Belgian Malinois pup

This is Quake, our home protection Malinois.  She is always looking out for us!

RINGO  (and he is a Star!)


In 2000 I began working with Gary LaFollette at LaFollette Training Center and Drugbeat in Missouri.  There I became a certified agent for Drugbeat and training went to a new and very exciting level - building detection dogs for the police. Today I am a certifying agent with Drugbeat based in northern Florida.




​Our new Belgian Malinois stud

​​​​​1958 was the year I was first introduced to dog training when I volunteered to decoy in the air force.  At that time my dog of choice was the German Shepherd, but since then I have expanded my preferences to include the  Belgian Malinois, and recently the German Malinois cross. All three of these breeds, with proper training, will make exceptional working dogs  and/or dedicated pets who will protect the family with their lives

  No matter where we are, our goal has always been the same;  we have always concentrated on producing solid, smart dogs that will take training for any discipline.  We take pride in our dogs  and pups and pledge to produce the best!

OUR BEGINNING:  Over 60 years ago...          


Training dogs has taken me around the world where many of the dogs I have trained are working today in police departments, protecting homes, and making outstanding family pets.

German Shepherd pup

Our kennel, CR SHEPHERDS has moved several times  since we have moved both in and out of the country.  We have settled  in Homosassa, FL and continue to breed and train excellent high pedigree German Shepherds and Belgian Malinois.  The only change is that we have added German Malinois to our breeding program. 

 My wife and I moved to Costa Rica where the highest demand was for personal and home protection dogs.  There we began to train dogs that had the courage to defend, becoming an immediate protection and alarm system for their owners
