to HERE (come) when called. The second is to AUS (let go) of an item when told to AUS. It is important that trainers keep in mind the early goal of training is to teach the dog that as long as he receives no command from his handler, he is allowed to hold his prey item. Poor AUS training will destroy this confidence. It is also important that the dog learns that the toys are the HANDLER’S TOYS and not the DOG’S TOYS. The dog learns that through training he is allowed to play with the HANDLER’S TOYS for a few minutes several times a day.
