Our world-class German Shepherds are meticulously selected from the top European pedigrees ensuring the best possible temperament and physical condition.
Initial in-home training is provided with each dog we place.
We hand-select dogs descending from a long line of animals who have passed the rigorous German Korklasse regimen. The German approach tests a dog’s ability to fight an aggressor while maintaining a perfect disposition for living in a family environment.
These majestic companions are raised in families, well socialized, extensively trained and meet the highest breed standard (healthy hips, elbows, etc.). They are exposed to real world situations aimed at challenging their courage and emotional stability before the dog is deemed suitable for breeding.
Why Buy a European Import German Shepherd?
A robust community for sport dog training is found throughout Europe, and German Shepherd owners start their dogs in this program at a young age. They enjoy dog training so much that a typical German Shepherd owner gets a new puppy every 6 to 9 months. Although it might be hard for Americans to understand, these dog enthusiasts usually sell their fully trained dogs and continue the process of training more pups. This often becomes a life-long avocation.
When German Shepherd Watchdogs travels to Europe to inspect new prospects, we only consider those dogs that have truly excelled in all aspects of this intense and exhaustive “farm” system. Once back in the U.S., we continue to train these dogs ourselves and make sure they are accustomed to every conceivable social situation. When this entire process is complete, we can confidently hand over your new dog knowing that this majestic companion will quickly become an indispensable and loved member of your family.
The following factors contribute to the superb quality of our dogs:
Our dogs come from a long line of unique animals that have demonstrated complete mastery of tracking, obedience and protection work.
These magnificent creatures possess superior intelligence, working ability and physical prowess. They are courageous and demonstrate an unwavering commitment to their masters’ safety. Finally, our dogs are poised, self confident, and good-natured.
Our dogs must be free of any hip problems, as determined by a board certified radiologist, and must meet exacting breed standards, far in excess of anything the American Kennel Club (AKC) would require.
In the United States, almost any two dogs can be bred, and have their puppies receive “papers.” Not so in Europe. The German Shepherd Breed Warden must certify that the dog is of impeccable physical and emotional stability before the dog is deemed suitable for breeding.

“Now having Valko, I feel that we underpaid for this great dog. Within the first week of owning Valko, we concluded that we would not take any amount of money for him...Purchasing a dog from German Shepherd Watchdogs has been a great experience.”
