Dedicated to Building A Better 
German Shepherd Dog
And fostering the Human-Canine Bond


We have several males and females who make up our breeding program. All of our dogs are tested and certified before being used for breeding. We also like to participate in conformation and other events in order to ensure that they meet the breed standard for the breed in terms of structure and intelligence.



Here at Gableridge German Shepherds we take our job as breeders very seriously.  We take great care to ensure that the dogs in our breeding program are sound and that puppy owners are matched with the puppy that fits their needs and lifestyle.

Welcome to our Website!

We.. are Sandra and Mark and ... our German Shepherds.  

Mark and I have both had German Shepherds in our lives for as long as we can remember, and we have learned to love the breed to the exclusion of all others.

We started in the breed like many enthusiasts, purchasing our first dog, with no big plans other than to do some obedience work.

Our love of the breed led to our first litter in 1999 and since then we have been dedicated to improving and maintaining the best qualities of the German Shepherd through our breeding program.

We show our dogs in conformation and obedience and take part in various performance events such Scent Detection, Agility, Barn Hunt, Dock Diving and anything else our wonderful dogs want to do.  Over the years we have bred American and Canadian Champions.  We have learned that Temperament and Health are the key to success in any ring and for those puppies going to companion homes.
