Philadelphia Area-Seeking Breeders
Good morning everyone. First, I am brand new to the website. I am doing my due diligence in researching the GSD and the proper steps to finding the right breeder and puppy. A little background, I had a GSD as a young boy and now at 32 am looking to bring a new GSD into my young family, particularly for my 3 year old daughter who loves "big dogs" as she calls them. We have a lovely home with a large 6ft fenced in yard so a GSD would thrive. I myself am very active so the breed is perfect for my family. I also have trained 3 "Seeing Eye" dogs (all labs) so I love that GSD's are highly intelligent when it comes to training, something I love doing.
I live in the Philadelphia suburbs and am looking for any suggestions on breeders within a couple hours of me. That reaches to Lancaster west, Reading North, NJ east and MD, DE south. This will be a family dog with no future competition or breeding. I will be very active with the dog.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. I'm not the type to just run out to a pet store and buy a dog so time is on my side in finding the perfect breeder/dog for my family.
