Mike & Anna

There are truly not enough words I can use to describe how pleased we are with our puppy Mishia (daughter of Max and Eda) from Roche’s. In our search for our first GSD, I contacted all of the large kennels in the Chicagoland area. When we found Jeff and Rhonda Roche, we were sold. Our first conversation with Jeff R., he spent so much time with us addressing all of our (many) questions, and made us feel incredibly comfortable about the process. We did not feel rushed, or like ‘just another buyer’, as some of the other kennels made us feel. When we came to pick up our girl, Rhonda spent a ton of time with us, making sure we were as prepared as possible. Their support did not end there. They recommended a trainer for us in the Chicagoland area named Jeff Lake who has been absolutely FANTASTIC. He, has been by our place a number of times going through obedience basics with us, and calls in frequently to check on Mishia and asks how her lessons are going, always providing additional advice. Unfortunately, we are a little too distant for him to come by regularly, so he highly recommended a boarder/trainer he works with named Milo. Mishia has been boarded with Milo for the last two weeks learning basic puppy obedience, and she has come along incredibly far. In the meantime, Jeff L. still checks up on her!

Purchasing Mishia from the Roche’s has been one of the best decisions our family has made. The Roche’s have provided us a network of loving people, like Jeff Lake and Milo, who have supported us through every step of owning a GSD. For new owners like ourselves, this support is invaluable, and we can’t feel blessed enough. Thank you again, Jeff and Rhonda. for enriching our family!

A little about Mishia: At 8 weeks we brought her home. She was basically completely potty trained from day one. She’s incredibly even-tempered, docile around newborns/children and super playful. She has beautiful coloring and a short coat. Her last visit to the vet at 16 weeks old she was 40 lbs. She’s 20 weeks old today!
