My name is Tracey Oakes, I am a mother of 4 and a grandmother of 16 beautiful grandchildren. As a family we've had shepherds all our lives and always had livestock and property our dogs run and protect. I've recently decided to take my free time as a grandma and combine it with my passion for the German Shepherd and have created a very small breeding program. I've hand raised, and trained all three of our shepherds. I know each of them like they are my own children. I dedicate a lot of my time to my animals and their puppies. My dogs are loved and cared for and I have a personal relationship with each of our sweet pups. I dedicate time to socializing and training them before they go to their new homes so they are set up for success. I'm not a kennel, my animals are socialized, loved, and kept in a meticulously clean environment.
We litter-box train our puppies much like cats, with pine pellet litter. We begin litter box training between 3-4 weeks of age. This helps play on natural instincts to keep their play and sleep area clean. By 5-8 weeks of age puppies are well trained and rarely have accidents. Once pups are big enough, we doggie door train, teaching them to go outside to eliminate. This helps immensely with the transition to house breaking and crate training when they go to their new homes. Our puppies come to their new homes with our 1 year health guarantee against genetic defects and hip dysplasia, examination and first booster shot administration by our vet, come with our puppy pack, and life time support. New families will be provided with shot and worming record, microchip, chip registration and a folder full of info regarding your puppy, training, and parents AKC pedigrees.
