OUR GOALS FOR BREEDING
- Balanced Temperament
- Healthy German Shepherds
- Bred to follow German Shepherd Standards in conformation and temperament.
**Breeding only takes places once the selected dogs are physically sound in body and mind and are cleared for breeding by a licensed veterinarian. All of our breeding bitches/dogs will have been x-rayed (pre-limbed at the least) and OFA’ed for their hips and elbows to ensure that there is no hip/elbow dysplasia present. WE WILL ONLY BREED IF there is a demand for puppies or expanding our breeding program**
Shipping Available across Canada and the United States
All of our puppies are temperament tested using VOLHARD’S PUPPY APTITUDE TESTING
Puppy questionnaires can be found under FORMS and must be filled out to be considered for placement.
Litter Announcement Coming Soon!

EXCEPTIONAL quality pups are worth the wait!
Elhart German Shepherd puppies are raised in a family environment with adults, kids, cats, and dogs. This gives our puppies unlimited levels of social stimulation and interaction for development! By 7 weeks of age, we also introduce crate, leash, and manners training, car rides, noises, strange objects, etc. We feel that these puppies deserve the best care and training that we can provide them in their first 8 weeks so they can easily fit in with their new families.
If you have never owned a German Shepherd, please take a minute to read over the link:
Our puppies stay at Elhart until they are at least 8 weeks of age. If you are interested in one of our litters, please take a moment to fill out a Puppy Questionnaire so we can determine which puppy would be best suited for you!
$200.00 non-refundable deposit to reserve your puppy.
$1,500.00 – $1,800.00 for limited registration puppies (spay/neuter required)
$2,500.00 -$3,500 for unlimited registration to CKC or AKC registered breeders upon approval.
All of our puppies are temperament tested using the Volhard’s Puppy Aptitude Testing. This testing provides us with insight on how puppy thinks, interacts, plays, and reacts to noises, objects, strangers, etc. Once we have puppy questionnaires filled out by the families, then we can determine the best puppy for your needs, energy level, etc.
We reserve puppies for families but we do wait until puppies are between 6 – 7 weeks of age before deciding which family is best suited for each puppy! We welcome families to come by for a visit after puppies have reached six weeks of age by appointment only.
For the safety of our pups, we do ask that you do not visit our kennel after visiting another kennel as many illnesses/diseases can be transferred.
I encourage all families to stay in touch as their puppy matures and am more than willing to help with any concerns or questions that may come up along the way. I also love (an expect) pictures too!
**We offer boarding for all of our Elhart German Shepherd puppies if you are planning a trip or are away on business. (first come first serve basis).**

ITEMS TO MAKE READY BEFORE PUPPY COMES HOME.–**Owning a dog is a long-term commitment. Please consider the purchase of a German Shepherd puppy knowing that he/she will be relying on you to care for them all of their lives. **
KENNEL – large enough to eventually accommodate puppy when full-grown.
BLANKET – **Do not use braided or woven rugs as puppy might chew and swallow threads. This causes intestinal blockage and sometimes cause death. ** Old towels are the best choice by experience as they are easy to wash. (Down filled comforters and plush dog beds are not recommended! They will chew them up!)
DISHES – water and food – stainless is best to prevent chewing
PUPPY FOOD – starter food comes with puppy and you can slowly blend if your brand is different. **We recommend a high quality food for at least the first year of life to give puppy the proper nutrients for development.**
LEASH/COLLAR – Adjustable because he/she is going to grow quickly!
PET SAFE TOYS – Insure you have a few chewing toys and play toys to help with the teething! Plush toys are generally not a safe choice for this breed!
BABY GATE – If there are areas in your home that are not safe for puppy
HOME INSPECTION – Take a few minutes to check for cords, valuables, etc. that might be a potential hazard or make you very upset if puppy decides to explore! Check fences for weak boards and small gaps where puppy could get out. Inspect latches on gates so they close properly, etc.
