Thumbs up Harrison K-9 or Canine Protection International (CPI)?

My girlfriend and I want to buy 2 german shepherds that can serve as protection when I am away and when we are at home. I would prefer a very sweet dog that is geared more towards protection than just a domestic pet or a show dog [not that either of those qualities are unfavorable to me]. I have been digging around and found Harrison and CPI to look the best. I am not as worried about the price as I am getting the best dog possible without having to get an in-depth education on the actual training, like many of you may do.

Any thoughts on these breeders? Any other suggestions?

Thank you for your time.

If you've got $35k-$45k to spend on EACH dog... be my guest. I'll leave my response at that... don't want to break any board rules.

Not at all necessary to spend that amount. This is like buying a $30,000 truck for $50,000 because someone hung some gold off the rearview and put gigantic useless tires on it. That truck will still only haul what it was made to haul, regardless of the extra money someone spent to get the "special" one of a kind truck.
We imported a phenomenal SchH titled female for some dear friends (we generally only import for ourselves, not as a business) that does stupendous bitework, has wonderful obedience, is beautiful and is a great family dog. We almost tried to keep her for ourselves LOL. Anyway, it only took a few weeks of research and correspondence to find her and we didn't have to pay anywhere near that amount.
Also, Harrison K9 are not breeders. They buy puppies from Europe and re-sell them from what I recall. Not saying they claim to be breeders, just letting the OP know the difference.

We looked at everything for our pup before deciding. If it was me in your situation I would dig a little deeper into exploring your options and communicating with the resources you have close to home with your area K9 unit, Schutzhund Club and potential contacts on this site. Investigate all of your potential quality resources before such a big decision. Establish some dialogues with multiple options including site visits since financial resources are not an issue.

I just wanted to say to all would be posters, keep in mind that the OP is probably posting this as part of their research. Gotta start someplace right? : )

tell us about your experience with dogs , and what do you mean by "sweet dog" geared to protection.

make sure you have a realistic view and not a movie version , which I wondered about when you were asking about buying two dogs .

-- sorry I absolutely blew myself out with work today -- I'll have to take another stab at it tomorrow.

Please keep on topic. I am asking about those breeders and other recommended breeders, not about pricing.
