New Skete accepts applications for puppies twice a year.
November 1st and June 1st.
We accept a limited number of applications. The application will remain online until that number is acquired.
This happens quickly; apply early.
The application must be completed and submitted online.
We are a small monastery and operate a small breeding program. Mother Nature can be fickle and we never know how many puppies will be born.
The wait time is usually a year and a half, but it can be in excess of two years.
At present, the cost for a New Skete German shepherd puppy is between $4,000 and $4,500. This is subject to change without notice.
New Skete puppies are socialized. They are handled from an early age and introduced to different people and situations. More about socializing can be found in our book “The Art of Raising Your Puppy”. They are not house (potty) trained.
