I have purchased 4 puppies from Elaine at Five Peaks in the last year. All are from different litters. I"ve had Cahn for over a year and is now 17mo. He is a male out of Tyson vom Kottersbusch and Jana vom Sensei. An awesome dog. Lila, who I picked out at 5 weeks and is now an 11mo old. She's my favorite, but I don't let the others know. She is out of Vito and Biggi . Tazzie a who is now 5mos old, a big and beautiful female import out of Esko and Greta from Wolpertinger Wald Kennels. I will be adding one more to this harem, a female who is for now "orange girl" a 5wk now out of Roy and Quiara. I will be picking her up at the end of this month. Four completely different breedings and I couldn't be happier. I am 60 years young and have had German Shepherds my entire life. These are the dogs I always dreamed of owning. They are healthy, beautiful, correct in confirmation and temperment.

Elaine also found the perfect dog for my sister who never owned a dog in her life. They are inseparable.

Honestly, I highly, highly recommend Five Peaks German Shepherds, you can't go wrong. When I was there at the beginning of the year they were doing some renovations on the kennel, but aside from a lot going on, I found nothing wrong with the facility.

They currently have some puppies available for February form "Maestro and Margit" (Listed in their website). I liked the description of Maestro and Margit and they have a healthy record. However, I would like to here from you.

1.Does anybody know this breeder?
2.Other breeders in the area you recommend?
3.What about the puppies currently available (From Maestro and Margit)
4.They seem overprice

Thank you, your comments are all welcome.
Hi C.P.
I have never been to 5 peak German Shepherd. But looked at the site the prices look to be about right.

Hey there, I am not sure if you are still using this forum, but I am about to purchase a pup from Elaine and just thought I would ask how yours are doing? I am new to picking a breeder but everyone I speak to seems to have been very happy with her dogs. Anyway, I just thought I would ask.

My experience with Elaine is a little different from others. i have also talked to a few who have had the same experience with her using high pressure sales tactics that if you do not buy the pup she will not be able to pay here kids doctors bills. So I walked away and looked for someone else. I do know of a couple west german showline breeders that are small and produce very nice dogs. If you are interested.

alteregoa, this thread is 2 years old, so the information may be very out-of-date. You might want to start a new thread to see if anyone has more current info on the breeder that you're inquiring about. Welcome to the forum and good luck on selecting the breeder for your new puppy!

Szariksdad seems to have a weird, personal vendetta against Elaine at Five Peaks. I've worked closely with her for several years and have never, ever witnessed these "high pressure sales tactics". Furthermore, she doesn't even have kids. All I have witnessed from Elaine is honesty.... Probably to a fault. She cares deeply for every puppy and dog at her facility. She desires to keep contact with people who buy from her for the duration of the puppy's life.
