|boeselager||I have dealt with them and they are Very Nice people and very honest!!!! They put a lot into their dogs and work them on a weekly basis. I sold them a dog that I had purchased in Germany she was a very young dog when I sold her to them. Haven't talked to them in a long time though. Last time I did they said they loved her and she is doing incredible!!! I think their ephasis is more on training/titling and rescuing. I do know that they did have 1 or 2 litters when I talked to them, but maybe they stopped for awhile for what ever reason. I know I stopped breeding for 2 1/2 yrs and then decided to start back up. People have their reasons, but I would call and talk to Jamie. She is Very nice to talk to and will help you out if she can, or send you to someone that can.|

|mnm||As I said, they bought the females as young dogs, around a year old or younger.... Can't tell you whether they finished titles or not, but call and talk to Jamie or Jimmy. They can tell you what you want to know. Maybe they have some different dogs now. They had two small kids back then, and they are probably in lots of activities now that keep them busy.|

|GSD07||I agree, Jane. The website visitors are not psychic, they have no idea if the website is or is not updated, they just see what is on that website. This particular breeder would not trigger any interest for further investigation, that's all. It's not any red flag, it's just lack of interest. If it's a wonderful breeder than good for them and their friends, but I would never join their circle which is again, not a bad or good thing. They wouldn't care about me, and I wouldn't care about them, no hurt feelings except maybe some on this board|

If a website isn't up to date and they can't access the site themselves to update it, maybe the breeder should just take it down(if they are paying a fee to keep it)or put a notice up that it isn't updated and have a facebook page linking their kennel with all info on the facebook page(google usually points to fb with key words). More and more breeders have open facebook pages/and closed ones for the owners of their dogs to share updates &communicate with each other.
If I'm just researching breeders by the quality of a website, I don't feel I'm doing my homework. But an outdated one would have me passing over without interest, unless I know more about the kennel and what they are breeding and have bred in the past.

|GSDElsa||So bizarre. How is it a red flag is someone doesn't keep a website up to date???|

I have a friend with an awful out of date website. Several of her current dogs unlisted, several dogs listed (I think) have since passed. Her website is certainly not an indication of what she has, does, or produces.
Bad for business perhaps. But she is not in it as a business.

|GSD07||I don't care about the prettiness of the website but the information on it. If breeders entire program consists of retired stock from different kennels then yes, I'm not impressed, I would not go and investigate if I am in a different state. There are plenty of good breeders around with the same bloodlines. The breeder may be wonderful but I will never know, and that's fine.|

|HeidiGS||I'm happy to hear from you about them, but I'm still not going to make any moves toward a puppy as I'm not near ready.|

screw the stupid website. anybody with some savy or money can impress the **** out of anyone with a website. It's a bit tougher to baffle someone with bull**** when they go experience things for themselves.
