If you are interested in adding a noble dog to your family who cares not where you live, what you feed, what kind of couch you have to sit on;
only that they can share that life with you - you might be looking for a German Shepherd Dog.

You can have 2000 acres for a dog to explore, but a GSD will be happiest lying next to your chair. They are usually an excellent judge of character - so some of your friends may not pass the test. For more information on the dogs of Terra Norté - click on the various links above.

Primo - She's mine

If you are interested in working with your dog in one of the oldest team activities known to man: Herding. Rancho Terra Norté has an active training program to help you and your dog achieve your potential. While we love working with Shepherds, other herding & working breeds are welcome.
