The masters of disguise. I would never buy a pup off the internet unless it was someone I knew. I HAVE to go to the kennel to check it out for myself. I dont buy from anyone that would have more than 4 dogs. Just my opinion.

They do breed a lot of litters - it's definitely a business for them.

But they are very much in the world of dog sports too. This is not a puppy mill in that regard - they prove their stock by putting schutzhund titles on all the dogs. Most of their breeding stock is at least a Sch2, and many are Sch3. In addition, most of them are koerclassed (Kkl) and some indicate hips have been checked ("a" normal).

I actually have more respect for people breeding proven dogs like this than those who just get an AKC championship on their dog and then breed thinking they have "quality".

But yes, way too many litters. I bet they sell most of their dogs to schutzhund people who are looking for a working dog out of German lines.

Hi,

I think that 19 dogs and several litters is alot to look after.. But they all certainly look healthy and cared for.

They don't use a bitch several times over. They have breeding pairs which is sensible. It would be different if they had four bitches and were constantly breeding them.

They are obviously lisenced breeders because if you have more than two breeding bitches in your breeding programme then you MUST apply for a lisence before breeding.
