Default Advise for a Breeder in Colorado

Hello,

We live in Colorado and we are looking to add a German Shepherd to our family. After, some research we decided for a German Shepherd. We know nothing about breeders, we read the tips about how to know if you are dealing with a good breeder.

I visited 5 peak German Shepherd (here in Colorado). Their website is Denver CO German Shepherds | Dog Breeders | German Shepherd Puppies. The breeder seems to pass the test of what to look for in a Breeder. I was not impressed with their facilities.

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.
C.P.

Hi Carlos —

Like you I recently went through the process of trying to find a breeder in Colorado. The ones that continually crop up are Five Peaks GSD, Rocky Mountain German Shepherds, and Adelhaus.

After researching for quite some time, I went with Five Peaks GSD and we have a deposit for a puppy from Roy & Olivia's litter due at the end of January. I've had really good interactions with Elaine from Five Peaks — she's extremely knowledgable and passionate about her dogs. Just today I called with a quick question and we ended up discussing vaccination recommendations and food for 45 minutes. What really sold us was how she focused on finding a litter that was most likely to fit our lifestyle and goals.

Everyone needs to make their own decision on this — it's a pretty personal choice — but I've been very happy with her to date and I know at least one other person on this board who has a puppy from her.

In the end, I don't think you can wrong with any of the three breeders I mentioned.

Good luck.
Kevin

Looks like nice showline dogs. The price seems a bit high to me, but show lines tend to be more than working line ( not sure why).
Why didn't you like the facility?

If I did not like a facility I would keep looking.

It is good to know that at least one more person here is dealing with the same breeder.

Any more comments about the puppies available?

Thanks

I got my (15 month old) pup from Rocky Mountain German Shepherds. I am completely satisfied with him, he has been a great pup so far. When we were looking I checked out Five Peaks GSD and I spoke with Adelhaus. I ultimately went with RMGS's because I liked Jayne and I like the parents of my pup.
I think ultimately you need to visit the breeder, take a look at the parents and decide what will be a good fit for you and your family.

It also depends on whether or not you would like to participate in any sports like, schutzhund or agility. If you decide that you want to work your dog in a particular sport then I would visit some clubs and talk to the people there about particular breeders.
Where in Colorado are you located? Good luck in your search

I absolutely agree with Kevin. Elaine is a great resource. She is very helpful. I have not receive any negative feedback from anyone dealing with Five Peak German Shepherd. It is always good to search on the web for any potential negative aspect. The result of my search was ZERO negative complains or reviews. I'm confident now that this is a good option.

Thank you for your comments! I'm going to to move forward with one of their beautiful puppies. Their dogs are awesome!

I was just fooling around looking for podcasts the other night and found this audio episode by The Dog Doctor: The Dog Doctor - German Shepards 01/16 by Dr. Robert Forto PhD | Blog Talk Radio

(Skip to around the 6 minute mark to get past all the intro chit chat.)

The hosts interview Jayne from Rocky Mountain German Shepherds. From what I hear, she sounds like she's got a good thing going over there. Of course, I'm a newbie to the GSD world though.
