I have known the Reeds (True Haus) personally for years, used to train with them. They are honest, great to work with, and they stand by their dogs. They strive for the best, and have some excellent working bloodlines. I will say, their dogs are not generally "beginner" dogs.

I would focus on type right now. You've got a couple WGSL breeders, a great WL breeder, and then one that looks more like a broker (selling trained imports, both types). Why research breeders that are selling something you may not have any interest in? Narrow down what type or lines works best for you and focus on those breeders. These breeders would probably ask you why you want one of their dogs.

I agree, you have to decide whether a working line or show line is best for you. It may actually be helpful to talk to breeders of both lines, if they are willing to spend time educating a someday-wannabe-GSD owner.

Breeders are busy folks and don't always have a lot of spare time to answer emails or talk on the phone for hours. However, some breeders enjoy educating, whether it results in a sale or not, and will talk your ear off given half a chance.

But just keep in mind, if you have questions, keep them as concise as possible. An experienced breeder could go on for days over a seemingly simple question such as "what is the difference between show and working lines?" or "what is the goal of your breeding program?". If you ask a lot of questions at once, it can be overwhelming, and may cause a delay in responding.

So keep it straightforward and right to the point. But do ask questions. You are doing important research. Just don't hold it against the breeder if they do not respond quickly (or at all). Like I said, some enjoy educating, others don't, and many simply need to limit their correspondence to those who are actively looking for a pup.

I agree, best to start fresh and easy. Still enjoy and live life the best my Gs and I can. I love getting out there into the world being active, youthful. Doggie competitions sounds like a lot of fun. Wish ppl would get out more with their dogs.

Maybe a good exercise (in addition to getting out and meeting different types of GSds) is to google "working line" vs "show line", German, Check, Belgian, American etc. and really dig into the different types instead of asking for ratings on different breeders. You can also read threads on THIS forum about that (instead of creating new ones)

When you are close to making a decision and actually buying then people will be more than willing to help you out.

You get the same advice every. Single. Time. you post one of these threads- think about what type of dog you want. You're all over the place with the breeders you post- think about what your needs are, wants are, what kind of dog your lifestyle will suit and start from there. Once you've figured out what kind of GSD you want (after meeting dogs, talking to owners, etc), THEN look at breeders.

Don't get tge wrong ideas. This thread is not for me and not looking for advice. Not getting a new dog for awhile, right now just be around dogs. Know a lot of dogs personally and go out there to meet others. Been busyvwith school, family, and friend business so had no time for rescue organizations or spca. Need to make up for lost time I regret not taking. On the bottom line, This is just about education on breeders.
