“When we were thinking about getting our first dog, I knew it had to be a lapponian herder. I fell in love with the breed when I was a kid, but finding a breeder was becoming increasingly difficult. Then we came across Kuulas Kennels. Wow. Not only was Jillian extremely communicative, but she was so understanding and worked with me on everything. She sent us links, advice, pictures, and always kept us up to date. When we finally chose Rizzo, she was able to constantly send us updates and pictures until we could finally meet him. When we finally picked up Rizzo, we got to meet his parents, Mika and Milo, and they are just the absolute sweetest!! Jillian left us with an amazing care package and always made sure to check up on us! Amazing is an understatement for this breeder! Rizzo has been the absolute biggest light in our life. Kuulas Kennels has given us more than just a dog, they’ve given us the best gift we could ever ask for. As our first dog, Rizzo was so easy to train! He basically learned “sit” the first day we brought him home, and the rest was all done in a matter of the first few months! I had no idea lapponian herders were so smart until we met Rizzo. He knows when he’s in trouble, knows how to find toys and knows when to calm down. We have to be careful though, because sometimes he can be too smart for our own good! Rizzo’s mannerisms are probably our favorite thing about him! He never fails to make us laugh! He has the funniest faces, makes the funniest grunting noises, and sleeps in absolutely the funniest way! We seriously cannot even come close to thanking Kuulas Kennels enough for giving us Rizzo! We cannot wait to get our next fur baby from Kuulas Kennelas, soon! We wouldn’t want to go through anyone else!!"
