First off congrats! They are A LOT of work, but when raised properly, they are the best : ) I am getting my puppy in April...I started my search December 2012. I began by doing research on lines and what they did. From there, I found several breeders that fit into what I was looking for. I am going to compete in Schutzhund, so I wanted a dog with the drive and temperament. This will be my first sport dog, so I have a lot to learn. I talked with several breeders to learn more about there dogs lines, abilities, personalities and accomplishments. After all that I decided on a breeder in March 2013. After my application was approved, and vet references were validated, I was approved for a puppy. Then the wait began...My pup will be born the beginning of February. Since I am competing in a sport, I have found a club to join that I really like. I am able to attend training to learn the basics, ask ALL the questions I want, observe, and become familiar with the sport.
The best advice I can give you...is be honest with your goals for both you and the pup. That will help you make the right decision on what you are looking for. Good luck!
