Welcome to Lane's House Of Old Fashion Large German Shepherd Dogs. I do not breed for the Conformation show ring or the German Schutzhund ring. I breed Old Fashion Large German Shepherds for family companions.Our dogs are big. Dogs exceeding 30" at the withers, and well over 100 pounds in weight. They are "straight backed", in reference to the excessive slope of some American show dogs and the roaching of some German show dogs.They are called Old Fashioned Large German Shepherds.
Urgent Alert: Home Invasion, Robbery, Burglary are on the rise.
WE CAN HELP KEEP YOUR FAMILY SAFE
In a free society your home should be the sanctuary for you and your family. Your home is the only environment where you have control over who can get close to you and your family. Protecting your home and family from criminal intrusion should be high on your list of priorities. The best guard dog is an alert watch dog. A dog who will bark loudly when people enter your house is by far the best defense against unwanted intruders. A large German Shepherd everyone has seen you walk around the neighborhood would make would be criminals think twice about your house.
I Only Want A Dog For Home Protection
This is the biggest mistake of them all. Do you want a dog as a loving member of the family, or do you want a dog just to keep intruders out? Dogs are so much more than a barking machine. Dogs come with health care costs, feeding costs, and time investments. If all you want is something to keep your home safe, please, put down that phone, forget about calling a breeder. Instead, please pick up the phone book and look for a home security place near you that sells burglar alarms. They work out to be much cheaper in the long run, less time consuming, and above all, won't get you sued when your poorly trained dog bites the meter reader.
Family Watchdogs vs. Guard Dogs
One of the common misconceptions among dog owners is that watchdog is simply another name for guard dog. In essence, a watch dog acts as an alert, barking to warn occupants of approaching strangers and warn strangers they are not yet welcomed here. Different breeds of dogs, including German Shepherds, fit this role.
A guard dog, on the other hand, possesses the physical capability to render a would-be assailant incapable of harming the dog's owner either through restraint or injury.
Old Fashion Large German Shepherds - This breed retains a calm demeanor but is able to act when situations call for firmness or assistance, i.e., a good seeing-eye dog. It also retains a detached attitude that allows it to resist being swayed by superficial attempts at befriending. The two most important things in owning a German Shepherd is temperament & training.
I am a small Kennel and Old Fashion Large German Shepherd dog breeder of sound OFA Certified Old Fashion Large German Shepherds located in Southern California. As one of just a few Old Fashion Large GSD breeders my main goal for my breeding program is to breed Old Fashion Large German Shepherds Dogs & puppies that are Intelligent, Noble, Dignified, Sensitive, Loyal. Sound in mind and body.
All German Shepherd Dogs are working dogs if you ask them to do a job and show them what you want them to do they will do it, and do it well.
Excellent temperament, Our breeding goal are Intelligent, Noble, Dignified, Sensitive, Loyal, Sound in mind and body Large German Shepherds that make Excellent companions and are Naturally protective and great family pets.
All my dogs are family pets. I like calm but energetic dogs with no hind end slope, straight top lines (backs), tight round feet, with large heads, heavy bones, and tall frames very good in obedience.
Yes my dogs are often large, but size should never be a factor over soundness. OFA certified hips are of great importance. The new style German Shepherd is dying much sooner then Shepherds from just 20 years ago. I am committed to keeping lines that average 12 to 14 years of longevity. The diet we feed our dogs consists of a good quailty dog food.
For longevity and good health I also feed raw meat at least one day a week. I recommend that you read Dr. Pitcairn's Complete Guide To Natural Health For Dogs and Cats by Dr. Pitcairn. Because of the variety and quality of dog food available we require that all Lane's House Of Shepherds dogs be kept on NuVet Plus Canine. This Nutritional Supplement is only available through breeder recommendation. The order line phone number is: 1-800-474-7044 Order Code 907534. You will be instructed concerning this when you take possession of your puppy. The health guarantee will be considered null and void if you do not keep your pet on this supplement.
I am committed to staying a very small dog breeder. Breeding Old Fashion Large Shepherds is a passion and commitment not a business for profit. I have Old Fashion Large German Shepherd puppies for sale from one litter or two litters a year. I share ideas and breedings goals with other breeders of Old Fashioned Large German Shepherds.
A well-bred German Shepherd is a remarkable dog, but a German Shepherd dog from a disreputable breeder, accidental breeding, or someone trying to recoup their initial investment, can be a nightmare. Without careful consideration of genetic issues, temperament, and physical characteristics, the resulting litter can be plagued with serious health and temperament problems. I do research on the family history of my German Shepherd dogs before they enter my breeding program. I also try and educate my buyers so that they are aware of the needs of the breed, as well as their own Old Fashioned Large German Shepherd.
