JD, Todd and I can’t thank you enough for giving us such an amazing kid. You have to experience this line of dog before you can truly express how amazing they are. I can’t quite imagine our lives before Saxon. Sounds silly but it’s true. He and Molly are so much a part of our everyday lives. Todd has desired this type of dog for a long time. We are so blessed to have Saxon and blessed that our paths met. Thank you again for all you do. God bless you and ALL your pups!Kim M

Hi JD!

Monty is great! He is a real gem of a dog: sweet, quirky, smart, willing, and handsome. He and our old girl Emily get along like rotten peas in a pod. They are always up to somthing. She seems happier to have him around. We had him examined by a vet the Tuesday after we picked him up and he received a clean bill of health. We’ve been socializing him and he is making friends out and about. He loves riding in the car and his kiddie pool. He doesn’t hesitate to plunge his entire head under the water! We are super pleased with the little guy.

Add BADASS to the list of everything Yeti is. He just treed a BEAR!!
I was in the barn working on a rehab horse and he was laying by me. He took out of here like he set the world on fire. He’s got this bear trees not 60 yd from my barn. I’m trying to get to my house to get my good camera. He is so proud of himself. Scared shit out of me I couldn’t call him off of it. I worry about zero with this kid by my side! Thank you is never enough for him



Thank you so very much for using your expertise to select our new family member. She is a perfect fit. Even though we have only had her a few days now, she has acclimated extremely well, has potty trained already to her “spot” outside (she even barked last night to wake us to take her to the door, did hen business and came in straight after with no wandering and went back to sleep!), and has taken to all four of our children with a passion. She has already taken to our “school” schedule and makes the rounds to the bedrooms to help wake them. She is phenomenal! She learns extremely fast, maintains training (what little she has received) and enjoys whatever seems to satisfy out “pack”. It has been an absoluted pleasure to work with you through this entire process and we look forward to working with you in the future, as well as, keeping you informed with her growth and development. Thank you again for everything. – Korri Hendrickson – Deputy Sheriff, Greene County Tn.

I want to thank you so very much for the two most perfect additions to my life. I adore them both, they are amazingly smart and no better picks could you have possibly been made, Im so very thankful!!!

Hi JD,
I just wanted to update you on the puppy we purchased from you back in December. We named him Odin, and we just finished out first puppy obedience class and we are registered for the next. Our instructor is AKC certified, so we will work with her until he earns his Canine Good Citizen and then move on from there. At his 4 month vet check-up he weighed 52 lbs, and growing everyday. He is very good with everyone and everything, except the cats, but we are working on that and his is getting better everyday. I don’t have a really good picture right now, but when I do I will post it for all to see. So very happy with him…thanks for everything.

JD, this dog is amazing. I took Loki out to work with the PD canines the other night. They were all shaking their heads saying “you have your hands full”. Loki likes that stuff ALOT! I will shoot some pics next time I go out. He was going beserk….

DDR Long Haired German Shepherd Hi JD,

I wanted to touch base and let you know that my boy is doing excellent, he had his first bath here today and he did really good! I love everything about him, I have been working on building his confidence, he knows sit, plats, high five, and up. He is so smart and gentle! He sleeps under my bed, loves the snow (which is good, we just 6 inches and expected to get another 6-12). I got his papers and got him registered today. Hope you had a great evening and I will send pics tomorrow!

I bought a black female from you about a year and a half ago. I just wanted you to know, she is doing fabulous. We have moved back to Alabama and she is almost completely free here. We have a large yard and we leave to door open and she has complete freedom to roam and play with the neighbor dogs.

She has grown up wonderfully and is smart as a whip. Almost to smart hahah. Even if i close the door she can open it. She has also developed a passion for attacking bumblebees. It is quite funny watching her try to snap them out of the air. Anyways, just wanted to let you know she is doing great. Thank you so much for this lovely companion.
