Welcome and thank you for visiting Alsace Royale German Shepherds Hobby Kennel, The home of Old Fashioned Traditional Large Straight Backed German Shepherd Dogs. I do not breed for the Conformation show ring, and we do not line breed as we totally oppose of this in every way. I breed Old Fashion Straight Back German Shepherds for family companions. They are “straight backed”, in reference to the excessive slope of some American show dogs and the roaching of some German show dogs. They are called Old Fashioned Straight Back German Shepherds.
We are a small Hobby Kennel of top quality Old Fashion Straight Back German Shepherd dogs, situated on the scenic Inishowen peninsula in northern County Donegal, Ireland just 20 minutes from the Foyle bridge in Derry/LondonDerry, UK.
All our dogs are much loved family pets that work on our small farm of approximately 100 acres on the scenic Inishowen peninsula in northern County Donegal, Ireland. We maintain a high standard of bloodlines and only breed registered dogs that are fully certified by the British Veterinary Association.
As one of just a few Old Fashion Straight Back GSD breeders my main goal for my breeding program is to breed Old Fashion Straight Back German Shepherds Dogs & puppies that are Intelligent, Noble, Dignified, Sensitive, Loyal and Sound in mind and body.
Our dogs are bred for visual and physical perfection that are of good temperament and are fantastic with children. They are big with large heads and are heavily boned. I like calm but energetic dogs with no hind end slope, straight top lines (backs) with large heads, heavy bones, and tall frames very good in obedience and agility.
German Shepherds are remarkable individuals and will blend in immediately as part of your family to become a great protector and loyal member. They are extremely intelligent working dogs with a top class temperament that allows them to respond readily to training, always anxious to please and are delighted to do your bidding.
I have had German Shepherds since childhood and can assure you that these are undoubtedly one of the most capable and trainable breeds in the entire canine kingdom. We are very proud to say that over the years we have been very fortunate that our puppies/dogs have went on to be therapy dogs providing affection and comfort to people in schools, hospices and retirement homes. Having a German Shepherd as part of your family will be rewarding and fulfilling. They are pets with a purpose, acting as companion and protector.
