One to one interview, learning about us, learning about them their breeding history and their lines, education on the breed and tips coming from many years of having GSD as part of their family.

I get compliments everywhere I go and even the trainers at GSD clubs mention how beautiful he is. He has had zero medical problems and his hips are A+. Roche's would be the only place I'd go for another if I decided. For a fair fee they even delivered my boy to my home from WI to IL.For any new owners. GSD's are A LOT of work and dedication. They will change your lifestyle and you will need to adapt to it BUT it is the most rewarding thing in the world.Response from the ownerJohn, thank you for reaching out to us 💓 we are so happy to see this and please remember we are here if you need anything 💓 holly N.holly N. ★★★★★ Ronda was great to work withResponse from the ownerThank you so much Holly 💓 I’m excited for your family BOZOKnowsBeSTBOZOKnowsBeST ★★★★☆ Nathan H.Nathan H. ★★★★★ Jeff and Rhonda are everything that you could ask for in a breeder, and more. What stands out the most, is the passion they operate with. They truly care, and it shows every step of the way! Jeff and Rhonda went above and beyond in ensuring that we have all of the tools and knowledge it takes to successfully introduce a new German Shepherd puppy into our home.

Good luck with your sweet little boy and please keep in touchJeff & Rhonda Roche Candy W.Candy W. ★★★★★ Response from the owner💞 Margaret O.Margaret O. ★★★★★ Purchased a sassy, healthy, intelligent, good natured female puppy. I could not be happier. A mentally healthy dog is so important. I recommend Roche to everyoneResponse from the ownerThank you so much Margaret 💞 Katelyn DKatelyn D ★★★★★ If you are looking for GSDs with good temperaments, excellent health, and high intelligence, then I would definitely recommend Roche’s German Shepherds.My husband and I had been researching breeders for some years now and finally decided on Roche’s due to their breeding methods and health standards. Our little guy came to us in an unexpected unique way. After a previous family was unable to take him, Jeff called us and asked if we were interested in coming out to meet the puppy that same day! Even though this was all last minute, Roche’s was so flexible with meeting us and allowing us to see the puppy before we made a decision.From the moment we were called to the moment we brought our little puppy home Roche’s was nothing but delightful to work with! They are willing to sit and talk through any questions you have, they give you a lot of information about the breed, and what to expect when you bring your puppy home. They also make sure you have all the vet information you need for your puppy’s first vet appointment. Another big plus for us was seeing that the kennels were clean and all the dogs that we saw looked very healthy.You can tell Jeff and Rhonda put a lot of care and effort into breeding these amazing GSDs. Our puppy was the sweetest when he first met us! He ran up to us, showered us in puppy kisses, and was just overall a happy chill little dude. He just had his first vet appointment and was given a clean bill of health! He is sweet, gentle, and such a fast learner! I have never met any dog with this level of intelligence and at such a young age! We have only had him for 6 days and he has settled in so quick and has already learned basic commands.When we are ready to purchase a second puppy, we will definitely be coming back to Roche’s.Thank you so much Jeff and Rhonda for our new little addition to our family!Response from the ownerKatlyn, thank you so much 💓 we’re so happy things are going so well 💓 best wishes with your sweetheart and please stay in touch April E.April E. ★★★★★ After putting our 11year old GSD boy down, we decided it was time to give a new pup a great life but started by doing a lot of research on breeders and decided to go with the Roches. When we first went to meet with them and take a peek at Adrian and Barus litter, we liked that they had all the dogs in the home and the home was clean!!! Adrian had a calm temperament as well as the rest of the dogs. We picked up our girl Roxy at the end of June and she’s now 6 months. She’s only had two accidents in the house ever. Caught on extremely quick w the training and is extremely good with our young grandchildren. Our autistic 3yo grandson and his mom just moved in a us and she’s embraced them as her own. We definitely chose the right breeders. Good communication and great canine genetics are obvious! Oh and I’m biased but i think we chose the pretties pup of the litter.Response from the ownerThank you so much April for the kind words. Rhonda and I try very hard to make things special for our puppy families. Pride and integrity means everything to us. mike Y.mike Y. ★★★★★ Jeff and rhonda are great. stand behind there dogs. if ever a problem they are there to solve it will not leave you out there. Rhonda takes care of pupies like her own kids! they get their own area. We have 3 of their dogs one male that is the puppy of untox and panja. he is the spitting image of his dady and wants to be a shutzhund but training takes more time then I have now. H gets to play fight likes that and playing with his ball. he is my big 90lbs baby who thinks he is still a lap dog. could not ask for a better dog. the 2 girls are also great!Response from the ownerThank you Mike 🙂 all your babies are gorgeous and blessed to have you all 💓Rhonda Travis W.Travis W. ★★★★★ Can’t begin to express what a great experience we had getting our newest family member from Jeff and Rhonda…Every part of the process was beyond exceptional. Rhonda was spectacular to work with, detailed and friendly. The parents to our puppy Percy & Elza are beautiful dogs, “Kevin” our puppy is by far the smartest puppy we’ve had, super sociable so you know he came from a family oriented breeder. Just can’t express how pleased we are with him and would recommend the Roches to anyone looking for a smart, beautiful quality dogResponse from the ownerTravis, Kevin is a lucky boy to have such a huge pack to join 💙 thank you for all the sweet pictures 💙 Jason K.Jason K. ★★★★★ My wife and I purchased our first shepherd from Roche’s German Shepherds back in the Fall of 2021 and have been so happy with her.

