Let me take this opportunity to thank you once
again for providing our sheriff's office two outstanding working
dogs. Indy and Herby have been a valuable asset to our agency.
Due to our location being so close to the Mexican border, narcotic
smuggling is a real plauge to our communities. Having these two
dogs on the street has already proven to be a wise investment.
Once again you and your staff have out done yourselves. I have
attached some photos of narcotics which both dogs have assisted
in taking off the street. Both dogs made these seizures within
their first 2 weeks on the road. Thank you once again Mike. Thank
your staff for us and continue to do what you guys do best which
is providing law enforcement real working dogs.

Mike & Nicolle,
My name is Eric Sergi a former customer of yours. I was looking
at your website and saw that you still have a picture of Wayne
under the file “Sold Dog Archive” then “Sold
To The Public”.
Wayne is number 83 from the bottom. I felt compelled to write
you this letter and attach some picture of Wayne so you can see
how he has become a big part of our family.
I first looked into purchasing a guard dog due to the fact that
our home was burglarized. I travel out of the country for work
and was in need of the peace of mind that a home protection K9
could offer. An alarm system is good but won’t provide the
protection from a home invasion or break-ins. It still takes time
for help to arrive.
We live in an upscale golf course community in East Orlando
Florida “Eastwood”. For six months our neighborhood
was plagued with break-ins. Most of the time it was what police
called “crimes of opportunity”. Then it turned very
serious one Christmas for our neighborhood.
My neighbor owns a jewelry store in Waterford Lakes Florida.
He was followed home one night by four men and his family was
tied-up at gun point. He was forced to drive back to the store
leaving two of the criminals behind with his wife and children.
They were all let go without any serious physical harm but it
could have gone differently for him and his family. Again, there
was only little physical harm but the mental harm was much more
damaging. His wife could never return to their home and he had
to sell it in one of the worst housing market ever. Insurances
can’t cover all things!
I have to admit that I had some hesitation in purchasing a guard
dog. The home invasions helped to solidify that this was the protection
and peace of mind that I was in need of. I have been a dog owner
my whole life. The dogs I had were either homeless or I adopted
them from the pound. My wife only had small dogs growing up and
was uneasy to have a large attack dog in our home. I never owned
a trained K9 and was also a little nervous about having a dog
like that around my family. Sherry was also three months pregnant
and we had heard horror stories about attack dogs.
I am the type of person that does a lot of research before making
a decision. I interviewed a lot of your competition and found
that your company wasn’t just trying to make a sale but
wanted to find out our needs. Your staff got to know us and ask
all the right questions. Your company was more concerned with
placing the right dog in our home and with my family.
Even after the sale, I would call with questions from time-to-time
and your staff would always help me. Your company is one of the
most professional companies I have the pleasure of doing business
with. You found us the right dog to fit our needs and with that,
he become a big part of our family. Sherry and I “now”
understand the difference between an ‘attack dog’
and a well-trained home protection K9 from your company. Wayne
made us feel safe and gave us a lot of love. He was never aggressive
to our friends or family members and was just a great dog.
Our little girl Katie was born on June 4, 2010 and has always
looked at Wayne as her big brother. Her first word was Wayne.
click on the picture to see WAYNE's gallery
They have never been apart and he protected her better than I
could have ever hoped for. Wayne passed away on April 7, 2013
at 1:47am. He played with Katie in the yard all day as Sherry
and I did yard work. It was a great afternoon. I took Wayne out
for his 11:00pm walk and noticed his stomach was three times its
normal size. I call a emergency veterinarian and he said to bring
him right over. He informed me that his stomach may have turned
and he could be in the need of emergency surgery. When I got Wayne
there, they stabilized him and thought he would be fine if they
operated immediately. When they opened him up, 70% of him stomach
muscle were already dead. The doctor stated that he would be unable
to save Wayne. The final cause of death was cardiac arrest due
to the fact that when they unturned his stomach, it released toxins
into his blood stream and stopped his heart.
My brother passed away in 2004. The pain I feel today is no
different then when I lost my brother. I can’t believe the
loss of Wayne would affect me this way but I guess that’s
what happens when you lose your best friend.
The reason for this letter is to thank you for bringing Wayne
into our lives. I do have one request. Could you update your website
under the file “Sold Dog Archive” then “Sold
To The Public” and put a little information about Wayne.
I noticed there was no information about Wayne and wanted people
to know how wonderful he was. While Wayne had only a short life,
it was a great life and filled with lots of love...
Wayne was a big part of our family and we were very proud to
have him as a part of it. He will be missed…..
Thank you Kreative Kennels and your staff for everything

Mike & Nicolle,
Baylee has made a successful transition from Kreative Kennels
to being an official Texan!!
She was exactly as you said and is exactly what we were looking
for. She is so sweet and loving with the kids yet extremely attached
to Jason and I already. She is always near or following one of
us and eager for praise and direction which we love!
She had an unbelievable first night! No whining or whimpering
which was a wonderful surprise!!!! And the best part of all -
no accidents in the house - (extra thank you for that one!!)
We couldn't be happier with our purchase from Kreative and we
look forward to many happy years and memories with our Baylee.
