Default 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: http://www.schraderhausk9.com/index.html

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 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.
