We have several breeds available. The following are the most common breeds we have on hand. Other breeds maybe available at different times or per request.
GENETICS AND SOURCING
VDK sources only the most confident and driven genetic platforms to build the most capable and reliable canines. Most of our competitor’s source dogs that are only presented to them; or from a limited supply of large vendors/subcontractors. While we are in accordance with sourcing national and internationally, we believe a solid supply of canines is built on the backs of many, rather than a few. Our current sourcing model is one built of solid trust worthy relationships with many small and private breeders both nationally and internationally. If a problem should arise with a certain genetic pool or breeder, we are only out a relatively small number of dogs, rather than a large number of dogs. While working with many small breeders and kennel facilities, we are sourcing dogs from different genetic pools. This allows for a more reliable and sustainable product.
When purchasing canines we firmly believe the best dogs are the ones with the best initial genetic package. While dogs can be trained through certain environmental or social stressors, ultimately the dog will fail if it is not genetically confident. Physiological, Psychological and Sociological are all genetic behavioral traits we test when looking at canines.

The term "Green Dog" has been around for decades. Due to the vast time frame, the definition for Green Dog is broad, with the modern connotation being closer to a finished dog.
Here at VDK, the definition of a Green Dog parallels what is expected of our dogs at the Federal level.
