About I-Guard International

Top German Shepherd Breeder

I-Guard International is a premier German shepherd breeder based in Spokane Valley, Washington. Whether you’re looking for a great family pet, service dog, or personal protection dog, I-Guard offers the right dog for you and your family, as well as professional dog training classes for all breeds.

Since 1999, I-Guard has specialized in breeding German shepherds from prestigious bloodlines and expertly matching German shepherd puppies and families together based on the needs, personalities, and lifestyles of both the dog and the family. We pride ourselves on finding a perfect match.

Unlike puppy mills seeking only profit, we look at every German shepherd puppy as a special member of our family—and a future member of yours. That’s why every puppy is born in a family environment where they receive the stimulation and love essential to building healthy temperaments. It’s why our dogs don’t require expensive aggression or behavior modification training later in life. It’s also why we’re very selective about where our dogs go. Like parents seeking partners for their kids, we make sure it’s a good match before we give our dogs to a new family and welcome you into ours.

I-Guard’s private dog training and specialized board and training programs are headed by Master Trainer Nick Lungu, founder of I-Guard International. Nick focuses on behavior modification techniques and advanced obedience training to ensure each dog and family is safe, comfortable, and happy.

See why I-Guard German shepherds are one of the most sought after breeds in and out of the U.S.

The I-Guard Difference

I-Guard International operates under three core values:

Passionate & Inspiring

We are passionate about our business and know our passion can be passed along through our German shepherds to their new families, inspiring them to live great lives together.

Build a Community

We want to create a family, not just a customer list. We work to create customers for life and train dogs that can work in service fields and contribute to the communities they live in.

Drive Change

German shepherds have been bred dating back to 1899, but that doesn’t mean we have to stay with the status quo. I-Guard strives to make waves in the German shepherd community while building upon years of processes.


Our mission is to provide the healthiest, best looking and best-trained German shepherd puppies in the world, backed by our unmatched dog training services for all breeds. At I-Guard, we want our clients to experience the fullest satisfaction possible during the German shepherd adoption process and throughout their relationship of owning an I-Guard German shepherd.
