Vylano was established 2015 as hobby breeder of show and working type German Shepherd Dogs.
We are not a commercial dog breeding facility. All of our dogs live in the home and are our pets first and foremost.
We occasionally have a litter combining some of the best available show & working lines in order to breed a GSD that conforms to the standard, is fit for function and is sound in body and mind. Bringing beauty and brains together!
Each litter is carefully planned and checked by the breed health co-ordinator prior to mating and our litters are lavishly reared in the home with no expense spared. We follow the puppy culture guide which is an intensive socialisation & habituation programme which we start as soon as the puppies are born right through until they leave us for their new homes. Puppies are introduced to a huge range of different sounds and places as well as being introduced to our other animals; sheep, ducks, chickens and cats. We start early training with toileting, resource guarding, clicker training and recall.
We believe health is paramount when breeding so all of our dogs are health tested above and beyond the KC recommendations. As a minimum all of our breeding dogs are hip scored, elbow scored, DNA tested for DM/PD/MRD1 and from 2021 they will now be checked for LUW (transitional L7 vertebrae).
If you have any questions about our dogs or the breed in general please do not hesitate to get in touch.