Thank you for providing our family with an amazing animal and
placing us with the perfect pet.
With our heartfelt thanks and appreciation,
Jason & Karen G.
Mike, Nicolle and Greg:
Just an update on Hockey. He is about 90 pounds, looking beautiful
and doing exceptionally well. After 8 months now, he is with me
most days at my office. He has been outstanding in every way and
continues to amaze me. I did leave him with Melonie one day and
when I came home, she said Hockey has been carrying in the groceries
for me. Sure enough, he had been carrying articles of groceries
from the car to the kitchen, and then she stepped him up to whole
bags! She told him to do it and he just did it! I had not thought
of it. Since then, I realized I really need to remember not to
treat him like an ordinary dog. Now I tell him to “carry”
and he gets the paper and carries it into the house. Tell him
“office” and he goes on into my office without me.
tell him “car” and he goes and gets in and stays there
until another command, tell him “potty” and he does
his business, tell him again and he will try again and just look
at me like “Dad, I really don’t need to but will try
Sometimes I just call his name, and depending on where we are
and what our surroundings, his response may be to wait until after
I have his attention for a second command, or to come to me for
a hug! He stays pretty much at my feet during the day at the office
and around time to go home, reminds me its time, and turns into
play mode! If I am slow to get out of bed in the morning, he is
up on the bed with his big paw on my chest or his long snoze wedged
under my arm until I get up. So much for needing an alarm clock!
IF I leave him at home with Melonie, he will be at the door waiting
for my return. The greeting when I get home is quite welcoming!
Mike, this is our third dog from Kreative for the family, and
each time you have lead us absolutely in the right direction with
a dog. Each time I have given you a laundry list (you may say
ad nauseum) of traits, attributes, temperaments, etc. and each
time you went to work to find me a perfect fit. I did not think
I could ever replace Goody with a dog that could be as amazing.
Well, Hockey has been quite a find. It would not be possible to
love him more than Goody, but I don’t love him any less
either! I have come to realize that the biggest limitation with
Hockey is me. I need to remember that he absolutely loves to learn
new things and does so with great ease.
One good story for you— On the flight home from San Francisco,
the family in front of us had a 3 year old boy and a new born
baby, so they had their hands plenty full. During the 5 hour flight,
periodically I would sense that Hockey was enjoying a random dropped
Cheerio from the 3 year old sitting in front of us. After the
flight, as we were leaving, the father looked back and saw Hockey’s
big black head and started pointing at him and belly laughing.
After a bit, he caught his breath and said “this whole trip,
my 3 year old has been telling me “Daddy, there is an animal
under my seat” , to which he would repeatedly reply “No
son, there is NO animal under your seat!! ”. That son may
never have confidence in his father again!
Thanks again Mike. You and your team have again performed admirably.
We apologize for the delay in writing. Selena, Moli and myself
have been traveling for the past several months. I want to take
time to commend you and praise the individual and business person
We have had many conversations leading up to purchasing our
dog, many after and always you have been a gentleman and straight
with us. Your knowledge of the breed has helped educate us and
allows us to properly care for our new family member. (Moli is
no longer a dog but our princess)
Moli has been a joy, very even temperament, protective when need
be and all around perfect fit for our family. She loves watching
movies with the kids on the lounge, walks on the leash and rides
in the car wonderfully.
Honestly there is not one complaint that can be brought up. You
and your staff fulfilled every request we had, made the transition
a breeze for new ownership and supplied us with all the details
to care for Moil properly.
I attached some photos of Moli at the Waldorf Astoria and Crowne
Plazza on one leg of our trip. As you can see she is vibrant,
healthy spoiled rotten but mostly happy in her new home.
Thank you again sincerely for all of your assistance, fitting
us with a perfect addition to our family and importantly for treating
us fairly, honestly and being compassionate to our needs.
Very best regards
Joe, Selena and Moli Z
Just thought you would like to know that we put
a brevet on one of your puppies. Very nice dog and bites very
well. :) My wife Lori was the handler. We have been training him
for about a year. He has very strong nerves and plenty of drive.
Congrats on producing a nice dog!!!
Just wanted to drop you a note and say how happy we are with
Zuca. She has fitted right in with us, she is a very big part
of our family now. As you said she would, she has expanded her
ZONE of protection around the home, and the once birds and squirrels
that got a free ride in the front yard is no more. She is on guard
whenever she is with one of us, and seems to have a 6th sense
about people - some of them she just won't let near us, others
she keeps an eye on.
Her health is excellent she is maintaining 90 to 92 lbs, her
coat is shinny all the time and has endless energy for a walk
or run anytime.
Hope you family is well, maybe someday we will get her a friend.
Thank you again,
Wade & Gigi Peebles, LOS GATOS, CA
Well yesterday I took Aziz to a local trainer to see how he reacts
when in protection mode. I can honestly say you guys have done
a phenomenal job with his training. I have never been around a
dog like him. He gets a long with our family members and to see
him turn the switch to being our protector is just amazing. In
fact, the trainer said, I don't know how much you paid for him
but it wasn't enough. Just do me a favor, don't raise the price
for our next shepherd.
