I just want to comment on the owner of this "business". I love those kind of dogs, I was around them since I was born. Looking for the dog I have chosen Holtzberg kennel because I thought those people care. So I've got the dog from them. I sensed already big communication problem whenever I started asking questions. This surprised me because good breeders love to talk about their dogs. So afraid that they may shut me down I stopped asking and got the dog. I was at the end of the waiting list and I didn't really have much choice in picking. All the best potential working puppies (after all those super duper tests) were already picked up. When my dog started growing up it appeared she had extremely high working drive and from the other side she was very friendly, gentle dog especially with little kids. This made me really happy. Working her, I was even approached once or twice by the police with the proposition of selling the dog and I've seen also jealousy in some other dog professionals . Me and my dog, we developed very strong connection since I don't have any family. At the age of 5+ she got cancer and ended her life. I'm devastated and can't get over it. Finally after being strongly advised by all my friends (they have seen my suffering) I contacted the kennel again about the puppy. One litter was on its way so Becky, the owner put me on the list, but there wasn't enough pups. Becky was encouraging me twice or three times to get on the list for the next litter. After couple of days I decided to pursue but as usually since I love to talk about the dogs I started asking questions. She shut me down using an excuse that she doesn't have a dog as I had before and I won't be able to handle their dogs because those are dogs with high working drive.
This really hurts considering that my best friend is dead at the age of 5 and the kennel owner not even knowing what she sold to me is using my dog (indirectly) as an silly excuse.
Both times when I was applying for the puppy the owner didn't even try to know about me anything, my feeling was, just pay the money and do whatever you want with the dog.
If anyone knows caring breeders in the North West or around with affordable, DDR/Czech sable shepherds please let me know. Thank you.

the site has youtube videos of the grand parents but not any videos of the sire or dam. that right there is a huge red flag to me. nothing more annoying then bragging about dogs you dont even own.
just because michael jordan is a great bball player doesnt mean his sons are physically talented

their dogs are titled. isn't that working the dog?

When it comes to diagnosis, the crappiest thing about DM is that it cannot be truly diagnosed until after the dog has died. Very few people are going to allow a necropsy on their beloved pet.
