1010 Sunset Road, Spring Grove, IL 60081
Sired by Yenn Vom Haus Farrenkopf , we have 3 wonderful litters and are super
pleased with the results of our breeding program! Never know until the puppies come
out, what looks good on paper and research, will turn out, and they have surpassed
our expectations. Sunset Training Center is a K-9 training and behavior modification
facility first, we breed a small number of puppies from what we see is a need for well
bred, well raised, healthy German Shepherds.
1) Not a puppy mill and not a backyard breeder, STC has just a few shepherds, never
more than can get attention every day. All puppies are raised in the home, with
constant love and attention. We know what we are doing and have a very careful
breeding program using only imported German Shepherd dogs from top German
bloodlines, that should be bred to continue the breed at it's best. (We are on 10 acres-
plenty of room!)
2) Fabulous pedigrees from both parents- yes, it matters- by breeding good natured,
healthy dogs from healthy, good natured bloodlines, your chances of getting a sickly,
bad tempered dog are cut to almost impossibly low levels.
3) Both parents imported and SV registered which means several generations have all
4) shots, wormed, vet checked
5) Behaviorist works with the puppies from day one, they are brought up with the
highest possible standards for the psychological and physical well being.
6) puppies are bred to be "protection/ defence" driven rather than the more
common "prey driven". Prey driven is what makes a dog wanting to chase a cat, or
anything else! Protection/ defence driven dogs protect the family, they do not hunt like
a prey driven dog would . We feel prey driven dogs have very little room in a family
environment. All our dogs are totally trustworthy around the neighborhood kids , none
chase cats etc, all alert to strangers or visitors, all stop and are friendly when told. We
will NEVER breed a dog that needs to be locked away around strangers or kids, to us
that is a very severe temperament fault.
7) hips, elbows, and temperament is guaranteed!
8) Free training help is included! (We want this to be the best dog you ever owned- or,
owned you, as the case may be!)
9) We keep some puppies back and those are placed already started on training
basic obedience, leash training, and crate training, soon will be starting the
preliminaries for protection work. We will be happy to finish the training for you so you
can take your new family member home and just enjoy!
Good German Shepherds should be able to be very versatile and safe. If someone
does not allow you to pet the parents of the pups, or the parents appear nasty, walk
away- the dogs need to be safe and bad temperament is often passed on- why start
from a negative? While being a good watch and guard dog, our dogs are bred not to
be vicious or bad tempered. It's the difference between a police officer and the mad
man with a semi automatic that shoots at the public. Totally different mindset!
Come out and meet our "kids" we love to show them off!
CALL US FOR AVAILABLE PUPPY INFORMATION- WE CAN'T KEEP UP WITH
THE WEBSITE! Pages are being updated!
a) had hips and elbows that passed
b) had temperament tests, (to weed out vicious or bad temperament dogs )
c ) had obedience titles
d) had courage tests (fearful dogs do not pass)
e) had obedience titles (hard to train dogs need not apply!)
f) had working titles
g) have conformation tiltes (beauty pagent winners)
h) received a KKL1 rating ( to breed a dog must have a KKL or KKL2 rating,
KKL being the most desirable, KKL2 means they are approved but not top of
the line).Why does this matter? Because from good breeding comes good
healthy dogs with great temperament, gorgeous looks, and a desire to
please. Looking at the pedigrees and the pictures of the dogs, there is a
consistency that comes from generations of careful breeding of the best to
the best. All our puppies look very similar, and people ask about that. If you
breed the best to the best in the standard, you will get a uniformly nice litter
of pups with consistently great temperament, willingness to please, excellent
conformation, and healthy!

Never thought I'd ever see a
dog as great as my old Max,
but this puppy is the best dog I
have ever had. Housebroken in
one day, listens to everything I
say, follows me everywhere.
People stop me on the street
and wonder where I found such
a beautiful dog. It really shows
the amount of love and work
that went into this puppy!
This puppy has surpassed all
our expectations! I hate to
buy long distance but
something told me to do it
and I am so glad I did- thank
you so very, very much.
Loved the fact that you offer
free training for your puppies
for the first year, but Karo is so
smart and eager to please, we
don't need it!
By the way, someone tried to
break into our house last
night, Karo growled and
barked like a big boy, And he
is only 5 months, can you
believe it? He is so nice with
our visitors and the neighbor
kids I never thought he would
be such a good watchdog. It's
amazing how these dogs turn it
on and off, we are very
pleased and want to inquiry
about getting him a "little
brother or sister". Can you let
us know what you would
recommend and when you
would have a puppy available?

Since I got Gretchen (Sunshine
X Yenn baby), I feel safe again.
so scary sometimes, but now I
take walks with her and sleep so
love her and come out and say
hi when they see us, it's really
nice. The other day we were
walking and there was a strange
man and Gretchen did this little
growl and watched him really
carefully. He crossed the street
and I was so relieved and so
proud of her. Thank you for
giving me my life back.
German Shepherds vom Sunset Platz
Thank you so much for always
answering the phone and answering
any questions we had on the new
puppy. We are so surprised to see the
level of caring you have shown after
the puppy went home with us. We
really didn't expect it! Thank you again
for letting me be a "pest"! By the way,
Hannah is a doll- we adore her!

I am thrilled with our new puppy, thank
you. I never thought I could love it as
much as Max (the first puppy I got from
you), but it sure is easy, he's wonderful
and the two get along great- thank you
Des Moines, Iowa
We can't believe how patient this
puppy is with my kids, he's so
gentle with them. I'm glad we
took your advice and got the
older more trained puppy, the
extra cost was more than worth
it. He was housebroken in one
day and is super well behaved.
Thank you for doing such a
Chuck and Luisa W.
