Our dog, Feller, has been home exactly a year now and we couldn’t be happier with the outcome. We definitely need to continue to do our job but the training was instilled in our pup after his 6 weeks with Thomas.

After carefully studying for 8 years Thomas Sauerhoefer and his technics to train GSDs I've finally decided to dropped off my 4 month old dark sable GSD with him on 03/26/2022, Since i feed Logan Puppy food he recommended i bring Logans puppy food. I am confident Thomas will take care of my dog. Advance Obedience. I will get back to you all to let you know the results in 6 weeks or less. 05/08/2022 UPDATE: Picked up Logan and as expected...Well trained, German Commands. Dog responds instantly to commands. Def.

This story starts out with my daughter adopting a German Shepherd from the Butte Humane Society. We had her for 2 weeks and she was a handful, would not listen, would not calm down and in general, was a dog that had no discipline training or attention for the first 2 years of her life. She had run away so many times from the previous owner that they finally left her at the shelter for someone to adopt. She was supposed to be my daughter's dog, but that changed after 2 more years and she became my best companion due to my med... read more

Thomas sold me a show line puppy but told me she was working line. If you are extremely knowledgeable about GSDs then maybe it will work out better for you. I guess I didn't do enough research. I was bent over because I don't have 20+ years experience. I love my dog but I was specifically looking for a protection dog. I trusted Thomas and thought that he was a friend. Big mistake. My advice, stay away. EDIT: I am taking Hilde to get her hips and elbows checked out. I will update on the results.

Thomas is known for his excellent work with German Shepherds but we needed him to train our stubborn Japaneses Akita. Thankfully, Thomas welcomed our dog into his training and WOW we were ecstatic about the results. When we dropped off our dog he was tearing apart our house - carpet, drapes you name it. When he returned from his training with Thomas, he was so much better mannered, listened to commands and is such a joy to have around. We don't even need to put him in his kennel when we leave the house anymore. We conti... read more
