Book reviews - The Leopard Gecko Advisor:

"I just finished reading your book "The Leopard Gecko Advisor". I have to say I was a bit hesitant to purchase it because I've read pretty much all the books written on leos and had considered the latest book to be the last one I would need to ever read. Boy was I surprised by this one! I never would have imagined being able to learn so much more on a subject I thought was previously covered extensively. It was also written in a way a laymen can understand without a lot of unnecessary or hard to decipher information. This will be THE book I will recommend for all my leo customers and really feel it should make my part on educating them much easier." - Tad Fitzgerald/Captive Bred Excellence

"I was happy to receive your book as a gift, and I must say it is very well written. I think it is an excellent resource for new gecko keepers, as well as veterans. It confirmed many of my philosophies and practices, and it’s good to know there are breeders that truly love their geckos!" - Marcia McGuiness/Golden Gate Geckos

"I've had the opportunity to meet Ray and Carol of (Designer Geckos) when they had their store here in Colorado. I have purchased numerous leopard geckos from Designer Geckos. Prior to the release of their book "The Leopard Gecko Advisor", Ray and Carol always took the time to explain their methodology of Leopard Gecko Care starting with the very first gecko I bought from them. Thei...r method is the pinnacle of reason of why my Leopard Geckos have thrived and are in top notch condition and health. My discussions with Ray and Carol at their Colorado store have lasted for hours on occasion. After reading this book, I can honestly say this book explains every method they taught me and more. Now that I own this book and no longer have the convenience of visiting them at their store in Colorado (they are now in AZ), I will continue to reference back to this book and all the important information Ray has offered to provide. While reading this book I felt the same passion I got when talking with Ray in person at their store. Ray and Carol with Designer Geckos are Top Notch with outstanding experience to Leopard Gecko care. This book is a must read for every Leopard Gecko keeper from the novice to the experienced keeper. A+++." - Craig Rostad

"I can't say enough good things about Designer Geckos!  Ray and Carol were SO helpful with getting us started on our gecko journey, patiently guiding us and answering our many questions. His professional and caring approach is incredible!! It's evident he knows a lot about and loves the geckos in his care. This was evident in the extra careful way our geckos were shipped and in the incredibly beautiful and healthy animals we received! Their bodies full and robust, their temperaments very sweet and their colors knock your socks off!! I would recommend them over and over again."  Lisa - NY

What Designer Geckos is all about:

Designer Geckos is not your usual source for leopard geckos. Our business model is to provide a very unique niche in the leopard gecko pet field. We have both our online store, as well as an actual storefront location, the first and only one of its kind in the world!  Our goal is to provide reasonably-priced, top notch, beautiful geckos, and also to provide cutting-edge gecko education to our customers so they, and the geckos, have a wonderful and positive life experience. These geckos will all be premium geckos, with outstanding genetic bloodlines, extreme coloration and patterns, A-1 health, great conformation, and excellent temperament. These show-quality geckos are stunning in every sense of the word. Not only are they all choice animals, but, unlike large breeders who produce large numbers of geckos and may not have the time to spend with individual animals, we do provide direct human contact and socialization daily with each gecko. We feel it is important for some gecko enthusiasts to obtain not only spectacular geckos, but to receive them already socialized with humans and ready to easily be tamed when you receive and acclimate them.

Designer Geckos is owned by Ray and Carol Roehner.  Ray has a science degree, is a certified laboratory animal technologist, and has been raising reptiles and other animals since he was five.  Carol has extensive experience and training in sales, marketing, and customer service.  Their goals are to offer among the very best designer leopard geckos on the market, and also to provide solid customer support to ensure that your experience with Designer Geckos is a positive, professional, and enjoyable one.  

Our philosophy:

If you are new to the leopard gecko hobby, please be sure you are well-versed in the basics and principles of the proper care of leopard geckos, and have a fully functioning setup and temperature-regulated terrarium ready to receive these fine animals before buying one. We can provide you with all the information you will need to provide excellent care for your geckos. The humane and proper care of these geckos is of very high importance to us, and this philosophy will benefit you greatly so you can have an outstanding, healthy pet and addition to your family, or to have as an addition to your own breeding program, establishing our animals as breeders with outstanding temperament, color, size, and health aspects. 

The sources for our carefully selected animals:

In addition to our own breeding stock program, we choose the very best leopard geckos from various outstanding breeders who adhere to the same high standards of Designer Geckos. We choose only their very best animals to go into our breeding program. Once we obtain their geckos for our program, we continue to raise them to full maturity and adult coloration, ensure that they have outstanding health through our affiliated licensed reptile veterinarians, feed them high quality foods, and carefully socialize them so they get the kind of human contact and handling that will be of enormous benefit to you since many personality traits can be passed on to the geckos' offspring.  We have a parasite-free colony to ensure our geckos have an outstanding health profile, and our geckos are all 100% satisfaction guaranteed.

We'd like to thank the following for their outstanding contributions and kind assistance in our gecko project: Ron Tremper, Garrick DeMeyer, and Steve Sykes, as well as all the other fine gecko folks who make this wonderful hobby such a pleasure to be involved in. A special thanks to Brittney Gougeon for developing our website.  Thanks also to Ottmar Liebert for our site's music, and Ed Unitsky for the beautiful logo artwork.
