Finally getting a puppy

Well, it only took a year, but I finally put a deposit down on a puppy with one of the breeders mentioned in the posts. Thanks everyone for your advice and counsel.

glowingtoadfly I also have my dogs' pedigrees in my signature. Plenty of titles and Schutzhund 3's in there, if the OP wants to check it out.

There is some interesting information in this thread and a post from David Winners about trusting your breeder that I feel applies to this thread.

Thanks! Both of my dogs did very impressive work at IPO today, that may help the OP :-)

northwoodsGSD Maybe everyone should start a different thread bashing the breeders they dislike or singing their own praises & let this thread get back to what the OP posted.

To the OP,
If you can go & personally visit the breeders/kennels you like than I highly suggest you do. Meet the breeder & their dogs in person, it'll give you a more realistic idea of which place is a better fit for your wants, needs, & expectations.
One thing you'll find is any breeder that has been breeding long enough(doesn't matter what the animal is) will have folks saying both positive & negative things about them. It's up to you to read between the lines, do your homework & pick what fits you best, not joe blow from down the street.

DonnaKay Mine is also a Buzz Gildaf pup from another breeder. She's very high drive, good temperament and stable nerves. I wasn't considering IPO/Sch but I might look into it. I think whichever direction I decide to take her training, she will do very well.

I think you're kind of equating a dog's breedworthiness to a dog's ability to be a pet/live.

No one is saying that a dog shouldn't be alive or can't make an amazing pet if it can't achieve a certain title. It's just that it probably doesn't need to pass on its genes if all it can do is reach an HIC or a CGC. Those titles don't prove much about the dog, and depending on the breed, other things should be looked at.

In the case of a German Shepherd Dog, the dog should be challenged under pressure, it should be tested under more stress than what the CGC provides.