I wanted to ask you if Aziz has any another training types for
advancement in Schutzhund. For instance, like searching and etc.
Watching Aziz, it looks like he has a lot of potential and I don't
want to short change him. Any recommendations would be appreciated.
Thank you so much for this experience. Our last shepherd, was
very close to me and I can say without any reservations I will
have a similar bond with Aziz as well.

Hi Mike, Greg, Dave & Weun,
Clemens is doing really well, he is pretty well adjusted to the
house and has learned how to open the door to my office. He has
become very attached to Gabby and will listen to her when I am
not around. Everyday I can see how much more protective he becomes,
especially on walks. He has scared quite a few people with just
I am not sure who I asked this but I asked if you thought Clemens
would be interested in the pool for a swim. Well here's the scoop
on the pool, last Sunday the girls were playing in the pool. Laughing
and splashing, well this made Clemens really worried especially
when they would go under the water. He jumped in twice after Gabby,
I know he was shocked the first time to discover that he was completely
wet. But he would follow on the outside of the pool watching them
to make sure they were ok. I am glad to know he's watching as
well and that he won't take a dip just for fun.
The doggie introductions were completely stressful for me. Gus
was interested in Clemens, but Molly did not like Him. I am sure
it's because he sniffed for too long.
Clemens is the hands down the best all around dog. He is a gentleman
at the office and is turning into a ladies man. With that being
said, I worked late the last two Fridays, when our neighbors are
the busiest. Their side of the building is shaded in the afternoon
so I walk Clemens down there to stay cool. It has been very beneficial
for our office. Less people are parking in our spaces and they
generally stay in their cars until Clemens and I have passed.
He stares at them with his serious face and watches them even
after they are behind us. This is a nice touch, I know he naturally
does that but it my book it's the icing.
I could go on, but you already know what an obedient dog he is.
Just a bit of humor , last night my husband asked
me if I think Kreative Kennels ever has any dumb dogs , because
he sure is tired of this one out smarting him . On the serious
is beautiful ,smart ,athletic and brave .I never stop being amazed
with her and her abilities.
Love her to pieces.
Just a little note to let you know how well Trey
is doing. I am so pleased with him! It has been fun watching him
learn about new things, from a black trash bag on the ground to
walking by a semi truck. He doesn't run from it, just stretches
to smell it with my encouragement.
I wanted to say a special thank you to everyone I met the day
I came up. I loved being in my element and didn't want to leave!
Please let Joe know how much I love Trey and we go out everyday.
Also tell John I wear my KK sweatshirt everyday and thank him
again for that.
I appreciated all the time and understanding from Nichole and
for staying with getting my Rabies tag for Trey.
I continue to check your website and hope maybe to add to my
clan with a female pup someday. I am also very excited to start
next month with my friend k9 trainer down hear who works the police
dogs and get Trey back to some work! I think he misses it because
he wants to chase a lot of things. At least he not going after
my poms when they play. I think my black & tan girl has a
crush on him. She likes to give him kisses and paw at his nose.
I searched all over the country for a breeder that could help
pair me with a German Shepherd. I saw the Kreative Kennels website
and liked what I saw, from the main staff training 'Schutzhund'
skills to Nicolle socializing the dogs. I saw that you had a system
based on philosophy, and I respected that. I called and spoke
with Mike about the sort of dog I was looking for. I needed a
specific set of traits to fit my lifestyle and family. Mike suggested
that I check out Walter of Kreative.
A week later I picked Walter up from the airport. Walter (I spell
it Walther, like the gun) was an instant hit. This is the most
incredible dog I have ever met. Walther was calm, reliable, predictable,
and exceptionally easy to train. He exhibited exactly the guarding
traits I needed (alert, deter, posture) and he stepped up to guard
my wife while I was on my first deployment. At 4am one morning
while I was in Afghanistan, a man tried to bang in the door while
my wife was home alone. Walther went into land-shark mode and
bolted to the door with his unmistakable warning bark. The man
decided he didn't want to meet the teeth inside the house -- he
never bothered her again. Most of the time though, he was a lover,
and his dominating physical characteristics meant that his very
presence was an effective deterrent.
The thing that really stood out to me though, was that Walther
was scary-smart. He understood whole phrase commands that no one
ever taught him, like "Go find a rabbit!" as we walked
through a field. He just intuitively understood what I needed
and was motivated by a winning combination of pack-drive and prey-drive.
I can't teach a dog to be "smart," I had to start with
a good baseline, and that is what you get from a high-quality
Unfortunately, I outlived my dog this week. Even in his final
hours, he was dutifully guarding the door to my bedroom. Walther
was magnificent and I will never replace him, but I was so pleased
with my Kreative dog (and friends of mine with Kreative dogs are
so pleased) that I plan to get my next rock-star dog from Kreative.
Thank you guys. Seriously, and in the most heartfelt way I can
express, you paired me with exactly the right dog for me at the
time. Thank you.
The picture was taken by Meg Haney, a really awesome photographer.
The pups are doing great, and are exactly as you described!
