My name is Rocky. I used to really not like cats. I mean, you know, they just move different. I was used to seeing dogs move. That’s the language I spoke, dog. But cats... it’s not just that they run and I want to chase them. I mean that wasn’t even how I first met the cat. I was just walking through the house and this head 🐱 pops out from nowhere. It (the cat) would just stare at me. Completely still 🐈 . Kinda like just looking into my soul. Then bam 💥... out of no where that terrible Hsssst before the claw came slapping across my face and I watched that thing levitate on top of the fridge. Hey, can you blame me! We had a rough start.
But luckily my owner kept after me. And I’m sorry but feeding me treats to stop my barking wasn’t going to work. I realized my behavior had consequences. I got to where I was more worried about mom than the cat. Sometimes love can be tough. But In the end, I’m glad it all worked out... Hey, cats really aren’t that bad now that I understand them a bit more. - Rocky
-Okay, I took some liberties with that picture and story, but I’ve seen it play out often.
Thanks for the photo #teamrocky #rrk9innewmexico ... See MoreSee Less
I grew up with shepherds in the country and one very tough, bad assed cat - all of our dogs accepted the cat except one that we raised from a puppy - she never accepted it -
I know there are many that need to read this. Even if they don’t become snuggle buddies... they will learn to co-exist if you make it clear they are going to..
All of my dogs have had cats as siblings. The introduction was well monitored and to date we've had a harmonious household.
Aww, maybe not bff’s, but friendly at least. 👍
What a beautiful picture!! Bosco loves his cat friend too (Duchess) but it took a few weeks to transition him into it. It’s an interesting friendship! I love this!! 😻
Rocky is one of my favorite stories! Love this dog! 💜🎉
I know someone needing some tough love in my house.
Thank you for the encouragement!
Cori Owens see we’ll be just fine

It’s more than just “getting a puppy.” I often turn people away when I get a call and quickly realize they are just out to find the first available or best bargain. I often get asked “do you have any puppies” or the first question is about price. I usually answer that “We don’t currently have any available to go home.” The next question is usually the dreaded “Do you know where I can get one.”
You know... because they are all the same 🙄🤣
It’s funny as most never bother to ask any other questions. And while I wouldn’t lie, the part that usually is conveniently left out is that the pups are near graduating and just are not quite ready for their homes yet, but before getting to any of that the call has ended and I’m fine with that.... because I’m looking for owners like these. Owners like Dennis.
That’s why we have applications. And that’s why just because you want one doesn’t mean you are ready for the responsibility and dedication it takes to raise a German Shepherd puppy.
So while there are many people looking. I’m looking for this. Looking for owners that get it.
Thank you to all of my RRK9 families that remain dedicated while following our RRK9 Puppy Management Guide and continue to push forward with training.
What does all that have to do with this video you might be asking yourself. I found myself with tears in my eyes as I was filming and watching an owner that started with very little training experience go out and absolutely crush it 👊 In that moment I was not only proud of #teamdakotamcmullen, but also delighted to be a spectator watching our program in action.
You sir, represent everything good about our program. Thank you. ... See MoreSee Less
That’s incredible! And what a gorgeous dog on top of that.
wow. They are doing great
Sam, I totally agree - I see young couples getting puppies because they are cute or they saw one they likes or something without researching the breed - When the puppy which buys largely ingrained is about 1 year old, the couple has a baby - The dog misbehaves and eventually winds up rehomed or in a shelter - It drives me crazy - But thank you for posting - My Red Rock Haddie is awesome !
Great to see, a handler with his dog communicating so well. Great video.
Red Rock K9 German Shepherds: Dennis and his girls searched a long time and did an amazing amount of research to find you and Dakota as well. ❤️ This video is so special ❤️ Thank you for sharing! Dakota is a member of a very special family ❤️ Taylor and Kamber❤️
It’s a life long commitment. You bring a GSD home and she is family not a pet. Family. Love my Red Rock K9 Thea Queen
We cannot wait to apply to get our pup!
Keep up the good work. One day I will have a Red Rock too.
Wow! Impressive! Good job! ❤️👍
