Anyone knows Sylmarc Breeders, in Quebec?

Hi all,
I live in the Ottawa, Ontario region and I am currently looking to adopt a GSD from a working line.
We want a family companion that will also be our jogging partner, our protector, the house guardian, etc. A dog that will not be rattled by much and that will yet be safe to have around children.
We will for sure do obedience and although I am a neophyte, I would like to do some schutzhund/protection, eventually.
I one day drove in front of this Breeder and I am wondering if anyone knows about them and the dogs they breed/sell.

Any feedback would be appreciated!

What a small small world!

When I was interested in doing Sch with Ky ... that's where I went! He was extremely nice (tres francais - can't find the accents on my keyboard) and his grounds ARE as beautiful as you see in the pictures. He does have all the blinds, etc set up.

I don't know anything about his breeding program, but the people that I was meeting with spoke VERY highly of him and the work he does - both with breeding and Sch. I don't even have an ounce of understanding any of his lineage, so won't even comment.

The group of people that I met with out there were wonderful, and they were the ones that made me realize I'm just not cut out for Sch ... WAAAYYYYY to much work ... (you'd be doing A LOT of travelling if you join that group. Papineauville is about an hour from Ottawa - I live here too - and then there's more travelling to Montreal.

Good luck with them if that's who you decide to go with.

No problem ... any other "breeder" from Quebec, I'd be very leery of unless someone on here KNOWS them ... I'm sure you know what I mean!

Hmm... not exaclty sure what you mean. I would not buy a dog from anywhere (being in Quebec or elsewhere) without solid recommendations.

Quebec is notorious in the dog world for puppy mills and bad breeding (Paws R Us for example )because of very lax provencial laws. So if you're looking at a breeder there you have to be extra vigilant

That's EXACTLY what I meant ... Paws R Us was closed down and now apparently they are back up and running somewhere else

BUT many many websites / referrals will also HIGHLY recommend them. I don't want to go into any more details b/c of the rules on the forum regarding "bad mouthing" breeders ... let's just say be VERY cautious in Quebec

Oh! I see. Thanks for the advice!

There is actually a breeder from Quebec that pops up when doing a google search and I was curious as they currently have puppies available and it seems like their bloodline is 100% German.
www.angesgardiens.ca/ANG/German-Shepherd.htm

Does anyone here know about their dogs?

I am eagerly awaiting feedback from carmspack but with all the rave reviews, I am somewhat affraid that the asking price will be above what I can justify to buy a GSD, given everything else it involves in terms of expenses.

I have never heard of them (Syl-Marc), so I'll let those with personal experience comment.

Just wanted to point out that both their breeding females are show lines, and of the two studs they have, only one is a working line.

So they would be breeding 100% show lines, or with the working line stud, 50% working line.

Could have great dogs, and certainly show lines can produce what you are looking for, but they are not working line breeders.

Price wise, most breeders run between $1,000 to $2,000 for WL pups, depending on the lineage and parents's titles. SL can be a little more
