German Shepherd Breeding

At GoodHeart our aim is to breed a versatile, intelligent German Shepherd that can succeed in all disciplines. We breed a dog that is stable, agile, naturally protective and has energy but is also able to relax. We breed great family dogs and wonderful companions.

Our ideal dog is not just about good confirmation but about their good health, good temperament and trainability. In fact, health and temperament are our first consideration when choosing a dog for breeding, without these, confirmation is irrelevant.

All of our dogs come with registration papers for a pedigree that indicates their parents were excellent examples of the ideal German Shepherd Dog. We believe that we gain the best of both worlds by integrating both German and American bloodlines into our breeding program and have bred away from the extreme show lines towards the original straighter backed working dogs.

The best process for selecting quality breeding stock is to find the ideal bloodlines and choose the likeliest puppies and then work with them creating testing situations that best reveal the dog’s true nature and abilities. We are building on five generations of dogs that started over twenty years ago.

All dogs used for breeding are trained in obedience and agility to ensure they are both stable and intelligent and always, we are assessing temperaments. Some of our dogs have been trained in tracking and protection and as we work with them asking for higher energy outputs we are always looking to confirm their excellent health and conformation.

Our training sessions with Jackie have been amazing from day one! Jackie is highly sensitive to the nature of everyone in her classes – dogs and humans alike. Her lessons have given me the skills to communicate clearly with my Boston terrier, Dizzy, and confidence that, given patience and a little bit of repetition, he is capable of so much more than I’d imagined, even at nine months of age. It’s amazing to watch him holding a down stay, or using a new piece of agility equipment!

We got Rue from GoodHeart Kennel March 2008 because we liked the advise that we had received from Jackie. She was very thorough with her explanations and had extensive knowledge of dogs. She told us about her obedience classes and we wanted to sign up and have Rue take the classes. We knew that we had gotten a really good dog, but we also wanted to have a really good behaved dog. We started her puppy obedience class in May and have continued ever since. We and our dog have learned so much in such little time. Rue is heeling, sitting, goes down, knows up, through, under and is even learning agility. He loves these classes so much and he looks forward to going every Saturday. The look on his face when he accomplishes these activities is priceless. We thank you Jackie for your time and effort into helping us make Rue the best dog he can be and we look forward to continuing these lessons.

Just to let you know that Abbey is now six months and a joy to be around. She listens so well. We walk by joggers and put her down and get so many compliments and thank yous from them. She walks by other dogs without any problem and will visit with them without incidence. I cannot believe how quickly we both learned from you in just an hour a week. Thank you for all you taught us. Take care.

Just wanted to drop you a quick note of thanks. Your training class was fantastic. I was pretty much at my wits end with Krimmi when we started the class. Maybe it was because of his behaviour that I had a really hard time bonding with him, me who gets attached to every dog. Now he’s “my boy.” 8 weeks ago I would have never thought or believed that he would or could stay in a down stay beside 2 other dogs and not break that stay even when the other dogs were called. Is he perfect? No, he is still crazy and obnoxious at times lol, but we now have the tools to keep working on his obedience. I will highly recommend your training classes and Krimmi and I will be back for level 2 in the fall.
