SOME VIDEOS OF FIRST CHUNK LITTER HERE
For your general information I have included pictures of Chunk's first litter (NOTE: breeding was with another female). The below pictured pups were at approximately 10 weeks old when the photos were taken.
We expect these pups to be very active dogs with sound dispositions. They should be excellent candidates for personal / family protection companions, service work and for competition in the protection sports. They will be your all around best buddy.
Chunk's sire, a German import, is Ken von der Grube Waldecke, Sch 3, P-1, PD-1.
Chunk's dam is Ora von Seltzerhaus, P-1
THESE PUPS HAVE BEEN RAISED, LIVING WITH THEIR PARENTS AND THE OTHER MATURE GERMAN SHEPHERDS ON THE PREMISES. THEY HAVE ALSO HAVE HAD CONSTANT CONTACT WITH THEIR HUMAN FAMILY. THE CONSTANT CONTACT WITH THE HUMANS AND DOGS IN THEIR HOUSEHOLD CERTAINLY HELPS IN STIMULATING THEIR BRAIN WHICH, AT THIS AGE, IS LIKE A SPONGE AND WILL PAY OFF FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIVES. THEY ALREADY UNDERSTAND SOME BASICS OF HOUSEHOLD MANNERS AND YOU WILL FIND THAT THEIR EARLY TRAINING AND EXPERIENCES WILL GO A LONG WAY TO INSURING YOU A SUCCESSFUL RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR NEW CANINE FAMILY MEMBER. PLEASE CONTINUE STIMULATING YOUR PUP AND FOLLOW THE EXCELLENT ADVICE GIVEN BY THE AMERICAN KENNEL CLUB, AS FOLLOWS:
"Play Some Brain Games With Your Dog"
"Whether your dog is a canine Einstein or a bit of a slacker, he needs physical and mental stimulation. After all, most dogs were bred for specific jobs, like hunting, retrieving, guarding the home, or carting heavy loads. Many dogs today are tasked with nothing more challenging than taking a walk, pointing at the treat jar, or taking the best space on the sofa. And bored dogs can sometimes become destructive dogs.
You can energize, entertain, and stimulate your dog by offering interactive dog toys such as puzzles. Puzzles often have treats inside, and your dog's challenge is to figure out how to get to the treat. A puzzle also requires him to remember how it works and what skills he needs to "win." For your dog, solving a puzzle in order to get a reward puts him to work and engages his mind. And an engaged, busy dog is a happy dog.
Puzzle toys come in different levels of difficulty, different sizes, shapes, and prices. See if your dog is up to the challenge!
Treat me kindly, my beloved friend, for no heart in all the world is more grateful for kindness than the loving heart of mine.
Do not break my spirit with a stick, for though I lick your hand between blows, your patience and understanding will more quickly teach me the things you would have me learn.
Speak to me often, for your voice is the world's sweetest music, as you must know by the fierce wagging of my tail when your footsteps fall upon my waiting ear.
Please take me inside when it is cold and wet, for I ask no greater glory than the privilege of sitting at your feet beside the hearth.
Keep my pan filled with water, for I cannot tell you when I suffer thirst. Feed me clean food that I may stay well, to romp and play and do your bidding, to walk by your side and stand ready, willing, and able to protect you with my life, should your life be in danger.
And my friend, when I am very old and no longer able to enjoy good health, hearing and sight, do not make heroic efforts to keep me going.
I shall leave this Earth knowing with the last breath I draw, that my fate was always safest in your hands...
I will always be your BEST FRIEND.
A PLEA FROM YOUR NEW COMPANION
