I just realized I haven't introduced myself!
I have posted a few times, but haven't done an introduction!
I am technically a first time GSD owner I guess. My family had one briefly when I was younger (was my uncles dog we watched), and my main family pet that I grew up with is a lab/GSD mix. The trainer I did a two year internship has shepherds and always sang their praises. I lived with two shepherds while I did my two year internship as well.
I have worked with the breed quite a bit in my job, and have started to love them more and more. I love their intelligence as well as their work ethic.
I am currently looking for a puppy for a Service Dog Candidate. I didn't think I would be in the market for several years, but my current Service Dog was diagnosed with HD.
I am currently looking at several different breeders. I am located in Washington and am looking for a working line dog. I am fairly certain I want a dog from DDR lines as their build is suitable for my needs, and I have been told that *in general* they are more laid back and handler soft than other lines. I have already gotten great advice here and have learned a LOT from reading through the various threads. :)
Welcome! Sorry about your current service dog with hd. For looking for your pup, I would make sure 3 generations of the parentage has good hips/elbows and parentage is cleared for dm that should stack the odds in your favor :)
I hope you find a fantastic dog, SD's are certainly special :)
