We always love to hear the stories of our puppies and their new owners. Here are some of the testimonials.

Waylon von Hügelblick (W2 litter)
D'Atze von Hügleblick x Planka vom Wällerhorst

Prior to getting my Hillview puppy, I had two male German Shepherds that I had attempted IPO with and neither of them were very good for the sport. I thought I had done a good bit of research when buying my first GSD. Boy was I wrong! I bought him out of champion bloodlines but his health is poor, he only has one testicle, his hips and elbows are bad and his temperament is absolutely horrible. I knew by the time he was 2 years old that I wanted another GSD, but this time I was looking for a working line puppy. Without doing any research at all, an opportunity presented itself. I brought home my second GSD at the age of 16 weeks. He had never been socialized, he was dirty, stinky and covered in fireants (I felt like I was rescuing him). As he got older we thought he had potential for the sport. I was ecstatic when he got his BH at the age of 2. Well, now he's almost 5 years old and has several failed attempts at an IPO 1 in his scorebook.

After all of the experiences that I had with my first two GSDs, I knew what to look for in number three. This time I researched bloodlines like crazy and I kept getting drawn back to Hillview Kennels. Finally, I had made my decision... I wanted a female puppy from Layla von Hügleblick. She seemed like the whole package. So, I was ready to go for it! I contacted Carrie through her website looking for information on Layla's next breeding. I told her exactly what I was looking for in my next puppy. Carrie called me later that day and said that she had puppies available that matched my description in a D'Atze x Planka litter. With D'Atze being a full brother to Layla, I knew I would still be getting exactly what I wanted. Plus, Planka is an amazing female as well. Hearing about Carrie's reputation for matching owners with their ideal puppy, I had confidence in her selecting the right puppy for me.

Several weeks later, my husband and I went to pick up Waylon at the Fohl's home in Nashville. Carrie and Blake were so welcoming. It felt like we had known them for years. When we saw Waylon and her litter mates for the first time, we were impressed with how clean and healthy all of the puppies looked. All of the dogs there were treated as part of their family, not like a means to a paycheck as we had seen with other breeders. Every dog was well taken care of and loved by the whole family. It was comforting knowing that my new girl got the best start in life that any puppy could.

Now that we've had Waylon for nearly a month, I can honestly say that Carrie hit the nail on the head with this puppy. She is everything that I ever wanted in a GSD. Her prey drive is amazing! Her confidence is like nothing I have seen before in a young puppy! She has a sweet disposition but can be a little spitfire too! She has responded well to the basic training that I have been doing with her. Within a weeks time, Waylon was doing sit, platz, stand and place. By week two she was working on recalls and retrieving. She is also doing puppy tracks with articles and I could not be more pleased with her progress in such a short amount of time. Our club's helper (also a Police K9 handler and trainer) just loves her to death. She has full, calm grips, plus she is really fast. On top of all that, she is absolutely beautiful.

I could not have been more satisfied with this entire experience. Carrie and Hillview Kennel are first class in my book. I am so honored to be part of the Hillview family!
