Frequently Asked Questions

  • How much are your puppies?
    Our last litter was $3000.00 CDN plus shipping (and cost of a crate) if applicable.
  • What are your hours of operation?
    We are never open to the public. We do not have a 'facility' or kennel building, it's just our home.
  • Can i get two?
    We will not sell two puppies together for too many reason to list!
  • Are your puppies cheaper if i don't want registration papers?
    No, we will not sell a dog without Canadian Kennel Club registration papers. All the puppies we sell are registered purebred German Shepherd dogs.
  • Will your dogs do well at the dog park or at a dog daycare?
    The breed in general is not suited for dog parks or doggie daycares. We are not interested in selling to homes that want to take our dogs to a dog park because we feel it will lead to problems down the road. Our dogs are high drive working dogs that do not need to play with dogs outside their own pack. If this is something you really want to do with your dog we suggest you look at a different breed (but we are sure you can find a GSD breeder who has less than stellar dogs and doesn't care what you do with your puppy!)
  • Where are you located?
    We are located in Earltown, Nova Scotia, Canada.
  • How do your deposits work and are they refundable?
    We only take deposits once the litter is on the ground. We require a $750 deposit to hold a puppy once you are approved. Yes, our deposits are 100% refundable if either party changes their mind. ‍
  • Do you have a waiting list?
    Because we will not take deposits until a litter is on the ground, we do not have a waiting list. We do have people that are keeping themselves updated on our breeding plans and are waiting for our next litter. If you would like to know what our plans are, we suggest that you follow our Facebook Page or reach out contact section. ‍
  • Do you breed rare colours, whites or long coated dogs?
    There is no such thing as rare colour in the GSD breed. Colours like blue, liver, panda, isabella and white are all faults and we do not purposely breed faults. Our dogs do carry the long coat gene so long coats appear occasionally in our litters.
  • Can I take a puppy home on a trial basis?
    Absolutely....NOT. If you aren't sure you are ready for a puppy or for this breed of dog - you probably aren't. ‍
  • What if I want a specific colour?
    We know in advance what colours will be produced in a litter before it is born. You may request a preference, but if the best suited dog for you is not the colour you want, we will not substitute the colour you want over the dog you should have. We suggest that colour not be such a high priority on your list.
  • Do you charge more for....?
    We charge the same amount for every puppy in a litter. What we will charge more for is keeping a puppy beyond the first 8 weeks or shipping / delivery. ‍
  • Will you ship a puppy?
    Yes we will ship and / or deliver a puppy. ‍
  • Can I breed the dog I buy from you?
    All our puppies are sold on CKC non-breeding agreements. We will be more than happy to talk about lifting the non-breeding aggreement if your interested in breeding under strict restrictions.
  • What if someday I can't take care of my dog?
    We will. For the life of the dog you purchase from us. We will help you or take back any dog we produce and find it a suitable home.
  • Where are your puppies raised?
    Where are your puppies raised? Our litters are born and raised in our home.
  • Do your dogs get along with other dogs?
    Our dogs are not dog aggressive but we do not go our of our way to introduce or interact with dogs outside our pack as it is not important to us. If you are looking for a dog that will have to get along with strange dogs (ie dog parks) - the GSD is not the breed for you.
  • Are your dogs 'King Shepherds'?
    No. Our dogs are registered purebred German Shepherd Dogs. King Shepherd is not a recognized breed.
  • Can I visit your kennel?
    Of course - but we don't set up visits until we have something to sell. So unless we have a breeding in process, we don't have people come out and meet our dogs. We have one breeding female at the moment so we only have one litter per year. We have nothing to hide - but we are not a commercial operation. It's just our home and our pets...
  • Are your dogs from Champion World Class Bloodlines?
    "Champion World Class Bloodlines" are great buzzword and marketing gimmicks - champion of what? Our dogs pedigrees are full of titled and health tested generations.
  • How big will your puppies get?
    No crystal ball here - your dog will be as big / small as it gets. We do not breed outside the SV standards; Male dogs: Height at the withers 60 cm to 65 cm Weight 30 kg to 40 kg (66-88lbs) Female dogs: Height at the withers 55 cm to 60 cm Weight 22 kg to 32 kg (48.5-70.5lbs)
  • Will your dogs make good therapy dogs?
    We breed GSD that would make great therapy dogs...under proper training under correct educated supervision. ‍
  • Do you sell puppies on co-owns or to guardian homes?
    No. There is no reason for us to partially own the dog we sell to you. We also do not farm our dogs out and then bring them back to breed and profit from that type of system.
