    Had the best experience ever buying a German shepherd puppy from American K9. The first time I called, Krys was so friendly and gave me so much information about the puppies. Krys allowed us to come visit the puppies at 7 in the morning to accommodate our schedule. She also let us come visit the puppies multiple times before we could take one home. She opened up her home to us like she had known us for years. We got to meet the mother of the puppies and she offered for us to meet the father. She has all the information about the blood line. Krys invests so much into her puppies. Ours was basically potty trained the first day we brought her home. I'm beyond pleased with the whole process of getting our dog. Anyone would be lucky to get a puppy from a american k9!

    I got my Working Line Shepherd from Kore and have been impressed with not only quality of the dog, but how prepared they left us on the day of pickup. When I first heard about their litter I was doing my annual training with the Marine Corps and wasn't readily available. Kore not only allowed me time to make the selection I wanted but also provided a very generous military discount. Kore's door was and is always open throughout the entire process. At American K9 there is a genuine interest in the livelihood of the dog and the owner. I'd love to work with them again, would recommend them to anyone, and the product is worth every penny!

    Krys is one of the best in the business. You can see the quality and pride she takes in her work. While word of mouth is awesome, the best way to know that the 5 star rating is true is to experience American K9's high quality services as well as professionalism that goes above and beyond. You will walk away condident and well informed. Be prepared to recommend Kore to a friend or family member.

    Excellent people, excellent dogs, and definitely the company I'll go to for all future needs.
