Nope...but I am sure other forum posters will have a better feel for them. I am slightly put off by the big push for a GSD for family protection, but I suppose maybe that is their niche. It wasn't the reason we got our dog, although, I will admit, she does make an imposing figure to anyone approaching our front door. (Really, it's the extra floofies around her ears that make her appear so large. )

The pups look beautiful, as do the adults. I do know there is significantly more to the purchase than that.

You will get great advice from members on here. Welcome aboard!!

Thanks Yeah, first post and all, haha. Looks are important, but I'm also going to visit them and find the one that fits my personality. And yeah, I suppose that's their thing, even if I don't train for schutzhund.

One thing that is really bothering me is the fact that they sell their pups at 2 different prices. One with health guarantee and one without.

I think its just an option if you really want a dog but aren't man enough to fork up the extra 200$

I just think that a breeder should be backing their dogs, no matter how much you pay for them

It looks like they have some really nice dogs. If I were interested, I'd go check them out.

Some of their claims are kind of funny though. "USA #1 Solid Black German Shepherds since 1976"...what does that mean and who gives out that award, lol!

"Grunenfeld has been recognized both Nationally and Internationally for having the finest in Solid Blacks."

FWIW I have no experience with the kennel. I thought there was a member here with two dogs from there and did herding?
