"Thank you so much for selling me this dog, we call him Doc. He is the best pup I have ever owned and really really smart. Thanks for being honest. He's everything you said he would be, including naturally protective. We cant wait to get another one!"
"Echo is amazing! She is so sweet with our new baby boy. We love her!"
"He is wonderful! Growing like crazy and he is so smart! He loves to train and takes it very seriously :) I couldn't have asked for a better pup! I always get asked where I got him because he is so handsome and well behaved."

"We bought a male GSD from Emily Kelty in 2016. He is a large, 90 lb, 10 month old male (still growing).
He is over the chart in intelligence and agility.
We are a one dog family and he loves us like a love sick teenager.
He is 100 percent trustworthy with our kids and babies, even other people's babies. They climb all over him, he follows them anywhere they go and plays their games with them, especially hide and seek.
He knows and welcomes all of our friends and family, even if he's only met them once. Unknown visitors are held at bay with a deep, intimidating bark until we tell him it's ok.
He's always aware of what is going on outside the house, even when he's inside, just by listening.
I've been surprised at how many people are intimidated by him, just because of his breed and look. He's actually very friendly, even to strangers on the street.
Because he is so smart, training is easy. For the same reason, he will constantly test the limits we place on him. Consistency is a must. If he gets away with anything he will remember and do it again.
If you're looking for a family dog, especially with protection and security in mind, these dogs are ideal. Be prepared to keep them for life. I think ours would rather die than go to another home. They shed a lot so get a good vacuum. He has a need to chew and eats rawhide like candy. Those are the only cons I can think of. They're phenomenal animals."

"Our family adopted two GS puppies from Emily over the last two years and we could not be happier with our decision! Both our puppies came home with us healthy and well adjusted for their new homes. Emily made the adoption process easy. She made herself available to answer any and all questions we had before our puppies came home. And after our puppies came home, she checked in on us to make sure the puppies were healthy and adjusting to their new lives well. We could tell she really cares for her puppies and their well being! Because the pups were raised around Emily's beautiful children, they came home well socialized. Training the pups has been relatively easy, they are a quick study. When we take them out on walks and encounter neighbors and small children, they are friendly and well mannered. And lastly, rest assured that by adopting from Emily you will not only be supporting ethical breeding, but will also be making a great new addition to your family!"
"It is my pleasure to recommend Kelty's German Shepherds as the best GSD breeder. They were fast to respond to all my questions and were very knowledgable about the breed. As this was my first GSD all the information they were able to provide was so helpful. Kelty's German Shepherds prides themselves on breeding amazing family dogs with solid temperaments and that is exactly what I got in my pup. Kilo is eager to learn, loyal and the most easygoing mild mannered dog. People often don't believe me when I tell them how young he is because he is so well behaved, and I have no doubt it is due to the excellent breeding and the commitment this family puts into their dogs. He is athletic, intelligent and protective. After buying a puppy from Kelty's GS I am completely sold on the breed and this family, their love and knowledge for the breed shines through in the puppies and dogs they have!"
We love receiving updates!
Talynn is learning how to pack so she can hike with Troy. She was bothered with the pack for about two minutes and then she acted like it was no big deal :-) She is such a happy dog. I get a lot of attention and comments on her intelligence as well as her beauty. Thanks so much, You have top notch puppies!
