Default Breeders in Nothern CA

HI.
Has anyone ever purchased a dog through Zwinger vom Donau-Ries? I can not find much information on the breeder because they are fairly new. I have spoken to the breeder, seems to be creditable, the kennels are great, I just have not seen a lot reviews on them.

I have put a deposit down on a puppy at True Haus Kennels. I am very happy with them, I only have positive things to say about them and their dogs. However, the wait seems to be getting longer and longer. I am considering getting a dog from them later down the road and keep my deposit with them.

Possibly getting a puppy from the other breeder because my husband and I want 2 dogs 6-9 months a part..

Thoughts?

I don't know her, but I think she does a lot with Randy Tyson. You should go out to Menlo Schutzhund in Newark and meet some folks there, see some of the dogs first hand.

I have met a few dogs from Christina. The two I have spent the most time with are super nice dogs. I know the owners are happy as well.

What is your reasoning for having two so close together?

@cassidysmom
Although this is not the main reason or concern of my post...

its not a for sure thing that we would get them that close in age but ideally that is what we would like for our family. If it didn't work out that way and we want to wait longer that wouldn't be a problem either. We would just eventually like 2 dogs similar in age.

I realize that. It can be challenging to raise two pups so close in age at the same time, most people would advise waiting to get a second dog once the first one is fully trained, so I was just curious. If you and your husband have thought it through, understand the challenges, and have decided that's what you both really want, carry on. A breeder might be concerned about whether or not you have the time and resources to train two strong young dogs at the same time though, which is part of the reason I asked.

Well, I guess we just have to wait and see. We may have to wait longer depending on how easy or hard our first pup is. Regarding, the second dog.. truly I am in no rush, it is partly because of the deposit we already have and now wanting to switch breeders. We do have the time and resources. But for now one is perfect... just deciding on what breeder to do is the issue now... Do you have any views on the two?

I have no personal experience with either, but they both seem to have good reputations.

Yay!!! Time for twenty questions. ready go!
What are your plans for the dog? Active family pet? Sport/working? If you're looking into sports, which ones? Have you met dogs from either Kennel? What were your thoughts? Are you going after a specific litter or line?
