Typecast German Shepherds are ideal in many roles. They’re active, intelligent and require engagement and purpose. They enjoy exercise, consistency, praise and reward. Their steady manner makes them easy to train for obedience, agility and rally competitions. They’re also wonderful companions and quickly become part of the family. They bond with their owners and are eager to please.
To breed for physical, mental and temperament characteristics, our lines are imported from Germany and the Czech Republic. Breeding from these lines creates superior offspring because German and Czech dogs must be certified for health, structure and temperament before they can be bred.
We breed both Show Lines and Working Lines. The puppies are raised in our home in the quiet, green valley of Yucaipa, California on an acre and a half, surrounded by horse pastures and trails. During the early days, puppies live with their mother in the kitchen or bedroom. They receive the protection of living indoors with their mother and our family, while becoming accustomed to sights and sounds of the family environment. As they mature, the puppies explore more areas. An early, loving environment sets the framework for on-going socialization, which is very important.
Preparing a puppy to go to a loving home starts with the parents. They’re tested for hip/elbows dysplasia and Degenerative Myelopathy, and must be negative for both. After the puppies are born, they’re wormed two to three times, receive required vaccinations, and get a health warranty. They also go to their new home with a puppy information notebook, AKC registration and CH titled parents, written warranty.
Show LINES and Working Lines
Whether show lines or working lines, both strive to follow the Breed Standard set by Max Von Stephantz, the breed founder.
Show Line GSDs usually have lower drive. In temperament, they’re more sensitive and aware of the environment. They’re larger, with more pronounced angulation and topline. They have a flowing movement with a ground-eating stride. Their coats are longer, plushy and uniform. Their colors are often black/red as well as black/tan. Other colors are acceptable, although more uncommon. They’re great family dogs, work well in protection and perform well in competition.
Working Lines GSDs have more emphasis on high drive, especially prey drive, trainability and solid nerves. They’re unruffled by outside influences, people, gunfire and other stimulus. They’re more square and thicker with topline/ angulation not being a significant consideration. Their coats are usually much shorter, dense and tight. They’re often sable, variations of sable or black. They’re also intelligent and want to engage with their owner and handler. They’re great family dogs, work well for protection and perform well in competition.