The best people to work with.Response from the ownerThank you Jack 💙 Karina B.Karina B. ★★★★★ Response from the ownerThank you karina 💓 Kassie D.Kassie D. ★★★★★ I cannot find the perfect words to describe our experience with Rhonda. The first time we talked on the phone, our conversation lasted 40 minutes. We certainly formed a friendship! She listened to our story and knew she had the perfect pup for us. Rhonda was abundantly helpful throughout the process. We picked up our puppy on my son’s birthday and Rhonda had surprises for each one of our children. How incredibly sweet of her!! I think we could’ve sat and talked for hours. We’ve now had our Jax Patriot for two weeks. He’s certainly been an adventure for our family! We are very grateful to Jeff and Rhonda! We hope to be a wonderful family for Jax!Response from the ownerKassie, thank you so much 💓 Jeff B.Jeff B. ★★★★★ Kendra H.Kendra H. ★★★★★ Response from the ownerLove you and we are beyond blessed you have your special buddy to love for many years 💗 Sharon G.Sharon G. ★★★★★ Awesome dogs and puppiesBrenda K.Brenda K. ★★★★★ Amanda Z.Amanda Z. ★★★★★ We adopted our pup Nori out of Bomba and Server from Roche’s Shepherds. I am beyond pleased and impressed with the quality of dog they are breeding. They are caring and compassionate and incredibly helpful to their clients and their dogs are remarkable. I am a trainer of over ten years and require a medical alert service dog and after a lengthy search for a breeder we found Jeff and Rhonda. Nori has taken incredibly fast to all of her training and gained her STAR puppy and CGC status before the age of one year. At a year and a half she has almost completed all of her service training and has shown great talent in Lure Coursing and Agility training as well. These dogs are beautiful, confident, strong nerved dogs with the sweetest disposition I have ever seen in the breed and are very intelligent. We will absolutely be returning to them for our future puppies. I highly recommend them!Patrick G.Patrick G. ★★★★★ While researching and shopping for a German Shepherd pup, I came across Rhonda and Jeff. They were wonderful to communicate with, and allowed me to visit their place to check things out before making a decision on whether to go with them, or not.They care for their dogs like they are a part of the family, and I was extremely impressed with their care and devotion to their animals. I met multiple extremely attractive and very well behaved dogs!Unfortunately, due to some time constraints and my own indecisiveness, I didn't put a deposit down on the litter that would have suited my time needs, as I was leaving town in a couple weeks and wanted to spend the first few weeks exclusively with my new pup before taking her on the road with me. Jeff remained a wonderful resource for me, despite my buying a dog from a different breeder that had an available one on hand.While I still ended up with a great puppy from the other breeder, I regret not being able to have gotten one from Jeff and Rhonda, and becoming a part of their extended family. My transaction at the other breeder felt like just a business transaction, which isn't what I wanted. Think "walmart" vs "mom and pop" store?I've recommended Roche's German Shepherds to many people that have asked, simply because they truly love their animals and what they're doing in their program. While I have my hands full now, I would definitely go to Roche's first if I was looking for another German Shepherd pup!Thank you Jeff and Rhonda for your time, and for all of the great help you've been!PETER V.PETER V. ★★★★★ Response from the ownerThanks for the 5 star review Peter! Mike P.Mike P. ★★★★☆ GreatResponse from the ownerThanks for your review Mike! Vicki B.Vicki B. ★★★★★ Answer back very timelyResponse from the ownerThanks Vicki for your 5 star review! Karen W.Karen W. ★★★★★ We are so thankful we found Jeff and Rhonda, and our new German Shepherd puppy, Emma. Jeff and Rhonda were great to work with from our first contact. They took time to meet and talk with us several times before we picked her up from them and provided so much helpful information. They helped make sure we had realistic expectations of what bringing our dog home would be like. Their love for all of their dogs is very evident and they are committed to placing all of their puppies in good homes where they will be loved and cared for. I highly recommend Roche’s German Shepherds to anyone looking for a healthy, happy puppy.Response from the ownerThanks Karen for the awesome! How is Emma doing? Please keep in touch. 🙂 Jason T.Jason T. ★★★★★ Response from the ownerThanks Jason for your 5 star review! Tommy GTommy G ★★★★★ Hands down the best dog I’ve ever had. Can’t say enough about these shepherds. Very professional and caring; great experience!!!Response from the ownerThanks Tommy for the review! Take care and we love updates! 