For Sale

At this time we are featuring no  German Shepherd Puppies for sale. German Shepherds Florida will advertise only German Shepherd Puppies from proven Schutzhund lines.  We seek to place working line German Shepherds with IPO Handlers for use in IPO and other Dog Sport. German Shepherds are loyal family pets and make excellent protection dogs when properly trained.

BASIC OBEDIENCE -   German Shepherds trained with the GSF System of training begin basic obedience training at eight weeks of age.  This training includes imprinting and shaping introductory commands such as: come, sit, down, and touch.  The touch command is used for more complex touch pad training later in heeling, jumps,  and send outs. Basic Obedience classes are offered to pet owners and IPO enthusiasts using a motivational approach. 

ADVANCED DOG SPORT TRAINING - Advanced training in IPO available:

    Check the CLASSES page for available IPO Schutzhund Classes at GSF.

Tracking -  Scent pad foundation work, beginning straight tracks, adding turns, and article identification.

Protection - Puppy bite work foundation, intermediate developmental bite work (IPO sport specific), the bark and hold, the directed search, and advanced protection skills. 

Advanced Obedience - Focused heeling, the retrieve, jumps, commands in motion, and the directed send away.   

BH Preparatory Class - For New Schutzhund IPO Handlers 

Helper Work and Advanced Dog Sport Training is by appointment only.

GSF BASIC TRAINING SCHEDULE - Follow this link for easy to follow instructions in basic IPO Schutzhund Tracking for First Time IPO Dog Handlers.

German Shepherds Florida (GSF) will add more training aids for the New IPO Handler as time progresses to include basic Obedience and Protection Drills.  For further and more personalized study we recommend seeking an IPO Schutzhund Club and contacting our GSF Trainer.   If you would like information on Clubs or Local Trainers please submit a contact form with your question or simply call between 8:00 AM and 9:00 PM Monday - Saturday.

CRATE TRAINING - All Handlers with German Shepherds trained by German Shepherds Florida are encouraged to crate train starting at eight weeks of age.  At GSF we recommend crate training of all German Shepherds, especially working K9 pups and IPO sport dogs, as these German Shepherds will spend a good portion of their life in vehicles.


SOCIALIZATION- One of the most important phases of training a new puppy is how to behave around families and other dogs.   At German Shepherds, the dogs we train will have a social advantage and head start on most kennel dogs as we actively socialize and encourage Handlers to socialize each German Shepherd in our training system with families and other dogs.


REINFORCEMENT- Of course it is up to the new owner to reinforce these behaviors and insure continued education to assure success.  For more extensive and advanced dog training we encourage every new dog owner to find a field sport of personal interest and unlock your German Shepherd's full potential.

We also encourage new dog owners to check out the Leerburg DVD's we offer as well as the Leerburg Online University.