Holly (call name "Jazz") has been going home with Danny
and his family and he LOVES her... scary obsessed loves her. Already
shows amazing home protection characteristics. Looks like she
is going to double as his personal dog.
Orick (call name "Ru") goes home with my trainer Nate.
So both pups spend the later part of the day around children.
This pup will let us work him all day. Just incredible.
During the day at the kennel we have them on a schedule of obedience,
bite building, and tracking (in wooded areas). Also, they play
with the clients' dogs in the program and get thrown in the pup
socialization class on the weekend.
We may use Orick to try to start a police K9 program in our city
(Peekskill) if he continues to excel so may start him on Narc
detection soon. Can go any direction with this boy really. Whatever
his destiny we will be sure not to waste his talent. Exactly what
we wanted in both.
I will be sure to send you some vids of them as they start to
mature and give you progress reports.
I hope all is well there!
I just wanted to say thanks for the advice on Izak. I took him
to the vet and she confirmend the same thing you said. He is now
taking some anti-inflamitory's and is doing great.
Izak is doing awesome! Take a look at him in action during training,
*see attached pic's* He is only 5 months old in the pictures and
all ready on the puppy sleeve! He has an extremely high drive
and we love it! We appreciate all your help and love our Kreative
Kuma ( Hector) and I wish you a very Merry Christmas and may
this New Year bring you as much happiness as you have brought
both of us.
Thank you for bringing Kuma and I together. He is the best friend
I have ever had! He has turned into quite a protector and a great
watch dog. He never leaves my side.. I am so blessed .. Thank
Blessings to you and your family...
Some news about Cobra (Greco of Kreative - Atrax
x Fanta). He is too good. We donated him and working with Brewster
PD to replace their deceased dog. Already an incredible tracker.
Working on his narc work now. Never trained such a natural before.
Great for PR (very friendly), nerves of steel, will work all day.
K9-1 and the community of Brewster, NY thanks you for your expertise
in producing amazing dogs!

Thank you for getting the AKC form signed. It
has been sent in. Uzi just finished her 7th week of training today.
She is still a handful but is catching on. We have had no second
thoughts. Thought you might find interesting some of the descriptions
that have been used for her so far: "athletic", "high
octane", "alpha female" and "one dog in a
thousand". That is in addition to the numerous people who
comment on her beauty. The individual who is training her I guess
has been doing this for about fifteen years. He said if we ever
wanted to get rid of her (we don't) he would take her in a minute.
He also said he needed to know more about your kennel so I gave
him your website. His personal dog is a German Shepherd.
Another thing; Ginny, my wife, just had her first children's book
published last week. If you are the least bit curious her website
I thought I would send you a couple of pics of the pup I purchased
from you in January 2009. I know him as Rafe, you know him as
Yadir. Sire: Vanesko Vom Salztalblick, Dam: Yessy Anrebri. Of
course he is now 3 years old, healthy and happy still living here
in Challis Idaho.
He has developed and grown into a very strong and compitant
cow dog out in our field by using hand signals and eye contact
to direct him where needed. He is able to freeze any given cow
with his eyes. I'm working with him now building his vocabulary
and protection skills. My husband Scott has been in Canada so
it has been Rafe and I alone here at the house. He knows his boundaries
around the place extremely well, and protects them without fail.
He also prides himself on always keeping me in his sights and
by my side.
He is so strong yet so loving all at the same time, We have been
inseperable for the last three years and I love him very much,
thank you for him. I know he would have made an outstanding police
dog, but I am thankful every day that he is here with me. He is
truly my very best friend.
The pups did make it to us safe. Anders has been staying with
my family and has hit the floor running, doing great in puppy
socialization class and with my two little boys, wife, little
terrier, and cats. I am more than happy with his temperament.
I have lots planned for him as far as training.
Danny can't stop raving about Greco. I will see them today and
we'll waste no time getting the most out of that little ball of
drive. We are trainers so we will throw them into the repetoir
here while bringing them home to our families.
Thank you for the excellent job you have done on these pups.
We are estatic!
I just wanted to say thank-you once again for
working with me to identify the perfect dog for me. It has been
another year since I last emailed. Goody is continuing to be the
most unbelievable dog I have ever had (and I have had several,
including 3 other shepherds). I never had even considered buying
a trained dog. Now I seriously doubt I will ever buy any dog but
a trained dog. He is by my side at all times when I am close by
him. I have never had a smarter dog in my life. It seems that
he knows my thinking.
A truly amazing dog and family protector.
That said, he did precisely what you told me
he would as he grew accustomed to our home. Once a worker came
in the house unannounced. Sorry for the worker, I thought I was
going to have to clean up the floor where he was standing. Goody
was right at him and would not let him twitch a muscle until I
came in. He is still the most sociable dog in the park and at
our triathlons. Always seems relaxed unless something unusual
is worth noting close to me. Kids love him as do other pets. He
wakes me at the same time every day with a ball. If I don’t
get up, he is on me licking my face until I get going. What a
Lastly, I just bought an office condo that I
can have him with me during the day as I wish. If it sounds overboard,
I assure you Mr Goody is worth it!
Thanks again Mike, and I trust you and all your
dogs are doing well.
