I carefully screen all potential puppy buyers and require a huge amount of information before deeming them an acceptable home. Yes, even for "pet quality" puppies.
I have and will refuse a sale, if I do not think the person
would make a good life-long home for the pup.
Starting with a 2 page application, then I call and visit local applicants and for non-locals, I google their address to see location and neighborhood.  I offer a 2 year written hip
and temperament guarantee.


Please know, most breeders dont breed for a medium drive
or therapy temperament, as we do.

While searching for your next furkid, make sure you ask about drives, health & titles.
If any of their dogs or pups do schutzund, that is HIGH drive.

Not to say it is bad, as my dogs will do 2 of the 3 trainings in SchH.  Tracking & Obedience, just not the bite work.
They learn it, but dont have much "fight" drive to title in that
discipline. Another factor is larger size, so unless the helper is a larger fellow, most aren't going to train with a bigger dog up on his back legs, as which will be required come trial time, so this can become a training issue...where not being used to dancing on a sleeve on only rear legs may cause the dog to let go of the sleeve.

Our dogs are a blend of lines, a process that's taken a dozen years.
Bear had Swiss Working line in his pedigree, Phenyx came with Working lines in her's, same with Zeus.  It's a balancing act, and we seek to co-create dogs with medium aggression levels on purpose.
Think of a bell curve of  all GSDs where X is aggression, from a
    1-wont chase sheep to 10-will kill sheep. Y  is # of all GSDs.
bell curve
  Obviously the extremes are of no use to anyone. The ones left of center are nervebags, the middle or center of the bell is where most are, where we seek to be, centered.  The ones right of center tend to be more useful to K9 departments, and military.  We cherish the traits of the working lines, and you'll find our dogs willing and capable to defend, thus seek to insure good homes with folks who will take the time to train them, for everyone's happiness and safety.


After Application is approved, a non-refundable, but litter transferable
deposit of $200 for a puppy is required.
 

I will NOT sell 2 puppies at the same time to the same home/family.
Or sell a puppy into a family that already has a puppy under 1.5 yrs old.

(I believe every pup deserves an undivided attention to learn, then they can help with the next pup)

When contacting me, be persistant !
dont be offended if I dont get right back to you, call/email again, again & again.
As I put my dogs first, paperwork & emails get squeezed into the end of my days.

Radar x Reba 2019

18th  March 2019 (Week 1 - Mating)  REBA WEIGHS 65 lbs
Ovulation is considered day 0. Ovulation is when the female releases an egg from the ovaries, ready for fertilization following mating. The female will be receptive to the male a few days before ovulation. Fertilization of the egg can occur 2-3 days after ovulation, depending on how long the male's sperm takes to reach the egg.
25th March  2018 (Week 2)
The fertilized eggs make their way to the uterus, where they will eventually become embedded in the lining. You may notice some minor behavioral changes at this early stage.
1st April  2018 (Week 3)       REBA WEIGHS 66 lbs
By week 3, the embryos have implanted in the wall of the uterus. Development begins and the embryos become dependent on the mother for nutrition.
8th April  2019 (Week 4)
By day 28 it is possible for your vet to confirm pregnancy. The fetuses can be seen through ultrasound and also felt through palpation. The fetuses are now a couple of centimeters long and the spinal cord, eyes and other facial features begin to take shape.
15th April  2019 (Week 5)    REBA WEIGHS 68.2 lbs
Amniotic fluid will build to protect the pups from around day 32, so you will notice an increase in the bitch's size and weight. You may also notice an increase in her appetite and should start offering her more food as needed.
By Day 35 the embryos can now be considered fetuses as the organs begin to develop and their shape becomes more obvious. It is at this point the sexes of the fetuses are determined as their sex organs develop.

22nd April  2019 (Week 6)    REBA WEIGHS 70.3 lbs
The fetuses continue to develop. Their claws will develop by around day 40. By the end of week six, the coat will begin to develop with each pup's distinct markings.
You should consider setting up a comfortable whelping box in a quiet place, and encourage the bitch to being sleeping there.

29th April  2019 (Week 7)   REBA WEIGHS  74.2 lbs
The neonatal pups are now almost fully formed and begin to rapidly develop in size. The mother's appetite will be very large at this point. Preparations for the whelping box should now be completed.
6th May  2019(Week 8)    REBA WEIGHS 75.8 lbs
Day 50
and the skeletons will have developed; meaning the number of pups can now be determined by x-ray. The mother will likely be expressing milk at this point ready for her pups. The pups are now crowded in the uterus and birth could happen at any point! The female may start digging, a natural nesting behavior, in the whelping box.
13th May  2019 (Week 9 - Whelping)     REBA WEIGHS 82.4 lbs
The female is ready for whelping and will likely be quiet in preparation of labor. Rectal temperature can be taken a few times daily to help indicate when labor will begin. A decrease in temperature indicates that whelping will begin soon.   5/17/19 REBA WEIGHS 84.6 lbs
7 Puppies born 5/18/10  (7 hours of labor)

Day 63 marks the average length of gestation in the dog and is likely to be the day the pups are born.
