Perfect! Love this dog John. You nailed it with Qaro. He is such a perfect gentlemen inside the house and is amazing with the kids. Perfect mellow dog. But when it’s time to work or protect he snaps into that role immediately.
Awesome awesome dog.
I live in a resort community in Scottsdale where many of the residents go elsewhere during our hot summer months. Several of the communities in our area began to experience a rash of thefts of expensive patio furniture and pool accessories from unoccupied homes. One afternoon I was at home and my German Shepherd, Ajax, went to the rear exit, appearing eager to go outside. I opened the door, but instead of heading right toward his grassy recreational area, he went left toward our side gate. Almost immediately, I heard loud barking and growling. Fearing that he had encountered a coyote, bobcat or rattlesnake in the yard, I ran outside toward the commotion. I saw a man jumping over our retaining wall and running toward a waiting truck at the base of our driveway. Ajax had apparently alerted to the sound of the gate opening and foiled some type of theft. Just as it appears on the German Shepherd Watchdogs website video of Ajax, he is an exceptional property protector.
We have loved having Gizmo both as part of the family and keeping away those not wanted. We caught on our cameras two men who approached the house and quickly left once Gizmo made himself known!! So glad to have such a well trained dog. He’s great!!
I started in the sport of Schutzhund many years ago and John Riboni was one of the first people I met. At that time John was a “decoy/helper” here in Southern California and would help us train our dogs in all phases of the sport and would always stress “temperament” as one of the most important qualities to look for in your dog.
Over the years I have purchased many dogs from John and to this day I can say he has an uncompromising ability to pick the right dog for the right person and their needs. In each and every case not only are they good looking dogs but all have the perfect temperament to fit that person’s situation, in my case it is the sport of Schutzhund and family.
Any of the dogs I have obtained from John are both working sport dogs and family dogs at the same time that can assimilate well with family and our 14 grandchildren. That is a must and John has never missed! Would I select John to buy my next dog?…In a heartbeat!!! He’s the best at what he does.
I am a K9 Officer for a Northern California Police Department. My Department is one of several in the area that use John Riboni’s talents in dog selection and training. John has a great knack for putting the right dog with the right person.
Knowing this, when I was assigned as a K9 handler I only had one request of him when selecting my dog. I knew that whatever dog he picked would do the job well, so I asked for a dog that would do well around my kids. His choice was a perfect match.
My dog, Drago, has turned into an excellent Police dog since we began patrolling together in 2006. He is also a wonderful family dog at home. He can go from a night of necessary aggressive behavior chasing and deterring criminals, to cuddling with my girls at home. He is even friendly and safe around the many guests we have in our home. I feel safe knowing that my partner will protect me at work and protect my family at home, but not be unpredictable when we have friends over.
John found the perfect dog for me and would be my only choice for referral should anyone be looking for a family protection dog .
Our family dog, Alpha, has been such a great addition to our home! Alpha came from Germany, and she is well-behaved, affectionate and extremely watchful over all of us. German Shepherd Watchdogs found the perfect dog for our lifestyle and needs when they brought Alpha to us. Having Alpha in our home gives us peace of mind, because she won’t let an unwelcome stranger near us. She knows the difference between a threatening or unexpected presence, and just a welcome visitor. Someone tried to come through our gate onto our back property unannounced while we were gone for a couple of hours, and Alpha quickly backed them right off the property and out the gate! She didn’t bite the stranger, she just got close, barked, stared him down and backed him up. He was coming to look at trees, but he hadn’t told us he was coming and Alpha did not know him —so, she did exactly what we would have wanted her to do. We couldn’t be happier with our loving companion and we are really grateful to German Shepherd Watchdogs for finding Alpha for our family.
We’ve been involved with German Shepherds and the sport of schutzhund for 17 years. When it was time to find a dog that could be a top sport dog, as well as a family companion, we called John Riboni. John was professional, polite, courteous, and most of all, attentive to our wish list as we described the perfect dog for our family. When Ayk arrived, we knew immediately that he was a great fit for us. Ayk has been, and continues to be, an invaluable addition to our family . . . a dog that excels in the sport we do, but above all, is a family member and companion.
THANKS SO MUCH John for giving us the opportunity to care for such an exceptional dog.
If you are looking for a quality dog, you have to find a quality business to buy from. John Riboni and German Shepherd Watchdogs are that business. They are what they say they are and so are their dogs. They are top notch quality. They match your needs / personality / environment / schedule with the right dog that fits your lifestyle —it is amazing how they do this. John knows these dogs, their bloodlines, their owners/breeders nationally and internationally. This company knows EVERYTHING about the dog that you want. What I like the most about John and German Shepherd Watchdogs is the follow through service throughout the life of your dog. They promptly answer your questions about the various aspects of your dog’s life nutrition, health, training, exercise, shots, leashes, collars, etc. John and German Shepherd Watchdogs debunk the myths that surround the training, nutrition, and medical care of German Shepherds. John remembers each dog like they are his own children and cares about them long after they leave the professional training facility. When you buy a dog from John you gain two quality friends for life, John and your dog(s).
What began as a search for a protection dog ended with an integral addition to our family. Through a personal interview we articulated our family’s needs and Mr. Riboni of German Shepherd Watchdogs was able to match us up with the perfect dog. Isko is a courageous, loyal, obedient dog with a great temperament. He has proven himself to be as gentle and trustworthy around young children as well as elderly grandparents. My family could not be happier with our protector, friend and family member Isko.
