Dodge County's Complete Training Center, CPDT-KA certified trainer!
The German Shepherd Dog originated in Germany in the late 1800's primarily due to the work of Max v. Stephanitz. He created the GSD as a working dog. With it's superior intelligence, strength and speed, the GSD has excelled in many working capacities including, Herding, Police and Military, SAR, Guide Dogs, and Personal Protection. The GSD should not be bred for looks alone, in doing so breeders are diminishing the strengths of the German Shepherd.
We are a small German Shepherd breeder located in Fox Lake, Wisconsin, conveniently located between Beaver Dam and Waupun. We have West German Show and Herding line German Shepherds chosen for breeding due to their stable minds, working ability and sound bodies. With over 25 years of theriogenetic experience, we have the knowledge needed to understand pedigrees and what the outcome of crossing lines should bring. Using lines that have extensive histories and fully health tested, helps ensure the progeny will be as planned.
Our German Shepherd puppies have excelled in Schutzhund, Herding, SAR, therapy work, as medical assistance dogs, family pets and obedience competition. We are committed to our German Shepherds and progeny for their life.
