Here at Becker Ranch we strive for health and mental soundness above all else! We're an AKC Breeder with H.E.A.R.T., Good Dog rated Excellent, and approved by the AKC as an Evaluator.
We do not discriminate on color as German Shepherds come in many. So long as health, mental soundness, and drive is intact to do what they were designed to accomplish as that should always be the priority.
You will not find a breeder that offers more than we do in every aspect. We go above and beyond in health testing all parents, health testing pups before go home, Early Neurological Stimulation, temperament evaluations, insurance, vaccinations, DNA testing, titling, and matching families. All puppies are even started on basic training and recall before they leave.
We want you to know that you support a family when purchasing from Becker Ranch! We believe in doing it right or not at all. We do not breed to financially survive, we both have fantastic careers. This is our passion and our entire reason for being. We are big supporters of fund raisers and efforts surrounding Autism as one of our very own was diagnosed at 2! We also have a boy that was born with Gastroschisis that we support all efforts surrounding!
In total we have 6 fantastic intelligent children. Our children are beyond respectful to all animals, pouring their hearts into your puppies before they come to you and it shows! You not only support a family but you support a breeder in it for all the right reasons.... to better the breed!
All sires & dams undergo extensive health testing available to date. In addition to mental soundness testing. When matching a pair, much planning and thought goes into it. We do not just pair them because they’re two pure bred German Shepherds. They must pass health testing first and foremost, we only breed OFA Excellent/Good/Fair rated hips nothing else. In addition to PennHip testing. We look at body structure, drive, health testing results, and temperament that will compliment each other. To improve in any deficient areas the other match may have, creating a well rounded, sounds great minded, healthy German Shepherd.
OFA essentially rates based on the depth of the hip socket and how the femoral head is seated. PennHip looks at the distraction or how far the capital ligament will stretch. This is very important as a dog with OFA Good hips with a lot of distraction from the capital ligament will get a lot of knocking around causing hip dysplasia.
So we feel hip evaluation in a two part process is critical. All of our German Shepherds have both completed prior to moving forward.
Our founding stud here is OFA Good and PennHip rated him in the top 5% for the breed. That’s something to be proud of! Sometimes we will utilize an outside stud, but he must meet health testing, titling, and mental soundness requirements.
We all know they can't live as long as us! But we want to make sure it's as long as possible. Ultimately we want you to have a healthy family member. All puppies come Embark tested, X-rays, vet provided vaccines and inspection, AKC Reunite Microchip, Trupanion Pet Insurance without any waiting periods and in most cases they pay your vet directly, basic training started, and a health guarantee. Above all else Reproductive Savant support for life. WE ARE HERE TO SUPPORT YOU!
