Searching for my GSD

Hello all, I am seriously considering my lifetime dream of becoming a GSD owner, thus far I have visited with one kennel and have plans to visit a second. I live in Fort Collins Co. Can anyone recommend a GSD breeder I am a single woman, therefore I want my dog not only for companionship, but for protection as well. I am interested in Schutzhund training. Any suggestions on how to choose my dog?
Thank you and have a nice day.

Welcome from Boulder!

I purchased my pup from Rocky Mountain German Shepherds. They are located in Conifer. There are quite a few breeders out here so depending on what you are looking for (Working Line or Show line) I would recommend visiting a couple of clubs that are doing schutzhund if you are interested in doing that.

What breeder have you visited so far?

Lourdes,
I also recommend posting in the "Choosing a Breeder" section and list your location so that you can get input from others that have experience with breeders in Colorado or other areas that are close.

Hi Lourdes —

You might also want to look into Five Peaks German Shepherds in Elizabeth, CO. We just placed a deposit on one of Roy x Olivia's pups and Elaine has been really great to work with.

kennels/breeders

Hello all, I have been to Fivepeaks 2 weeks ago and Adel Haus is next on my list. I have a concern about Fivepeaks, however I got along famously with Elaine.
THANX

I think if you were seriously looking in to personal protection or schutzhund I would look at Adelhaus. They definitely work and title their dogs there.
I'm not sure if Five Peaks does, although I had spoken with Elaine before I got my pup and she was very nice on the phone.

Be careful, there is a HUGE difference between buying a title and titling a dog.
