We are a small kennel out of Northern California that produces working line German Shepherds, primarily utilizing West German and Czech lines. We strive to produce an all around dog who can successfully compete in a variety of sports, serve as a working dog, and still be a member of the family. Our goal is to preserve the breed and continue the traits that have made them the versatile dogs that they are today.
"The most striking features of the correctly bred German Shepherd are firmness of nerves, attentiveness, unshockability, tractability, reliability, and the incorruptibility together with courage, fighting tenacity, and hardness."
- Captain Max von Stephanitz
