Genuine, honest, forthcoming…
Sam is one of the human beings I would ever want to deal with when selecting a German Shepherd pup! He was honest and forthcoming with me throughout my entire experience and always available for questions. After this entire experience I consider Sam a friend and the pup is the best I could have ever imagined to receive; I have owned three other German Shepherds and this one has an excellent temperament, low anxiety, and is extremely intelligent; I have received nothing but, compliments from friends, family, veterinarian, and other German Shepherd owners.

We were completely blown away…Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Reliability, Responsiveness, Value
We Finally welcomed our new German Shepherd (Kobe) into our lives after a long military career. We waited for the right time to get our first dog because we didn’t want to risk taking him from base to base around the world. We sought out Red Rock K-9 after hearing glowing reviews about them and boy were we overly impressed. This company is second to none and they produce the most amazing dogs. We were completely blown away with the love and care they provide to all their dogs throughout the process and even more impressed with the attention to detail and communication they provided us during the process. You can imagine how excited we were to get our GSD and we were so thankful that RRK9 always provided update photos and videos to us! They kept up communication throughout the process (and still do) and they provided invaluable education on the do’s/don’ts and a bunch of recommendations to boot. They gave us options of different things to purchase (we bought it all) and things to stay away from. Overall we are VERY happy with the addition of Kobe to our family. He listens well and was able to flawlessly adapt my commands after learning them in his stage 1 training. If you are looking for a QUALITY German Shepherd, I implore you to check out Red Rock K-9. I promise you won’t be sorry and you will receive the highest caliber of an AKC registered pup!

Sam and his family go above and beyond…
We have only had Remi a week, but I can’t tell you how completely pleased our family is with our decision to get her from Sam and Red Rock K9. to make sure you get your puppy in the best physical and socialized state possible. Sam has a tremendous system in place to support the new owners starting with his 53 page manual and being accessible by email or text to answer any questions or concerns that may come up. All throughout the process you can tell that Sam and family truly care and are passionate about breeding and preparing the dog and their future owners for success. Perhaps one of the best complements Sam and Red Rock K9 received about Remi came from our vet on her puppy wellness exam. Our vet said “ Ive seen a lot of German Shepherd puppies over the years and so many are skittish and nervous at this stage, but Remi is very calm, confident and so well behaved”. I know we have a long road ahead of us with training, but we are confident that with Red Rock K9’s resources and continued support, Remi will grow to be an incredible addition to our family.

Sam and the Red Rock K9 team have been a breath of fresh air…
Sam and the Red Rock K9 team have been a breath of fresh air – dedicated, insightful, patient and professional. After having a couple of GSDs and seeing the potential of the breed, we wanted to find a breeder/trainer who would not only be very intentional in setting their puppies up for success, but also PARTNER with us AFTER we brought our puppy home. While we loved the rescued GSDs we had had before, we were all too familiar with the effects of poor genetics and inadequate early socialization and training. Thus, it was important to us that we be equipped to mold our puppy’s confidence and social behaviors well. Furthermore, we wanted to find someone who could provide breed specific insights, recognizing that raising and training a working-line GSD can, at times, call for strategies that are different from what might be used with a Golden Retriever or a Yorkie.
The Red Rock K9 Puppy Program was exactly the strong foundation that we needed. In addition to understanding a range of basic commands, our pup was crate trained, practically house-broken and sleeping through the night most nights as soon as we got her (issues only happened when WE screwed up!). When we had problems introducing our pup to our older dog the day we brought her home, Sam was able to offer multiple tactics (not just one way!) to work through the situation.
Sam’s assistance didn’t stop there. Despite not being able to coach in-person due to distance, Sam facilitated a remote, interactive and content-rich learning program that has educated and equipped us to continue building on the suite of behaviors taught to the puppies while they were in Sam’s care. When we struggle, he has been a phone call away (we try not to abuse the privilege). He is a wealth of information that has helped us navigate the not-always-intuitive world of dog psychology. Because of his guidance, I am confident that our pup will be able to be a part of our lives in a way that our previous dogs could not be.

It’s like a prep school to condition puppies for that life long relationship we want in the first placePositive: Professionalism, Reliability, Responsiveness
I am a first time owner of a GSD puppy. However, what we needed was an exceptional puppy – house and crate trained – due to a challenging work schedule even when working from home. Red Rock K9 raises exceptional puppies. More than that, they will prep you to be a better than average GSD owner if you let them. First off, they are selective with the dogs, so they start out with superb genes. Second, Sam puts tremendous amount of effort and love to get his puppies ready for their new families. The foundation training is beyond house and crate (although that alone is priceless, if you don’t have the time). It’s like a prep school to condition puppies for that life long relationship we want in the first place. Third, they don’t just let you sink or swim. Sam will tell you exactly what you need before you bring the puppy home (don’t waste money rushing to buy things on your own like me). And, will equip you with his training guide based on his experience with this specific breed, not some generic advice. And, support you with classes and just in time advice. Quality, Professionalism, Responsiveness – that’s Red Rock K9.

So worth the money!Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Reliability, Responsiveness, Value
I’ve been so impressed.
They have a super clean facility and have been very helpful during the first weeks. They offered additional help trainings our pup. I’m not a trainer but I really wanted a good dog for my family that includes small children and it’s been really helpful to have guidance from professional.
Max was pretty much house trained when we picked him up and they already have him imprint trained so you can start from a great foundation.
So worth the money!

Set us up for success on our exciting journeyRed Rock K9 and Sam have been a pleasure to work with! Their extensive imprint training with our puppy, Zula, has set us up for success on our exciting journey of owning a German Shepherd. Sam goes above and beyond what would be expected out of a breeder; he is willing to take calls and provides extensive feedback and advice to make new puppy ownership as smooth as possible. We love our new puppy, and we highly recommend Red Rock K9, if you are considering purchasing a German Shepherd. -Taylor Tribble

…my 4th Red Rock K9
This is my 4th Red Rock K9 so that alone should indicate how I feel about this breeder. They are honest, trustworthy and reliable and I would not purchase a German Shepherd from any other breeder. I’ve had my share of bad experiences with other breeders. You simply cannot put a high enough value on the hours they put into their puppies. Teaching basic manners, basic obedience, crate training, potty training, socialization especially with children which is so important. All of their puppies have great temperments and are wonderful working dogs. I have an 11 month old that is competing in agility and already has her first two titles and a 3 month old that will follow in her footsteps. You will never go wrong if you purchase a dog from Red Rock K9. I am so blessed to be a part of this family.

Without a doubt, a world-class facility that did not disappoint.”
There are rare occasions where words fail to express the degree of excellence that an organization achieves. RRK9 is, without a doubt, a world-class facility that did not disappoint. The entire process is indicative of a breeder and training facility that will not accept anything short of the highest standard- from the interview process to puppy pick-up, the experience is first class. Rest assured that these animals are world-class; temperament, intelligence, and conformation are absolutely second to none. We are grateful to Sam and Linsey for allowing us to be a part of the RRK9 family, and we absolutely give RRK9 our highest recommendation.
