Festeburg German Shepherds
Festeburg Kennels is a small family-run kennel near Sherbrooke, Quebec that specializes in breeding German Shepherd Dogs with excellent pedigree. Our goal is to produce dogs that are perfect companions for families and individuals. These puppies also have great potential for working, Schutzhund and showing. For this reason, we have chosen dogs that exhibit not only the beautiful red and black colour characteristic of the West German show line but also ones that have a family history of excellent performance in shows and great temperament.
All our dogs are good with children, and we carefully socialize them with children from a young age. Although fully capable of achieving great things at shows and Schutzhund trials, that is not the only thing in which German Shepherds excel. They also make amazing family dogs! Whether you have young children or you are alone and need a loyal, protective companion, acquiring one of our puppies is ideal for those with an active lifestyle.
Health is obviously of utmost importance. We make sure our dogs meet or exceed the acceptable breeding standards for both hip and elbow dysplasia and are tested clear of degenerative myelopathy (DM). We will not breed a dog unless he or she is in excellent health. We will breed our females only when we feel that they are in optimal condition to carry a healthy pregnancy.
Family is important, and we have a heart for children who have no parents. We set aside part of the profit from the sale of our puppies for the adoption of children.
