What separates us from other Michigan German Shepherd Breeders

Von Buchmann German Shepherds, aka Michigan German Shepherds, is not a kennel. We just love German Shepherd dogs and puppies, they are family members to us.

I grew up with German Shepherd dogs and have loved them my entire life. My daughter started training German Shepherd Puppies and it has brought back all of my favorite memories of them. She and I both are now involved in Schutzhund/IPO, showing, and breeding shepherds, and I’ve fallen in love all over again.

What a wonderful experience this has been, breeding and raising German Shepherd puppies. Watching the development of them as they grow with their new families, feedback has been amazing. Many families have come back for a second German Shepherd Puppy.

I have been so pleased with her that this past November we brought home another of Peggy’s little ones. He is an amazingly sweet, loving, playful and handsome little guy. We couldn’t be happier with our kids.

Puppy Socialization

What is Socialization?

  • It’s actually just what it sounds like –introducing a German Shepherd puppy or dog to social situations. This includes people, other dogs, other pets, new areas and different situations. Each experience must be a positive experience.

Why Is Socialization So Important?

  • All puppies, including German Shepherd puppies, need to learn appropriate behavior. It’s critical for puppies to learn this early on. Otherwise, your German Shepherd dog will be either too shy or aggressive in varying situations. You want your dog to be able to handle new people and new situations.

How von Buchmann German Shepherds Socializes Puppies

  • In my home, we have plenty of different people in and out of our Michigan home. They all love puppies and dogs and play with them. We also expose our German Shepherd puppies to other dogs and pets. Another socialization technique is taking the dogs to new environments. We make sure our German Shepherd puppies have as many socialization opportunities as possible. Here are some socialization tips you can use once you bring your German Shepherd puppy home:
