Family Raised German Shepherds & Professional Dog Training

We belong to the German Shepherd Dog Club of America (GSDCA)


We are a fancier of AKC, UKC & IABCA registered German Shepherds in Marcellus, Michigan. Our dogs are loyal family members that reside in the house with us and enjoy country life on our small farm. They are health tested through Embark, PennHip and the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals.

Our goal is to raise outstanding family companions that excel in showing, performance sports and working dog activities. Our dogs currently participate in conformation, detection, herding, hunting, mushing, obedience, precision coursing, therapy work, and tracking.

Our puppies are raised using Early Neurological Stimulation and Puppy Culture protocols. Our dogs come with a complete health guarantee and training support.

We do not have any puppies available at this time. Please contact us to be added to our wait list or to receive a referral to another reputable breeder.

Rescuing a German Shepherd is a rewarding experience! If you need help locating a rescue, please contact us.

We also offer all-breed pet services such as AKC Virtual Home Manners (VHM), Trick Dog and Canine Good Citizen (CGC, CGCA & CGCU) evaluations. Lara Mahr has been an AKC CGC Evaluator since 2010. Please note that all levels of the AKC Canine Good Citizen test must be done in person.

Our website is currently undergoing an upgrade. Please check back soon for updates.

Take this trouble for me: Make sure my shepherd dog remains a working dog, for I have struggled all my life long for that aim.”
