Well, her dogs are lovely. I would want to see some proof of health testing, namely hips.

I see the dogs have CGC and many are therapy dogs. They do train but do not compete and that is fine for them. She does explain away competition trained behaviors as not reliable on the street and that may be her opinion. I disagree with it.

I think if you are looking for a family companion and the dogs do have health testing she would be okay. However, she is asking some pretty steep prices for her dogs. $2500 for a puppy from unproven parents is more than I would pay.

I have personally seen her dogs, the puppies, and their behavior. The parents are proven to be obedient, loyal, and protective. They are a registered therapy dog and a medical alert service dog. Dogs who work in the real world. We should not forget that we show our dogs in the ring to prove that our dogs may be able to work in the real world. Show dogs are often not tested for the demands of the real world. A dog that actually works in the world is at the highest level for the breed. Am I wrong? Keeping our dogs solely in the ring honestly proves nothing about a dogs ability to work all day next to it's handler. A medical alert dog is a highly trained dog who possess and uses all of the most prized traits we seek in our German Shepherds.

As far as price, you couldn't purchase any equivalent puppy for anything close to $2,500. An excellent diet and medical testing is very expensive. Breeding inexpensive dogs, without consideration for their health (diet) and medical testing has created a crises in the German Shepherd breed. Her commitment to her dogs mental and physical health in unparalleled. Yet, I understand that breeders may feel threatened by an innovative, boutique breeder with elevated standards. I honestly feel you should meet the people and see the dogs before you post negative comments. We should all work together to support our chosen breed not knock each other down.

You just insulted quite a few breeders on this board, and then state that we shouldn't knock each other down.

How ironic.

Default Tre Good Shepherd owner

I have owned four German Shepherds and recently purchased Ava from Tre Good German Shepherds. My last female was bred in Germany and had excellent parents with titles galore and price to match those titles. She was very smart and intense. When she passed away from cancer in Oct 2014 it was devastating for the whole family. I spent many weeks roaming thru sites searching for our next family pet.
When I found Tre Good the search was over. I did see Ava when she was four weeks old along with some of her brothers. We spent time together along with Christine and her husband. At that point I happily handed over a deposit on Ava.
I had daily communications with Christine with updates on Ava. Below is the post that I put on Tre Goods website.

Ava is now in her new home in Tempe and doing great. She is a spectacular example of a well bred German Shepherd. She is a very nice combination of dominance, confidence and affection and beauty thrown in. I could not be happier! Christine has been so wonderful with all of her knowledge. From the first contact she has provided timely, accurate and valuable information. Thank you so much Christine and gang for providing me with such a great family member. Thanks....Kent

I personally really liked what she said on her "A step above; young trained family companions" page. Her dogs look lovely and I like the reasons she gave for why she breeds GSD's. So far I like her but I would need to do more research if I intended to buy one of her dogs.
