Hi Jason and Lisa,

Its been about 3 months since I last checked in and I just wanted to send a quick update of how Yogi is doing. 

First off, as this is the most immediate comment I receive from anyone he meets, he's an absolute stud. He was adorable as a tiny pup, but he's beginning to grow into one of the most handsome dogs I've seen. His markings are super clear, and his face / head / expressions are awesome. He's beginning to fill out more and more as each day passes. We had him at the vet for a checkup this past Tuesday, and he's already weighing in at about 45 lbs (though he still thinks he's a 14 lb lap dog)!

His temperament is also fantastic. Whether it's strangers, other dogs (big or small), or children he seems to have a natural understanding for how to approach and how physically to play. He will also allow you to do absolutely anything to him. We've had him to the vet several times for random checkups and vaccinations, and they're impressed each time at how well behaved he is.

We have been working with him consistently on a daily basis (socialization, individual classes, and group classes) and he tends to pick up very quickly on simple commands and even random tricks. Sit, stay, down, come, bang, paw, watch, heel, and be-a-bear are all second nature to him (assuming he's interested).

Now, he's (we've) still has quite a bit of work ahead of him. He's house trained, but doesn't yet have a way of telling us he needs to go out. He also has a knack for chewing things he shouldn't be, and still requires near constant attention. I think most of this can be attributed to his puppy energy and ADD nature, but it's still a work in progress. That said, he is fantastic, and with everything taken into account, I think he will make a tremendous therapy dog in the next year+.

I just wanted to thank you again for providing me this opportunity to welcome him to my family. He is very much loved, and I could not have asked for anything more.

Thanks again,
Josh and Yogi

Dear Lisa and Jason

When we were looking for a reputable breeder in our area we were fortunate to find you both. 

Lisa and Jason were friendly and accommodating, allowing us to come visit the puppies anytime we wanted.

We picked up our male on April 28, 2010 and couldn't be happier.  Keenon is energetic, playful and SMART! 

He is such a beautiful boy who is sometimes too smart for his own good.  Ohhhh did I mention his temperament. He is a very friendly dog and loves people.

When you purchase a dog from Lisa and Jason (Von Elite Kennels) you become part of the family.

Dear Lisa and Jason,

Thank you so much for letting us bring “Hoya” into our home and hearts.  He’s a very happy and healthy puppy, who adores and loves to play with his older sister “Savanah”.  Hoya is a handsome Rottweiler that is eager to please.  He’s very intelligent, already learning commands at 11 weeks! We can’t thank you enough for all your time and patience in answering our hundreds of questions.  No matter what we asked, you always responded quickly and with answers.  Your hospitality has been remarkable, and your professionalism and ethical nature have exceeded our expectations.  We couldn’t imagine not having a Von Elite breed in our family.  Thank you again for all your help, you are both remarkable and dedicated people that we consider part of our extended family.

Dear Lisa and Jason,

I wanted to tell you how much I appreciate Dell. She is an incredible companion. We go everywhere together. She makes me smile every day. Thank you so much for all of the time you spent with us when we picked Dell up and since I have had her. It is a comfort to know that I have someone I can call with any questions or advice I ever need. You guys go above and beyond. Keep up the great work.

Dear Lisa and Jason,

We’re writing to tell you how much we love our dog Jemma.  She is seven months old now and for us, she is the “perfect dog”. We have had seven dogs between us, including three Rots and two Shepherds, and she is absolutely the most intelligent animal we have ever been associated with.  It’s difficult not to gush but we expected a lot and she has exceeded our expectations.  And she is so cute.  We feel fortunate to have one of "Callisto’s The One's" beautiful puppies now that she has retired.  Thanks again for Jemma, she is a great addition to our lives..

After a lot of research, we are so happy we decided to go with Von Elite Kennels. We could not be more happy with our puppy. He is an outstanding, highly intelligent and perfect representative of his breed. He's even become best friends with one of our cats who's only 6lbs. Guess who's the boss? He has an excellent temperament which was most important to us. Lisa and Jason have been and continue to be a great resource and have been there for us from the beginning. We highly recommend Von Elite Kennels and Jason and Lisa if you want a fantastic Rottweiler.

Hi, this is Kenny McGill I bought your last Rottweiler puppy for litter F. Tobey is doing great and we really love him a lot. He is getting really big. My mom's friend Andre the one that came with us to Lisa's grandparent's house, I think so haha, but he had to build a bigger house, huge actually. Tobey sleeps really quiet in his house and Russel (my other dog) plays a lot with him. I feed him twice a day, always make sure he has water. He is also VERY smart. I taught him sit in a day, lay down took a while, and he knows shake, he learned shake in 2 days. The trick is you pretend to have a treat in your hand and he will put his paw on your hand then we give him a real treat and say "Good boy". I just wanted to check in with you so you would know that Tobey is alright.

Lisa and Jason,
I wanted to write and let you know how happy we are with Cendall and to thank you for both your hospitality and your interest in the Rottweiler breed. Cendall's temperament and physical stature has really impressed upon us what the 'total Rottweiler' really means. I hope that you keep doing what you do so that others can experience the satisfaction that an animal of this calibre can bring. Again, thank you so much for everything.


Dear Lisa and Jason,

We wanted to let you know how happy we are with Cacee. This is our first dog together and she has become a family member that we love dearly. We appreciate all you have done to help us work with her and we are proud to be a part of NIRK. Everybody that sees Cacee remarks on what a beautiful dog she is and we agree. You guys do a great job, keep up the good work!

Dear Lisa and Jason,

Thank you for all your help in our puppy selection. "Lulu" has exceeded all expectations as a member of our family. I have trained and hunted German Shorthair Pointers for over twenty years. The Rottweiler breed has always been a favorite of mine for their overall disposition and utility. My hunting has increasingly become more and more waterfowl hunting. "Lulu" is retrieving ducks and pigeons to hand at nine months.
She has become quite an ambassador for the Rottweiler breed. Everyone loves her friendly disposition. On many occasions she comes to work with me at the bank, customers and kids love her. Appreciate all your patience with my questions and concerns, you have exceeded my expectations!

Thanks again!

Hi Lisa & Jason,

I just wanted to write and say a big thank you for a wonderful experience with the recent addition to our family. Bjorn is a wonderful puppy and I can think of nothing that is lacking in him. His temperament, stature, and overall personality are definitely not an accident and I have no doubt that it can be attributed to the professional and ethical style of breeding which you champion. The Rottweiler breed is fortunate to have breeders such as yourselves. My father and I were also incredibly impressed with the hospitality and generosity you extended to us in all of the arrangements and preparations for our pickup of the dogs. It was certainly a long trip from Virginia to California and back again the same day but was a complete joy because of you.

Dear Von Elite,

I would like to thank you for all you have done. Caelie is wonderful!! I never expected to receive such a GREAT pup! She is everything I hoped for and much more, just like the two of you. I have such high expectations, she never lets me down, she has an eagerness to please and is such a character. Caelie is full of drive and a little cocky too. She has become such a big part of our family. I couldn't imagine life without her. I would also like to thank you for your professionalism. I had just about lost all faith in the breeders I had been talking with before you. You're a class act... to put up with my phone calls at all hours of the morning and to help steer me in the right direction. A lot of people say one thing but do another; you have been true to your word and that's rare in this day. You're a great role model for anyone looking to get involved with Rottweilers. I look forward to working with you in the future and hope I make you two proud of your little girl.
