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.

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.

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.

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.
