|LoveEcho||I'm in NH also, and have a dog from Abby Kennels who I adore. Kevin is a class act, knows his stuff, and is great to work with.|

new York is a little too far to drive so it looks like the list of reliable/reputable breeders is:
von hena c
Any other recommendations on breeders, or warnings for breeders to definitely stay away from? thanks for the help so far

Spend the summer going to clubs, regionals, trials. Watch the dogs and when you find the ones you like, research them.

If you are on fb, this page has a listing of breeders and studs(they have to meet the SV standards to be listed). You could post on there as well....request to join the page, it is a good one. https://www.facebook.com/groups/100827050053129/
Many times "meeting both parents" is not reasonable as many stud's are not on the breeders premises. If I were you, I'd go to some clubs and see dogs training, make contacts locally/learn about the different dogs. Or if you see a stud you like, find out who is breeding to him and research the pedigree(outcome).
Good that you are doing diligent research before you settle on a breeder!

I had a male who's sire was von hena c , so am familiar with her dogs, as I said tho, I don't think they are high sport material, but I have met quite a few of the dogs out of her kennel, and have liked them, middle of the road, not over the top, good obedience dogs.
Ryanhaus, I know pretty well from forums/FB, and going thru her website, I like what she's producing/what she 'does' with her dogs. Very versatile. Wolfiesmom a member here has one of her dogs, he's quite a character She's on my radar for maybe a future dog. (Lets put it this way, I wouldn't turn one of her dogs down
Liberatore, I know of via a friend who trains with her, (and thru the forums)if you look at her website, she also does her own training/trialing of dogs, has alot of accomplishments, pulls no punches, she places her puppies in alot of working homes. She is highly respected in the working dog community and well, knows her stuff
I forgot about Watcher Engel in CT, I don't know them personally, but have heard good things about them.
I would suggest, since you aren't looking for a puppy tomorrow,,go visit any of the breeders listed above, meet them, meet their dogs.

You could also check with Carol at Watcher Engel in Connecticut. She should have the kind of dog you're looking for!
