Our complaint is the clear lack of customer service and professionalism exhibited by Mr. Dietz. We purchased a puppy back in 2011 from Mr. Dietz. At the time, we found that the pup had a hernia that needed surgery to correct. We informed Mr. Dietz about the issue and after getting no where, despite being within our warranty time frame and well within the pet guarantee, we chose to have the hernia fixed at our expense. To date, Mr. Dietz has failed to reimburse us or take any responsibility for the issue. That aside, we recently looked into the file and realized that we had not registered our dog with the AKC. We contacted Mr. Dietz and to our amazement, he still had the papers and was gracious enough to allow us to purchase them...at an outrageous price. The original price for the papers was to be $300, however, Mr. Dietz now feels that despite having the paperwork, he should nearly double the price to $500. We acknowledge that we failed to purchase the papers at the time of purchase but were promised we could do so at a latter date for $300. We sent a simple email asking why the price increased so much. To our astonishment, he was less than professional. Bear in mind, he makes nothing from these papers and they have simply been sitting in a file taking up space and have $0 value to him. After his threats to either pay his "ransom" or he would shred the papers, we quickly realized that all professionalism and business ethics would be lost in our dealings with Mr. Dietz. We have since chosen to contact the BBB in hopes that perhaps a third party could bring him back to a simply ethical and professional standpoint. Mr. Dietz rejected the reasonableness of the BBB. We have since contacted the AKC and they were astonished by his actions and have stepped in to correct the issue. Our advice is simple-there are plenty of reputable breeders that will ensure the health of a puppy and be more than willing to ensure the new owners are given the papers-choose one of them and avoid the issues exhibited by 4 Bar D Kennels.

I got a Saint Bernard puppy from 4barD in January, and she seemed to be fine. Upon picking her up, rather than being clean as they said that she would be, she was covered in dog doo-doo which I had to smell the whole drive home.Everything was going fine with her until about a month ago, when she started acting a little off, not quite herself. I brought her to the vet, who recommended I go to the cardiologist. I then found out that she had a congenital heart disease resulting from the match up of her parents (Abby & General Lee). The cardiologist said that it is hereditary and so the two should not breed again. When I called 4barD to tell them, rather than being calm and listening to what I had to say, Scott Dietz began interrupting me and became very accusatory, as if I were making it up. He said that my story wasn't true because they;ve "never had a problem" with ANY of their puppies before...according to him. They are extremely difficult to work with here, I would not recommend it.

I adopted two adult dogs, one a german shepherd and the other a
rottweiler. After being here with my daughter and myself for just one week, they settled in like then had been here forever. I want to Thank Kathy and Scott for their patience with all of my questions and my proud moments with my new partners. I would highly recommend them to anyone that wanted a well bred, socialized and healthy and happy puppy or dog. Thanks A Million Guys !!!!

4 Bar D Kennel owners are wonderful. I purchased a beautiful Cocker Spaniel from them 5 years ago. She came to me socialized, healthy, with her shots, even a baby toy in her crate,a bottle of water on the top of the crate, a sample bag of food and her puppy packet. I was thrilled and so grateful I found 4 Bar D Kennels and was able to get such an amazing dog from them. I got my dog as a puppy 5 years ago, when she was 8 weeks old.

Because Scott and Kathy make sure to introduce the puppies to the outside as soon as they are able, my puppy knew to go to the door at 8 weeks old, right when I got her home. I was amazed because I didn't know they could learn that early to ask to go out.. She had her moments of course as puppies do, but she would never go in the house now, she always knows to "ask" to go out. I credit that to Scott and Kathy in familiarizing her and her litter mates so early with 'going' outside.

Before my purchase, I asked a million questions about them, the puppies, the one I wanted, Kathy was so understanding and helpful to me, she always took the time to make sure all of my questions were answered. Even after I got my puppy! She couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. They are very careful about selecting the best puppy for the individual or family, they want to make sure the match with the puppy's personality will work with their new owner.

I keep in touch with them to this day and would recommend anyone who wants to get a wonderful dog or puppy, go to them, they are honest, knowledgeable, professional and extremely caring people. If anything negative has been written about them in the past, I would seriously question the integrity of the individual. Scott and Kathy are wonderful to work with, they are reputable breeders who love their dogs and do a fantastic job with everything, from the beginning phone call inquiry about the puppy to even after you get your puppy.

4 Bar D is an excellent place to purchase a puppy. We purchased our Belgian Malinois through 4 Bar D and EVERY time our vet see's him she always tells me how lucky I am to have found such an excellent breeder.
I think TS has an axe to grind and is spreading misinformation. We reviewed 4 Bar D Kennels listing on the BBB and it shows them as being an Accredited business with an A+ rating!

I Bought German Shorthair pointer in January from 4BarD and this dog has no health issues, currently in hunting training and the trainer says he is one of the best dogs in physical and hunting ability. Great dog, could not ask for more. I'm sure every case is different, there is risk in purchasing any animal. I do not believe this is a puppy mill.

I also purchased a puppy from 4 bar D Kennels and am very satisfied! It was an 8 week german shorthaired pointer. He came to me very healthy and was potty trained in days! (I think they must pre-potty train!) Scott & Kathy have also been in touch with me several times since my purchase over 2 months ago, just to check in and/or to answer any and all of my questions. I have to say I am very pleased with them!