😉 Jeff S.Jeff S. ★★★★★ I would highly recommend Roche's German Shepherds for anyone looking for a protection dog or a family pet. Jeff and Rhonda are amazing breeders who always put the health and well being of their puppies as a priority. We got our boy Jet a year and a half ago, and couldn't be happier. His personality and disposition is outstanding. This November he will be entering his first Schutzhund BH-IPO 1 trial, and we are confident that with his exceptional bloodline he will be bringing home one of many titles. Thank you Jeff and Rhonda for your compassion and knowledge of this beautiful breed.Response from the ownerWe are beyond proud to be a part of producing such a special boy for you and your family. He’s gorgeous and what a beautiful temperament! Thank you so much for staying in touch... best wishes with your up coming trials... Theresa M.Theresa M. ★★★★★ Response from the ownerTheresa, Thanks for your 5 star review! Michael M.Michael M. ★★★★★ Picked up our German Shepherd puppy yesterday. I've owned as pets and worked with GSD for over 50 years now. Roche's dogs are superb, excellent quality bloodlines and raised in a family setting. This pup is healthy, happy and an excellent representative of the GSD standard. The process of the purchase was professional and well done. It was obvious from the start that these folks are passionate about the breed and are without a doubt the most loving breeders I've ever met. Have complete confidence in the Roche's and their dogs.Response from the ownerHi Michael, we wanted to say thank you for such kind words and please remember we are here for any questions or concerns:) Brandon R.Brandon R. ★★★★★ Top Quality Dogs at a great price! You can really tell the Jeff and Rhonda put a lot of time and effort into these GSDs and it shows. They also provide you with great tips to assist you on the journey. Hard to find people who genuinely care like they do.Response from the ownerBrandon - Thanks for your review! Dan M.Dan M. ★★★★★ Great breeder and great people. Rhonda is a wealth of knowledge. Love my Chloe. She’s amazing.Response from the ownerThanks Dan for your wonderful review! How's Chloe doing? James SJames S ★★★★★ Awesome breeder, love my ElsaResponse from the ownerThanks James for the review and providing Elsa a wonderful home! Erin E.Erin E. ★★★★★ I initially chose the Roche's because of the reviews I had seen online, but 100% knew I wanted a puppy from them once I met them and talked to them about their dogs. All of the dogs are not only beautiful, but so sweet and loving as well. I wanted to take Salsa home 🙂 After talking with Jeff in more detail, I got to see how amazing the Roche's dogs' blood lines are. They have so many high performing dogs and it really made me want to get my dog into these programs (Schutzhund, advanced obedience, etc.).I got my boy, Brooks, from Max and Eda in July 2017 (born May 2017). I was originally set to get a puppy from Max and Salsa in December, but when a male puppy became available, Rhonda was so nice and asked if I was interested in taking him home earlier. Brooks was potty trained in two days, listened so well, was so easy to train, and was instantly just the most loving dog I've ever owned! He is now a year and a half and the best dog in the world. I couldn't be happier with him!Brooks has completed an Advanced Obedience class (last year) and is going through Protection Work (similar to Schutzhund); he'll also be working on nose work in the future, too. I highly recommend Schutzhund or Protection Work if your dog if really into it like Brooks. The Roche's dogs are bred perfectly for this type of thing and Brooks is at the top of the class! It has really calmed him down even though he's still a puppy. He is a true German Shepherd; he loves to work! :)Thank you, Roche's, for giving me my best friend <3Response from the ownerThank you for taking the time to write a wonderful review ❤️ Everyone wants to take Salsa home 😊We’re very happy to hear that Brooks is doing so well. Our #1 goal is to bring happiness to our Roche’s German Shepherd family. 🙂 Kate M.Kate M. ★★★★★ Our little Girl is such a delight to be around. Such a smart dog. We got her 2 weeks ago and she is already potty trained!Response from the ownerWe’re so happy to hear things are going well 😊 roy J.roy J. ★★★★★ Drove up from St.Louis and pick up our beautiful 8 week old pupResponse from the ownerThank you for choosing us Roy 😊 js_loader

Our little Girl is such a delight to be around. Such a smart dog. We got her 2 weeks ago and she is already potty trained!



My family purchased our first GSD puppy from Roche’s German shepherds in August of this year. We are so impressed with the temperament and beauty of our little girl. Not so little anymore. Jeff and Rhonda have so much pride and love they give their own dogs and you can certainly see how this trait carries over into the puppies. Max the father, is absolutely stunning and his temperament and demeanor is exactly what we were looking for. With little children in the house temperament was very important to us. Thanks again Jeff and Rhonda for giving us such a loving healthy puppy.
