About Summerview German Shepherds

Summerview German Shepherds - Acton, Ontario

Jim and Rita Robinson have been happily married for 54 years, and have 6 grown children, resulting in 10 grandchildren which they love and adore, as much as their dogs. Jim and Rita are both from large families and always had dogs while living at home. They bought their first female German Shepherd, Blaze, in 1999, 22 years ago from Grandview Kennels. They decided that they loved the breed and that we wanted to get more involved in lineage of the German Shepherd breed, but wanted to keep it a small business. Summerview got it’s name from one female that Jim and Rita adored Summer.

It’s with Great honor that we announce that after 22 years our day to day operations will be handed over to our Son-in-law Robin Heffernan effective late October 2021. We will still be in the background assisting in anyway we can.

After 27 Years as a Financial Services Manager Robin retired in September 2020.He has been hands on with us for many years and comes with a lot of knowledge and experience in breeding quality lines.  


 Summerview German Shepherds has Produced Canadian Champions, Summerview’s Wylde River Eden, and Summerview’s Bary.







We are strong believers that puppies need to be socialized at an early age, and by raising the puppies in our home… we can give them the love and attention they need… With our children all grown and not at home… we feel our dogs have again filled our lives…

Our Philosophy

Producing 2-3 GSD German Shepherd litters a year, and home raising the German Shepherd puppies, rather then in a kennel environment would hopefully strengthen the German Shepherd's breed standards in ensuring better socialized German Shepherd dogs. This philosophy is reflected in their German Shepherd puppies, as they are very loving, caring, and well behaved dogs. Summerview's Rita and Jim Robinson are active members in the C.K.C., as reputable, reliable, and passionate German Shepherd breeders in Ontario Canada.
