"Distinctly Beautiful German Shepherd Puppies"

We breed large, healthy, calm temperamented German Shepherd Dogs that you will love.

Our German Shepherd puppies go to homes across the US and Canada.

The Boys

While our girls are the heart and soul of our breeding program, our German Shepherd boys are the muscle behind it. These boys are awesome dogs with great temperaments that are ready to pass on their lines. We OFA certify all of our dogs before we breed them and do DM testing as well. These boys were absolutely adorable German Shepherd puppies and will produce stunning pups of their own. They love romping around in the mountains around Alaska and heading out on the boat with Josh to go fishing! Take a minute to meet our long haired German Shepherd puppy Char Char and his large, standard coat friend Blue!

Who is in Charge When You are Grooming?

Cobalt has a personality to go with his stunning looks. His eyes almost display the will that lives inside of this small, beautiful German Shepherd Puppy. I absolutely love him and he is a ton of fun to have around our kennel. The other night, it was time to trim his nails....

Choosing a Veterinarian

Choosing a Veterinarian is a big decision. Your vet will play a major role in keeping your dog healthy and it is best if you have the same vet from puppyhood on. Choosing a vet is super important and is not something you should take lightly. There are plenty of websites out there that will rate vets, but we don’t think they are a very good way to choose your vet. We’re going to lay out a few ways for you here that will make choosing a veterinarian easy....

Lower the Bar When Training Your Puppy

Training your puppy absolutely must be fun. You also need to work as hard as you can to set your puppy up for success. One of the largest keys to training your puppy is setting the bar low. If you’ve ever wondered why some people have perfectly trained puppies and you’re having a problem, I am going to help you fix that. Like I’ve said before, at his core your dog wants you to tell it what to do. There may be some things in the way of that...

What to Feed When Your Dog Has An Upset Stomach.

It can be tough to know what to feed when your dog has an upset stomach. Feeding your dog the right food when he has an upset stomach can help speed their recovery. No one likes having a sick puppy. Having a sick puppy can mean coming home to an unpleasant clean-up job in their kennel or having to call a carpet cleaning company. Not to mention your poor puppy. When we get sick, we don’t eat the same foods as we normally would and neither should your pup....

She is by far one of the most beautiful Long Haired German Shepherd puppies I have ever seen. I was excited to get her long before she...

Remind Your Children: Dogs are Animals

My dogs are my children and we love them, but I never forget that they are animals. Too often, we read heartbreaking stories of children being hurt (or worse) by dogs. There is a story in our news here in Anchorage about a 2 year old girl being brutally attacked by a sled dog this weekend. It’s horrifying to read, but if you want to, you can read it here. Basically a family that owns some sled dogs (common here in Alaska) for mushing was visiting and feeding them....

Is Owning a Dog Worth the Pain?

Owning a dog is really just a countdown to heartbreak. We’re going to explore whether owning a dog is worth the pain It may be bad business for a breeder to write a post reminding readers of the heartbreak that accompanies dog ownership. However, in trying to be ethical breeders of German Shepherd Puppies, we try to be pretty real with you. There are very, very few things that make grown men cry as easily as saying goodbye to their dog. It’s the worst. This is where your inability...
