If you plan on training and competing then there are better options out there. If not, then either will do ok.

The breeder at Narnia kennels just won the New England 2013 IPO Regionals with her female with a very nice performance.

I have been told by SAR handlers in Canada that Narnia breeds some great search dogs.

I disagree with Packen on Blackthorn, considering what Christine has put out there, but that's my opinion. She's got dogs in service work, SAR, IPO, various AKC events, etc.

I have a Blackthorn dog that is my service dog in training and should be ready to work full time by late spring/early summer. His sister (from the repeat litter) belongs to my good friend and is her guide dog.

The first step is to make a list of the major championships (Bundesseiger, WUSV etc), Next step is to list the winners for several years. Third step is to list the breeders of these dogs. Final step to make selection. Pretty black and white, performance does not lie

Dunno, but getting the right dog improves ones chances of success even at club level. Get a dog bred for club level or below and get ready to play those odds, not worth it.

You have plenty of time. There are lots of great breeders out there. Having said that, I one of my three came from a breeder who imported both parents from Robin Winters at Narnia. Robin uses a lot of Czech lines in her program and is very active in IPO. My Narnia daughter tracks like a fiend, and has a monster grip at only 7 months old. Her obedience however is almost non existent yet. There is also another forum member here who imported her dog from Narnia. Her username is Sunflowers. You could send her a pm about her experience. Christine at Blackthorn is a member here on the forum and there are several members with dogs that came from her. She has a very active facebook page. You could follow it for a while and see if you like her program.
