"You become responsible for what you have tamed" - Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Our goals at Vom Waldenhaus German Shepherds centrally located in the beautiful Midwest Missouri Ozarks, is to improve the German Shepherd breed through proper genetic trait selectivity and the earliest possible handling and socialization. We spend hundreds of hours (along with our children) interacting, handling and observing each litter of German Shepherd puppies individually. We feel that proper early stimulation and interaction with each puppy helps foster high bonding with humans and creates companionship and respect, which logically eases resistance for later advanced training. Most kennels and self proclaimed German Shepherd breeders in today's make a "quick dollar" mentality, will breed almost any two randomly acquired German Shepherds just to produce puppies with little regard to selection of correct German Shepherd quality and disposition. In most cases the only socialization the puppies get are with each other and once a day when they are feed and cleaned up after.

For 30 years now, we have dedicated our lives to building a foundation of healthy, beautiful German Shepherds. Our litters are very consistent in the type of dog that we have selectively bred for, we have a ZERO compromise policy when it comes to health and temperament with our breeding stock. We breed for a sound minded, family disposition, a German Shepherd who is very loyal and highly bonded to their family, calm and good natured with small pets and children, yet alert and protective of their family without being high strung or needlessly aggressive. We spend countless hours with every litter of German Shepherd puppies born here so we can help to select the best match for your family.
As professional and experienced German Shepherd breeders, we pride ourselves on customer satisfaction, after you have looked through our 100+ page website, viewed pedigrees, letters of reference and our comprehensive health guarantee, if you like what you see, you can make a reservation. We will immediately put you on the list. When the puppies are 8 weeks old, if you live a great distance from our facility in central Missouri and can not come here to select your puppy, you will receive regularly updated pictures and streaming video clip of the puppies (designated with different color ribbons) of the type you are looking for to select from, with our best recommendations, however, the final choice is always YOURS.

We do not believe that anyone should ever buy a puppy, without seeing at least a video. We want you to feel comfortable that you are getting exactly what you are paying for. Buying a puppy should be fun and stress free, from people you feel comfortable with, not filled with worry or frustration that you may not be getting what you are expecting when shipping day arrives. Video provides absolute proof that "what we say we have, we can prove we have" and that you are going to get an excellent German Shepherd puppy from us. You will not have a disappointing surprise when you open up the airline crate. You are going to get the puppy you selected from our video.
We let our puppies leave when they are 10 weeks old and crate trained with a complete vaccination record and microchipped, signed guarantee and AKC papers. They are SHIPPED FREE of any charge including a new airline approved airline crate, complete air fare and associated taxes, comprehensive flight insurance coverage, Veterinarian FAA required health certificate and check-up, all airline reservations and connections set- up by us and free delivery to the departing airport - free shipping to any major airport anywhere within North America. The only really big responsibility you have is to pick-up your puppy at the airport and start enjoying the best present you ever got for yourself and your family.

We successfully and consistently produce large boned, beautiful black and red German Shepherd puppies that have exceptional temperaments. We breed only select German Shepherd dogs from Imported German bloodlines, which we have been breeding and working with for many, many generations, we know our bloodlines!! We are not breeding for the fads in the show ring, importing over the new hot bloodline and just hoping that it all works out, the lines we are working with, we have worked with for nearly 30 years, they are sound in health and temperament and while there are always potential flukes in any breedings, we have greatly reduced the chances of surprises because we have such a long history with these German Shepherd bloodlines and planning our breedings.
We have been very strict about health from day one, all of our breeding stock have been x-rayed to be free of hip and elbow dysplasia. Our German import blood lines are clean and free of the problems that most other breeders are plagued with. All of our breeding stock has been screened for the serious genetic trait that causes DM (Degenerative myelopathy) a horrible crippling disease that is very prevalent in the German Shepherd Breed.
We research our breeding imports background extensively, but more unique than anything else, as long time experienced, German Shepherd breeders, over the last 3 decades, we have family raised complete litters to maturity at our facility so that we could evaluate each puppy at every stage in development, this has helped us to know exactly what we are producing and sending out into your family's home.
We consistently produce sound, high bonding companions with super intelligence and strong training drives. Each German Shepherd puppy we produce has the essential elements and strong bonding instincts to make them sound personal and loving family companions. Each litter produces some king-size pups and maximum for the standard size pups, never anything less in size or stature. We do not and would not breed specifically for over sized German Shepherd Dogs, but would not sacrifice the excellent temperament we produce, because a few puppies in every litter happen to be slightly larger than the standard. Good breeding is always an educated and well informed balancing act.

As strictly German Shepherd Breeders, we have spent the last 30 years gathering as much analytical data as possible and our research of these selective breeding's has given us the tools to match up the outstanding traits of each individual to compliment the outstanding traits of each of our breeding pairs. For us proper breeding is more like an art form and a purposeful pursuit for the love of the breed.
