German Shepherd Puppies available- World Class Lines

German Shepherd Puppies at Lucescu Kennels

We breed Working Line Shepherds and have some of the BEST lines in the World from Europe. Our dogs are sometimes referred to as Straight back or Flat back German Shepherds.  ALL breeding dogs are Temperament, Health Tested and have HIGH Train-ability actively working in Schutzhund (IGP, IPO)

Breeding Announcement

We currently are taking deposits for our current litters.   We have puppies available from the TT-Litter- Zenyatta and Xelo.  Check out below for the TT-Litter. Puppies will be ready to go the 3rd week of December 2022. 

We also have a young puppy available with training started, A super special girl. Must go to an active home that will give her something to do, competition, sport, etc... would be a bonus. Contact us if you are interested.

If you are looking for a German Shepherd Puppy, we hope you enjoy our site. Please tour through it and enjoy. Don't forget to take a look at the Our Dogs page to see the breeding parents, grand-parents and maybe great grand-parents of these puppies. We usually have only a couple litters a year. Early reservations for our puppies are strongly recommended as we usually have the litter sold very quickly.  We are located in the Niagara Region of Ontario, Canada but can ship world-wide for the right person and right match. Our breeding dogs are put through vigorous testing for health, temperament and train-ability.  We compete with them in the extreme sport of Schutzhund, IPO, IGP at Regional, National and World Level. We have made Team Canada 4 different times to represent CANADA with our dogs at the World Championships usually held in Europe.


We do make appointments to view our breeding dogs, puppies that we are keeping for the program and to talk about our program, diet, vaccination protocol, etc....  Please contact us if you are interested in coming out for a visit.    Thank-you...

                                      This is our 12x40 puppy kennel with temperature control and indoor/outdoor access, with two big yards attached for them to spend lots of time outside playing and getting used to new environments. All litters are born in the house, they remain inside until about 4 weeks of age, at which time they need more room and are moved outside to bigger enclosures. We have a variety of things we do to get them exposed to many different environments or sounds that makes them more versatile and sound.

Thank you for your interest in our German Shepherd Puppies...

We continue to have remarkable success with this being a truly beneficial way to begin a puppies life. Our puppies are very easy to house break, as this is started here with us and their mother’s. They are also well adjusted to environment because of all the sounds they hear and all the scents they smell from a very, very young age. Our puppies are going outside to go to the washroom at 4-5 weeks old on their own and are also exposed to many different types of surfaces, places,  etc.

Well Rounded Individuals   

These are all things that help make our dogs very well-rounded individuals and part of the reason that our dogs can fit well into any kind of life they grow up in. Over the last 30+ years, we have whelped 900+ pups here at Lucescu Kennels with great success. We have raised over 200 puppies to adults and know VERY WELL what we produce. 140 of these pups have been what we have bred and about 60 have been imported litters from Europe so we really know our lines, plus we have something else to compare them to. We have trained, x-rayed, vet checked and temperament tested all of the dogs we've raised.
This experience is important when your choosing a breeder as the first 8-12 weeks of life will have a dramatic impact on the future of your dog. I have been involved in dogs all my life and have been in business since 1987. Through extended experience, we now have a truly solid foundation program for raising our dogs.
100%  of the best European Lines from Slovakia, Germany, Sweden, Austria, Belgium, Czech and the Netherlands.
All of our breeding dogs and puppies come from 100% top European Lines. We own, train & work all of our breeding parents and know first-hand of exactly what they are capable of, how they deal with stress, how easy they are to handle and how willing they are to please us. They are structurally very sound, with excellent nerves and very versatile to fit into many different types of homes. 

Improving the Breed with Every Generation

We believe, that unless you know 1st hand who and what the parents are, there will be hidden problems with the offspring, including health issues as well as temperament/nerves and train-ability problems. This is the reason that we OWN and live with ALL of our breeding dogs. We also train and compete with them to high levels to physically and mentally stress them so we can see where and if there are any weaknesses.   I have spent many months in Europe testing and working dogs so I also know our breeding dogs' lines very well. This is a yet another ASSET when breeding dogs together so we can better determine the outcome, therefore improving our breed with every generation.
We are happy to say that some of our pups are now the 5th or 6th generation of dogs that have been owned and trained by us. 

All of our puppies come with a set of vaccinations, de-worming 2x, tattoo, CKC registration, an educational package and due to an unparalleled success record, we confidently offer a 3-year written guarantee on health.

(Trained Puppy Program)

Due to the demand of our clients, we are now offering puppies at the age of 4 months old with pre-training already started. For those of you who do not want to deal with the YOUNG puppy or have careers or a busy life and cannot provide that EXTRA time that is needed to spend on the young puppy, we will do it for you. All contracts have to be done in  advance. Due to the time spent with each puppy, we will limit the number of puppies we will do at one time. We will socialize the puppy with people, children, and other dogs/ cats etc., depending on what kind of environment the puppy will be going into. We live in Ontario and it is a great place for many dog owners, with many places to go with the pups.
We also do all environmental training including different environments, noises, places, surfaces, etc.
We will crate train the puppy, get him/her accustomed to a vehicle, house break him/her and of course start with all the obedience training of sit, down, stay, come, heel and basic manners along with a few dog tricks depending on the individual that is buying him/her. We have found this to be a great success for both the new owners and the puppy.
We have several new programs for our puppies. We started them many years ago to help our clients have a smooth transition to owning one of our pups.
If you are interested, please contact us for further information.

Our newest and most popular training program offered with our own pups are a training package full of private sessions with you and your dog within the first year of their life. That way, we are with you all the way up to a year of age. This is a MOST important time to teach your pups much about life with you.  Don't miss out on this one, ask us about the details of this program. For clients living outside of Ontario, ask us how we can still help with this training. We have had many clients fly in to train with us, as you can't replace a great trusted relationship with your dog trainer.  If you live in Ontario, then this choice will be easy.

We also offer a 3 week program to cover crate training, vehicle rides, etc.....   and the newest program is a 4 month old program that has turned out to be a popular choice for many.  If you would like more details on any of our programs, please contact us and we can discuss it further.   Thank you


All breeding dogs have their own page under Our Dogs. Please be sure to check out their personal pages.

This is Eins and Tia, both are now retired but we have a few offspring from them in the breeding program.  Cybil is an Eins daughter and she just had a litter with our new Male CIRO.
