|Castlemaid||I did not see any bashing at all. I think the OP decided to go with another breeder for personal reasons. However, I did remove references to the breeder as the OP has contacted me about some behind-the-scene issues.|

Posts / threads typically aren't edited unless forum rules are broken. Posters need to think before they submit something to the board. Once it's posted, it's there forever.
If we started editing posts for people after the time limit, it would take hours a day.
I'm not a mod in this section. If you want to contact that moderator, report the post. I doubt it will do any good though.

To a mod/admin: I would really like to see this thread taken down, or my first post edited out. A few people have interpreted this thread as an attack on the mentioned breeder, and that wasn't my intent.
If at all possible, I would seriously appreciate this thread being deleted or my first post being edited out, or even just the mentions of the breeder removed. I've contacted several mods and an admin via PM. How else should I go about this request?

OP, I also highly recommend Heidi Theis. I am local to her and have spent time with her and her dogs. Her dogs are exceptionally nice and Heidi is the real deal.
I own a TeMar dog. I am sending you a PM in order to follow forum rules.

|Messa||I also want to add that my comment about raising pups in a 'family environment' was meant to imply that it would be beneficial for me if the pup was raised in the home with basic obedience and good house manners. I understand why the breeder trains her pups the way she does--all her breeding dogs are schutzhund titled and many of her pups are prospects. As many of us here know, many schutzhund pups aren't trained in obedience until later in life.|

I would just like to post an update to clarify a few things in my original post.
As I said, I am very impressed with both the breeder and her recommended trainer as well as her dogs. I am upset that I myself lost my opportunity to have a dog from her, but that doesn't change the fact that her dogs and her practices are Top notch.
Anything price related was absolutely not in reference to her dogs--her puppies are very fairly priced at $2000 which seems to be the standard of WGSL puppies across North America.

My puppy is incredibly sweet and handler sensitive. (I will also say he is way too smart for his own good.)
I could see my boy being a therapy dog.
I can not speak about Mary at TeMar's as she was not the breeder of my boy. So I cannot give a personal recommendation about TeMar in regard to breeder support, contracts, etc.
My pup's dam just had a litter by another sire, the breeder is in WA state but does NOT ship. (Both parents are calm and sweet.)

|Messa||vom Theishof hasn't popped up on my radar at all, so I'll definitely start looking into her. I know of TeMar and have read a lot about Mary, so it's good to hear TeMar recommended again.|
