If you are reading this, you are mostly likely aware what responsibilities
come with owning a dog. It is a daily committment for the the lifetime of
a dog to train, exercise and raise it properly. Well behaved dogs are
always the result of the hard work of the owner.
As well as the initial purchase price of the dog, you should consider
ongoing expenses such as vaccinations, worming, heartworm, desexing,
council registration, hip/elbow x-rays at 12-18 months old, grooming,
quality food, kennels, toys as well as things such as a crate, bedding,
leads, collars etc. There is also a significant time committment required for
socialisation, exercise and training.
We only select the very best owners for our pups. The breed is a working
dog and a dog without a purpose or correct pack leadership, can get
bored or destructive or develop behavioural issues. Our puppy buyers
must be knowledgeable about responsible pet ownership.
Please read our Key Points for Raising a Well-adjusted Puppy article and the
many other articles featured on our Articles & Info page.

We are always available to answer any questions you may have, including temperament, health, your puppy’s behaviour and training etc. There is no question too silly, no question too difficult to answer!
We do not consider ourselves ‘experts’, but we know some great trainers and behaviourists here in Melbourne who we highly recommend for your regular training routine, as well as behavioural concerns.
We are always there for our puppy owners whenever they need advice or help for the entire life of the dog. Please read some of kind comments made by people who have bought puppies from us under our Testimonials page.
We keep in regular contact with all our puppy buyers, most of which end up becoming close friends. Many of our puppy buyers who have met at our social events have become close friends with each other too. It’s heart-warming to see friendly and like-minded people coming together and enjoying each other’s company, whilst enjoying their dogs.
We endeavour to help you understand more about canine psychology and behaviour, which makes it much easier to train your puppy. This results in a mutually respectful and truly heartfelt companionship between dog and handler. We absolutely love organising social days and training days for our puppy owners in parks, reserves and beaches and always include them in our close-knit community of happy and friendly dog owners.
We live 5 minutes from the beach and are also surrounded by beautiful parks and gardens. Our dogs go everywhere with us, even up to the local cafe for breakfast where we sit and relax and they are perfectly behaved. They are great around our pet rabbits too. They sleep inside on luxury pet beds (shhhh, but they are also allowed up on our bed for cuddles). They are trained regularly and know a vast number of tricks. This is the kind of life we want for our puppies too.
We are very committed to the breed and take our responsibility to it very seriously. We have worked extensively over the past 18 years in developing our breeding program and have spent countless hours pouring over pedigrees, health and genetics of dogs from all over the world. We know our own bloodlines extremely well. We track the health in the blood lines we use, so we breed with the knowledge in what we are producing and have the ability to produce. The dogs in our breeding program are exclusive to us, except in a few circumstances where we have sold puppies to top breeders overseas or worked in a close and trusting partnerships where other breeders have used our stud dogs. We aim to produce the very best quality White Shepherds possible, using our excellent foundation lines and the best bloodlines from around the world.
We never breed litters for the sake of creating more puppies. Each dog we breed with is genetically assessed in regard to their health, as well as the health of their ancestors and progeny. Conformation and temperament are also taken into consideration and we create puppies with the purpose of them being even better than their parents. We believe if you are going to create a living being, it should be done properly and with a genuine concern for breed improvement and producing sound and healthy dogs.
How We Raise Our Litters
We not only provide the right genetics, but provide the right environment enables them to develop to their highest potential.
We raise puppies indoors for about 4 weeks, before transferring them outdoors where they can play around in our large, safe and secure puppy yard. Our puppy yard is a large, fully artificial turfed area under the shade of a big tree. It has a large open cabin/house when they can sleep and have shelter, full of warm blankets. The area outside has obstacles for mental development, such as toys, sand pit/wading pool and more. We have a bungee tug toy hanging from the tree which also provides for lots of amusement.
The area is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected twice daily with a high pressure gurney. Puppies also spend a lot of time inside with us and in our large backyard. We spend lots of time with them, watching them grow and develop. We observe the pack hierarchy and have seen how their confidence levels can sometimes change when the puppies are exposed to new environments, so we take them into different rooms and environments.
Living in suburbia, our puppies are safely exposed to many different kinds of noises, trains, trucks, cars, and other loud noises, preparing them for the world and building their confidence.
