Von der Treu German Shepherds is owned and operated by Steven Jackson. It is a very small hobby kennel that only does rare breedings or importing. Steven is not new to the breed. He is a multiple generation German Shepherd Dog owner. He was raised with the breed, his father was raised with the breed as well as his grandparents. It may have even began before then. Steven has been around German Shepherds his entire life and has always owned at least one. Along with owning them he also has been training German Shepherds professionally since 2006. Due to his extended experience with the breed from owning the breed and helping so many families with their German Shepherds over the years he receives a higher number of inquiries for shepherds to be trained. He also participates in Schutzhund, or now known as IGP, training with his dogs. He has an extended amount of experience training, raising and caring for the breed. 

Steven believes the German Shepherd Dog should be a versatile breed who is highly trainable, good nerved, confident, loyal, balanced and stable enough to be a great family companion. The German Shepherd is one of, if not THE, most versatile breed of dog in the world. A breed who can do protection work, detection work, searching/tracking, herding, alerts, guide the blind and many other forms of work while also keeping the ability to be a safe and loyal family pet. It is a driven breed who likes to work, be active and being involved with their family/handler. 

Von Der Treu German Shepherd's breeding dogs are all Hip and Elbow xrayed along with Degenerative Myelopathy (DM) tested. Each puppy comes with a 26 month hip and elbow guarantee (please inquire for details on this) and will take back any dog purchased from them at any time for any reason. Puppies are sold with AKC papers, microchips, de-wormings and age appropriate vaccinations. Puppies are placed in homes fit with the proper experience and lifestyle. Von der Treu reserves the right to decline the sale of any dog or puppy at any time for any reason. We strive to place puppies in permanent homes where they can thrive and reach maximum potential.
