Breeders in or near Spokane
Hi - I'm new to this forum. I'm looking for a GSD puppy and would like to visit the breeder before we buy. I have seen great reviews for vom Theishof, but live too far to visit. I saw on her site that her main sire has impregnated 2 Theishof dogs now owned by a new breeder - vom Stormie's Zwinger - in Spokane. I will be able to visit Spokane. I was wondering if anyone has heard of this breeder, and has any advice? Are there any other breeders in Spokane that are reputable?

Personally, I would look to the West side of the state, as there are some fabulous breeders there. I haven't heard of Zwinger. I do like Heidi Theishof.

Here is one from the other side:

I highly recommend Schraderhaus. Jean is great to work with. Here is a recent pic of my schraderhaus boy at 16 months. If you contact her tell her Eli's mom referred you. :)

Vom Haus Vianden is in Post Falls, ID, about half an hour from Spokane. Our tracking instructor has two dogs from there and is very pleased. I really like her younger dog- he's a therapy dog and a total sweetie. As always, do your own research in terms of health checks and visit the parents in person.

I also have a pup from schraderhaus and am very happy with her

I can second Vom Haus Vianden. I perosonally know Charlotte. And Reading the description of the dogs from Kaimeju I have a feeling she may be talking about Debbi with Tash and Quig? Very nice dogs.

Guardyan Kennels - Home I also know Shyne.

Another Idaho breeder to check out, closer to you. I have not heard of vom Stormies Zwinger but if Heidi recommends I would at least check it out.

Thanks for all the help everyone! I'm definitely going to check out the links you all posted. I was also recommended vom Banach - does anyone have any experiences with them?

I'm going out to visit Stormie this weekend, to see her set up and meet the parents. All I know about her is that she's fairly new to Spokane and is just getting set up with breeding. She moved out from Alaska and is recently retired. I was just hoping that maybe someone had a bit more info about her, but it seems she's pretty under the radar!

We currently have a 5.5 yr old Malinois/GSD mix, Frankie (likely working line, based on her build, but we got her from a shelter so we don't know for sure). She has a fairly high drive and is quite high strung. She's a great dog, but she was a handful when she was younger! We're looking for a more mellow dog this time, and it would be a companion/pet. We'd be doing a bit of obedience, agility and scent work, but it would be at the hobby level.

Is Stormies zwinger located in Spokane? When I google it, it looks like a breeder closer to Colville has the dog?

I think Waldkeonig/Timberhaus is near Wenatchee and I'm not 100% sure, but I think is connected in some capicity to Schraderhaus, pehaps someone can verify this. I can't recomend them, only say that I've been looking at/interested in them myself.
