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 raised full time in our home by our experienced team of professional dog trainers, and experienced breeders. You can follow our day to day puppy raising from our Facebook Page, by signing up for our Newsletter, or by supporting us on Patreon. To ensure our puppies have a smooth transition to your home, and have the best temperament, training, and socialization possible during their weeks with us we invest our time and expertise in the following puppy raising protocols.

1. We use the evidence based, highly successful Puppy Culture puppy raising and training protocols.
2. We use our own popular Poop School cleanliness training to ensure your puppy learns the skills needed to be easy to house train. Every family also gets an enrollment in our House Training Basics course.
3. We use our own Crate School crate conditioning techniques to ensure your puppy learns that crates are great places to rest, safe to be in, and some basic age appropriate crate skills. Included with your puppy is enrollment in our Confident Crating course for new puppy owners.

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