About

Welcome to Hektor Haus German Shepherd Lovers.

puppiesThis website exists to:

  • Provide information on German Shepherds
  • Track the lives of the 23 puppies we raised
  • Tell the story of our dogs
  • Tell the story of other people’s dogs

This site was formerly known as “Hektor Haus German Shepherds”.

As Hektor Haus German Shepherds we bred our West German Show Line German Shepherd Dog, Aura, 3 times. She produced a litter of 9 (the A litter), a litter of 7 (the B litter, and a litter of 6 (the C litter). We tracked their growth on this website daily.

Articles on this website:

The opinions expressed on this site are mostly Len’s, and, they are just that, opinions. There are plenty of people in the German Shepherd world a whole lot more experienced and educated than myself; there is also a whole lot of bad information. I am not the Dog Whisperer. I try to either stick with relaying my own experiences or posting articles which I have found to be accurate. I have heard inaccuracies and misconceptions from breeders, random people, trainers, dog owners, and veterinarians. I am no better than any of these people, however, I will try to keep my mouth shut when I do not know what I am talking about. Feel free to comment or email me with any questions or concerns which you may have.
