About Us


The Simanovich team strives to persistently promote personal and family safety. We invest our time and energy in working German Shepherd Dogs that have originated from the top bloodlines in Germany and the Czech Republic. We offer the very best protection dogs available for individuals and families who are seeking a dog for protection.

Simanovich only trains to the highest international standards, for real life scenarios and day to day family dynamics. We’re very selective with the placement of our protection dogs, to make certain that each person receives the canine best suited for their needs. We will not just sell you any dog, we will learn about your particular needs, and match those up with the best dog available.

Our philosophy is simple: We deliver top trained, four legged peace of mind for security, by being the very best at what we do.
