Question Looking for Breeder - Experience with these?

I've been researching for some time and with so many breeders online it's hard to make a decision without your help!

I live in the Dakotas and would appreciate the convenience of proximity, but am more than willing to pay for shipping from a more distant breeder. I'm looking for my dream GSD: German working lines, interested in DDR, possible Czech. I speak German and will be using German commands.

I'm not new to training dogs in obedience, I've owned dogs all my life, but have "0" experience when it comes to training working dogs. I am ready to start off and have invested over a year in research and want to start with the right dog.

I'm hoping to keep it < $2k. I want to work up from the beginning.. looking for protection/sport, companion.

Any breeder recommendations?

Any experience or thoughts on these breeders:

Default Von Der Haus Gill

I have a female from Haus Gill. She is CZECH/DDR. She is a very nice dog! Of course I think my dog is the smartest thing ever. The process dealing with Haus Gill was nice from visiting the kennels and leaving deposit to picking up the pup.
My only bad thing was not getting Registration Papers for 2 years. I also got a DDR female from a friend that purchased from Haus Gill, again.....very nice soild female.....and again 2 years to get the papers. So if you are pressed to have papers right away then probably not the place. Mr. Gill was very helpful through all of that and I should note that as well. He was very informative as far training goes and is quite knowledgeable. If you are looking in the Ohio Kentucky region you might want to try

My GSD is out of their kennel and when they say high drive, they are HIGH DRIVE. Almost more than I could honestly handle.

But beautiful and very healthy dogs!

They are just south of Helena, MT.

My searching has only found good things about Haus Gill. Their website is pretty encouraging.

I have a deposit down on what I believed was the best litter possibility out of Gaardog. There was bad sickness in the litter and a male was lost, the others made it out and are getting better. I'm hesitant to select from the remaining males.

Could anyone look at this litter and pedigree and offer opinions?

I like haus Gill more than the Gaard dog as far as getting a good solid dog. But that is just an opinion.

I know the breeders at True Haus, they are great folks to work with and are breeding some great working dogs.

Besides Gaardog, I am unfamiliar with the other two breeders you posted. Other people on the boards may chime in more regarding those options.

Since you are in the Dakotas, there is this breeder in MN who has been recommended that breeds working line GSD's.

Staatsmacht Kennel, one of the top working lines kennel in the world

Dartagnan and Kafi Litter 3 This is one of her popular repeat litters. Dartagnan is the full brother to my Sting - same litter. Dartagnan really has a great temperament wants to please very easy to train - Anne told me that she had been waiting a long time to get one with a temperament like his. I don't know about Kafi but I have heard from someone in New Jersey who posted on another thread that he is real pleased with his GSD - that was from the same breeding. But as far as I know he is not working his dog in any sport. Anne takes real good care of her puppies and dogs. You say you want a working line dog - and that isn't this litter or any of hers. Anne's breeds primarily companion (pet) dogs and the not strict working lines. If you are really serious about a working line GSD, you will want to make sure the parents are titled. Whatever breeder you chose, the health of the parents is really important (OFA on hips and elbows or the German equivalent and preferably 3 generations back) and the parentage cleared for DM. In this breeding, there is no DM clearance, Dartagan has an OFA rating but Kafi has none. So my suggestion, is if I were you I would look elsewhere. You may want to consider a young adult or an adult dog - Minneapolis has an active K9 rescue and often has working line GSDs or Malinois.
