Training Solutions for Better Behaved Dogs


Get to Know Us!

My name is Damon, proud veteran, previous kennel master, K9 behaviorist,  trainer and handler for/with the U.S Army, and currently registered Helper with the United Schutzhund Clubs of America (USCA). Thanks to my parents, I grew up with German Shepherd Dogs (GSD) and developed a lifelong love for the breed. 

Now, we have a small breeding program. We enjoy raising and training our dogs for participation in various dog sports and working dog activities, developing and maintaining an exceptional breeding program of working bloodline German Shepherds, and above all sharing most every aspect of our lives with these wonderful dogs.

We have been actively training and titling dogs, and while Schutzhund/IGP is our primary pursuit, we also participate in AKC Dog-sports, Rally, Obedience and Tracking. We value these activities as sports and breed tests for working GSDs, but most importantly as enjoyable and challenging hobbies to share with our dogs. We have trained and titled several dogs in several venues, and also have experience in the training of military K9 tracking, patrol work and drug detection, raising and imprinting young dogs to be placed into service with local Police agencies.

Unlike the majority of breeders, we personally raise, train and title our own dogs rather than importing them already titled or title-ready from overseas. We consider ourselves to be "hobby" breeders, so unlike many large commercial kennels we do not make a living off dogs. Our breeding program focuses on quality not quantity so we only plan on having a couple of litters a year. Our breeding dogs are titled and health screened, thus proving themselves of good health and structure, sound temperament and nerve, and strong working ability.  In addition, our breeding dogs are hip/elbow certified and health screened before beginning their breeding careers.

Our dam and sire were selected very carefully based on the positive impact they will have on our own bloodline and on the GSD breed as a whole. Our small, in-home kennel environment allows us to provide all of our puppies with a great deal of personal attention, socialization and early imprinting.
