I got my German Shepherd puppy at 7 weeks old from Westside Kennels out of Moose Jaw . Stephanie and co. were great to work with. It was obvious the first day home that my pup had been worked with a lot!!! First night at my home the little fellow slept on a pillow beside my bed, I was so surprised that he did not whine at all. My husband and I had a great sleep with the pup only waking up twice to go outside. My pup is now 3 months old and has learned good behaviour very quickly, he is good on the leash, sits, downs, and is learning to stay. It only seems to take a couple of tries and he knows what is expected of him. He rides in the car no problem, I even take him in my kayak and in the paddle boat. He is brave and curious lol. I get a lot of comments about how calm and relaxed he is . If your reading this you are probably looking into getting a Shepherd, if that’s the case then look no further ,Westside German Shepherds are beautiful, intelligent, quick to learn dogs. You won’t go wrong getting a puppy from them.

I reached out to Stephanie after the loss of both of my precious dogs, within two months of each other. I finally felt ready to have another dog and was excited to fulfill my dream of having a German Shepherd dog.
Stephanie is totally committed to her passion of breeding German Shepherds.
She is caring and compassionate but still a complete professional, ensuring that each of her puppies finds the best possible home.
Stephanie and I exchanged a few emails and she answered any question I had.
I was so excited when the breeding was announced and felt like a proud new parent when the litter was born.
There aren’t enough words to describe how wonderful my Charlotte Rose is.. she amazes, impresses and makes me fall more in love with her every day. She is everything that a German Shepherd dog should be, and credit for this goes to Stephanie Doney and her excellent breeding program at Westside.

A word about Stephanie Doney and Westside German Shepherds…
We met our incredible little bundle of GSD (Dante) at The Regina International Airport. The time and effort Stephanie put into facilitating our puppy pickup was SO far beyond what we would ever have expected or asked for, that it will forever be part of Dante’s history and remain a story to be told by Cindy and me.
In the process of choosing a breeder for our new family member, it literally took one email to realize that Steph was special. She spent hours with me exploring our decision to acquire a pup, life with dogs, and many other topics, to be truthful.
Over the several months leading up to delivery day I came to learn of the seemingly countless hours that Stephanie and her family put into ensuring that when we arrived to pick up our Little Man, he was well-adjusted and as socialized and happy as a little 7 ½ week marvel can be. I mean that sincerely and we are grateful. There could be no better start to our long relationship with our new companion.
As for the pup, himself? Well….I believe he is now fully crate trained, 9 of 10 on the potty training scale, comes when called, and sits/stays to receive his little merit treats. He’s 9 weeks old tomorrow. Another GSD Superhero in the making.
Thank you Stephanie Doney, your whole family and Westside German Shepherds. God Bless.
