Testimonial : An amazing member of our family.

Breanna & Tony Blankenship

Dear Gabe,

The puppy we purchased from you to become a part of our family has far exceeded our expectations in so many ways. He is bursting wi

th personality and has become a bit of a celebrity in the little downtown area we call home. He gives all the shopowners we visit hugs and kisses just like he gives to my husband and I when we come home from a long day of work. We cannot speak highly enough of all of his amazing traits. He is athletic, loving, smart, sweet, well behaved, funny, and our family hasn’t been the same since he made himself a part of it! He brings so much joy to our lives and others. This breed of dog is the best out there, and you have truly made the breed shine with love and care you have put into breeding. He has brought the puppy back into our 12 year old dog Rocky. He is friendly with dogs and people alike. He loves to cuddle on the couch, let me put goofy outfits on him, grab a starbucks and get pets from the baristas, hike, be babied, run, leap, perform tricks, and give plenty of love. One of my favorite things that happened recently was going to Sports Academy with him to grab a few things. Every child left that store with a smile and a giggle after playing with Demo and getting kisses. It was a joy to see him put a smile on all the faces in the store. You will not find a better quality breeder. No one else has this quality of dog. Gabe has bred an amazing member of our family. We cannot thank him enough for bringing our pup Demo into our lives.

With Love and Joy,

The Blankenship Family 8/15/19

When I was 17 I woke up one morning and said I wanted a dog, I didnt know why.
While researching I found many cheap websites "selling" APBT's and advertising with flames and monster trucks in the background, but once I found redwood kennels I felt at ease. A family owned Kennel, one I could tell within seconds had a true passion to give people the blessing of owning one of these amazing animals. They made it easy.
When I went to the airport and saw my dog (Hennessy) in the crate I knew she was meant to be mine. The joy she brings my family and I everyday is priceless. Since that day, through the insanity and uncertainty life brings I always have my companion and best friend. Im thankful everyday for what redwood kennels gave me. No matter where I am in life, I will always have a Redwood Pit.

Gabriel, The Red Wood Kennels was the obvious choice when choosing my foundation stud. Your sire and dam possess just the right combination of pedigree I was looking for in a pup. When I arrived at your home, I knew immediately you were breeding correctly. Everything was clean and organized and you made the whole encounter comfortable. You are a prime example of what the ADBA is looking for in breeders of today. While enhancing the APBT’s reputation by breeding for conformation and temperament, you are also offering friendly mentoring advice. All this is greatly appreciated. I look forward to seeing you at future dog events with the both of us showing the heart and discipline you have helped to reinforce in this breed. David Sandoval, Keytesville, MO


A big huge THANK YOU to Gabriel Siquera and The Red wood  kennel’s for making this experience such a good one! This was my first time of getting a puppy from so far away and Gabe defiantly put my mind at ease. I was not able to visit the kennels and pick my puppy out first hand so it was very important to me that I had plenty of photos and videos and contact to the breeder to answer any and all questions I had.  I spent a lot of time looking and researching to find the perfect puppy for our family and decided that The Red Wood Kennels as the right place for us. Every phone call was returned right away and every text message was always answered in a very timely manner. Gabe made picking out my puppy so easy with the weekly updates of pictures and videos and anytime I wanted extra pictures or a video of a certain puppy all I had to do is ask and Gabe always made sure I got them. Even though I have Diesel home with me Gabe continues to still be there  answering any questions that I have in the same timely manner as before. the Redwood kennels really do care about the animals that they breed even after they have gone to their new homes. If you are looking for a TOP QUALITY puppy from a TOP QUALITY Kennel I would HIGHLY recommend  Gabriel Siquera and The Red Wood Kennels...My puppy Diesel arrived in Oregon very CLEAN and very playful and he is the perfect addiction to our family!