PS. Jason’s “Domino” is doing
great too. Two winners!
I just wanted to thank you again for "Hector". I have
changed his name to Kuma, hope you don't mind. He responds better
to that name. He never leaves my side and BARKS! He actually scares
people… The delivery people are frightened to come up to
the gate. He charges and barks! THANK YOU!!!
He goes with me everywhere and now loves HIS TRUCK. He is very
suspicious of strangers. Everyone thinks he is beautiful and wants
to pet him but he will not allow anyone within 3 feet of us unless
I say it is okay. He will stand in front of me and growl very
I was shocked however to find how many people are hesitant to
approach me with him. I am so used to people just coming up and
petting my dogs ... not with this guy!
He is the love of life! He started puppy class last week. He
did great! He is very brave... He also loves the water! We go
hiking often up by the river. He gets along so well with all my
guys including my cat.
He is PERFECT!!!
I just can't thank you enough… I feel so safe with him
in my life…
God Bless you!!
Please use my email and if there is anything else you need let
me know.... I am so grateful!!
The trainer and Mike take the time to really match the right
dog for each person. After speaking with Mike on the phone and
explaining to him my needs and what I was looking for he spoke
with the trainers and found me the PERFECT dog. He was not trying
to just sell me a dog. He found me the right dog. This is rare
in a greed driven World of Kennels who just sell dogs. They really
care and take the time to get to know the people and have a wonderful
understanding of their dogs.
They found my perfect match...
I highly recommend Kreative Kennels...
Thank you so much!
Giula (aka Nika) is perfect. She got here with no problems, in
fact got here three hours early. She has already become a member
of the family. She even loves our cat. Well thanks for the puppy.
We have attached a photo for you to use on your website, if you
Thanks again, John
P.S. the cats not very happy
Dear Mike and Nicolle,
I just wanted to send this letter saying "Thanks"
for sending Majik to me. I remember calling and talking to Mike
about the kind of dog I wanted. He thought that Majik was that
dog if I really wanted: a dog that had high drives and would chase
anything and everything that I threw. I told him that was correct.
Sticks, stones, balls, pipes and toys are just some of the things
that she catches and brings back to me. She is a blast! Majik
is exactly the dog I wanted. I found out that "you get what
you pay for". She is very protective of our home, too. Thank
you, Nicolle for the wonderful job you did with the shipping.

Just wanted to thank you for our wonderful dog, Sammi. She is
one of yours born Sept 28, 2009. Her mother and all the pups had
names starting with the letter Z. We live in New Hampshire. Sammi
currently weighs 69 pounds. She is smart as a whip, loves to play
ball or frisbee, and is currently in an advanced obedience class
and does awsome without even trying. My husband John just loves
his dog (and so do I). The bottom photo was at a horse show in
late spring so she is about 8 months old. The top one is of her
tubing with John in August (so about 11 months old).
Dear Kreative Kennel Staff,
Our sheriff is very pleased with both K9 Cody and Endy. Both dogs
have obtained their national narcotic certificatiion and have
been working our streets for 3 weeks. In that short time both
dogs have seized over 1000 pounds of marihuana and K9 Cody has
a felony apprehension. I would like to extend a big thank you
for making my job easier as a trainer. The foundation training
which your staff implemented made it very easy to transition both
dogs to actual street applications. Keep up your great work in
bringing back to law enforcement the true working german shepherd

Hi Kreative Kennels!
We adopted Shakira back in April and thought you might like an
update. Shakira goes by the name Elsa Mae at home now. She is
beautiful, smart and full of energy. She is even more than I had
hoped for in a companion dog. She goes to obedience and agility
training about three times a week and is turning out to be the
superstar at the canine center. Everyone is amazed at her drive
and energy and we can't wait to see what she will be like in another
year when she can start going over the higher jumps (they only
let her jump 8 inches so far because of her growth plates).
She LOVES tunnels, chutes, teeter-totters, and dog walks. She
is a sweetheart and a great family dog. Her personality is wonderful.
I can't say enough good things about her!!! People stop me in
the streets to ask where I got her and I always tell them how
they can find your website and to not worry about getting a puppy
they haven't seen through your kennel.
Attached are a couple of pictures of our Elsa / your Shakira.
If you ever breed her parents together again and get another long-hair
puppy, let me know. I keep watching your website for one...
Thanks so much for raising such an impressive line of dogs.
Just a note to let you know that Lord is our personal protection
ranch dog now. He has a 46 acre run of his own. He's beautiful,
healthy and happy. Him and our female, guard the entire ranch.
They are so smart. Lord knows I don't want him running-off the
deer so he sits and watches intensely. If we get an alarm bark
in the middle of the night, the minute we come out of the house
with the rifle, him and our female both become quiet as a mouse
and watch for our cue. It's so great to own intellegent, perceptive
These dogs are so smart, they know sport from danger and react
appropriately. They know when to be quiet and when to raise hell
without any training. We have only allowed him to sire one litter
since we've had him and most of those pups went to friends and
family. My daughter received one of his black male pups and she
has him so spoiled that you have to remind him at times he's still
a dog. I feel so much better knowing she has him by her side since
she lives far away. We get many compliments on Lord and I direct
them to your website.
