My first dog was from their kennel. They used to be an active kennel...seem to have gone by the way side, change in owner ship etc. They have not updated their web site in years. I would investigate thoroughly before buying.

WD's sire is from that kennel. WD is everything I had hoped for as an active family dog. I am not using him for Shutzhund but for agility and obedience and as a good buddy. And the looks are stunning of those dogs but that is just MHO.
Often you read about solid nerves but in WD's case that shows like nice stable temperament, easily able to deal with unexpected situations.
I would get a dog from that kennel in a heartbeat.

As far as training I would like to know more about obedience and the special techniques used for GSDS that help them excell. Thanks onyx'girl! I will check that book out. She will just be a companion for my family (I know I say "just" but in my mind that is a BIG job in itself). I just don't want to mess things up. I had emailed Dari asking about temperament and she sent me a very in depth email that really reassured me that the lines from the kennel would be suitable. Before booking a pup, I would of course check required clearances, certifications, titles, etc. Plus, I do believe the breeder knows their pups temperaments the best and would let them pick which one would be mine. I could care less about color, would prefer a female, but what really matters to me is sound breeding that produces GSD's with great minds, sound temperaments, and correct conformation.
