Casamoko Shepherds is a professional German Shepherd Breeder located in
Rhode Island. We strive to breed high quality German Shepherds that come
as close to the AKC standard as possible. Health and temperament are our
main concerns and being a veterinarian makes the health part essential. Our
dogs are all well socialized and attend training classes from an early age.
Casamoko Shepherds strives to produce puppies that can do it all-so far we
have puppies that are competing in conformation (dog shows), obedience,
agility, rally, herding, tracking, therapy work, service dogs, schutzhund, and of
course many that are wonderful companions and family members.
We typically have one to two litters of puppies a year and are not a kennel that
produces numerous litters per year and lives off of the dogs. This is strictly a
hobby and is done with the intention of improving the breed and our lines.
Good breeders do not make money off their dogs or puppies because the
money is put back into the dogs. This is definitely the case at Casamoko
Shepherds, as each year we spend more on the dogs than what we make.
This is why this is a hobby and not a profession or a business. Thankfully my
work as a veterinarian allows me to support this hobby.
Our dogs are a part of our family, first and foremost, and that is what we want
for our puppies. We spend most of our free time training and traveling around
the country with our dogs, competing in various events from conformation,
agility, herding, tracking, obedience and rally. We strive to produce wonderful
dogs that are loving family members for other people as well. Our dogs are
exceptional examples of what a German Shepherd should be. If you are
looking for a German Shepherd that is a cut above the rest, with an
outstanding temperament and health, and not just a pet, then please contact
us so we can help you find your future family member.
We are the proud home of 3 generations of OFA CHIC, Herding Instinct
Certified, and GSDCA Temperament Certified Dogs!!
We are planning our next litters for March and April 2016.
Please contact us to be placed on the waiting list.