Thank you for such a wonderful addition to our family.
When we appreciate Lord, we appreciate Kreative Kennels.
Just wanted to let you know how happy we are with the little
girl. I havent weighed her in a while but she is beautiful. Absolutely
a pleasure to look at and watch move. Her teeth are perfect, just
needed a little wiggling. She is a machine when it comes to playing,
and extremely quick learner. Needless to say she has no bad behaviors
and is sooooo sweet. We cant thank you enough. I will send pictures
as soon as I can get a good one of her. I hope you can meet her
some day. I think you would have been pleased to have kept her,
but I am so thankful we have her. I'll keep you informed as she
Walkin' The Dog - Merrill and Marisa Lahman
My name is Brian and my wife and I became the proud owners of
Zaro, a.k.a Niko, from the Zoran/Zuca litter in July 2009. I'm
not sure how I came across your website but I am sure glad I did.
I had been searching for a GSD for months and didn't want to settle
for a backyard breeder. I called and spoke to Mike for at least
half an hour about what type of dog I was looking for and what
I wanted to get out of the dog. He gave me a detailed description
of Zaro and what he expected him to turn out like. From the night
we picked him up at the airport, Zaro has been nothing less then
impressive. He took to us and house training immediatly with only
two accidents in the house to date. He is very easy to handle
and takes to training very well.
Zaro has become increasingly more protective of the house and
my wife and I. Even while playing at the park he does not let
us out of his sight. Prior to finding Kreative Kennels, I had
never heard of the raw food diet. Nicolle sent us a link and plenty
of info on the diet and it's benefits. We have continued the raw
food diet and I can honestly say I will never feed a dog commercial
dog food again. We have received so many compliments on how good
our dog looks and I think the raw food diet has alot to do with
that. I must admit, I was a little uneasy about purchasing a dog
from the other side of the country that I had not met in person
and only saw pictures of online. After talking to Mike and Nicolle
I knew that Kreative Kennels was no joke. Zaro has been all and
more then what Mike described to me over the phone and has been
an examlpe of Kreative's dedication to the German Shepherd breed.
If your looking for a REAL german shepherd dog, Kreative Kennels
is the place to go.
Akira arrived without any difficulties whatsoever, and appears
in mint condition. We are so very pleased with her wit, charm,
and vitality. She is people friendly and we want to keep her that
way. She accepted Benefual puppy chow without hesitation. Last
night she slept in her crate beside my bed and did not awake until
6:30 this am,at which time she wanted to go out and pee. She has
whined a total of three times and was taken out without accident.
To date we have played every puppy games imaginableMy granddaughter
from Morgantown accompied me to Charlotte. My granddaughter and
her fiance have entertained her since 9am this morning. It amazing
how fast she is learning her name and simple comands. We love
her dearly already! And you may use us as a reference resource
in case there are others like myself who are leary of paying a
high dollar figure for a shepherd site unseen. Thanks again! Delightfully

I am writing to give you an update report on Luger (from the Ajax
/ Yessi litter). He is now 6 months old and weighs in at an impressive
73lbs. Luger has a great prey drive and loves to conquer any challenge.
I have attached a video, taken today, of Luger playing with
his Schutzhund obedience trainer and a soft sleeve. This is Luger's
first time ever with a bite sleeve and it was all kept very playful
with no stress on the dog to perform. The Trainer, Larry Nava
of Tri-State K-9, is a decorated schutzhund trainer with 25 years
of training dogs. The trainer pulled out a burlack sack and Luger
instantly wanted to bite and play with it, then when the sleeve
was brought out he quickly took a full bite and refused to let
Luger is a great Dog that is very quick to learn. He has a great
personality and loves everyone, while still having an edge of
dominance. He has all the characteristics of great working dog,
and is a tribute to the Quality of animals being produced by the
staff at Kreative Kennels. I will keep you up to date on his progress
and will send more pics as he grows up and trains. Wish us luck
on his obedience training and I'll keep you posted.

Second K-9 unit joins South Lake Tahoe police
SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. — The newest member of the South
Lake Tahoe Police Department is a two-year-old from the Czech
Republic. Argo, a German
Shepherd, became the second police dog in the department on Feb.
15 when officers picked him up from Kreative Kennels in Turlock,
Calif. The new police dog, with handler Mark Hounsell, joins the
department's Belgian Malinois, Duke, and Officer Tony Broadfoot
in the department's K-9 unit. Argo's arrival is the culmination
of efforts by Hounsell, Broadfoot and Sgt. Josh Adler, who formed
the South Lake Tahoe Police Canine Association two years ago to
support the department's K-9 unit. The non-profit organization
raised $4,500 through community donations and canine trials during
the past two summers. The remaining $8,000 needed to pay for Argo,
his training and equipment was paid for by criminal assets seized
With the addition, South Lake Tahoe police will have access to
a dog seven days a week, something officers feel will benefit
South Shore residents. While selecting a police dog is not an
exact science, when members of the canine association saw the
dog in Turlock, they immediately agreed he was the right choice.
