Our Dogs

We carefully select our breeding animals to uphold and enhance breed integrity by producing a solid working dog and stable home companions.  Only dogs with stable temperaments and the ability to work are bred.  Our dogs are neither shy nor aggressive.  They are alert, responsive, active, and healthy, yet possess a solid nerve and balanced drive.  Breeding this type of dog produces puppies that are worthy of the name German Shepherd.  Parents have had their hips/elbows x-rayed and free of dysplasia, are current on shots, and imports have a DNA profile.  These and other qualities make Conifer Canine a solid source among German Shepherd breeders.

Max von Stephanitz, “father” of the GSD

“The breeding of shepherd dogs is the breeding of working dogs; and this must always be the aim, or we shall cease to produce shepherd dogs.”

“Make sure my shepherd dog remains a working dog, for I have struggled all my life for that aim.”  He devoted 37 years of his life to “create” his “shepherd dog.”
