We currently have a coated female who is a wonderful dog. She is a sweet girl with a very loving and mellow temperament. For a number of reasons, we aren't seeking out the same people when looking for a new dog.
Does anyone have an recommendations? We would travel outside of Connecticut, but would want to be close enough to see the puppies in person and watch them interact to pick our pup. We had a lot of success with that in selecting our current GSD, and am hesitant of the 'you get the dog we give you' variety.
Coated is not a firm requirement, in fact we never expected to pick out a coatie with our first, but I do love her look
