Philosophy

 

Over the past 30 years our dogs have been involved in everything from Search & Rescue,
K-9 units (Minneapolis, Ramsey county and St. Paul), theatrical productions, movies,
competitions (US and abroad) in both conformation and obedience, handicap assistance
programs, but the vast majority as someone's family pet.

Puppy and Child
The philosophy behind the breeding at Jerland Kennels
has been to emphasize three things in our shepherds:
conformation, intelligence, and temperament.
Our idea - the total dog.

A dog, like any valued possession, must be structurally
sound. It makes no difference how intelligent a dog may
be if he suffers from physical faults. Dogs, like humans,
have degrees of intelligence and areas of talent in which
they excel. Here too, the temperament of the animal is
most important when considering its particular avenue
of use.


We try to match each of these qualities with the dog's new family. Jerland dogs are now
found in fifty states and over thirty foreign countries. This spans over thirty four years and
six generations of home-bred dogs.

Our dream and goal is to provide excellence to each new client. We sincerely believe that
dog - man's best friend - can also be a source for new found friends of the human kind.

If you are interested in obtaining a puppy from Jerland Kennel, we will work with you to
match the individual to his new family.
