Can't say enough about how great Nick was throughout the entire process of getting our first dog Wiggins. Nick asked what we wanted in a dog and we got exactly what we asked for, she loves going on hikes with us. We recently moved to Colorado and the litter we were scheduled for wasn't going to be ready until after we had left, causing us to have to take a trip back to Spokane. But he was able to bump us up to a different litter and get us a puppy the day before we moved. We can't thank them enough for that. This shows how much they care for their customers and are willing to do anything for us. We keep saying, Wiggins is so great, how can we get any other type of dog? We will be back, even if it means a long distance trip and would recommend them to anyone, even fellow out-of-staters.

We have been with I-Guard since we got our first German Shepherd, Jack, in 2013. The trainer that gave us our dog, Nick, has been helping us immensely since then. He has gone into great depths to help us with training Jack. We have also been helping Nick with fostering and we are very happy with the dog, Qasha, we have received. Nick and I-Guard as a whole have always been there for us. My overall experience with them was very positive. I definitely would recommend them to everyone.

Nick has been awesome through the experience of me getting my first dog. He breeds one of a kind germans that look beyond belief! Not only did we get a beautiful looking dog but one that has the best temperament. Vena is only 6 months old but she knows all her basic commands and is not a cannon on the loose. She is very calm and friendly towards other dogs and humans. I could not have asked for a better experience even after receiving her. If there is every a problem I just leave nick a message at his work and I have an answer within that day. Not to mention I swear nick is a dog whisperer, he knows how to train a dog and get them to respect you while still loving you. If there is ever an issue with training nick knows how to correct it and in a timely manner! If you're looking for a top of the line/one of a kind dog this is the place to go! So far based off of my research no other breeder in the area has match up to all the things Nick and I-guard can offer!

First I must say the price of these dogs scared me! Second.... this puppy was worth every cent! I've only had it for three days and already he's displaying signs of exceptional intelligence (this is my fifth dog and the eighth that I've lived with). He's not only smart, his temperament is great and he's absolutely beautiful! I Guard's facility is immaculate. One would expect to see dog hair, some dirt, etc. within a dog breeding/training facility but not here. the floors, walls, ramps, stairs... even the bathrooms for people were clean as a whistle. Nick, the owner, was extraordinary in his knowledge of the breed and applied absolutely no pressure to buy. He answered all my questions and I got an extremely honest vibe off of him. His staff was knowledgeable and helpful as well. If you are in the market for a new dog, do yourself a favor and consider this an option. I drove six hours to see and purchase this puppy and I would do it again in a heartbeat. Great facility, great dog! Thanks Nick!!!!!

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!

Nick is incredible! Took my dog Olla in after she was having trouble eating and he was able to not only find us a food she loves but was also able to help us find fun ways to make her time to eat fun! He is incredibly professional and prompt when it comes to answering any questions you might have. His German Sheppards are one of a kind! You will never find a dog like the ones that Nick breeds!

I am a single mom with two kids we lost our 8 year old large breed dog last spring. My kids and I were heart broken. We decided to adopted two small rescue Jack Russell’s, but due to their background they really do not want to play or spend time with my kids. They’re not mean, just not interested. I looked through the shelters to find a large dog because my 9 year old son really wanted his dog due to the divorce and our other dog passing he needed something more to love and I knew it. I am aware shelters have GREAT dogs however they could not tell me anything about these pups that are all coming in from Southern CA. I was brutally attacked by a large dog in my late twenties which makes me very nervous around dogs I don't know. Also being a single mom, and having the two dogs that have a few issues we are still working on, I had a hard time bring one home because I could never take it back. I decided I needed to determine really what breed I wanted. I looked up different breeds and settled on a German shepherd. I called their specific rescues with no luck and not much interest in me. I called up breeders and time and time again all they wanted was my money they were not interested in letting me know their breeding program or having a real conversation. These kinds of breeders are how I have the two JR and I would never give money to them EVER. I was at a dead end then I came across I-Guard International Site. I emailed through the site a few questions and Nick responded and we setup a time to meet. I explained my situation. Nick told me all about his breeding program. He answered all my questions I had. He has beautiful clean facilities and you can tell he LOVE his dogs and the breed. He showed me two 10 week old puppies that were the calmest well-tempered pups I had ever been around. I did fall in love with one long haired little girl however this was for my son and I wasn’t sure 10 weeks was something I could really do at this time. Then Nick told me about a 4 month old that he had. The pup had training, was potty trained, crated trained and new commands (enough for a 4 month old ;-)) He had been adopted already and Iguard had kept him to be trained. After the training the family that had paid a large deposit on him decided they didn't want him. I WANTED HIM. Nick let me know he was supposed to be being adopted the next morning. He said if the people come in and did get him I could have him. I knew this was the dog I had been looking for I also knew it was a long shot because they would only have to pay the difference from the deposit owed. Nick called the next day and let me know that he had spoken to the people that were going to buy him about me and the very kind people determined they would adopt a younger puppy instead if I really wanted the 4 month old. I was ecstatic yes I came right down and got him. I surprised my kids with him that night. They named him Max. Max for being now 6 months old is the kindest, sweetest, well-tempered, easy going, fun and most intelligent dog. He is the best family pet and we love him. I will never adopt a GS/dog from anyone else ever. We are blessed to have such an amazing dog and Nick made it happen. Now Max needs to like fetching just a little more and we will be set ;-)! Thank you Nick - Robyn, Logan & Allyson
