PREPARING FOR YOUR PUPPY
PUPPY TRAINING VIDEOS
The above videos are for general guidance and there are some aspects where VonBIOS does not agree and willing to respond to questions accordingly.
Trading Term Changes
Commencing January 1, 2021, where VonBIOS has not entered into an agreement with an approved Puppy Adoption Applicant (approval via email or in writing) and the required deposit has been received on or before December 31, 2020 for a VonBIOS Puppy, the following changes to our Puppy Adoption terms and conditions will come into effect -
Puppies are to be released to allocated families/handlers once the puppy has reached 12 weeks of age (previously 8.5 weeks). This will cater for more critical period development and preliminary obedience training by VonBIOS -
Prices, which are not the sole consideration, include a Breeding Agreement (part of the VonBIOS Canine Adoption and Breeding Agreement, are as follows -
Males = $5,000 (including Full (Mains) ANKC Pedigree Cerificate;
Females = $4,000 (including Full (Mains) ANKC Pedigree Cerificate.
Where a Puppy Adoption Applicant wishes to change any of the terms and conditions, whether specified in the above or in the standard formal Agreement, VonBIOS is always prepared to consider alternative arrangements, as long as it will serve the better interests of the VonBIOS puppy and progeny of same. In general, such arrangements relate to the experiences of the Applicant, intended purpose for the Puppy and any ongoing Breeding arrangements.

VonBIOS Birget ("Eva" - Sable)
1 x female born (cesarean section) on
October 26, 2020.
"Eva" was Ultrasound scanned Monday, October 26, 2020, to determine puppy heartbeats and numbers. in her Litter, which sadly, was only two (2). However, the male could not be saved and the female is doing very well.
This puppy's pedigree name will VonBIOS Gretel.
Gretel is now 21 days old as at 16/11/2020. Gretel is in the "Back of House" care from her grandmother, Tessie, who will be 12 years old late in December 2020, as per the Youtube video below.
The Stud Dog is Dasty vom Ludwigseck BH AD, an "All Black" imported from Germany, October 2019. Eva's sire is the imported, Dark Red Sable, Bruno vom Wallensener Hof IPO2. Apart from the drive attributes of both imported dogs, their respective obedience and protection Dasty's all-black coat has darkened the coat.
Eva rejected her sole surviving puppy (female)., which means, hand raising her. So far, this puppy is getting fed on-demand.
VonBIOS Gretel, is now receiving "Back of House" care from her Grandmother, "Tessie". This relieves me of the task of stimulating Gretel's nether region to produce "1's and 2's". "Tessie" is providing parental stimulation as well puppy do's and don't's in behaviour.

Planned Puppy Litters
VonBIOS is waiting for three (3) VonBIOS females waiting for their "season" commencement in late 2020 or early 2021.
VonBIOS Dagomar - Season starts
("Une") All Black)
"Une's" season commencement is expected before uncertain, but swabbed twice weekly, so we don't miss it. She had her Hip/Elbow Dysplasia X-Ray Assessment in early August 2020, so we would expect her next season to be before February 2021, remembering, they have a 6 months cycle. Don't be surprised if her season starts earlier.
VonBIOS Clara - Season starts February 2021
("Onyx") All Black)
Onyx is based in Perth/Kalgoorlie (WA). She had a season during the Covid-19 pandemic and the West Australia border closure. Her next season is expected around March 2021, however, "Onyx" has her season every 4 to 5 months, which may affect her fertility levels and our Reproductive Vet may introduce procedures to "reset" her season regulatory to every 6 months.
VonBIOS Adala ("Ava")
Next season now expected April 2021.
Ava's October season was missed by her owners. A regular swab test initiated to detect season start. We are also taking the opportunity for some "dietary improvements" for Ava.
Having three (3) VonBIOS females coming into season in late 2020's to early 2021's requires scheduling to manage the impending litters.
Considering the demand for a quality working line German Shepherd Dog puppies during 2020, as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, VonBIOS has had to bring on suitable (subject to health and behavioural assessment) available VonBIOS females.
Normally, female canines have two (2) seasons within a twelve (12) months period; it can be more often and it can even be less. The following might assist you with your planning.
VonBIOS will be drawing on females from our Litters "C", and "D" through the 2020 / 2021 seasons.

WORKING LINE GERMAN SHEPHERD DOGS
Von BIOS is a niche Breeder and Trainer of working line German Shepherd Dogs (Deutscher Schäferhund), based near Melbourne, Australia. We just love these magnificent canines for their superior intelligence, high prey drive, bodily strength, strong character and friendly disposition, along with their devotion to their "Pack and Pack Leaders",
ARE YOU A "PACK LEADER"?
It is our mission and indeed, reward in life, to be able to facilitate the creation of exceptional litters of German Shepherd Dog puppies. We provide every opportunity for each Puppy to be enhanced and placed in readiness for adoption and placement with their new "Pack and Pack Leaders" (families and teams). We are seeking persons who are committed to developing these magnificent canines into functional, responsive and manageable members of their group.
