Jiva's first litter arrived!
We are happy to announce the birth of our N Litter sired by VA Wind von Amalaberg SchH 3, KKL 1.
4 beautiful girls were born on Friday, May 2nd and according to the old rhyme, "Friday's child is loving and giving".
This exceptional litter produced 1 LONG COAT PUPPY! Our special girl loves people and water play; she is so much fun! All these sweethearts are cheerful, confident and energetic.
Puppies spend their first month in the kitchen, becoming accustomed to the scents at first, and then so many sounds and sights, and comings and goings. They have eager visitors from our "extended (through the dogs) family" and are much cuddled and loved. They mingle freely with the adult dogs when they are older, gaining confidence, learning manners and having fun.
Our puppies are very well socialized and well adjusted!
Puppies are ready to go to approved home. Check pictures on Puppies Page

This endurance test provides evidence that the dog is able to perform physical exertion to a certain degree without afterwards showing significant symptoms of exhaustion.
The German Shepherd Dog is a working dog. He must be capable of strenuous work. The required strain on the physical condition of the dog can only come from running exercises. Running places increased demands on the heart and lungs. It also tests other characteristics, such as vitality and toughness. The ability to endure is evidence of physical health and the presence of desired characteristics. These are essential for a working dog such as the German Shepherd.
Athos from our H litter excels in tracking in SAR traning.
Tracking dogs are trained to follow the scent of a person. In tracking tests, dogs are required to follow tracks of various lengths and degrees of difficulty to find articles which were left behind by the person who laid the track. This is a controlled way to measure a dog's ability to follow a particular scent from one point to another and a reflection of what a dog and its handler might be called upon to do in the search for a person.
While all dogs are born with the ability to follow a scent, not all dogs can be called upon to follow/find someone. Usually only a trained tracking dog that is willing to follow a scent that is selected by the handler can provide this service to the community.
