  • We can deliver your puppy/dog to you in an air conditioned vehicle for an additional fee of $30 an hour plus gas. But within a 5 hour drive (according to GPS) or you can drive to pick up your puppy. Due to new USDA rules, we unfortunately can no longer ship puppies. If you wanted to ship your puppy, you would need to first come to our kennels and then ship the puppy out yourself.  Call us for more details 619-987-8923
  • Our deposit is $300. We charge an additional $10 to cover our costs via PayPal. We take deposits seriously and puppies are not an impulse buy. Deposits are non-refundable but can be moved onto another litter. We are now able to take credit cards in person or through pay pal online.
  • While we do accept checks for deposits and payments before pick up day, any final payments made on pick up day needs to be cash or Credit Card.
  • Approximately 10% of litters are not successful for many various reasons. By placing a deposit on a litter not yet born, please keep this in mind and be willing to move your deposit onto another litter at a later date.
  • Explanation for limited registration: We charge $500 extra to anyone wanting breeding rights. This allows us to offer puppies to pet homes at a more affordable price. You will still get AKC papers except they will say limited. If you bred a dog that was registered limited, then you would not be able to register the offspring. This limit however, can be lifted by the breeder.
  • Apartment living: All our AKC German Shepherd Puppies For Sale in San Diego, California are bred for longevity, strong hips and elbows, and great minds with working drive but able to rest when the work is done. That said, while it can be done, I strongly urge anyone who lives in an apartment to think carefully about how much time and work it can be to keep a large, working dog in an apartment. I will not sell a puppy to anyone who lives in an apartment and leaves the dog home alone all day. At least one person needs to be home during the day. The dog needs to be taken outside to play at least once a day and taken for potty breaks many times EVERY day. Also, please check with your apartments rules on German Shepherds; some complexes do not allow them.
  • New Policy Starting March 2014 NO puppy visits until puppies are 7 weeks old. New strains of the Parvo Virus are abundant and it is my job to keep puppies safe. I used to use a high titer Parvo Vaccine at 4 weeks and this has proven to no longer protect all puppies. So please understand as much as you would like to visit with your puppies as they grow I can no longer allow this until they are 7 weeks.  I will send out emails with pictures or videos weekly. No outside dogs are allowed at anytime. Thank you for understanding how important it is for me to keep the puppies safe.
  • We ENCOURAGE you to visit other breeders so you have an informed opinion and we have no doubt you will be thoroughly impressed when you visit our kennels. If you do visit other breeders, please do so on a different day that you visit.
  • Von Ward Kennels will take back any puppy at any time in their lives if their owners can no longer care for them. Please never take a Von Wards dog to a shelter if you can no longer keep them.  
  • This is a chart showing the standard weight for GSD’S. While most of our dogs are larger than the standard, we do have a couple of breeding females that are within standard.
