In the fall of 2017 we lost our dear long-haired GSD, Sadie. Everyone in our family was brokenhearted by the loss. After a few months we felt the house was felt empty and we decided we wanted to bring a dog back into our lives. My husband found Robin’s website and saw that there were puppies available from her current litter and the timing was perfect for us. We counted down the days until we could bring our new puppy home.
When we first met Robin and her husband we were struck by the comfortable and caring environment that they provide for their dogs. It was clear that all of their dogs (and pups) were not only well cared for but loved as well.
Annie and Lestat are pets first and breeding dogs second. That’s a wonderful thing and a rarity in the world of dog breeding. We left there feeling that we made the right choice in choosing a breeder.
We left there with Dakota feeling happy and excited to bring her home. Dakota has proven to be a wonderful pet and companion to all of us. She is not only a beautiful dog but she has a sweet, spunky, fun personality and is very, very smart (this has helped tremendously with her training.) She just turned a year old and we couldn’t be happier to have her in our lives.
We have stayed in touch with Robin and enjoy seeing updates about Dakota’s littermates!

Lulu is our very first dog and I am so grateful we found Robin and her family. In our long search for the perfect puppy, we came across a lot of breeders who were more concerned about being paid in contrast to Robin, who wanted to find the right owners for the puppies and their well-being. This matters. In the first 8 weeks of the pups’ life, Robin regularly sent pictures and updates and you knew they were being taken care of and immediately welcomed into a loving family environment. When it came time to pick up Lulu, Robin and her husband welcomed us into their home where we talked for nearly two hours about Lulu’s parents, they answered our many questions, and gave invaluable advice for first time GSD owners. It’s been 14 months and I still hear from Robin regularly with update’s about Lulu’s siblings and parents. Robin is always responsive and helpful with advice on training and puppy behaviors. Lulu is the best thing that has happened to us and it’s been a constant positive experience working with Robin. I cannot thank her enough for all she has done for my family!

We received our Kaiser boy from "Vom Schaetzle Haus" nearly two years ago. He has matured into an amazing and absolutely stunning dog. His drive and manners are just the best. He’s so sweet, yet would give his life for our family. We get compliments weekly on how gorgeous, and well behaved he is. Thank you to Robin who is the Central Pennsylvania expert on long haired German Shepherds. She truly has a passion for her dogs and cares about every puppy she finds a home for. I highly recommend VomSchaetzle Haus for a brilliant, beautiful and well maintained Shepherd Bloodline. Thank you Robin!

I’ve had German shepherds my entire life so when it came time to search for a puppy I knew exactly what I wanted. Which was a long haired purebred German Shepherd puppy. My Duke is now two years old and he is my baby. I don’t know what I would do without him. He is incredibly smart, feisty, and well behaved at the same time. After about a month of living with him he learned that when mommy is laying down it’s time to be quiet. Now at two years old I wake up every morning to see him laying next to me, watching and patiently waiting for me to wake up. He doesn’t move until I say good morning. The second I say those two words it’s time to attack with kisses! He is the biggest baby and does not have a mean bone in his body. The dogs that come from "Vom Schaetzle Haus" are the best of the best. I could not have asked for a more beautiful and amazing family member.

We cannot say enough good things about our experience with Robin. From the time we met she has been informative and helpful. We felt so good about getting a dog from a breeder whose dogs are pets /family members instead of just a means to make money. Robin is so knowledgeable and has helped continuously with any questions we have had regarding puppy hood and dog health. We love staying connected, sending pictures and getting to see pictures of her litter mates as they grow. We could not be happier with our new furry family member we got from Robin. Our trainer describes our pup as having a “bomb proof” temperament and said that our breeder “really knows how to breed a dog”. We highly recommend Robin to anyone looking for a well-bred dog and a great experience.

I got my purebred German Shepard (my baby Chloe :) from Robin about 3 years ago in August. Chloe has had absolutely no problems! She's been a happy, healthy girl! She became aquatinted with our family very quickly, and we love her to death! Working with Robin was a breeze. She always addressed us with kindness and excitement. She is always available and helpful with any questions I've had, even to this day. If we were going to get another German Shepherd, we would definitely go back to Robin and Vom Schaetzle! If you are considering, this is a spectacular option!
