4 hour drive, each way. We've bought 4 dogs from them. We have also gone up for seminars and they have come down here for a visit, so I'm glad they are not too much further away .

About 25 - 20 minutes, if you are counting BYB's. One day I am going to go over there with Knuckles and say "So what do you think of that ugly brown mutt looking pup now?"

Pan is from Marengo, IL and I'm from Grand Rapids, MI so that's about 4-4.5 hrs one way depending on route/traffic.

2 hour drive for me. Lucky I am so close! I was able to visit the litter a couple times before pick up. And we trained there over the past couple years...more upcoming trips when the weather breaks.

20 minutes, he was the 9th breeder I spoke to. Didn't even know he was here. Saw him Saturday night for drinks and dog talk. I love having him close by so he can help me with anything and we're meeting again on Wed for some training.
