Stonehill is the place to go if you're looking for a great family companion. Their shepherds are bred with temperament as a priority and it shows when you meet their dogs. If you're looking for a healthy, sound, intelligent AND BEAUTIFUL dog, I highly recommend Stonehill kennels.
I first boarded my puppy here on recommendations from a friend. Had excellent experience. I than enrolled him in the 2 week train and board and could not be happier with the results. We attend the socials and are amazed to see all the German Shepards interacting. So extremely happy with all of their services.
My Stonehill dog saved my life! I bought an awesome dog from Stonehill with the intention of her just being a great companion for my husband and I. One day I was having some slight chest pains. I didn't think anything of it until our dog started acting odd and wouldn't leave my side. I took the hint and went to the hospital. Turns out I was having a heart attack, and my dog sensed it. We took her to special training and she is now a certified cardiac detection dog. She alerted on not only me, but my husband as well. She saved both our lives and we can't thank her enough! Thank you for producing our hero Stonehill.
Best dog ever! After a long wait on their waiting list, I finally got a puppy from Stonehill Kennels. They asked me what I was looking for in great detail and told me they would call me when they had the perfect match. Boy were they not kidding! It took a few months, but was well worth the wait! The litter I chose from was everything I wanted color, size and temperament wise. I couldn't decide which one I wanted, but Shelly was so helpful and told me about each puppy in detail. She really knows her dogs and after hours of debating with myself(while Shelly waited with the patience of a saint), I finally picked my dream puppy! He's a year old now, and everything I could have ever wanted in a dog.. and so much more!
My friend was on their waiting list at the same time as me, but wasn't patient enough to wait for the perfect match. I went with him to the kennel he got his dog, and boy, Stonehill easily outshines them! These other dogs were small, hyped up, ugly and fearful, the breeder wasn't helpful at all. Stonehill dogs are the complete opposite, and so was Shelly! My friend's dog is older than mine, and is only half the size, and is a total nutjob. He learned his lesson the hard way and will be going to Stonehill next time, as will I!
Stonehill is the best! The dogs are amazing, and so are the people. I first found them when they visited a family member with their amazing therapy dogs. These people take out the time to do little things like that, and that's what matters most! Anyway, I got a Stonehill boy (after lots of interviewing by this amazing breeder) and he is the best dog I've ever had. Got his hips checked, they're perfect. He's healthy as a horse. He's super smart and has an amazing personality too! Everyone that meets him loves him and we get complimented on him everywhere we go. We're training him to be a therapy dog. Shelly has helped us with that, and has gone above and beyond what was necessary to help us and answer our questions. If you have any complaints about your dog, we must not have gone to the same place! There is nothing to complain about when it comes to this kennel. Stonehill is German shepherd heaven, and I will never get a dog from anyone besides Shelly and the Stonehill gang!
Without a doubt the best breeder I have seen. My GSD will be 2 in July and he has the best demeanor I have ever seen in a German shepherd, he has not even been neutered yet, and he has never shown any aggression or any sign of being territorial to where I would even think about doing it. Every vet who has seen him is so impressed with how well behaved he is, and everyone who lays eyes on him falls in love.
The way Stonehill treats their puppies and gets them use to being groomed is impressive, I have never had trouble with grooming, he doesn't mind his nails being clipped or getting a bath. I am very impressed with them and recommend them to everyone looking for a GSD.
I bought my first GSD from Shelly and she was a wonderful dog, her learning and training ability was amazing. She was the best dog we could ever ask for! We are now waiting to get another female from Stone Hill in eight weeks and all are so excited! Shelly is a #1 breeder who cares deeply for her German Shepherds and they don't know how lucky they are!

My 14-month-old male German shepherd from Stonehill Kennels is a beautiful and protective companion in my life. He has a wonderful temperament, something all the Stonehill shepherds are known for. People stop their cars on a regular basis to compliment me on his beauty and manners.
That being said, it is not a small decision to take on such a strong and powerful breed, so Shelly makes sure to interview prospective owners at length about their lifestyle, their experience with handling dogs, and their intentions for their dog. This is the mark of a responsible and caring breeder. I don't think she would have had any problem turning me away if she did not think I was ready for this dog.
What's amazing about Shelly is to see how the shepherds are her life. To see her own personal dogs interact with her and love her is a great experience.
I wish I lived closer to Stonehill Kennels so we could come back and visit, or certainly take advantage of her boarding and grooming services. If I ever had to leave my dog somewhere long term, I would definitely consider Stonehill despite the drive because I know my dog would receive proper care from knowledgeable German shepherd owners.
I have known two other dogs from Stonehill, one of whom is now almost 8 years old, so I can truly attest that her dogs have wonderful temperaments.
