Ontario member here... (Kitchener) but train in Hamilton and Toronto and sometimes Windsor.
Where abouts are you located? Which breeder are you looking at? If you are in Ontario and looking for a dog for sport, I recommend looking at Von Datschiburg (Von Datschiburg - German Shepherd Breeder). Know several pups and dogs from this kennel and Jurgen and Jen will not steer you wrong.
Some other breeders I would check out would be April Lensen's dogs (don't think she has a website yet - but you can look at her dogs on the database - vom Lensenhaus I believe is her kennel name. Great dogs for sport and very stable for everyday life. Great lady to talk "dog" with as well.
And if you like showlines that can work and have some nice drive and fight to them, I would talk to Frank Caputo as I believe he is expecting a litter very soon. He has some great dogs and if I was interested in a showline to work, this would be the man I go too for that. He is a great guy (amazing actually) and is very supportive and informative.

Hi, from Canada!
I am in the process of getting a GSD for my family and for IPO sport...
I have been researching for years, and I think I have a breeder I like, just not sure if I can visit the parents first (pretty far away).
Anyways, if you know of or are involved in a training club in Ontario, let me know! My next step is finding a good club.
Thanks! talk to you soon.