Believe it or not, there is a lot of personality involved in it,”
Broadfoot said. Hounsell has faced the business end of police
dogs for the past 15 years as a decoy and said he's excited to
move to the handler position. He's been brushing up on Argo's
“I've been speaking more Czech than I have been English
lately,” Hounsell said with a laugh. Although the German
Shepherd has already received some training, he'll will still
need to go through an additional 4 to 6 weeks of Commission on
Peace Officer Standards and Training certification with Hounsell
before beginning work on the street. Argo will start off focused
on searching and suspect apprehension, but will eventually be
trained in narcotics, Adler said.

I hope you and your family are doing well! We've been doing training
with Wyatt for Schutzhund and he is of course a natural. He still
possesses all the bones or all the toys he wants and will keep
Ruger away from them...just like when he was 8 weeks old. Here
are some photos of our training session a couple of weeks ago.
He is a great dog (Charis/Yaskia if you didn't remember the litter).
It is so funny but his personality when I picked him at 4 1/2
weeks is the EXACT same as it is now. He is so funny, loves his
people, loves to be with us, but also independent. Loves to play...LOVES
his food (he was the puppy in the middle of the food dish when
Anyhow, I just wanted to send you an update. He is 6 months old
now. He weighs about 60 lbs. I still have him on the raw food/home
made diet. He is smart and easy to train. We have a West German
Show line breeder that is in our Schutzhund group and she said
she wouldn't hesitate to breed any of her show line bitches to
Wyatt. She really likes his angles.
Good Day Mike,
In just a few words, I wanted to let you know that I was delighted
to visit your praiseworthy facilities. Thank you for the opportunity
you have provided for me to visit the legacy of your hard labor.
I also want to thank your son for the grand tour he gave me and
for the thoughtfulness he exudes. As an overall experience, I
was impressed with all of the dogs, including all of the puppies
as they all looked absolutely beautiful and displayed a healthy
amount of drive.
Most definitely, I was impressed with everything I have seen on
your premises. By the same token, I grew up on the eastern European
Block where I worked extensively with lots of different working
dogs. I have a vast experience with German Shepherds; especially
those from the Czech Republic . While working with these dogs
Iove acquired a lot of knowledge, expertise and perspective that
can only come from experience. As such, I grew up always learning
new tricks of the trade and I grew close to these dogs. Without
a doubt I grew to love these dogs; they are intelligent, amazing
and beautiful. However, the fruits of your labor seem to have
a static display of applied love and dedication in action towards
one of my lifelong passions.
My main reason for this email is to congratulate you on all the
accomplishments I¢ve seen while touring at your enterprises.
I want you to know that I very much support the love people have
for German Shepherds. Furthermore, the way I see it; all of your
dedication, diligent work and sacrifices you invest right now,
most definitely will reflect perhaps twenty or thirty years into
the future. I know for a fact, there are not too many people involved
and dedicated to the extent that Iove seen while I was visiting
P.S. Being a foreigner in this country I have a good laugh seeing
American people getting "turn on" on import dogs not
realizing that they can get the same dogs or many times better
(for less) from a local facility like yours.
The Folsom Police K9 Unit Welcomes K9 Ramon…
In March 2009, after the retirement of K9 Jerry, we welcomed
K9 Ramon to the Folsom Police K9 Unit. Ramon is a three year old
German Shepherd that came to us from Kreative Kennels in Turlock,
CA. Ramon is an incredibly good natured dog, as well as being
very social. Ramon has quickly become a part of our family.
Ramon took to training immediately. Ramon was patrol certified
and hit the streets in April 2009. Ramon is trained in tracking,
article/building/area searching and criminal apprehension. In
September 2009 Ramon completed his training and certification
for narcotics detection.
Hi Kreative Kennel,
I just wanted to email you a picture of two dogs that I had
purchased from you about a year and a half ago. Zeus and Zader
have grown up to be beautiful and very loyal companions. I just
wanted to thank you and to show you they are doing well. Please
open up the picture using Window Picture. Thanks again.

Here is a picture of “Dust” . We call him Zeke. He
is doing great and is turning out to be everything I had hoped
for. Thanks and happy New Year.
Esmeralda County uses K-9s
The Esmeralda County Sheriff's Office recently started a K-9
dog program, according to Sheriff Ken Elgan. Two shepherds were
recently purchased from Kreative Kennels in Turlock, Calif. Both
dogs are training in narcotics detection with the help of the
Nye County Sheriff's Office.
According to Elgan, there has been a significant increase in
drug and money trafficking on Highway 95; this is due to narcotics
interdiction teams working the main interstates throughout the
country. Traffickers are now accessing the secondary highways
in the hope they will not be detected. Highway 95 is a major artery
for travel north to south. Recently the Nye County Sheriff's Office,
with the use of a narcotics K-9, seized more than $750,000 in
the Beatty area. They have seized over $650,00 in the Tonopah
area from motorists passing through. The kicker in all this is
that money goes directly to the sheriff's office for use in narcotics
enforcement. This means the sheriff can use the money to buy equipment
such as vehicles, radars, ballistic vests for officers or any
other equipment related to drug enforcement, saving the taxpayers
hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Nevada law also gives the sheriff the authority to give a portion
of the money to the school district at the end of the fiscal year.
