Puppies Bred with Heart
Happy family collecting their puppy

"When they say “completing families one pup at a time” , these are not just words. This is a heartfelt sentiment. I purchased my German Shepard from them when she was a puppy and she is now a beautiful, sweet tempered 4 year old dog. I have utilized their services such as boarding consistently over the years because to this family, their dogs aren’t just business- they are family and each one is treated with love. It is incredibly rare to find such individuals who view their dogs as more than just “business”. Cindy Kelly consistently goes above and beyond to make sure that each pup finds their right person. She and her husband are generous, compassionate people who have brought so much love into my life with simple acts of kindness that other “businesses” would not bother to do. For example, a phone call or text to reassure me that my dog was happy and having the time of her life while being boarded while I went on the first vacation I’ve ever had or taking the time to ALWAYS contact me back when I’ve had questions about my dog, her behavior (first Shepard I’ve owned) or to any other questions I’ve had over the years. In short, their family has taken a vested interest in mine that is so much more than business. Their dedication to enhancing education about this breed as well as the work they do offering various types of training is truly inspiring. Additionally, they are very supportive of our troops and train dogs for various types of service. I highly recommend their puppies, dogs, training and boarding services as it’s done with excellence, caring and love. They definitely completed my family and we are better for it. I encourage you to contact them and experience yourself their puppies and the people. 5 stars all the way around!!!!"

"We could not be happier with Regis Regal. Our first dog Julie (that we purchased years ago) was trained by Cindy as a diabetic alert dog. Julie was a perfect dog from day one, everyone who met her loved her instantly. She was so well trained we could leave a steak out and leave and she wouldn't touch it, but best of all she saved my son from dangerous and potentially deadly low blood sugars on numerous occasions. We just recently purchased our second dog from Cindy and could not be happier!! Ruger is perfect in every way!! Cindy matched us each time with the perfect dog for our family and we will always be grateful."

"We just got Tank back from his 5 weeks training. We can't say enough about how excited we are with the outcome. Tank was more calm if I may say. Don't get me wrong, he was still that aggressive alpha male that he was meant to be, but he also came back with the obedience of a well trained soldier. That my friends is what an experienced professional trainer can do.

Cindy did not rush training, she keep us informed throughout the entire process as she promised. This has been a ride of our lives since we welcomed Tank into our family and we are still learning and growing. (along with Tank) 🙂 Oh how we look forward in taking this journey because the outcome can only be sweet."

"Very caring owners and employees! Thankful for all the knowledge Cindy and Clark have taught our family! We got the BEST dog ever from here! Highly recommend taking a visit if you're looking for a quality German shepherd."

"Just got Gretchen back from her 6 week training session. Very happy with the results. We added her to our family from Regis Regal in March when she was 12 weeks old. Cindy and Clark have been great to deal with. I highly recommend Regis Regal."

"My family and I stopped in on memorial day unexpected not know what to expect. We were greeted by Cindy the owner and were completely WOWED! We took home our pup and have had only good thoughts and things to say since we left. Cindy shared so much time and knowledge with us before we left. I have looked over some of the reviews and don’t believe some of the negativity. Cindy was very HUMBLE and KIND. As we packed up and got ready to head off she sent me off with a hug and the sweetest pup. Her daughter was outside playing with a few friends who also were kind and respectful. We will miss our pup when she goes for training but can’t wait to see her full potential! I HIGHLY recommend Regis Regal!"

"Cindy has been nothing but wonderful to my family, during our process of finding a service dog for my Type 1 Diabetic. Her honesty helped us decide the proper dog for the job. She also has been nothing but helpful and available to us with any questions or concerns we have as we embark the training journey. She is willing to work with us and accommodate to our schedule since we live 3 1/2 hours away from her. I highly recommend her as a qualified and professional breeder who is very educated in the process of breeding and training."

"My family has a beautiful German Shepherd from Regis Regal and has been everything we’ve hoped for. We currently have two children under eighteen months and he’s so loyal and gentle. Axle just turned two years old and will be an important part of my kids lives as they grow up."

"Wonderfully bred dogs! Evette was recommended for our living situation and she couldn't be better trained or have a better temperament. My 10 month old daughter crawls all over her pulling on her hair and Evette just kisses her! What a wonderful addition to our family!! Thank you Regis Regal!!"

~ Melissa Reilly

"My dog Finn has been an incredible addition to my life. He is amazingly smart, empathetic, sweet and everything you could possibly hope for in a german shepherd (not to mention, he's gorgeous!). Since I met Cindy Kelly, she has been nothing but kind, supportive, and understanding. Explaining everything I needed to know about buying a new puppy. I am so so thankful to her and her family for their friendship and for introducing me to my best friend!!"
