-- The Liturgy of St. Basil

"O God, enlarge within us the sense of fellowship with all living things, our brethren the animals to whom you have given the earth as their home in common with us.  May we realize that they lve, not for us alone, but for themselves and for You, and that they love the sweetness of life."

For over 40 years, we have worked hard to make our German Shepherd Dog breeding program produce the best possible companion dog for individuals and families. We strive for excellence in temperament, personality and physical structure by carefully researching select bloodlines. Together with the early handling and socialization we give our developing pups, we believe this strategy creates the best possible outcomes for our 8-10 week old pups and their new owners as they get to know one another.

Our breeding dogs live in a family environment, each with a monk or a nun who is responsible for the dog's training and care. Some of our breeding dogs live with local families who are in close contact with the monastery.

Dogs are essentially social creatures who thrive when directed positively. For this reason, our approach emphasizes the social relationship as the single most important factor in your life with your dog. Developing a healthy relationship with your dog depends foremost on establishing a climate of mutual trust and respect. This begins at adoption and continues throughout your life with your dog.
