Red Rock K9 Advantage
The German Shepherd originated in 1899 with the help of Max von Stephanitz, founder of this great breed. He stated that “The Breeder can indeed lay the foundations of a good and serviceable dog but the Trainer must see to it that he brings to their highest possible development, the physical and mental foundations already laid and thus his it the more grateful task.”
Our Trained German Shepherd Puppies Are Built on a Solid Foundation
Red Rock K9 strives to be the best German Shepherd Breeder in Oklahoma. We believe raising German Shepherds is more than just a commitment of genetics, but also ensuring that each and every puppy and owner receives the best training and education available. We believe an extra couple weeks with us is well worth the wait for you in the long run. We invest hundreds of hours into our puppies and are very selective in the placement of their future homes. Each and every one of our puppies will complete and graduate from our 6 week imprint training program. We have developed a style and system for training an entire litter of puppies that is unparalleled and not attempted by others. We have gained the attention and respect from other well known dog trainers who seek out our puppies and training program to begin their own training journey in sport. While it’s an enormous undertaking, we enjoy what we do and are dedicated to ensuring that each and every puppy graduates our program before beginning their journey.
We provide a handbook with all of the essential tips for bringing home and continuing the training of a Red Rock K9 puppy. Our 6 month checkpoint training system is also offered to all puppy purchasers to ensure that the puppies remain on the right track with their training and mental development. Red Rock K9 is dedicated to making sure that our dogs and owners are set up to succeed from the first day. We believe that the foundation that we help prepare for these puppies is the key ingredient to a high success rate with owners.
What is Imprint Training?
Imprint training is the act of teaching puppies the fundamental commands and wanted behaviors during a critical period in the puppy’s growth and development when they are most impressionable. This critical learning period is usually labeled during the first 16 weeks of life. Puppies can learn more in this period than they can in a lifetime not only in training but when you take into consideration social skills with litter mates and the mother. The imprinting period can have enormous impact on a puppy’s personality and can set the stage for future good behavior.
Imprint Commands and Skills
We begin progressively training each command in a series of steps in order to achieve accurate and stable responses from the puppy. The totality of what we achieve by graduation can not be limited to a set number of commands. The focus and work ethic we build in the puppy along the way is paramount to future training practices. Our core commands include: Sit, Down, Stay, Come, Leave-it, Wait, Watch-me (focus), walking on leash, and intro to heel. Puppies are crate trained and potty trained at our location which makes the transition to your home quick and easy. We work on bite inhibition and discourage other unwanted behaviors. Puppies are introduced to slippery floors, new objects, and have regular socialization young kids and new friendly faces. Rather than puppies leaving at 6 weeks old our puppies have extended social time with litter mates which studies have proven to be essential to healthy social development.
Why is Early Imprint Training so Important?
We set the owners and the puppy up for success by conditioning the basic commands with no ambiguity in meaning and teach the puppy quickly and correctly from the very beginning. Let us start your puppy out on the right paw. Our program has lasting results beyond the basic commands. Red Rock K9 puppies love to work for their new owners. When the training is continued the outcome has exponential positive results. The training goes far beyond the commands as it teaches the puppy important focus and attention skills while also teaching the puppy to be able to handle several commands, one after the other, while remaining engaged. The training that we establish can easily be continued with every member of the family. We even have German Shepherd enthusiast sport trainers come to us for our nationally known imprint trained German Shepherd puppies.
Price or Investment?
We are well aware that price is one of the first things that is viewed when “shopping” for a puppy. While I realize that there are financial considerations to be made when making a major purchase; I would urge the quick scanning internet shopper to beware of jumping on the first available and lowest price puppy. Responsible breeders spend a large amount of time and money ensuring the breeding of healthy litters. What you don’t want to do is find a “bargain” deal and then end up paying thousands in veterinary bills to rectify or fix a problem.
Our puppies also come with a health guarantee! The investment in an exceptionally trained German Shepherd is one that will last for over a decade, offering security to the family, companionship, and endless loyalty. The price of a Trained Red Rock K9 German Shepherd Puppy is currently $4,500.00
Owning a German Shepherd is a commitment for life. We take careful consideration when placing pups with the right family. To show our commitment and support, we offer exclusive training and boarding access to our clients. All of our puppy purchasers receive 25% off future training and boarding for the life of the dog! We hope you will visit us and see the Red Rock K9 Advantage for yourself.
Max von Stephanitz realized the importance of hard work and commitment in building this great breed. Red Rock K9 German Shepherds is committed to excellence in both the breeding and training of the greatest breed of dog in the world.
