TITLED IN SHOW & SPORT
FCI & UKC REGISTERED
Fireside Fernweh is a small versatility-focused White Swiss Shepherd breeding program located in Central Illinois. Dogs are our lifestyle: training, sport trials, shows, hiking, playtime, biking - you name it, we do it with our dogs. If we aren't actively doing something with our dogs, you can typically find us researching pedigrees, editing photos...of dogs, or reading about dog behavior/genetics/sports/conformation/etc. In other words, we are extremely passionate about White Swiss Shepherds, breeding, training, and competing.
Our dogs are carefully selected after extensive pedigree research in order to minimize the risk of producing health and temperament issues. Our process includes health testing and utilizing only dogs which pass their tests, extensively training and competing with our dogs, complete transparency with our puppy buyers, and dedicating hours of our time to socializing and desensitizing our puppies before they leave. If you have researched thoroughly, you will find that, in this way, not all breeders are created equal. We encourage you to utilize the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) database to verify health results - each of our dogs' registered names are on their pages, and their results are all publicly recorded by OFA. There you will find results for dogs' hips, elbows, cardiac, dentition, and more - of course, all results are also readily available on our website.
Fireside Fernweh puppies come with a three-year genetic health warranty, Embark DNA results, FCI & UKC registration, and more. Our 2023 pricing starts at $4500, including a $500 deposit required to hold your puppy. The pricing also includes an up to $500 reimbursement for any official (preliminary does not qualify for the rebate) health testing completed.
Given that we are a small kennel, we only have a few litters a year. We pour our heart and soul into raising the very best puppies.
