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. We have only working lines... No West German Show lines, and no American Lines.
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 balance
in 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
and 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 known 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
caring and nurturing mothers, who are substantial in bone and body type and who are also known to possess strong genotype, 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 exactly the qualities
that we look for in our breeding dogs. By doing so, our dogs have proven to consistently pass these qualities along into their progeny.
