I have used Nick as both a dog trainer for our Doberman Pinscher and as a breeder when we purchased one of his excellent German Shepherd puppies. Our new little girl is all that we expected and is a great fit for the family. She is a confident, loyal, intelligent, boisterous, fun and healthy puppy – everything a GSD should be. Nick has truly done admirable work with this excellent breed!
Nick was also great to work with when he was employed by us as our dog trainer. He was an effective practitioner who was able to communicate well and more importantly deliver to us the results we wanted. I was thoroughly impressed with both the quality of his work and the speed of the results and I did not hesitate to recommend him to my friends and I would not hesitate to recommend him to you.

My name is Karin Jacobs and I have never owned a dog. I have always been a cat lover, having owned cats for 20 years. In October 2008, tragedy struck, I lost my husband unexpected on vacation in Hawaii of a massive stroke. My life turned upside down.
Still in a fog in December, a co-worker referred me to I-Guard when I expressed interest in owning a dog. I had no idea who Nick was, but I quickly discovered Nick was someone I could trust and his amazing knowledge of dogs. I wanted a female dog, but after talking with Nick for some length, he said I needed a “alpha male” to balance my life. I have two kitties, Jake and Elwood, and Nick was correct. The kitties are warming up to Tank daily!!
Nick was amazingly correct again! He had one puppy left and had 5 people wanting “Tank”, and I was the lucky one that Nick chose me to be Tank’s new Mom!
Tank is amazing, he has become my best friend. I swing with Tank on my porch swing as I read the “word” to him! Tank is so smart, I know he understand everything I read to him because he is now kneeling with me every night when I say my prayers!! (well…almost! I’m sure Nick can train Tank to do this if I asked – Nick being the puppy whisperer!)
I am so glad I met Nick, I know he and his family will be in my life forever!
Nick: THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! — I LOVE MY PUPPY TANK!!! I call him my “monster puppy” as he seems to grow every day!!
There is NO way anyone can go wrong with purchasing a puppy from Nick – He truly is an amazing man who really knows his dogs!”
Thank you Nick!!

One of the things that stands out most about I-Guard International is Nick’s unconditional devotion to his dogs. After first meeting him, my husband and I both thought, “Wow, he really knows his stuff and loves the German Shepherds he breeds.” Over the past year, we’ve come to understand why. Living only one town over from Nick, we’ve not only been able to experience how incredible our dog Faira has turned out, but how unique all of the dogs from I-Guard become. We’ve met person after person who own one of I-Guard’s dogs and say the same thing: “I’ve never in my life seen a dog quite like this one.” Nick’s dogs are sound in temperament, extremely intelligent, seem to have an ability to understand just what their owners want, and then do it. They’re great around kids, make excellent family companions, and can be taught almost anything. If you’ve seen the pictures, you know Nick constantly produces some of the very best looking shepherds, too.
Nick has always been there to answer our every question, give advice, or help us in any way he knew how. He takes pride in his dogs and devotes his time in making sure all the owners of I-Guard puppies are just as well taken care of.
As much as we have to say about I-Guard’s breeding program, his training credentials are just as high. Thanks to Nick, our dog, Faira, is about to complete her training as a personal protection dog, has begun tracking work, and is very skilled in obedience. Within the year Nick will have taken her far enough to be able to compete in Schutzhund competitions with some of the very best dogs from around the nation. Aside from Faira, we’ve watched Nick transform dogs of all types and sizes. He’s turned vicious Pit Bulls into calm, well-mannered companions, shy puppies into strong and confident protection dogs, high-energy ankle biters into sweetly behaved lapdogs, and has trained numerous service dogs to accommodate all types of disabilities. He’s so confident with his program that he even donated a puppy to serve on the force of the Spokane Police Department.

I would highly recommend I-Guard International to anyone seeking a top quality German Shepherd or for expert training for dogs of any breed.
Thank you Nick!

Nick Lungu of I-Guard International saved our dog from being put to death, through his training by transforming my Pit Bull PeWee from an aggressive, domineering, excitable, jumping, biting, barking guy into a well mannered behaved family member.
PeWee, an American Staffordshire Bull Terrier, more commonly known as a Pit Bull is no longer to be feared and avoided, but instead praised and admired for his good behavior by every one that meets him. The transformation is amazing. Nick is a remarkable dog trainer.
Thank you Nick, we recommend you to anyone who needs dog training. You are the dog whisperer in Pullman WA.
