"The character of the ideal GSD is loyal, courageous, confident
and highly trainable.  A good German Shepherd is the essence
of the working and companion dog."  Bonnie Dalzell

Casamoko Shepherds is a professional German Shepherd Breeder located Wisconsin.  
We were previously located in Massachusetts from 2005 to 2008 and in Rhode Island
from 2008 to June of 2016.  

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, barn hunt, nose work, lure coursing, and of course many that are wonderful
companions and family members.  

We typically have two to three 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, rally and barn hunt.  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, then please contact us so
we can help you find your future family member.   

We are the proud home of 4 generations of OFA CHIC, Herding Instinct Certified, and
GSDCA Temperament Certified Dogs!!
