German Shepherds Florida does not present year round litters of puppies or advertise a constant stock of German Shepherd puppies for sale.
We are not a Kennel or boarding facility. We work with Handlers in Dog Sport and a select group of Working Line German Shepherd Breeders to present German Shepherds we believe are a good representation of the breed displaying good temperament and good potential as IPO and other protection sport dogs, then assist them in training those German Shepherds through Club Activity, Training Directors, and Onsite Training at either GSF or other reputable Training Facilities.
GSF only works with very reputable Working Line German Shepherd Breeders who seek to improve on the breed with titled healthy dogs actively displaying good temperament and success in protection dog sport. It is understood throughout the German Shepherd Community that these types of Germans Shepherd Puppies make the best Trained Protection Sport dogs, the most reliable personal and executive level protection dogs, as well as the most loyal family pets.
For this reason you may often find no puppies for sale on this site. We do however, always offer training and seek to assist New Handlers.
We're passionate about educating Handlers with knowledge on what constitutes an exceptional German Shepherd Puppy. All of the dogs featured on GSF will make great family pets, and with proper training; potential AKC Registered IPO competitive sport dogs or Police K9s. We encourage you to involve your new German Shepherd puppy in Field Trials that interest you!

GSF IPO Foundations Training Schedule
We have included the following schedule for owners of IPO Sport Puppies who need a little direction in their training paradigm. We hope this assists you in your training. There are many different approaches to training an IPO Sport Puppy. This is the GSF IPO Foundations Training Schedule, which includes engagement and drive building, environmental neutralization, obedience shaping, puppy bite work foundations, tracking foundations, crate training, and house manners. The exact times of each event can vary depending on your work schedule - this is provided to give you a general idea of tasks that need to be accomplished by the IPO Handler during the upbringing of the working dog. It is important in Florida to track early to avoid ant infestation of tracking bait and it is also wise to split obedience shaping drills into multiple smaller sessions.
