We focus on bringing the best available genetics in the German Shepherd breed and carefully incorporate them into our bloodlines, forming a physically and mentally sound mother-line, which produces excellent results from each breeding. With our German Shepherds, we like to keep our focus on only a few breedings a year allowing us to have ample time to raise and train the next generation to propagate the bloodline into the future, ensuring good genetics in our dogs.

For the benefit of the novice German Shepherd fancier, we have created an Interactive German Shepherd Breed Standard, which helps the viewer understand with ease what a German Shepherd should look like. This will be a dynamic source of information which should help everyone get a better understanding of the standard which defines the appearance of the German Shepherd and combat the misinformation but out by so many puppy mills and debunk so called "trends".
