At Milnerhaus, we’ve been breeding German Shepherd Dogs for over 25 years. Our puppies have gone into homes as the family pet, into competitive situations such as Schutzhund or AKC Obedience, and into service with local Law Enforcement. The goal is always to breed a healthy, happy, energetic dog that is willing to please his handler.
The stock used is all German bloodlines with an emphasis on the temperament.
The definition of temperament is how the dog reacts to the world around him. We would discourage breeding any dog that shows fear or unsureness in situations that are non-threatening. The dogs should display a self-confidence and openness to new situations and should recover quickly when taken by surprise. A good food drive and playfulness are always encouraged. Simply put, we are breeding athletic dogs with lots of drive to play and work.
Our admiration for the German Shepherd Dog has led us to Germany many times to find good breeding stock and to keep up on the latest training developments. Owner Albert Milner has also been a judge for Schutzhund USA for ten years and has traveled throughout the United States judging shows and evaluating dogs. Our desire to learn more will never cease and the breeding of German Shepherd Dogs will continue to evolve.