Gabriel, owner of The Redwood Kennels was a great pleasure to deal with. I started my search for our second APBT last summer. I wanted my pup to come from a working stock but more importantly I wanted someone active in the apbt community. Some one that was motivated and always looking to improve there program someone who enjoys there dogs as much as we do. We found this in the Redwood kennels. He was always ready to answer any questions very promptly before and after money was exchanged. My pup was shipped and arrived happy and very alert not afraid assuring me of a well oriented pup which is one of the most important stages in a dogs life! I felt like we knew our pup when she arrived, Gabriel's updates where constant that allowed us to share in her first stage of life. There's a lot to consider when buying a new pup and Gabriel meet all the criteria of a well rounded kennel. He was priced right and showed real interest in the well being of the pup. My adba and ukc paperwork showed up two weeks after my pup was shipped a very reasonable time frame! All in all I am very pleased with The Red Wood Kennels look forward to meeting Gabriel in person and to hit the working circle with our pup!!

Gabriel, if I could take a moment to say thank you for our newest family member it would be an honor. We got our little Nala when she was 13 weeks old and she has been a true blessing to our family from the first day! She is fearless and so very smart! There is no "back down" in her when she plays with our full grown male, Nero, and she is absolutely phenomenal with my two kids (7 & 8 yrs old). I will never be able to thank you enough for producing such a great little pup and for making her available to my family. You made the purchase as simple as possible and the shipping too and I wanted to tell you how awesome that part was from my point of view. Simply put, we love this dog and we cannot thank you enough for her. Keep up the great work at The Red Wood Kennels and keep producing top notch dogs!

"I have recently purchased a  puppy from Gabe.  I have had an absolute WONDERFUL experience with him from beginning to end!!!  I was a little apprehensive at first about purchasing a puppy online, but I was quickly put at ease.  Gabe answered all my questions in a prompt and professional manner, sent pictures whenever I requested, and remained helpful and upfront throughout the entire process.  I wish I could give him a big hug!!  I received a healthy, happy, outgoing, affectionate puppy and my family is overjoyed!!  We just love our little Bailey!  Even potty training so far has been a breeze!  We can tell that she came from a loving home/breeder and we are so grateful to Redwood  Kennel for delivering exactly what they promised!!!  They really care about their puppies!!!  Thank you sooooo much Gabe!!!  Bailey is an amazing addition to our family!!  I will definitely be recommending you to family and friends!!!"

My first words on this testimony is WOW! I normally don't leave feedback or a star rating, although this experience with Gabe, Red Wood Kennels has been nothing less than perfect! I am a single mother of 3 AMAZING kids who are MY WORLD!! So .. When I was doing my research about APBT (which is a breed I consider QUALITY) I wanted none other than a quality breeder. I have to say that I definitely done some good research because I found that quality breeder! From the very first email ., I literally had so many questions, and Gabe has so many answers, not only did he provide answers, he provided an explanation!! Gabe never once made me feel like he was pushing to "sell" the pup to me ... I actually felt "honored" and "privileged" to be getting a puppy from such a high end breeder & kennel. Gabe has a goal and it's to make the APBT breed a creditable name behind the puppy that he takes pride in producing! (That's my opinion) Gabe made our "first time owner" experience like no other is even qualified to compete with! My 3 children & I now have the puppy that we have watched grow via email photos & videos. It's truly magical for them to be excited to get an update on "our puppy" ... The happiness and connection that my 3 children express through their smiles and attitude are PRICELESS!!!! So I would like for that to be my final words for this EXPERIENCE ... PRICELESS!!!

Since losing one of our dogs to cancer last February our family has felt incomplete. I have owned American Pit Bull Terriers for the good part of 10 years but just started showing in the ADBA a couple of years ago. Gabe was one of the first people to make me feel welcome at the shows. I would usually come alone, except for my dog, and he always went out of his way to say hello and check on me. When it came time to add another dog to our family, I thought of Gabe because not only is he a stand up guy but he makes a practice of breeding dogs that fit breed standard. I know our new puppy, Garcia, will mature to have a stable temperament and the drive to succeed at whatever task we put before him. Gabe is great to work with, is always here for me when I have questions and continues to show me that he is passionate about the well being of this breed and the dogs he produces.

