Apache von Rokanhaus

Active Pet Home/ Middleboro MA
Owner, Caitlin, writes: "Just wanted to let you know she is doing great! It feels like she has been here for years already. She fits right in with the whole family. She is very protective of Maddy and loves her so much! She kisses Maddy all the time lets Maddy hug her, its so cute! The other night Mike & Maddy were playing around being silly, dancing and Apache was a little weirded out and got right in between them to make sure she was ok. When Maddy cries in the morning Apache is the first one up she goes right over to the video monitor (that you bought us and we love) and puts her nose right up to it. I can't thank you enough for thinking of us when looking for a home for Apache. She came at such a good time, we all get outside more because of her throwing the ball around and running, Maddy loves it Apache loves it and Diesel even likes to watch!"

A husband and wife own it and they are so impressed with Ryder. He is a very smart dog and learns quickly. He loves going to the shop with Teddy and loves the people that come in an out during the day. He also loves kids and is very gentle with them."

I probably sound like a broken record, but Kandi she is such a wonderful dog. She just gets more intelligent and in tune with life as she gets going. The kids play with her alot and realize she is something special. Matthew calls her his "princess"!! I have been taking her for rides sometimes and she is so protective when anyone walks up to the truck. People are petrified of her. If a child goes up, however, she is no problem at all. She jumps right in the backseat and lays her head down on one of the kids.""

Dover von Rokanhaus

Active Pet Home/Pittsfield MA
Owner, David, writes: " She is doing great. She LOVES her family especially her kids! If the kids are at the top of the junglegym (or in a place not accessable) she will scream, bark and do anything (FEARLESS!!!) to get to them. Does not get the concept of getting a running start to try to go up the slide - rather tries to JUMP OVER the slide (a little pathetic. . . ). Her WORKING lines come out in that she will try and try and try - to the point where she could hurt herself if not told to stop. She is fetching like a pro! Loves the ball and Frisbee (yes, four feet on the ground - we do not let her jump to catch the Frisbee - LOL). She is swimming great and enjoys it."

F-Ilsa von Rokanhaus

Active Pet Home/ CT

Franke von Rokanhaus aka "Kaia"

Agility/ CT
Owner, Joyce, writes: "By the way, I've been meaning to say that I am extremely impressed with Kaia. Not only is she gorgeous and has the most adorable prance when she walks, but her temperament is just amazing. In my training career, I have come across a lot of poorly bred German shepherds, especially lately, with some serious behavioral and aggression issues. It is such a relief to know that there are still responsible breeders of this wonderful breed out there who are producing some really amazing dogs."

Franziska von Rokanhaus aka "Shasta"

Active Pet Home/ Eagle Bridge NY
Owner, Lori, writes: "Ken and I took her to beginner obedience training classes this summer in Bennington, Vt and she was titled the "Valedogtorian" of her class. She was in a class size of 12+ (all breeds and ages). She took to her dog crate well and goes in and out during the day. She has settled in well on my homestead and adopted my two cats. I am happy to say that she is a great watch dog too out here in the country. She loves to go for rides and walk out back in the trails in the woods as well as in town. Ken and I have had many compliments on her "beauty" when we have had her out and about. She loves to play with her toys and run with my sister and moms German Shepherds. She has a nice temperament and always has her nose to the ground sniffing. Ken says she would have made a great K-9 drug dog."

Competitive Agility, Obedience, and Tracking / Garrett IN
See video of Jester! here as he just learned the weave poles...he is not even at full throttle yet!
Owner, Lisa, writes: "Jester was a hit at a large meet the breeds tonight. Jester was the only GSD there. So I take him out in the center of the ring as they describe the GSD temperament, activity level, grooming needs etc, I was putting Jester thru all of his tricks. His sit, down, shake, beg, spin right, spin left, touches etc. He got a standing ovation (the only one by the way) as we were leaving the ring then once the "show and tell" part was over we were mobbed by the audience wanting to know how old he was and how smart and handsome he was. It was very cool. A glimpse, I hope, of what is yet to come."

Gino von Rokanhaus aka "Sami-G"

Active Pet/Obedience/Agility/ Orrington ME
Owner, Debbie, writes: "i decided to skip puppy class, because like you i really didn't want Sami playing with other dogs. he really has learned his Obedience commands quick. so, i called the head trainer and asked if i could get him into a regular Obedience class. they usually only take 6 months and up in this class, but because he is so smart and focused they let me in. well, i gotta tell ya, the trainer was VERY impressed with him. he is so good and attentive its scarey. better than the older dogs there. i do alot of fun training here at home. i will walk backwards fast call him to me and have him sit. he does it so effortlessly, he is there on a dime. sits up and looks me right in the eye. it is so dam cute! it doesn't seem to matter whats going on around him, he should have a sign on him "will wrk for food" because he'll do anything for it! he is alot of fun, and i can't wait to start agility with him!"

