Thank you for the interest in our dogs! When contacting about any of our available puppies, please fill out a Questionnaire.

Belgian Sheepdog Puppy Questionnaire

​​The Belgian Sheepdog suffers from a few health issues such as hip and elbow dysplasia, progressive retinal atrophy (PRA), epilepsy, thyroid issues, and stomach/gastric cancer. Because of this, Lightning Belgians thoroughly screens and study the bloodlines of all dogs used in the breeding program.

As a general whole, we sell three "types" of dogs:

  • Pet: A dog that does not meet the structural or aesthetic criteria as laid forth by the American Kennel Club Belgian Sheepdog standard. There is nothing inherently wrong with the dog. It just may have a disqualifying fault (such as too much white on chest) or a fault severe enough to prevent it from finishing in the show ring. The dog is still capable of being an active happy member of the family.
  • Show prospect: These are dogs 10 weeks to 12 months old that at the time of sale do not have any disqualifying or serious faults that would prevent them from finishing. They are not deemed show quality because so much changes between 10 weeks and 12 months. It is acknowledged by us that these puppies may not turn out as hoped.
  • Performance: A dog that exhibits good drives in various areas and would be happiest in a home that was willing to train it in various venues of sport (agility, tracking, herding, etc). 


All of the dogs we produce are guaranteed to be more than suitable as happy, healthy, friendly, family pets, and all dogs, regardless of what they were initially sold for, should be willing and able to be trained in various performance events.


  • Between 7-8 weeks the puppies will be temperament tested using the PAT Temperament Test.
  • Between 9-10 weeks the puppies will have structural evaluations done, to determine show prospects.


Before you receive your puppy, it will be:

  • Wormed (2, 4,6,8, and 10 weeks)
  • Vaccinated (First puppy shot)
  • Bathed (blow dried, nails trimmed regularly)
  • Vet checked for any congenital defects
  • Micro chipped (HomeAgain)

All the proper paperwork documenting the vaccination and worming schedule will be provided to you.


Your puppy will be started in:

  • Housebreaking (may still have accidents)
  • Leash walking
  • Crate training
  • Socialization

In order to qualify for a Lightning Belgian Sheepdog puppy, we require the following:

  • A completed puppy questionnaire form (provided above)
  • A fenced yard or other suitable outdoor containment
  • A non-refundable deposit of $200 with the balance of the puppy due before it heads to its new home.
  • The understanding that breeding these dogs is the result of intense study of bloodlines and health on our part, and we do not sell them to the first person with money in their hand.

We will NOT sell to:

  • Puppy brokers
  • Laboratories
  • Large scale kennels
  • We also do not ship our puppies. 


We want our animals to be affordable for the average buyer. Our projected prices are $1200-1300. We charge the same price for each and every puppy, regardless of sex or quality (show vs. pet). The reason we do this is that we believe regardless of the potential of the dog, all dogs and buyers are equal. We also do not find it fair that a buyer preparing to purchase a show prospect puppy should pay $300-500 more and be out that money in the event that the puppy does not turn out. Discounted prices are a possibility for juniors handlers.

The puppies we breed are very important to us throughout their lives. We are always here to help our puppy buyers, you become part of our dog family. If for any reason you are not able to keep your dog (young or old), we would expect you to contact us ASAP so we can find him/her a good home.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to share your information with us. Your information helps us to find the best puppy fit for your family. 


PLEASE do your homework!!

Research and meet the breed before deciding on buying a Belgian!

The breeding between Dex and Gem is planned for 2020. This will be Gem's final litter. I look for this litter to be very promising in all venues, including being excellent family companions.
