testimonials & Happy Families

At Trusted Guardian German Shepherds, we’ve been in your shoes. We know that purchasing a puppy is a big decision. To help you feel comfortable working with us, we wanted to share some of the many happy families that have purchased AKC German Shepherd puppies from us as well as what they have to say about our puppies, our process and our facility.


Puppy: Thunder

“I wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed visiting your facility and meeting your sweet family (both canine and human). You have the most awesome kennel and in such a picturesque setting - it was truly a magical time for us. We talked about it all the way home.”

— Kay S., Jacksonville, FL


Puppy: Daytona

“Beautiful, intelligent, healthy German Shepherd pup is now living with us. The breeders are wonderful and welcoming to their home. We were able to meet our new puppy's parents and see how they were raised. Their home and farm are beautiful and immaculate. So happy we found Trusted Guardian German Shepherds!”

— Gary and Carla O., Palm Coast, FL


Puppy: Paris

“We were very happy with the level of professionalism, detail and thoroughness throughout the entire process of working with Trusted Guardian. We couldn’t be happier with the quality and temperament of the puppy we chose. I looked up more than one GSD breeder in Florida and was very happy to find Trusted Guardian German Shepherds. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a quality German Shepherd dog with a straight back (thank you!) and working bloodlines. Our dog is shaping up to be a fantastic family pet and companion to our three children.”

— Kurt M., Saint Augustine, FL


Puppy: Ninja

“Pat and I want to thank you for all that you have done to make this a very simple process. We also want to say how great it is to have seen how well you care for your animals. Very professional and proper. We truly believe we made a very wise choice in selecting one of your puppies.”

— George T., Orlando, FL


Puppy: Charlotte

“This is a wonderful facility. For anyone wondering, it is NOT a puppy mill. The kennel is extremely clean. The puppies are played with by all ages of people every day. The farm is beautiful and fun to visit. It’s the ideal setting for puppies to get their start in life! So happy with my puppy … she’s my new best friend!”

— June U., Winter Park, FL


Puppy: Licorice

“We have a beautiful German Shepherd from Trusted Guardian! She is so loving and a quick learner. So happy we got a German Shepherd from them! They are very professional and it's obvious they love their dogs. They have an awesome set-up for breeding and raising their puppies too! Our puppy, Nova, is such a sweet dog and she fits in our family perfectly. She loves playing with the kids and is so patient with them. She thinks she is another one of my kids. Anytime I sit in the floor, she tries to sit in my lap even though she is rapidly outgrowing it! “

— Melinda B., Forest City, NC


Puppy: Vegas

“Zora (Vegas) is doing amazing so far here at home. She’s healthy and our vet is in love with her. She’s calm much of the time and is doing great with crate training. I can’t thank you and your family enough for helping us prepare her and our home. You helped make this so much easier for us and less intimidating. Thank you for our newest addition to our family!”

— Kaiyla H., St. Augustine, FL

Puppy: Kingston

“If you ever find yourself looking for a German Shepard pup and you are confused about where to get one, look no further than the breeders at Trusted Guardian German Shepherds! They were nothing but kind and extremely professional about helping us find our beautiful baby boy! He is smart, healthy, and an absolute sweetheart! We are truly blessed to have been able to find you and Kingston, who is now named Rufus!”

— Jacob S., Cheshire, MA


Puppy: Dancer

“My wife and I got our first ever dog from Trusted Guardian German Shepherds. Being that we we're first time dog owners, it was so nice to have a breeder that was responsive, patient and informative. Their breeding area is very clean and professional. Our pup is beautiful, happy, and healthy, and we couldn't be more pleased!”

— Kyle T., Orlando, FL

We purchased Daytona a few days ago. She is so intelligent. Karen and John (and their children) are excellent breeders who take good care of their dogs and pups. Our new eight-week-old pup knows her name already and a few other commands. We just love her to pieces. Thank you, Karen and John. She is such a happy girl.
— Gary and Carla O., Palm Coast, FL
Greta (formerly Paris) is a phenomenal guard dog already. I had my three-year-old at the neighborhood park today with Greta when a stranger, adult man, walked into the covered pavilion near us to look at his phone. Greta had her hair up and was staring at him, watching/tracking his every move. As soon as my daughter walked into the pavilion near the man, Greta started barking at him. She’s everything I ever wanted in a family guard dog. Greta doesn’t miss a thing! I’ve had lots of dogs since my childhood German Shepherd (including a Rottweiler) and other than that GSD, none were as attentive to their surroundings as Greta is. It’s fantastic.
