Winter is doing amazing! She sits for food and water, when the door opens to go out side, and she can even stay, when her dad is poassing by. She is so Smart. She is only 11 weeks old here in the photo and she is a giant!  So SMART! And, NO jumping when we come home and she sits to be petted.  We love her, the kids love her and her brother Storm loves her. Thank You!

Just wanted to let you know that our pup has grown to be a beautiful healthy girl.
She is the sweetest most loving dog and is an important part of our family.
Thank you for such a fine specimen of a shepherd.

The Stuart's, Kohala Hawaii

She is a jewel!  Perfect in the car.  Eats well(!). Slept through the entire night.  Gets along well with Bella.  The 2 of them slept by Tom's feet while he watched tv - one of them occasionally chewed on his toes.  We gave the someone a Nylabone to chew on instead.  She likes that, Bella's tennis ball and a dragon that we got at Costco that is almost as big as she is.  She attacks it fiercely and then drags it around.   Thank you.

The Trull's, Kona, HI

It was wonderful to meet you in person today and loved seeing your facility.
Puppy was amazing all the way home and slept most of the way. She has been an adorable bundle of joy and all three of us have fallen in love with her instantly. She is doing great and is more fabulous then we could have ever dreamed of.

Thank you so much for making it happen!

Sarah, 1-24-2015, Honolulu

Hi Laurel, I just wanted to update you on Bruce aka Right Green from H Litter…
 He is doing FANTASTIC! He is 7 months now and a healthy 55 pounds. He has been raw fed since the day we got him and is doing great on it. He knows sit, platz, hier, bring, and through( sits between my legs) (stay is expected with all commands until his “yes” release cue). We are working on fuss, steh, and proper leash manners. We hope to get him into Schutzhund when he is a little older. He is very food motived so training is fairly easy with him most of the time. Thank you so much for our wonderful boy, we couldn’t be more happy with him.

Rev. Captain Sheoli Makara, M.A. (Kailua-Kona Hawaii)

Anyone considering bringing a German Shepherd dog into their family, contact the Alpha K-9 Kennels.

From my first conversation with Laurel Young, the owner/operator, I knew she was the perfect person to help me acquire my pup. She truly cares about matching the right dog to the right family. Her level of integrity in which she runs her business and services she provides is matched by her vast knowledge that gives reassurance and comfort to her clients.

Laurel carefully makes certain that the prospective breeding pair both have clean bills of health before she allows them to mate which produces healthy, strong pups. She gives up to date progress reports on the “moms” once they conceive and continues giving updates throughout the entire process including photos of the parents.
When the pups are born, she sends personal emails with photos. Then with a discerning eye, Laurel watches the pups and provides information to help make the best selection for what one is looking for in their dog.

There are so many really nice things Laurel does throughout the process. To mention all of the kindnesses here may take away from your experience of delight and surprise.I’ll just say that she provides truly excellent, professional yet friendly and thoughtful services, which is what you want during such a deeply personal process.

My puppy is healthy, happy and adjusted immediately to me and her new environment. I attribute this calm transition to all Laurel does in preparation for the puppies move to their forever home.

I whole heartedly recommend Laurel Young of Alpha K-9 Kennels to find the best choices in German Shepherd dogs and dog services.

John, Nick Weezy and Dazel Kula Maui 2012

Nick and I would be delighted if you used the video in your web site.
Yes, Dazel is a fun loving dog. Always ready to please, with a great attitude. To help her with her jumping,
we watch her weight carefully, feeding 3 measured meals a day. Don't want any excess weight on her hips.
( Although, I think she would rather play Frisbee than eat). She and Wheezy often romp together with "puppy" play,
which is nice for both of them.

Jet (Q litter) is doing amazing...growing everyday it seems. He is just so dang smart. We do a little training everyday and I keep forgetting he is only 3.5 months old. He will "heal" almost the whole way on our walk, right up to the part when we are near the house and he knows it so he gets ahead and pulls a little, but it is less and less each walk. He will also do a sit/down stay with me about 15 feet away. I also tried, in the house, a sit stay with me going around the corner for about 5 seconds...lol...he did so good!!! He is amazing and focused, a little lazy on his sit, but then again he is only 3.5 months old. All the training is with his food, again amazing dog!!!! Thank you so much for everything!!!
