Working Line Breeder in Ontario
Hi Everyone,

I have been reading up on this forum for some time now and figured it would be appropriate to begin a new thread to ask for some assistance in my puppy search.

I am looking for a working line puppy that I would like to train in Search & Rescue/Tracking. I would prefer functionality over any specific look, coat, etc. I believe a dog with medium drive would be my preference as both my partner and I are very active and we have a large yard for romping around. Although I would like a working line breed the most important factor would be temperament and for a good companion before all else.

I have done some research on breeders around the Southern Ontario Region, but wanted to get some input from the resident experts :).

Thank you!

Are you affiliated with a SAR team yet? That would be my first resource. They will be able to guide you to a breeder that produces what is needed.

there are very very very little prospects into being called out for a search. You must do your proof of interest first as a ground pounder .
There are however other opportunities for dogs with high search skills.
I can recommend tracking clubs .

do you have GSD experience ? do you have tracking training experience.

there is so much to being able to train and read the dog that comes with experience .

I would be completely new to it, So it would be a learning experience for me as well. I just have a great desire to learn more about tracking/ search. Would you be able to tell me which tracking clubs you'd suggest?

Would you happen to know of any potential breeders for a GSD with some tracking potential?
