Our Kolachi was well worth the wait- rock solid temperament, wonderful with kids, socialized beautifully, she was sold as a companion puppy and enjoys working- we've started agility (which she loves), obedience, tracking and even dipped our paws in conformation. You have to make it through a few levels of interviews before you are considered as a buyer- this was a big plus for me-- The breeder is an academic as well as a dog person, so I felt like her research and methodology was cutting edge (she even teaches a canine developmental psychology course!).|

|Jango||Thanks Ihczth, great links. Ok after going thru them this is what I am looking for, german showline breeding, and I want "a pet dog" but I don't want a "cheap one". Definitely willing to pay more for a quality animal. So if anyone has s recommendation around Mn I'd love to hear of them.|

Another thread to read to help you in your search.

Hi Jango. You might check out this thread too for breeders in your area while waiting for more responses.
It also helps if you can post a link to the websites of the breeders you are inquiring about. Makes it easier for people. I have not heard of either of the breeders you listed.

|Jango||I should also add these are both MN breeders and would love recommendations on any breeders in the MN, WI area. We are an active family but are looking for a moderate drive family companion.|

Another MN newbie needs direction.
Hi, I have been lurking and learning on this great site from my home in northern, MN. I have visited a breeder, "coppermoon", and have contacted another, "sablerock", both have beautiful dogs, though the latter only seems to communicate thru email so that's been a bit awkward, so I would love to hear if any here have a dog from either of these breeders. We are looking for a family companion with moderate drive from a good breeder, but how does one know unless you ask others, right?
