Recommend Breeders in S. MD or N. VA Please


Can I get any recommendations for breeders in Southern Maryland or Northern Virginia?

I unexpectedly had my dog pass this last weekend, I'm currently deployed to Afghanistan and was missing him as it was.....he was lab/chow mix and I know I can't replace him but want to fill the void somewhat.....I return in 2 months and have been trying to scope out potential breeders via the net and have been reading a lot of the "Choosing Breeders" and "Choosing a pup" guides. I live in Southern Maryland and am looking for a large short hair female GSD for family companion/protection but would also like the option to do some Schutzhund training.

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. I've already started talking to Misty Ridge Kennels in New Windsor, MD if anyone has had any experience with them.

Imp-cen kennels in VA I believe. I saw one of their dogs at westminster and he was wonderful. Thank you for your service.

Imp-cen appears to be American showlines. So probably not a good option as the op expresses interest in Schutzhund.
No personal experience with Misty Ridge and hard to get enough info from their website to make a judgement.
Probably some of the board members in the area would know.

A couple of supplemental questions then, from my research so far I thought I would be looking at about $1500 on up. I know prices vary but what's the median these days? Also, any future breeding......will I be asked to forfeit any future breeding rights on males or females?

Most likely you will forfeit any future breeding rights on either a male or female UNLESS you and the breeder agree to the "breeding" price of the pup via contract. Also, don't try and cheat your way out of paying the extra "breeding" price by not neutering/spaying because then you'll be giving up your rights to the puppy's papers.

Most good breeders sell their pups on limited registration.
Then when the pup clears health certs and has the agreed on titles the breeder will lift the limited and your dog can then be bred

And I'd run away very fast from any breeder selling puppies for more money for "breeding rights"

Ahhh....that sounds more than fair, thanks Barb. I understand the health aspects but what about titles? I'm interested in exploring Schutzhund training, but nothing more than that.

Also, after reading some of the other threads in this forum I would feel comfortable in have a reputable breeder making a choice for me and shipping the pup in......am I missing any aspects in that regard?

Most good breeders sell their pups on limited regestration WRONG.
This is a total myth. You can not judge a breeder solely on whether they sell their pups on limited regestration!!!
