First I'll say, I do not know anyone at Munster Abbey Kennel. One of, if not the best GSD I have seen, came from Munster Abbey kennel. I am 65 now, I was perhaps 60 when I met Shutzy (not sure how it was spelled). I own Land of Giants kennel in Gardner, Ma.I am a dog trainer and breeder. I breed APBT's and train all kinds of dogs for all sorts of purposes.
My client bought Shutzy as a young adult from a friend of his who could not keep the dog. I do not recall why, but I do recall it was of no fault of, or issue with the dog. Shutzy was then brought here for classes in advanced off leash obedience and personal protection.
The dog was a natural and learned everything very quickly. Shutzy was extra intelligent, a quick and eager student, tough as nails, constructed extremely well and a very handsome animal.
Dogs of this quality are very rare and hard to find from most sources. He was obviously from a line of well bred extra special GSD's.
I wrote this review for this reason: Many people think that all dogs of a given breed are the same or equal. They think a $400 dollar GSD from the Sunday Telegram is no different than a $2000 GSD. Those people are incorrect. I have sent other people in the direction of Munster Abbey in the past. I have client now looking for a GSD and I have urged them to go there as well.
Forty years ago I bred the GSD. I have gone to numerous dog shows and numerous training keenels and training schools and have seen hundreds of GSD's. I am quite knowledgable of dogs and dog temperaments. I could go on about my credentials and I could go on about Shutzy, but I won't.
Shutzy was an excellent example of a high quality GSD that performed as the breed should. Though I now breed my own line of APBT's, the GSD remains one of my favorite breeds. It is increasingly difficult to find high quality GSD's these days. I am sure there are other breeders with great ones out there. That dog from Munster Abbey was a credit to the breed, the kennel and to dogs in general. Ken Buzzell - Land of Giants APBT Kennel.

I first looked into Munster Abbey Kennel about a dozen years ago after having two unsatisfactory experiences with Sukee Kennel, a German Shepherd breeder in Warren, Maine that was more widely known at the time (one pup put down at 5 months with hip dysplasia, his replacement's ears didn't stand). From my first discussions with them Larry and Donna Doyon at Munster Abbey impressed me with both their knowledge of the breed and their commitment to breeding only the best of the breed. Their studs and dams were awesome as was their facility. Each adult dog they brought out to show me acted like he was their only family pet, and it was clear that they showered their dogs with attention. Nearly ten years ago, after searching quite extensively, I bought a pair of puppies, brother and sister, from Munster Abbey. They were my 8th and 9th German Shepherds, but I can honestly say they were the best dogs I ever owned. My beloved female Xena developed a tumor in her abdomen a few months ago which then ruptured and she tragically had to be put down. Her brother Ajax is still my constant and loyal companion and, in my humble opinion, the smartest, most beautiful German Shepherd ever! He is nearly ten years old, but still enjoys a mile of running and tennis ball chasing every day. The Doyons knew that I wanted a dog who wanted to be played with and roughhoused with, and whose tempermant was suited to having friends and family, including kids, stopping by my house. They also had to respect that our two cats and dozen laying hens were their family too and not game to be chased. Their recommendations for the litter I should consider choosing from, based on their knowledge of their parents' traits, was dead on. I picked them up on a Sunday at 8 weeks old, and we started obedience class the very next day. They were stars in their class and have been obedient, off leash walkers their whole lives. I have spent the past several months wondering whether Ajax would appreciate having a pup around to play with, because he is so playful even at his age, or whether the high energy of a pup would not be his cup of tea. While I still am mulling that over, there is no issue about where I will go for my next dog, no matter if I do it now or wait until my Ajax is finally passed on. I will never buy a dog anywhere else! I cannot give Larry and Donna Doyon and their Munster Abbey Kennels high enough accolades. Go there and you will not be disappointed with your dog.
