Puppy Papers

Here at Peters’ Elite Shepherds, there is much planning and research done with each breeding, as well as proper prenatal care for the expectant mothers in anticipation of the birth of healthy, beautiful puppies. Our puppies are family raised with lots of TLC. They are handled from the minute they are born until they leave us, and are hugged, kissed and fussed over daily. Being quite pleased with themselves and their babies, the mothers are very accepting of all the attention.

As they grow, the puppies are exposed to many different sounds and noises around the house and kennel, such as radios, slamming doors, cars, etc. Our adult dogs also interact and play with the puppies, making the birth of each litter a family affair. This prepares the puppies for new surrounding when they leave us to go to their new homes.

We take extreme care in socializing our puppies with many visitors, neighbors and family members anxious to play with the puppies. After all, who does not love kisses, cuddles and puppy breathe! This human contact is invaluable in the development of good temperament, disposition and developing an overall sound dog.

Puppies are sold with a health and hip guarantee, as we stand behind each puppy that leaves our home. Our dogs are x-rayed and certified by the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals or have received the German “a” stamp (German hip certification). The puppies are vet checked and sent home with a health record of first shots and de- worming.

New owners also receive a booklet containing a picture of the sire and dam, a copy of their pedigree, feeding instructions, general care tips, training tips and AKC registration papers. We are forever available for questions, concerns and any help we can provide our extended families. And we love getting pictures and updates!
