Breeder Info: East Texas German Shepherds

Breed(s): German Shepherd Dog

We are a small breeder of AKC German Shepherds in East Texas, so we have a small breeder mentality, not a puppy mill mentality. What does that mean for you? You get more for your dollar, a healthier dog, and a puppy from someone that actually cares about the future of the puppy. Because we truly want adding a new puppy to be a pleasant experience for you and your family - one that is funfilled, joyful and long-lasting, not frustrating and/or heartbreaking, we take some extra steps to ensure that your puppy is healthy, and accustomed to routine. For this reason, we go beyond the typical breeders and provide all of our puppies with more than just the typical first vaccination and worming that most breeders offer. The vaccination for most of the puppy-hood diseases require a series of three inocculations against the viruses, much like the DTAP for our children. We provide the first two in the series to protect against the following diseases: Parvovirus Distemper Leptospirosis Canine Adenovirus (CAV II - Infectious Hepatitis) Coronavirus Parainfluenza Bordatello (Kennel Cough)" using a nasal-applied vaccination We leave the third set of shots and the rabies vaccination for your first checkup at your veterinarian's office unless the puppy is beyond their 4th month of age in which case we provide the rabies shot and health check with our local chapter of the SPCA.. As owners of German Shepherds ourselves we know that they are very intelligent and if they want to find a way out of the yard, they usually can, so to help mitigate the possibility that your pet gets lost, picked up by Animal Control and adopted out to a new family, or taken in by someone with a big heart simply because they weren't able to locate or contact you about your dog. We have micro-chipped each of the puppies. Any Vet, pound, or animal shelter will be able to scan the chip, find the necessary information to contact you and reunite you with your dog. Your vet will also be able to provide a complete profile of the medical history of your dog. One other huge step that we take is to get your puppy in the routine of going to the bathroom outside, so we estimate that potty-training your puppy is about 99% complete. I don't know what price you would put on this, but we feel it's PRICELESS. We can tell you from personal experience that tearing up all of the carpet in house and having to redo the floors is an expensive, time-consuming and unpleasant experience that I wouldn't want to set up anyone to have to go through. We've had to do it once long before we had our shepherds and it's no fun to say the least. YOU will STILL have to work with them for them to be "house-trained" (we crate train). You'll need to be consciously aware of the signs that your puppy exhibits to let you know they need to use the bathroom; you'll need to make sure they can get out to do their business a few times a day; you'll need to praise them when they are using the bathroom where they should. It's completely up to you, but we highly recommend incorporating the crate into the process. This gives you and your puppy a security blanket. For them, it's a safe-haven and a place they can get that warm and fuzzy feeling of comfort. For you it's a place that limits the risk of them having accidents or "intentions" in areas of the house outside the crate and also a place to allow them to get their nervousness under control especially when you have company and they're first learning that they don't have to protect the family against the company. They will be acclimated to the crate, as mentioned above, they will be crate trained by us. While potty-training the puppies we get ample opportunity to help them understand some of the English commands, they've each heard "no" (or some form of that), "stop", "here", "not there" (pottying), "come", "sit", "down", "stay" (sitting, standing, and lying down), "wait", "leave it", "drop it", "fetch", "get it" (to release them from leave it"), "heal", and the names that we've affectionately have given enough to understand what they mean and when we're talking to them. We use lots of treats to reward on the positive, and ease the difficulty of any specific task by taking partial success as success. Please be aware that the German Shepherd is a protector breed. They were bred to provide protection to those that are a part of their PACK, which includes you and your family. Don't set them up for failure. Socialize them and they will be accepting of your cues of who is friend and who is foe. Isolate them and they won't gain that understanding without your help. Introduce them to company securely and everyone will be the happier for it. Also keep in mind that dogs in general are pack animals and either they will be the leader of the pack or you will be the leader of the pack. Right off you need to take control as the "alpha" in the pack, and when they try buck up to that, they should be reminded who is alpha and who is sub, and some times assertively, not abusively.
