Default East Coast Working Line Breeders

My search begins. Looking at next year sometime. Anywhere from Kentucky -> East and North Carolina -> North. I would like them to be in driving distance to meet dogs in person.

I have a short list which I'll be expanding on once my weekends settle down and I can get to some SchH events to watch the dogs....

sooo......what working line breeders have you bought from? Why are you happy with them?

Sunflower - what do you like about your dog and breeder? Do you work your dog? Any sports? how are his drives and working ability? Any reactivity outside the norm?

Blackthorn Working German Shepherds in Virginia. Three of the dogs on our SAR team are from there, and I'm really impressed with them. I think Christine is a member here as well?

If you want to include Tennessee, Sequoyah Kennels outside of Chattanooga has some very nice dogs as well.

Thanks Neo93! She is a member and is on my list already. Chattanooga is a hard days drive from here so I'm on the fence on Sequoyah...not because I don't like their dogs...just because I want a breeder a little closer and there are so many good ones on the east coast that I don't think I would be narrowing my choices.

If you're willing to go to Canada I've been extremely happy with my breeder Stalworth Kennels. They're about a hour south of Ottawa and most of their dogs go to either service or police work. They have great bloodlines and their dogs are raised in the house with their two young children, cats, fish, even a parrot lol.

He's got a excellent temperament and is very easy to train, he's very solid in new situations and loves playing but also has a good "off switch" . I wouldn't hesitate to go back for another dog from them. They also has a good guarantee on both health and temperament. I send regular updates and they've already told me they'd take him back for boarding anytime and welcome visits. They really love their dogs and they will ship the puppy to you if needed

Narnia was on my short list

DRAT.

I had a huge post typed and it got kicked out because I had to go answer the door.

Will reply again later. The dog has nerves of steel, in my opinion. Reacts well even in situations where I wouldn't expect him to, such as the storm the other night. Barked at lightning, then went outside and did his business with flashing lights all around him, and all he did was pee and look around with ears forward.
