At Hollow Hills/ vom hohlen Huegel German Shepherd Dogs we offer German bloodlines bred for mental and physical soundness, health, longevity, character, intelligence, conformation, temperament, and versatility of purpose. In short, the perfect blend of beauty and brains. With world class pedigrees, our puppies, young adults, and occasional trained adults are available only to discriminating homes. If you are ready for a German Shepherd Dog of the highest caliber, for Schutzhund, personal protection, Search & Rescue, competitive show or obedience/agility/performance, or just a loving family companion, I take pride in matching you with the appropriate Hollow Hills German Shepherd Dog! At Hollow Hills/vom hohlen Huegel I've been breeding, training, and showing German Shepherds for nearly thirty years. The dogs have accumulated a list of accomplishments that warranted Hollow Hills recognition as an AKC "Breeder of Merit." Performance, temperament, soundness, health and longevity have always been of higher priority than show wins in our breeding program. For some years now I have dealt almost exclusively bloodlines from the foremost West German kennels, in order to combine the best possible genetics to ensure excellence for each succeeding generation of our German Shepherds. Hollow Hills' breeding program is designed for the betterment of the breed. The kennel is small and litters are carefully planned. All pups are born in the house, graduating to large grassy paddocks for romping and roughhousing. They have socialization with our Rat terriers, Pomeranian, and poodle, and are exposed to our horses, chickens, and children when I can "borrow" them. German Shepherds are an intelligent, sensitive, people-oriented breed that do not reach full potential without proper socialization and early mental stimulation. Rest assured that vom hohlen Huegel puppies are provided with the kind of start in life that provides a sound foundation for reaching their full potential as competitors or companions. Please visit my website to see our dogs, review their pedigrees, and read the kennel history.
German Shepherds are quality dogs selectively bred for the discriminating buyer. They are from Working American and Import European bloodlines. All dogs are AKC registered and come with papers. Our dogs are my companions and live in the house. My priority in breeding dogs is their health and temperament. They make great companion dogs or performance/working dogs. Puppies come with a written health & hip guarantee. Puppies have their vaccinations and dewormings up to date. Health tests that I do on breeding stock are von Willebrands (vWD), eye CERF , OFA hips, elbows, cardiac, patella, DM. MDR1 and Temperament tests. They have degrees or certifications in obedience, herding, agility, temperament tests, schutzhund, search & rescue, and police work, as well as work as Therapy and Service dogs. Many of them have titles and work in multiple areas which shows their versatility, adaptability, and ease of learning. They have loyal temperaments with natural protective instincts and have a strong willingness to be trained. They have heavy bone with well balanced bodies. Male are 90-130 lbs. and females are 70-100 lbs. Our puppies are raised in our home and handled from day 1 by immediate family. At 4 weeks old they start to be handled by friends, strangers to them. They are exposed to many noises such as TV, radio, vacuum, washed, dryer, lawn mower or snow blower, cars, fans and the occasional dropped pan, etc. They are experience with many different surfaces such as cement, carpet, vinyl, gravel, grass, paper, rubber and water in a baby pool. They are exposed to the different outdoor elements for the time of year. So the first time they see and feel rain or snow or wind is not when you are trying to housebreak them. All dogs drink filtered water, Our personal dogs eat a raw diet and the puppies are allowed to get some too. The puppies are paper trained and started with outside potty training by the time they leave here. We practice a minimal use vaccine protocol.