The two dogs purchased, Vader and Nurmo, are doing outstanding
work in a short period, according to Master Trainer Bill Stark
of the Nye County Sheriff's Office. Elgan said Vader, an all-black
Shepherd handled by Dep. Tony Phillips, has already recovered
marijuana located in the center console of a vehicle. Nurmo, who
is handled by Sgt. Scott Johnson, is ready to work as well. Elgan
said, "We have high hopes for this program and will be aggressively
working to remove narcotics and money derived through sales off
I just wanted to share what Bella was up to in her first week
with us. Take care and Merry Xmas!
Thanks again for seeing us yesterday. I wanted to make sure you
guys found Aramis. I left him in the blue kennel with the lead
on top. Didn't know what large kennel he belonged to, hopefully
you guys found him.
Speaking of Aramis, depending on what happens with our unit
Lieutenant, Aramis is who I am leaning toward. Of course, I keep
going back and forth with Sarran.
My team was very impressed with your kennel and everyone working
there. Very impressed. Hopefully Phil Divinigracia comes out today
and takes a puppy off your hands!
Be in touch soon.
We finally made it to Colorado after a looooong road trip where
Rumo behaved himself admirably. We actually sedated him the first
two days, Andy was so nervous that we had killed him because about
20 minutes after he took his first pill he could hardly walk and
was dragging his paws across the floor; we had to carry him to
the car! Poor little guy was probably like "Guys, is this
car the rest of my life now??" He's settling in quite nicely
and is enjoying the snow and the freedom out here. He's VERY vocal
and speaks up whenever he is frustrated, bored, or if we stay
in bed too long. As you can see, he's darkened up a TON and is
a spitting image of Charis. He's still a mellow guy and sharp
as well. We're teaching him to sit by the door when we get back
from a walk and lift up his paws so we can wipe them clean! How
did his siblings turn out? Any standout pups? Keep me posted!
Hope everything is great,
Farkas Vom Saltzablick is about to be a dad! We absolutely love
him so much. He is a great dog. I was just looking through your
pics of him. He loves his toys so much. It is hilarious to watch
him drop it into my husbands lap and sit there and stare at it
so intense. I attached a picture of him.
Storm our female is due any day. We had our visit to the vet a
week ago and she has at least 9 pups. I hope they will be as loving
as our dogs. Just wanted to give you that update and to say Thank
you again for the sweetest most playful dogs I have ever had.
The second picture is of Storm. She is also black.

I just wanted to check in and let you know how things were going
with Master Goody. We have had him about 2.5 months now. He is
precisely what you described him to be and is working out extremely
well. Going to the park, kids come up to pet him and he welcomes
it. Most strangers are no problem either- however there have been
a few instances where rather suspicious folks came close to us
and he immediately went into a growl to alert us. We agreed with
him! He does appear to sense potential danger, or even just things
that are very different or out of the ordinary. Once we say "its
ok Goody" he is fine (though once he watched intently until
the man was out of sight, which was good with me).
We are walking/running 3-5 miles per day sometimes more. He loves
it as he is able to visit with several of the neighbor's dogs
along the way. He has only shown aggression to dogs once he has
had it shown to him first. Even with that, he is obedient and
wanting to please me.
Once I get home, he does not want to leave sight of me. Wherever
I am, I can count on being within sight of Goody (even in the
shower, he opens the door just to be reassured I am in there).
He figures things out (he now opens the door and lets himself
in) and enjoys waking me in the morning to two big paws on my
chest and a big good morning lick signaling it is time for us
to go for our walk.
FYI, he has added about 10 lbs (now 83 lbs) and looks beautiful.
Folks have stopped their cars on the street just to take a better
look at him. He really is a great dog and I am most grateful that
we took your recommendation. I am having a blast with him. Best
dog (and we have had 5) I have ever had!
Thought you would enjoy hearing about him. Next time I get some
pictures, I will forward a few your way!
I just thought I would let you know that Echo is doing great!
He absolutely loves the cold and snow we have up here in Chicago
and just went to his first puppy class yesterday. He is already
very good with basic commands (sit, stay, down, etc.) and can
even heal on a lead already!
I attached some recent pics i took of him yesterday.
Dear Mike And Nicolle,
Just wanted to get back to you and thank you again for this
wonderful puppy. Farah is amazingly smart and absolutely loving
with the sweetest disposition I could have ever wanted. Her pedigree
was impressive enough but the reality of this beautiful pup far
surpasses any expectations I had.
Much of the credit for her outstanding personality, I know is
due to her care and the attention you must have showered on her
from the beginning. She arrived in pristine condition from California
and has been a joy every moment since.
I also wanted to thank you for all your kindness and courtesy.
You made working through this purchase, without actually being
able to visit, a very easy process.
Thank you both again for this lovely pup and the graciousness
* I would certainly recommend anyone looking for a GSD to check
out Kreative Kennels. I did and was totally blown away with my
With sincere thanks