It took me a while to decide to get a new puppy and because my husband wanted a pit bull I was even more unsure because we never had a big dog and all that misinformation about the breed, but all that was gone when we went to visit the Red Wood Kennel and Gabriel was there, open to answer all the questions that we had, he was very patient and so nice with us, we were able to see how he treated the dogs and the puppies and I just felt very peaceful, He's seems to love his dogs and that can make a whole lot of difference, I thank God because we found the right place to get the new addition to your family. If you thinking about getting a pit bull puppy and wants to be sure you are getting the real deal don't think twice call Gabriel.

After months of searching we ran across Red Wood Kennels as they appeared to have exactly what we wanted – a true Red Nose Pit bull.  Well, after having “Jax” for the last 10 days we definitely know that we adopted the right dog from a great breeder.  He is truly amazing – he is affectionate, loyal, energetic and overall the sweetest little guy we could have hoped for!  Gabriel has been extremely helpful and also available anytime we needed him.  Thanks again!

I never thought my search for what I desired in a dog would take me half way across the country. But, I couldn't have asked for a better individual to help me in my pursuit than Gabe. From all my countless odd questions and anxious inquiries, to arriving at a completely different scheduled time than what he was expecting, he was there with a quick response and helpful answer. Not being familiar with the area it was comforting to be so welcomed and received. Being able to spot the dog boxes on his truck was also a good feeling. All of his dogs, as well as those he was caring for of others were very well taken care of. Her ear crop was very well done and has been holding up very nice. She couldn't be more eager to please! For such a little girl she has a big tank of energy... Having searched the internet and dealt with some  of "the worlds best kennels" it was relaxing to not have the quality of dog that I was expecting pushed upon me, and having been given a critical analysis of his experience with his dogs it was appreciated that he had positive insight into other kennels and individuals as well as many informative resources to assist me with my new family member. After my experience with Gabe, and his amazing bulldogs I couldn't be happier knowing that I chose a person with such integrity and passion invested into his animals and family.  And I am proud to say that my amazing puppy Maya, wouldn't be with me without great dogs like Jake and Moonshine and an incredible individual like Gabriel Siqueira!!

He was great with the shipping arraignments and everything went quick and smooth. I highly recommend a Chocolate Red-nose from Gabe at Redwood. Be sure you are willing and able to provide vigorous exercise for these amazing dogs everyday! High drive and super athletic! Thanks again Gabe!!!"

After a year of research of APBT's we finally came across Gabriel at Redwood Kennels who is producing actually APBT.  We never thought we would be getting a dog from so far away,  but after speaking with Gabriel many times we realized this is who we want to get our dog from.  It was very clear to us that he is not only breeding APBT but he also loves what he is doing and loves his dogs which was very important to us.

Gabriel was an amazing person to work with. He updated us weekly after the puppies had been born,  He sent photos every Sunday so we could see the growth and development of the litter. He also responded promptly to all additional questions (and there were many) via email and text. We felt so comfortable working with him and trusted him throughout the entire process. 

Our little puppy showed up happy,  clean,  healthy and very excited to see his new owners.

If you’re looking for a APBT we would highly recommend Gabriel of Redwood Kennels.  

Thank you so much Gabriel!

It has been almost six months since we received out little package of joy from you - our beautiful American Pit Bull Terrier puppy that we named Rookie.  I’m finally writing to let you know how much we truly treasure him and what an incredible dog that you have bred for us.  Rookie is remarkably smart.  Training him has been a breeze.  Within weeks he had learned potty training, and all of his basic commands.  We have now trained him on touch work, mat work, and a ton of other more advanced skills.  He adores training and is a true working dog.  Rookie at less than eight months old has the best recall of any dog I have ever worked with.  He is fantastic.

More than that he is an angel.  He loves kids and adults alike.  He loves our cat even, and she is a very opinionated Torby.  He gets along famously with other dogs and loves his time at the dog park and at doggy day care when we bring him in once per week.  His temperament is truly outstanding.  Rookie loves just lounging around, sleeping on us, playing fetch, watching TV together, and doing anything and everything that we do.

He is a beautiful, strong, loyal, fun, calm, obedient, playful and angelic dog.  He is a true ambassador of the breed.  And he is already the sweetest and most wonderful dog I have ever known.

Thank you so much for helping us find the right dog for us,

Bret, Moriah…and Rookie.
