While the contraction of "polar" and "bear" or "Polarbear" is the name of our kennel, there is no such breed as a "Polarbear Dog". Our dogs are merely a color in the German Shepherd breed. All of our dogs are registered with the American Kennel Club (AKC) and we comply with the recommendations of the registry including health testing of the parents of all of their puppies. As you can probably tell, our values and integrity, are extremely important to us and the foundation for all we do. We pay no attention to what other breeders do, we are quite unique in the dog world. There is one and only one "Polarbear" kennel and nobody else can duplicate the success of our dogs. You will not find a "contact us" link on our website, read on and you will understand why……
The Polarbear Philosophy
Polarbear White Shepherd’s reputation is built upon a philosophy pioneered in 1999 when we developed our unique brand of dog. Simply put, we made health, temperament, and genetic diversity, our number one priority. We decided early on that this was more important than the short-sighted aims of show breeders whose sole focus is appearance. As a result of our strategy or “scientific approach”, the longevity and popularity of our dogs is undisputed. We pioneered a "no cage - no kennel" philosophy in which dogs are not confined and instead are raised on a beautiful acreage with plenty of room and attention. Since our dogs roam free, they are happier and healthier, than kenneled dogs, which enables us to make wise decisions regarding which dogs to breed as our foundation stock. We also developed a method of testing dogs for intelligence and temperament which has an accuracy rate of 90% over their lifetime. To everyone's surprise, we have fewer than six adult dogs at all times and we produce a limited number of puppies each year. We are vigilant about maintaining the integrity of our dogs which is why we protect our brand and none of our dogs are sold for breeding purposes. Like to learn more about us?

What makes Polarbears so different from any other dog?
Polarbears are natural empaths which makes them highly intuitive and the closest to a "human with fur" that you will ever find in a dog. Polarbears have amazing vocabularies and only have to be told once what you want them to do. These are the most intelligent dogs you will ever meet. They just understand. The temperaments of our dogs make them the "total package" in a dog. Most dogs, in the shepherd breeds, tend to be aloof and wary of strangers. Our dogs, on the other hand, are friendly and sociable, as long as they are well socialized as puppies. They make ideal guard dogs and will not hesitate to put their lives on the line should the situation warrant it. Their calm temperament makes them ideal indoor dogs and the playful, retrieval abilities make them entertaining as outdoor companions. One other distinction of a Polarbear Dog? You guessed it... they love water... just like their namesake, the Polar Bear! And is there any better dog to watch the children? No. Polarbears are completely trustworthy, making them ideal "nannies" to even the smallest child.
The appearance of our dogs is striking. They have beautiful, superior quality, short, arctic-white coats, and dark pigmented noses and are ideal indoor dogs because they shed less than their longer coat cousins. They are extra-large in size. Our males average between 100-120#, and females between 70-90#. So if you want that beautiful, large, indoor dog, that sheds less than their longer coat cousins and do well in warmer weather... its a Polarbear dog!
If you've never purchased a dog online before, remember, "the most important decision in purchasing a dog is purchasing the right dog." In this day and age, you do not need to find one locally. You may, however, need to do your homework, especially if you found a new breeder. Many of these first-time breeders try to replicate our philosophy. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, or so they say. Don't be fooled, however, there is only one Polarbear Dog. Likewise, don't be fooled by "the intellectuals" or breeders who rely upon blue ribbon trophies, hips and elbow evaluations, and special certificates to sell their dogs. The only proof you need from us is the nearly twenty year history we have of producing White German Shepherd dogs with superior health and longevity.
