Nick was amazing for our family and for our GSD. We would have been a lost cause without his help. Well worth the financial investment!

I am absolutely amazed by I guards customer service! I have nothing but fantastic things to say about them and believe that they truly care for you and your pup! They have been extremely supportive through these difficult times and they are always willing to help whenever I reach out. I wake up every morning extremely happy that I chose I guard to help me find my best friend as I truly don’t think I could have ever found a better companion. They have amazing services that I was fortunate enough to have Teya go to. She was able to play as well as be thoroughly checked by K9 Country Club and Animal Hospital. They also helped me with Teyas training and I don't think I have ever had a dog so well-behaved haha. I do owe one person, in particular, a major thank you as she has done so much for me and that would be Jessi. She would give me consistent updates, pictures, and videos. when It came to the time to get my puppy home she did everything in her power to help make it happen smoothly. Again I owe the whole team at I - guard A massive thank you! Without them, I wouldn’t have found my best friend that I will be creating lots of memories with. I highly recommend I guard to anyone that is looking for there next best friend.

We got in touch with I-Guard over a year ago to start the process of finding a German shepherd that would be a great match for our family. From the very beginning we have felt cared for, listened to, and very much a part of the 'I-Guard family.' Both Nick and Jessi were more than willing to work with us to accomodate our unique situation of finding and training a puppy long-distance from where we had been living in Portland, OR, and having her ready for us when we were settled in our new house here in Spokane. Over the course of the past 6ish months, they have sent us updates, pictures, videos, and coordinated visits for us with Sasha if we happened to be in town house-hunting or visiting family. Before bringing her home, Nick, Jessi, and one of their trainers, Bree, worked with us during several sessions to get us used to her commands and helped Sasha practice walking next to a stroller (she basically did it perfectly from the get-go!)

We have been falling more in love with her by the day, and it already feels like she has been a beloved member of the family for a long time. She is such a calm, smart, and sweet girl!

On the afternoon that we brought her home, we had some roofers replacing our roof, resulting in lots of loud and abrupt sounds. I was worried that the noises would stress Sasha out, given that she was already in a more stressful/new environment (brand new family, 3 young kids and their excitement over getting a dog, new stimuli all around) but to my relief and delight, she barely batted an eyelash at the loud sounds - both from the roofers and my kids! It is very clear that she has been raised in an environment that prepared her for both the expected and unexpected.

She has yet to retreat into her crate (which is available for her in a quiet place in the house) and decided right away to lay down in the middle of the action to be near us and continues to always stay close, regardless of what we are doing or how hectic things are! It is abundantly clear that she loves being around her family, which is of course what we had been hoping for when we decided to trust I-Gaurd to match us with the perfect pup for our family.

We took her for her first walk the evening we brought her home, on which she behaved beautifully. She listened to commands and remained calm and attentive when two of our neighbors' dogs charged us from behind their fence barking loudly. That night, we decided to have her sleep in her crate until she was more acclimated to our home, and we didn't hear a peep out of her all night. She was calm and happy to see us the next morning, and settled down immediately in the middle of our living room where we were all sitting together. She listens well to 'No' if she ever becomes too interested in our kids' toys or something enticing within her reach. She has never tried to jump up on people, counters, etc. and is so calm around our children, even when they are bouncing or running around near her. She is learning the new routines I've been working with her on, like sitting or laying down before being invited out of her crate, out of the car, down steps, etc. She seems very eager to please and is respectful of the rest of the family.

I took her into Home Depot today and she stayed calm as I shopped around the busy store and was very friendly when several people asked if they could pet her. We can't imagine a life before Sasha, because the acclimation period has been so seamless, and she is such a joy to have in our home. If you are looking for a loyal, intelligent, and loving shepherd, and a caring and competent team of people to help you, then look no further than I-Guard International.

We are so impressed with I-Guard International !! My family and I just recently purchased our little puppy Rocky and are in love with him. Jessi is the best!! She is very informative and extremely helpful throughout the whole process. She toured us around the facility (which is amazing) and made us feel like we are apart of their family. Jessi was in constant contact with us on how our puppy was doing prior to him coming home with us. Nick was very welcoming to us and is fantastic with the dogs. We are so excited to be apart of the I-Guard family and are looking forward to adding another I-Guard puppy for our little Rocky. We highly recommend I-Guard International!!

I can't say enough good things about I-Gaurd! Amazing people, amazing dogs. They treat you like family. I mainly have talked with Jessi, she is so sweet and more than helpful. I talked with her when I was ready to get a dog and told her what I was looking for. Hugo is that, and more. I really could not be happier . I won't go anywhere else for a dog ever again.

I love Jessi! She is the perfect person when it comes to customer service and caring for animals. She knows her dogs that's for sure, if ever need help she's the go-to! Nick, from what I've experienced, seems very down-to-earth and loves every minute spend with these animals. Staff has always been welcoming to all animal-lovers. I purchased my puppy here and he is perfect! Thanks guys, you're awesome. 🙂

I highly recommend I-Guard International! We had an amazing experience. I had researched breeders in Washington and Oregon and had contacted several with no response back, but I-Guard called me back within 24 hours. They set expectations up front about how the process worked, communicated regularly, and have kept in touch since we brought our puppy home. The customer service experience was great!And we LOVE our puppy! I had GSDs growing up and this girl exceeds our expectations already! At 8 weeks, she was well on her way to potty trained, she understands several commands, has a very sweet demeanor and gets along great with our other dog, cats, and kids. We had specific needs and I-Guard matched us perfectly with our puppy. We have acreage, wild animals, 4 cats, young and older children, a 5 year old yellow lab who is an alpha female, and lots of friends and their dogs coming and going. Our puppy adapted well from the beginning, she's curious, sweet, eager to please, obedient, easy-going, and intelligent.I-Guard spent time with us and made us feel at home when we picked our puppy up and have checked in often since we brought her home. The boarding and training facility is very clean, spacious, and the staff is professional and friendly. Now they just need a facility in Seattle!We couldn't have asked for a better experience or a better puppy!

Today is my I-Guard puppy’s first birthday! This last year has been so perfect. I have such a sweet, smart, beautiful little baby. I-Guard dogs are something special. My baby has the perfect temperament and is just right for me and my little family. Jessi took extra time with me to make sure I knew exactly what I was getting into with a GSD puppy. She made sure I knew exactly how to care for Ronan from the first day I brought her home AND made sure all the toys and treats I picked out for Ronan were safe for her and exactly what we needed. Best of all, Jessi continues to stay in contact with us and check in on our baby, which I LOVE. Jessi, Nick, and all the staff behind raising these beautiful babies truly love what they do and it shows!
Thank you I-Guard and K9 Country Club for loving my baby!
And a special thanks to Jessi for all the hard work and dedication she puts in to making sure each family that welcomes an I-Guard GSD into their family is well taken care of! 🐾
