Wherever you live, when you search our network there’s a great chance that you will find German Shepherd breeders nearby.

They can then arrange transport for your puppy, and you can meet your new furry friend at your nearest major airport.
Yes, purebred dogs are those that have been bred from a single breed to maintain very specific standards. Mixed breed dogs, on the other hand, have more than one breed in their parentage. They are both wonderful types of dogs, and it’s completely up to you which type you would prefer to get.
Of course! Reputable shelters can be a great option, but that doesn’t mean that they are for everyone. If you want something very specific when you look for a new puppy, and you want a full health and behavioral history of your dog, the German Shepherd breeders in our network may be a better option. But it’s up to you!
One of the things people love about German Shepherds is their lovely thick coats. However, those gorgeous coats won’t look after themselves, so regular grooming is necessary. It’s not hard, however, and a good brush every few days is usually enough. It’s also a great opportunity to bond with your dog.
All of the German Shepherd breeders and businesses in our network provide complete health checks for all of their puppies. That means you can get your new German Shepherd puppy with complete peace of mind. However, you should always take your new pup to the vet for a checkup when it arrives.
After you have found a puppy from a German Shepherd breeder in our network, you should know that these are active dogs and they need quite a bit of exercise. They need at least two hours a day, and that usually means a daily walk or two as well as some playtime back home. It’s important they get enough exercise to keep them happy and healthy.
German Shepherds tend to get along great with kids. They love their families and they will love playing with any kids in your household. They should always be socialized properly from a young age, and make sure you supervise young children carefully. But German Shepherds are known for being fantastic family dogs.
If you live in a small home, you can still get a puppy from one of the German Shepherd breeders in our network. While they are active dogs and need lots of exercise, they are quite happy in small homes as long as they get lots of love and attention. As long as you make sure they get enough exercise, your dog will be happy anywhere.
Training German Shepherds is usually quite easy. They are smart dogs, after all, so they tend to pick up new commands quickly. Start training your puppy from a young age, and have fun! They will be quick to learn, and your dog will love pleasing you too, so that soon you will have a loyal and obedient companion.
The German Shepherd breeders and companies in our network meet incredibly high breeding standards. They are not focused on providing the cheapest puppies, and they provide a boutique experience, puppy transportation, and exceptional standards. If you want to get a new puppy with complete peace of mind, start your search here today.
