"AMALABERG" is a hobby kennel where dogs are part of the family.
They are trained and have an active life, they exercise on a regular
love trotting along the bicycle, they love playing and working
and...just being happy dogs.
We strive for best conformation and temperament, to reduce and
as much as possible the breed's genetically transmitted problems and
is to produce healthy and great quality purebred dogs, using some of
the best bloodlines in the world.
Responsible dog breeding is both: art and science and our "recipe to
success" in our work with the dogs, is to be 100% committed, to
research and work hard to select, raise, train and constantly
improve the quality.
It is a demanding activity, that requires 24/7 time and work.
The "Amalaberg" dogs have both: beauty and balanced temperament -
they have the skills required to be suitable for any environment
their happy disposition, energy and natural pleasure to work makes
them easy to
from just being reliable and well behaved family companions to
highly trained sport and service dogs.
They are on a high quality diet that keeps them healthy and fit.
All our dogs are x-rayed and OFA certified for hips and elbows and
tested for and certified A-clear for DM (Degenerative Myelopathy).
All are shown and evaluated by well-known judges as true to the
standard in all details and all have exceptional results in
important shows and competitions.
They are trained, and many of them also go through high level
training in IPO (Schutzhund), are trialed and breed surveyed.
All our breeding dogs pass their ENDURANCE test (20 km of running).
Our puppies leave at around 8 weeks of age, 3 times preventively
vaccinated, with a puppy kit containing food and materials that

with a dog, health and vaccination, etc.
All our dogs and puppies are CKC registered.
The puppies go to their new homes with 6 weeks free health insurance
the moment they go into their new home – this is offered through the
Canadian Kennel Club.
Sometimes, puppies that live close enough will gather together here,
under George's supervision, for training classes - for proper
and for learning "good manners" while having a lot of fun, in a
relaxed and natural environment.
This is beneficial for both owner and dog and this helps the young
turn into the good companions they are expected to become and
reaching their genetic potential.
The relationships that develop with our puppies owners will often
turn into lifelong friendships.
It is very rewarding for us to see our beautiful German Shepherds
full and happy lives and bringing so much joy to their families.
