Friends I have very exciting news! For the last 3 years I have been in search of a service dog.
I have gotten turned down multiple times because I am not a veteran, my insurance wouldn’t cover it,
or the places that catered to civilians had a 4-6 year waiting list.
I’m very happy to say that with the help of friends I found a trainer with 30 years of experience who is willing to work with me to vest a dog, and change my life.
Today I spent time with the puppies and for the first time in a long time I felt totally calm. In about 4 weeks I will be able to take my doggo home and start training!
Special thanks to Watchman German Shepherds!
Dear George and Jodi,
Denis and I couldn't be happier with Xena! She is a wonderful German Shepherd who we plan to train to be a therapy dog. During the last two weeks, she has developed a great relationship with our 11-year-old Chihuahua. She already sleeps through the night and is doing so well, especially with our granddaughters when they come to visit.
We appreciate all the help and guidance you have provided in choosing her. Xena has exceeded our expectations, as she is smart and such a quick learner. We are so thankful that we found you and your exceptional German Shepherds. Thank you for all the care you provided to us in choosing our puppy. Attached is a picture of our beauty.

We wanted to let you know how happy we are with Sammy. He has exceeded all of our expectations and seems to defy many of the potentially stressful "new puppy" stereotypes for which we've prepared ourselves. He adjusted to his new home very quickly and from the beginning he has slept through the night without whining and is an overall happy, well behaved, and calm pup. Our vet also confirmed he was healthy and has an amazing temperament. We also wanted to thank you for your patience in answering all of our (many) questions throughout the process. We never felt any pressure , and we could tell you only wanted the best outcomes for the pups and your customers.
Here are some pictures of Sammy at 10 weeks.
Thanks for everything!

Just wanted to check in since Koda just passed his 1 year mark in
September. Seems to have started growing again, had hit a plateau and
wasn't eating much. He has been eating his full breakfast and dinner
now and when I weighed him the other night he was up to 72 pounds. Not
sure how much bigger he is going to end up being.
At just past his 6 month mark we sent him for a two week training with
off leash k-9, actually sent him and our lab. He walks amazingly now
and is right on cue, and always eager to please.
He has been trouble free medical wise, think hes finally figuring out
his legs and he can run with some speed now.
Attached a couple pics for you.
I hope everything is good, Skip is doing great, lots of energy and very obedient. He gets compliments everywhere! The weather is getting nicer, I will take photos soon to share with you. Please go ahead and use the first photo, just not the second one.
We have received so many compliments on Aghi. Our vet said that he is a really nicely built dog, great topline and movement. Our trainer wanted to know his pedigree...said that he already shows confidence after his first class!
Most importantly WE love him. I will send some pics. He is already 27 pounds, up from 15.
Kraken is soooo loving, especially with the children – he adores them, and they are so proud and devoted to him! He spends hours walking with them, playing with them, sitting with them…anything they do, he is game! We love him, plain and simple.
For all his playful sweetness, he is absolutely protective. While my husband was away for two weeks overseas, someone tried to get into our house at 10:30 at night. Hopefully it was a case of mistaken house, but I don’t know because whoever it was took off. When I heard the door try to be opened, Kraken was at the door before I could even get out of my chair.
I have never seen him before or since like that, and I am so grateful for his size, sound, strengthand loyalty.
Thank you, George, for giving us the most wonderful dog in Kraken!!
"Hi George, hope you and your family are having a great spring season. Jared and I wanted to send you some pictures of Yukon. He is getting really big (60 pounds at 4.5 months). He is the most wonderful dog and we love him so much. He has a great temperament-very protective but also really playful
and friendly with other dogs and people. His coloring has changed so much we thought you would enjoy seeing him."

I attached a couple of recent pics. The first one was taken yesterday. second one is a month
old. Not a great pic but you can see how good he is
in the middle of those kids. Not a lot of dogs would be comfortable in the situation. He Is !!!
Tucker is doing great! He absolutely loves kids! He goes to all of mysons practices and just cant wait to go run with them when practice is over.
We have completed 2 phases of obedience training. Beginnerobediance and Phase II Off Leash. He was great! Very willing and eager to train.
He loves training! We are currently taking classes to get the Canine Good Citizen title. As usual he is doing great!
Thanks again for a truly amazing dog!
Thanks for the great pictures of the dogs as newborns.
I've included a few pictures that we have of our (no longer) puppy, Duke. He is doing great and constantly staying busy chasing deer around the yard, playing with the neighbors dogs, and being taken on runs in the park. As my sister said, "Duke is an awesome dog who loves playing and meeting new people and animals. He is super intelligent, knowing how to open doors, give people hugs, and sometimes throw some punches. He is a great dog and I love him."
As the one picture shows, Duke's favorite spot is sitting on an ottoman looking like he's ready to have a serious conversation. If not there, Duke's second favorite spot is sitting in the back of the car hoping that someone will take him on a ride.
Duke is one great dog and we are so thankful for him. Not only is he a very handsome dog, his intelligence and overall attitude makes it impossible not to love him.
Thank you for everything George and Watchman GSD,

There is never a dull moment with Max. Loves being outdoors at all times and loves eating and playing around in the snow. I think the best part sometimes it’s when we are talking to him and he just tilts his head. Always trying to please us. George does a fantastic job with breeding German shepherds. He communicated with us constantly giving us updates on how the puppies and dogs were doing. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience.
"Hi George, I saw you had another litter. Our pup from your first litter is doing awesome. I couldn't have asked for a better dog. Nice Job. I will spread the word on this litter. Our dog is almost finished level 2 obedience at the Canine Academy in Pendel, PA. We are working on off leash, and our trainer who trains Schutzhund said our dog has a perfect temperament! She very much likes this dog! See attached recent picture of Tucker at 6 months of age."
Good morning George,
Just wanted to let you know that this little guy has been amazing. The other two dogs welcomed him and they became their own little pack.
He was a trooper on the ride home. Stopped twice and he did his business both times. When we go home, we took him forfirst time being walked on a leash he was a little slow but thereafter walked like the other two and likes his walks.
He seems to have a sense to go the bathroom outside. Only one accident and that was because my daughter waited too long after he woke from a nap, and I told her he needed to go out. Lol
Last night i took him for a walk around 12:30 and he slept on his bed in a pen until 6:30 when someone texted me. Have to turn my phone on vibrate at night. Then Took him out, he did his thing and back to sleep until 8:30.
Thank you so much for the joy you have brought my family. So far he’s amazing!
Vergel is doing well! He is a bundle of energy, and getting along well with Daisy .
Ears started standing up yesterday!
Hope Sherman is doing well!
THANKS for the pictures!!
Reilly seems to have adjusted well. Sleeping in crate, not crying much and has adapted well with two of our three pets. One cat seem to be a little afraid of her. Overall, things are going very well. Will keep you informed as to Reilly's progress.
Jimmy and Carole
Everything is going great!! He's a little trouble maker, but so darn cute and cuddly. Those pictures turned out great! You can use them on your site.
I'll be posting more pictures of Rick on Facebook to keep you updated :)
Hey George. Hunter is doing great!
He's always off chewing on something and playing with his toys.
When he's not doing that he likes to sleep.
Everywhere we go he gets loads of compliments, and he's always very friendly to everyone.
