Even if I had the networking needed, the experience to hand pick for myself.... I wouldn't because I can find what I want here in the US. If I found the perfect dog/breeder, I would probably travel to Canada... but that's about it.
I know people who have done this though. My trainer/Storm's breeder has. But that's because he has very tight networking all over Europe, and he knows what to look for and what he wants for his program. He's trained overseas, lived overseas, and his dogs have gone overseas. So I can understand why he does it.... I just wouldn't though. Not unless I was a breeder or highly ranked competitor and that was the ONLY way to get a specific line I wanted. For pets, and hobby training... nah. Many great breeders here.
