Upcoming Litters

We anticipate several Pure DDR Litters to be born at our facility this early summer and early fall.  We also anticipate a few litters of select working line pups from our Czech & West working line parents as well.  

It is highly recommended that you contact us well ahead of the litter due dates, to discuss the litter that most suits your needs so that you are able to get a deposit in place. Once our litters arrive, most pups have been fully reserved.

Check List before puppy comes home

  1. Your life will become suddenly busier.. .so try to get supplies you will need for the puppy BEFORE you are on your way home with your new pup!  
  2. Purchase a Plastic or wire crate,  large enough for him to sit, stand & lie down comfortably.  Teach him to learn to be contained in it without crying and tearing at the door.  I recommend one for the house, and one for the car.
  3. The Kibble recommended by your breeder... Check well ahead on this and have it at home for the pup when you arrive there. 
  4. Make sure your toys are puppy safe;  not too soft where pup can chew it up and eat it... not so hard that he doesn't want to play with it.  
  5. Be careful of what toy you leave with the pup in his crate overnight.  Make sure it is not something he can ingest... squeekers, soft fuzzy toys etc are not good for play whwen you are not there to observe who the toy will stand up to his roughness.  
  6. Be aware of a "toy" that presents a choking hazard.  Rocks are in this category.

Suplements we use and recommend

MSM supplies biologically active sulfur to animals' joints. A natural anti-inflammatory,  it has been shown to reduce the rigidity of cells in the soft tissues of the body. By reducing this rigidity, fluids are able to pass more freely from the cell and this helps to reduce cell pressure and discomfort.

Glucosamine provides the joints with the building blocks needed for good health..Glucosamine helps animals synthesize new cartilage caused by wear and tear. Much discomfort can happen in the Hip and joint when normal wear and tear 

break down the dog's cartilage.

Chondroitin sustains the fluid within cartilage tissue helping to lubricate joints and increase mobility. Chondroitin neutralizes
the destructive enzymes that are known to damage and destroy cartilage.  Chondroitin aids the entry and absorption of Glucosamine which is the building block of healthy joints.

Vitamin C plays a vital role by supporting immune function, helping white blood cells function normally, and it also promotes cartilage growth and tissue repair. Aging dogs 

may especially benefit as they become less proficient at producing their own supply of vitamin C

About Us

Working-Line German Shepherd Dog Breeder


   We are a privately owned and operated kennel located in the beautiful Pacific Northwest Region. Our facility is located on the
outskirts of the foothills of Mount  Rainier, bordering the rural towns of Roy/Graham - (Click here for Map & Directions) ,
where we have lived since 1977.
   Our Primary Focus is on producing beautiful and healthy dogs with structurally sound and solid working body type;  dogs that
possess and exhibit good temperament along with balanced working drives, thereby producing offspring who are also a pleasure
to live with.  Correct working body structure along with soundness of mind are extremely important within our breeding program,
with our goal being to produce offspring with the same solid qualities so evident in the breeding stock we choose to mate together. 
Sound hips and elbows, structural health, keen intelligence, steadfast loyalty and superior working ability are qualities
equally important within our breeding program.  Selecting correct, healthy working conformation coupled with keeping an eye
towards beauty, while never breeding for the sake of looks alone, continues to produce dogs from our kennel which possess
the correct balanced drives and which are also pleasing to look at.  We will not sacrifice these goals simply to produce
high-drive, overly aggressive dogs.  

   Our breeding stock consists of the bloodlines of precious old working foundation lines from the countries of Germany,
Czech Republic, and Slovakia.  We take great care to insure that our breeding stock is certified clear of Hip and Elbow Dysplasia. 
Our dogs are descendants of the most influential and sought after old foundation bloodlines and working lineage from
East Germany ;  such as the great Lord vom Gleisdreieck, Jeff vom Flämings-Sand, Sven Grafental, Held Ritterberg,
Ingo V. Rudingen and Don v. Rolandsteich, and from Slovakia, 6 time World Team Competitor, Norbo Ben Ju..and many additional
well known, great producers that have contributed to the well loved traits of the true working lines.   Our breeding females possess
heritage from the genetic history of the best known and most highly sought after proven working bloodlines for East German
and Czech/Slovak pedigrees; Bero v Friedersdorfer Fleur, Lido and Chery Jamirex, Figa Cega, Grim z Pohraniční stráže,
Iwo v.d. Buschecke, and especially noteworthy...the wonderful foundation lines from which the Czech working dogs originated:
the famous and well respected Czech kennels of  Pohraniční stráže, Jipo Me and Jirkova dvora.

   We incorporate the very best quality breeding females into our program; those which are known to possess warm temperaments
and are good mothers, are substantial in bone and body type and who are also known to possess strong genotype and are
proven to be consistent in passing on these qualities.   Our dogs are clear in the mind, and have balanced working drives with
sound nerves.  These qualities, which have long been part of the breed standard as requirements for the German Shepherd Dog,
are what we look for in our breeding dogs. Our dogs have proven to consistently pass these qualities along into their progeny.

IPO Sport, SAR / Scent work, Home Companions


Our focus is placed heavily on produocing pups for scent work, for use in SAR and canine nosework as well as other scenting specialties new to the working field such as sniffing out bed bugs, truffles and antler sheds.  Herding instinct is very strong in our lines, as is demonstrating a normal balance of suspicion for providing good family and home protection . 

Bred for Intelligence..Temperament..Health..Beauty


Our dogs are highly intelligent and devoted to their owners.  We look for parents that are well balanced with good work ethic to produce offspring who are biddable and that will take quickly to understanding your concept of training them in obedience and many other working venues. .
