Southernwind's History and Policies
Back in the 70”s we started showing and Training dogs professionally, as a result, I became an FCI All Breed Judge and TT (Temperament Test) Judge with Breed Specialist in German Shepherds, Belgian Malinois and Labrador Retrievers this is how we came into contact with some of the greatest German Shepherd breeders of the time, this experience propelled our breeding program to the level it is today, Top Breed Standards.
THE GREATNESS OF THE GERMAN SHEPHERD is not just its beauty, but the fact that they can excel in Obedience, Agility, Protection Work, in Service and Emotional Support; as well as, in Sports like Schutzhund (now IPO). At the same time, they can be the most Special Companion any family would cherish for a lifetime! .. What's not to love?
That is why we made the decision that would transform not only our lives but the lives of the families who provide forever homes to our puppies. We decided to create a breeding program that would focus on dogs that could achieve successfully a variety of tasks. Our dogs have outstanding characteristics, Not only their bloodlines are based on World known VA Selected dogs in the World's most important German Shepherd Competitions (Sieger Shows) but also possess outstanding health, beauty, and temperament..! We have also incorporated into our program: The Development of SERVICE DOGS, in which our dogs have proven to be highly successful..!
Every puppy that leaves our premises has been subjected to our specially designed puppy desensitizing routine which was uniquely created by Southernwind. Based on our experience, in my many years of training horses for the Mounted Police, we used Ultra Tactical Special Sensory Work on them; and now we utilize it in our breeding practices for German Shepherds today. This yields the finest results; hence, our *****5 star Google and Social Media ratings!!
Southernwind Dogs are highly recognized for their Inherited Intelligence, Temperament, and Self-confidence. This is because of our breeding practices, and our attention to detail most breeders don't know about.
We selectively breed for Dogs that can excel in lots of great Performances, Dogs with great assertiveness who are outstanding as prospects for Personal Protection, Police Work, Sport (IPO-Ring Sport) Service Dogs and of course, a great family dog companion. Our history for these specialized subjects has been recognized over the years, with many repeat customers and programs that desire our dogs, for Therapy and service animals. We are truly humbled by all the feedback and will continue to provide dependable breeding.
Every time I receive a picture, a message, or a letter from one of our Southernwind family members, it has motivated me, even more, to continually fulfill our promises and continue growing as a breeder.
We are a family and we have a complete network of professionals who help with all sorts of situations or questions that might arise during the lifetime of the Southernwind Dog.
We also offer Puppy Starting Packages Programs which includes basic motivational obedience and training and also training for Older dogs in Obedience and Protection Work. You may call us and make arrangements to meet with our team of support Trainers
