About Our Breeder

Audrey is not just your average dog trainer. She is highly educated in all things K9. She has obtained 2 Masters Degrees from London Hanover University College of Zoological Studies with a concentration in canine behavior from a neurological perspective. This allows her to learn that what we "see" as the outward behavior and how it begins on a cellular level in brain.

Truly understanding at an in-depth level of the animal that many "Trainers" do not understand or have any desire to understand what creates behavior and where it begins in the brain.

Knowledge is power and with this knowledge Audrey Estep carefully crafts training plans developed for each puppy in training rather the a cookie cutter approach to all dogs.  My services are designed with you and your pet in mind, and I believe in working as much with you as with your pet.

Happy Healthy Bloodlines

Great genetics make for a confident well rounded puppy that is suitable for companion, sport, IPO, or police K9. However, not all great quality breeding stock are titled European German Shepherd dogs.

I'm selecting dogs with a history of producing consistent sound and healthy offspring. Not all dogs in my program have an OFA score on hips and elbows. My dogs generally have a European score on hips and elbows since they are tested prior to import.
Furever Friends
My puppy program revolves around creating the most sound animal for whatever your purpose is from birth.

Puppies are exposed to a number of environmental obstacles, smells, sounds and sights to ensure confidence and sociability. 
Our Puppies
All puppies are vaccinated, treated for internal and external parasites, micro chipped and come with AKC papers to register you puppy.

**AKC papers are often delayed due to parents being imported into the USA.

    "We had lost our German Shepherd in March after 12 years. I contacted North Mountain Kennels about getting a puppy and Audrey spent over an hour on the phone with me. We were able to talk to her about her dogs and find out which litter would be the best for our family. We felt so comfortable and reassured. We met our Kobe after a few months and left him for turn key puppy training. Getting a young puppy who already knew sit, down, crate, and to ring the bells to go outside was invaluable. We are so happy with our new puppy and Audrey. She is amazing and always makes sure you have everything you need. She is always available for question and helpful tips!  I would definitely recommend getting a puppy from North Mountain Kennels."

    "After contacting several breeders in Virginia, we could not find any that would adequately answer our questions about owning a GSD. We finally came across North Mountain Kennels' website and contacted Audrey. She immediately responded to us with a lengthy informative email which made us feel very confident in choosing her as our breeder.

    We've had our puppy for five weeks now and we are so pleased with how healthy and intelligent she is turning out to be. She has done so well out in public and meeting new people. We are so glad to have chosen North Mountain Kennels."

    "I purchased a high quality, beautiful loyal dog as promised. Just make sure you’re up to meeting the needs of these dogs. They are energetic, very intelligent dogs and need mental and physical stimulation.  Which means they need structured time with you every day. It is a commitment. But one well worth it. Audrey will support you all of the way. I asked her questions constantly throughout the training process and she was always quick to respond and her advice was good."
