NotenHaus kennels focuses on German shepherds, but will occasionally have border collies and beaucerons available.
I specialize in dilute colored German shepherds, such as liver, blue, and fawn. Health and temperament ALWAYS come before color, however.
I breed working lines of all breeds I produce.
Females will not be bred more than four times. Dogs will only be bred once a title is achieved. My dogs are bred to work, so they will receive working titles, whether it's agility, IPO, flyball, herding, or dock diving at some point early in their lives.
I prefer to breed my dogs to produce purebreds, but if you wish to breed to one of my dogs to make mixes, there must be a purpose for it. For example, better working dogs, fast flyball/agility dogs, etc. I will not breed a large male to a small female - the dam must be larger than the male for a mixed breed to minimize problems.
I would prefer to see at least one working title with a dog before breeding. I will breed to a dog with only a conformation title, but the dog MUST have at least ONE title.
To request a breeding, send me a note.
I reserve first pick on all litters, then the guest can have second pick. I will draw the pups and decide how many there will be. I will take into consideration any color/gender preferences of the guest to ensure they get the puppy they want.
I will not come up with markings that do not exist in the breed. The colors I produce all occur in the breed in reality.
There is only ONE way for me to produce a custom puppy for you. I will ONLY have custom puppies if the puppy is paid for in advance, otherwise puppies are COMPLETELY random, based on the parents' genes. (This is why I have what the parents carry for on their pages!)
I will NOT give a puppy unrealistic markings or colors that the parents could not produce. If you have any questions, please send me a note and ask.
