Default best working line breeder in midwest?

hi all,

i've been looking around for a working line breeder in the midwest and have just come across so many that i need some outside advice! i'm from chicago and while someone close has it's obvious advantages, i will drive a few hours.

i currently have a female from vom haus miller in spring green, wi and she is one of the best workers i've ever handled; however, she does have allergies that don't respond to any sort of treatments, so i've been looking around for another new pup. hopefully one that hasn't been linebred.

i am going to take a look at my bodyguard gsd in marengo, il tomorrow and from talking to them/looking at their site, they seem to know what they're doing.

any other suggestions? i'm looking for a serious working dog to participate in psa with. thank you!

Before you go to Marengo....contact Melinda from Gildafk9.
She has some very nice working dogs...*she trains with us*...and I know her dogs personally. FWIW.
*I could PM you regarding the Marengo "area"...but I'd rather just *recommend* that you contact Melinda first....she is in Janesville, WI now.
Here is her website: www.gildafk9.com
Nice dogs, reasonable priced and a super nice person/breeder.

Best of luck in your search.

Are you in a PSA club? Might have the best luck asking people with PSA dogs where they got them. Lots of working line dogs are bred more for SchH and as more "sporty". Some are much better suited than others for other protection sports like PSA. I have a male dog from Bill Kulla (Geistwasser, pretty close to Chicago) and he's a great dog, more of a "sport" dog though. I do Schutzhund with him. I know of some people that have a full sister (different litter) and she is being trained as a personal protection dog though. I know of a few other dogs from there that are more PPD/PSA type dogs, really depends on the breeding and sometimes the specific dog, but if you are particularly interested in doing PSA I would look at breeders who are familiar with that and/or people with dogs already training in that venue.

It might help to know what type of working line your looking for?? There are a few different ones. Like Czech, West working, East German DDR, and so on.

Mike Diehl in Indianopolis has a couple of litters - Dan Cox (www.starkenhund.com) in Kentucky has a repeat litter from Chuck and Furious, and a litter from Hutch Dunklin Zwinger daughter and Mike's Irmus...

the particular working line isn't a big deal to me. maybe ddr, because i've known them to be much more "real". i'm just looking for a reputable breeder with serious protection dogs!

Then you should contact Mike about a Kutter puppy. This is NOT a "sport dog" and I know he recently sired a litter of 8 or 10 pups....Kutter is awesome gorgeous and a very balanced, aloof, serious dog. He is Czech and old Belgian lines....awesome dam's pedigree.
