Welcome to Greenleaf Kennels!
We have been breeding, raising and showing quality German Shepherd dogs for over 16 years. We breed for proper conformation, working ability, sound temperaments, solid and balanced structure, beauty and companionship. We are constantly striving to improve the breed!
We are dedicated and passionate about the betterment of German Shepherd dogs We put a great deal of thought and care into selecting our breedings and do so only when we can meet or exceed our expectations and AKC standards.
All our dogs are OFA certified for hips and elbows. They possess physical and mental soundness, excellent body structure and health. They have an innate intelligence and great working ability as well as show ring beauty. As German Shepherds are already naturally protective of family, home and property, we find that breeding for proper temperaments is of primary importance. Our dogs, first and foremost are loving family pets and companions and then show dogs.
All our shepherds are given personal attention and have daily access to wide open spaces for exercise and playtime. Our kennel is located on 2.5 acres in the beautiful White Mountains of northeastern Arizona (approximately 3 hours from Phoenix and 3-1/2 hours from Albuquerque, New Mexico). We frequently take all our dogs for conditioning in the ponderosa pine forests that surround our home and expose them to a variety of environments, wildlife and stimulating smells, sights and sounds.
As part of our kennel facilities, we provide a dog boarding service with personalized attention and care to a small number of dogs. Our facility includes a large climate controlled kennel building, extra large exercise yard, several spacious fenced indoor/outdoor dog runs and services which include daily walks, conditioning and basic grooming. We offer a stress free and relaxed environment for your dogs and ours!
