Testimonials Page

We are always getting comments on how beautiful and well-behaved they both are.


Erin was amazing when I first spoke to her. I had spoken to a couple of breeders previously but knew immediately that Erin was the breeder for us. We felt so comfortable that we ended up getting two puppies from her instead of just one! You can tell straight away that Erin absolutely loves her dogs, is super knowledgeable, completely honest and just wants the best for her dogs. 

​Fudge and Kev are now 4.5 months old and are just the most amazing dogs. They both toilet trained within the first week of having them and it is crazy how fast they pick up commands. They fitted into the family perfectly, love the kids and adore our older dog without overwhelming him. We often take them to the beach in Raglan and it's incredible that even off leash they are constantly checking in where the kids and I are and never roam far away.

We are always getting comments on how beautiful and well-behaved they both are. As much as I'd love to take the credit for their behaviour, this definitely shows the way they've been bred. 

I'm so glad they are part of our family!

We can’t believe how well-behaved and relaxed he is!


I couldn’t recommend Sabella Farms more. We got our little puppy around two months ago and he is absolutely gorgeous. Erin was fantastic to deal with – I really appreciated that she asked me questions about what we were like and if we would be a good fit for her pups, it shows she cares.

Our boy Boston has such a sweet nature and so far we can’t believe how well-behaved and relaxed he is.

Everything was organised, all we had to do was pick them up from the airport.


We have now had two pups from Sabella Farms and they are both totally delightful. Erin was really helpful when the pups were ready to be transported to us via Air. Everything was organised, all we had to do was pick them up from the airport. They are both beautiful, very well-adjusted dogs, one is now a year old and the other one almost 4 months. Both very healthy and both with amazing characters.

Erin has kept in touch with us and is always there if we need advice. I can’t recommend them enough if you want a beautiful German Shepherd.

A great all-round dog that suits our family.

We have welcomed one of Sabella Farms pups into our family. Erin has been great to deal with, we received the hip and elbow scoring and the DM testing results for our pup's parents which were very good and quite important to us. We know that we can always come back to Erin for support and ask as many questions as we want.

Our fur baby is loving, intelligent, willing to please, fantastic around people and will be a great all-round dog that suits our family. We couldn’t be more happy.

His intelligence is a testament to his breeding.

I highly recommend Erin if you’re thinking about getting a new family member. Our Koda is highly intelligent, has an easy-going nature, and is very sociable – before even taking him to puppy school.


So many people have commented on how quiet he is for a puppy because no matter how excited he gets in public he will never bark or jump at people. We also had a friend who happens to be a former obedience trainer say how incredibly intelligent he is to have picked up so many commands at such a young age without having been to any classes yet. So I’d say it’s all a testament to his breeding. Sabella Farms obviously know what they’re doing because they’ve managed to give us the dog of our dreams and I could not be more thankful.

Also Erin is so on top of messages and always making herself available for questions that we have or even just to gush over how adorable Koda is. Makes us so happy to know that we made the right choice going with her.

A fantastic level of support at every stage.

We bought our pup from Sabella Farms, even though they were further away than other breeders because it was important to us that we had confidence in the breeder. The care they put into everything they do has come through in every interaction and the incredible aftercare we’ve had in helping our pup to settle in with our family.

We got a fantastic level of support at every stage and have maintained an incredible relationship with them which is ongoing, they are always happy to help even with the smallest thing.

The ongoing support means everything to us.

We got our beautiful female German Shepherd pup ‘Suki’ at age 9 weeks from Erin, Sabella Farm. Suki is now 4 months old and growing up beautifully. She’s a quick learner and has a kind, playful and adaptable nature. I am regularly in touch with Erin, she takes great interest and time out of her busy schedule to help me with any questions I might have in regards to Suki’s well-being, training etc, which is exceptional service to anyone getting their pup from her.

We have never had German Shepherds before, so to have that confidence that we are getting the ongoing support means everything to us. Thank you so much. Suki is so beautiful and precious to us and has brought us so much happiness.

She is perfect in every way!

It’s been a week since we brought our beautiful girl Zuri home and we are so in love! She is just perfect in every way! We can’t speak highly enough of Erin and Sabella Farm.

From our first enquiry, through the process, to Zuri being home for the first week, Erin has been so helpful and friendly – she made us feel like we were part of the Sabella Farm Family from the start! She even connected us with another family here in Wellington and we now have a brother for Zuri to play with and new friends.


There is so much love all around and we are so grateful to be part of it.

My pup is kind, curious and very intelligent.

Erin and Bryce are an amazing couple who are honest, genuine and friendly and just love their dogs. The way Erin and Bryce raise their dogs, pups and horses is the reason I went with Sabella Farms. I highly recommend Sabella Farms if you are looking for a well-rounded, socialised German Shepherd puppy for your family.

From the beginning when I started communicating with Erin about the breeding and lifestyle her dogs had on the farm, I received continuously helpful and friendly texts and emails. I was able to meet the parents of my pup (Liani and Rudy) before I made the decision to invest in a pup from Sabella Farms.

The adult dogs are gentle and beautiful German Shepherds. My pup Khanum is a wonderful girl who is kind, curious and very intelligent. She has settled into my family well and every day is full of play and fun. 

Thank you so much.
