About Me


 My Story

 Prairieside German Shepherds is owned and operated by myself Kristin Sapinski. I was born and raised in Portage la Prairie and although I never started my boarding facility or breeding/showing Shepherds until 2003, I have always loved all kinds of animals. As a kid growing up on a farm we always had cats and dogs; I even had a pet racoon and numerous rabbits my dad would bring home from the fields. Every stray dog always seemed to find there way to our house where of course they had to stay!


I have always had a true passion for German Shepherds so in 2003 I finally purchased my very own who was known as Can.Ch Legendary Emma vom Canisphere.

 Here at Prairieside I strive to breed sound minds and temperaments as well as correct structure. All of our dogs used in our breeding program have certified hips/elbows, as well we keep all of our dogs up to date on all the required vaccinations. It is very important that they all recieve the utmost care so they are in the best health and condition possible.

 We breed Top Quality German Shepherds for Personal/Family Companions as well as Show/Breeding Prospects. We are a smaller kennel so we normally have 2 to 3 litters per year. All of our puppies are family raised with myself and two children. They all receive lots of socialization and individual interaction.

 Prairieside puppies all come with a lifetime health guarantee including (hips & elbows). The fee for your puppy includes their 1 set of required vaccinations, deworming program, health check by certified veterinarian, CKC registration papers and micro-chipping.

 Each year I grow more and more all in thanks for the continued support of family, friends and other fellow breeders whom i have been lucky enough to work with and have had the privilege of adding some great foundation dogs to my show/breeding program. I believe in working my hardest to make sure all of our puppies and older dogs go to the best suitable homes. I want to make sure that all my clients get the right dog for them. We offer breeder support at all times, and will help you every step of the way, no matter what the situation may be. I look forward to the many years to come and the many new people I will meet along the way…. If you are considering a GSD puppy or possibly an older GSD please feel free to contact myself at anytime. We would love to welcome you to the Prairieside German Shepherd Family.…………

Sincerely, Kristin Sapinski
