Here at Austerlitz Shepherds we strive for excellence in all areas of our breeding program, and since all great dogs were once puppies, the method we employ in rearing our puppies is arguably as important as the work we put in planning each litter and the quality of the pedigree.

All puppies are home-raised, using Puppy Culture puppy raising and training protocols, with plenty of love, attention, and all the usual household noises and activity. Our puppy room is adjacent to our kitchen, office, and family room, so the puppies never want for interaction with us. Socialization is constant and training starts early!

If you are looking for a responsibly bred German Shepherd Dog from a legacy breeder we may be the breeder for you.
