Default Woodside German Shepherds?

I am trying to help a client select a breeder and was wondering if anybody knows Woodside kennels in Canada. I don't know many show line breeders and this is the kennel she was looking at.

Has anybody worked with this kennel or any of their dogs?

Thanks!

To clarify, I would consider this high ASL to differentiate between the showlines (German/American). Woodside shows up in quite a few top-shelf ASL pedigrees, if not most at this point. They have a very recognizable look and it passes well. I have not worked directly with this kennel but I have a good friend in the breed who bought a pup directly from them. I can get you into contact with her if you'd like to hear more about what she went through with the poor pup.
That said, I have a few dogs with a nice Woodside sire in their pedigree that I have worked with personally. He's a very nice dog with very weak ears, definitely a carefree joker of a dog. He moves well and has great pigment. I worked with him for about 6 months and never had an issue. He produced more bone than he showed himself, repeatedly.

Sam is from Woodside... I just got her a few weeks ago. I didn't get her for showing though. She has tummy problems - when I emailed the breeder about giardia (confirmed) she did not get back to me. I did not see the parents of the pup either when I picked her up. Sam is what I'd call a "soft" dog too which is making socializing really difficult and I'm going to have to work with her a lot to avoid any potential aggression problems.

If you have any questions just shoot me a message.

I should have specified that she is looking for ASL, sorry!

She is looking to possibly show but the puppy is mostly going to be a pet.

I will check my PMs, thanks!

I had a dog from Woodside Shepherds and Phoenix (my Woodside dog) also had digestive problems as well as temperament issues. This kennel is your typical show line breeder and that's why when we put him down (at 10 years from cancer) we got a new GSD and I specifically looked for working line breeders. Bishop Vom Banach is the healthiest dog I had. Friendly and solid nerves. Parents both imports. They do it right in Germany / Czech.

Also, Woodside's Phoenix , my dog, was CKC registered but there was an issue with the ownership of the sire, Navigator, which made it next to impossible to get that transferred to AKC. Sandy Anderson was no help.

For what it is worth, I met Sandy Anderson and her new Grand Victor Woodside's Megabucks at the recent GSDCA National Specialty. I watched Buck win the Grand Victor title and got to meet him at ringside. He is a big boy.

My male Niko's sire is Woodside's Jubilate Eye of the Tiger. There are a couple other Woodside's in the pedigree as well. Niko moves beautifully, is very nice looking and strong, has good hips and elbows. He is a bit underconfident and sharp. Highly food motivated and has lots of ball drive. I did not get him directly from Woodside's, but rather from a breeder in Upstate,, NY.

Actually, the breeder here in the States did it right. Two imports put together without a goal in mind can produce a total disaster.
