King Shepherd puppies are not only bred for their size, but more importantly their temperament and hardiness. Breeders are urged to keep their breeding programs focused on their best dogs, with the goal of producing an animal that is an improvement on the previous generation. All puppies are guaranteed and breeders place puppies into their new homes with spay/neuter agreements or contracts.
Puppies are the future of the breed and every King Shepherd puppy is guaranteed to be healthy physically and mentally . Puppies come in several colors such as black and tan, black and red, black and cream, various shades of sable and all black. There is also two coat types available, long and smooth. Puppy prices typically range from $1,850.00 to over $3,000.00, depending on the particular litter.

Chateau De Chief is an American King Shepherd Club (AKSC) Recommended Breeder.
*NOTICE - The AKSC considers the King Shepherd breed to be a work in progress (in development for improvement by the AKSC Recommended Breeders). The AKSC will not condone or be responsible for puppies/dogs acquired from individuals who have been dismissed (removed, discharged) from all AKSC privileges and who additionally mislead by stating "...by choice, we are not a member of nor a breeder recognized by the AKSC..."
A sound breeding program should be developed with mentors; those who have years of experience and extensive knowledge on the particular breed, behind them. A breeding program SHOULD NOT begin with minimal knowledge on the dogs, their background, and their conformation. Breeding is definitely not a "sport" that should be based on a whim.
Chateau De Chief cautions potential owners of King Shepherds from purchasing Kings from "so-called breeders" who
- are not American King Shepherd Club (AKSC) Recommended Breeders or AKSC Recommended Member Breeders
- are unethical breeders
- do not support the King Shepherd Breed or the American King Shepherd Club
- breed inferior specimens of the breed, i.e. faulty structure, head types and temperaments
- do not breed to improve the King Shepherd, breed just for profit
- breed two King Shepherds together just because they have access to two King Shepherds with no regard to type, temperament, soundness and size

- The Penn-Hip method is used to evaluate the hips of all current and potential breeding stock, as well as preliminary x-raying prior to breeding. Only those dogs with an acceptable rating are used in the breeding program. Breeders also stress the importance of a good diet, the correct vitamins and appropriate exercise to further insure the proper growth and the overall soundness of the developing puppy.
- Sound temperaments are the essence of the King Breed. King Shepherd breeders believe that the perfect dog must possess an impeccable temperament. In order to fulfill its' duties to be the ultimate family companion and protector, the King Shepherd puppy must foremost come form stable parents, and also be intelligent, fearless, inquisitive and willing to please. With these traits, the puppy will develop into a cherished member of any household.
- Last but not least is size. Although larger size is desirable, this factor should not take away from the overall soundness and functionality of the animal. The average height for a full grown male King Shepherd is 30", with a weight of 140lbs. Females are slightly smaller in height and weight.
