Breeding

Camano Island Kennels occupies five secluded acres on scenic Camano Island, Washington, in the great Pacific Northwest. Our family-run operation strives to maintain our reputation as “Breeders of Distinction.” Our goal is to produce the ultimate German Shepherd Dog.

We are able to achieve this by careful breeding that balances sound temperament and character, correct structure and working ability. We believe that quality is more important than quantity.

In our kennel we maintain a small number of breeding males and females, younger stock and retired dogs. Our dogs are of 100% European lines. All of our breeding dogs have achieved working titles under the very rigid requirements set down by the German Verein fur Deutsche Schaferhund (SV) and the WUSV, to meet the World Standard for the German Shepherd Dog.

All dogs have access to three acres of park-like, fenced area for exercise, training and playtime. All pups are well socialized and temperament-tested. We spend a great deal of time with each individual puppy on a one-on-one basis.

It is always difficult for us when the time comes for a puppy to leave to go to its new home. It is of the utmost importance for us to know that the puppy is adjusting to his or her new environment, is happy and is doing well. Therefore, with the purchase of a Camano Island Kennels puppy, you also acquire the Camano Island Kennels staff. We always will be available to consult with you and to answer any questions that you may have.
