Default Reputable breeders in MN

Hello, we are looking for a reputable GSD breeder in MN. We live in southeast MN so Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Iowa are possibilities. We visited on kennel today in Wisconsin, but the puppies were all $5000 which is a little more than we wanted to spend. We were hoping to keep it under $2000 if possible. This will strictly be a family dog for myself, wife, and our current 9 year old female GSD. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thank you for the help!

For that money $5000, you must be looking at showline kennels?
IF not, I would go here...so far, this is the only breeder in MN that I could recommend~working lines however:
Staatsmacht Kennel, one of the top working lines kennel in the world

Staatsmacht is the only breeder I can recommend in MN, but they are only workingline dogs. The other, another workingline breeder, is down by Chicago, but is also producing some darn nice dogs.

Thanks for the replies. I can surely get in contact with both of these suggestions, but any idea what pricing should run. Under 2K? We are by no means experts so I apologize for the questions, but we just want to make sure we are getting a fair deal.

Working line pups are running $1500 - $2000 - for $2000 the sire should be a World Competitor or top National level dog IMO....

You can still find showlines at a reasonable price too I believe....Heurta Hof may be within a reasonable distance of you...not sure....they were recommended for training to a young man by another showline person recently at the Nationals....
