I was at the Detroit Kennel Club show this past weekend (March 3) and talked to a GSD breeder that I may be interested in, when getting my next GSD (probably not for a few years but doesn't hurt to start looking).Has anyone heard anything good or bad about the kennel Zwinger vom haus huro (website is www.vomhaushuro.com).I
met some of their dogs at the show and talked to them a little. They said they did not have much luck in AKC shows (they had german lines vs american lines), but did compete and have success in obedience. As far as the type of dog I want, my highest priority would be a breeder with healthy dogs. All three GSD's I have owned have had serious health problems, including seizures, DM and Pannus. Besides health, I am just looking for a medium to low drive companion. As long as the dog is healthy I don't have any preference between GSL or American bred. Though I am pretty much set on a long coat and I know they are more common in GSL.I do not compete in any dog sports. I do take my dogs to training classes and my most recent dog that I still have did get her CGC and I tried rally obedience but just didn't have the time. Mostly I just spend a lot of time with my dog, going for walks, taking them on vacations, and going to our cottage on the lake.