Greta von Rokanhaus aka "Kyra"

Obedience/ Schutzhund/ VA Beach VA
Owner, Sarah, writes: "I took her to the vet for her first check-up and she was in great health. The vet staff fell in love with her. She is starting to get into the biting stage and loves to attack your feet...typical puppy. I can tell already that she is very smart and confident and is not afraid of anything. She also has a great nose, she is always sniffing around for things. Kyra is a great dog, and I can tell that she will really excel at obedience and Schutzhund work. Thank you very much for such a wonderful dog!"

Gavin von Rokanhaus

Competitive Agility/ Telford PA
Owner, Diane, writes: "Just wanted you to know Gavin is growing like a little weed!! He's doing great and went along to agility camp with Emma and I and had a blast, he loves playing in the water and grabbing the hose. Will send a picture when he stays still enough to get a nice one. LOL"

Active Pet Home/ Ansonia CT

Owner, Nick, writes: "Kandi everything is going great! we met with Gus last night to go over the training , on that note. I have never had a dog so willing to learn. He is wonderful!!! As fearless as he is it also seems to be that he is a mommas boy. He loves sitting in Renee's lap. It s cute now but a year from now we will have a 90lb lap dog."

Anytime I see anything out of place there they are together trying to hide the evidence. They are so funny together."

Active Pet Home/ Williamstown MA

Ikon von Rokanhaus

Schutzhund/ NY
Owners, Kim and Roy, write: "I just wanted to drop you a line on how Kon is doing these days. He is a fabulous little dog. You did a wonderful job bringing him up til Roy took him.

Ike von Rokanhaus
Active Pet Home/ Agility/ White Plains NY

Indigo Sky von Rokanhaus

Active Pet Home/ Ocean Port NJ
Owners, Nick and Gretchen, write: "I had no idea what to expect when we brought Darla home in July. She only had a few accidents inside and was house trained within a few days! We enrolled her in puppy kindergarten and puppy intermediate and the trainers could not believe how quickly she learned basic commands and socialized with the other puppies. After the holidays we start basic obedience. She loves to play soccer outside and dribbles like a pro. She has great drive and is very active. She likes her soccer ball more than any treat. Each morning, before going outside, she must wake everyone in the house up with dozens of kisses. When we take her for walks, countless people tell us how beautiful she is and complement us on how well behaved she is. Darla is definitely our third child and we love her. Thank you so much for bringing her into our family."

Iska von Rokanhaus
Agility/ Ludlow MA

Owner, Don, writes: "What a great little dog you bred! We've been taking her out to different places to meet people and dogs almost every day. (maybe missed 3 or 4 days since we've had her) She loves all the attention and is completely fearless when something new comes up. She knows: sit, stand, down, come, drop it, jump, search, and stay; not perfectly but really very good. Enough to impress anyone who sees her work. Puppy class starts next week and I'm sure it will be a snap for her. We're still working on heel. She's not bad on the leash but is easily distracted. No accidents in the house for the last 2 weeks and the biting is much, much less. Today we'll take her to the lake. She likes the water but I don't know how she'll do in deeper water. I can't imagine a better pup. With the good genes from Hanuta and Hawk and the good start you gave her, she is worth every cent."

Juno von Rokanhaus
Agility/ Redding CT

Jemma von Rokanhaus
Schutzhund/ NJ

Owner, Oley, writes: "Emma is incredible! Thanks for all you nurturing and training to date. The "Hurry Up" command works like a charm! So, does the empty box tip. Unbeliveable what this little pup is doing within 48 hrs in her new home. She knows her name, comes when called (most of the time), plays fetch, sits on command, sits to have her leash put on, sits and waits for the humans to go out the door first.... What can I say, I'm blown away at how quickly she learns. She is a devil girl too, but hey, she is a pup and I like her drive. So did Shelly. John & I went to visit Shelly Leibowitz yesterday. He wanted to know when we had the dog imported from Germany. Shelly was impressed!!! He commented on Emma's head, her build, her confidence and poise. Shelly also knew a lot of the dogs in her Pedigree lineage. We we are going to start working with him next week. Emma is doing things that need to be re-directed.... hahahaha, those calf nip hurt!!!"
