Amaretto flew in from Chicago to Toronto. The trip took 8 hours for her, though it should've been a shorter flight. Airport is only 30 mins away from me.

I wish I lived closer to train with my breeder, and hope that we get to meet one day. They are AMAZING for support over the phone and email.

We live just south of the Twin Cities and the breeder of our newest pup is about 80 miles away. He also trains, so we have been going up there a couple times a month.

The breeder of our other GSD is about a four hour drive from us.

Although the last puppy I bought was flown in I knew the breeder personally, had been to her house, trained with her, knew her dogs and we had been friends for several years. I have never purchased a pup from anyone I have never met in person and had met their dogs or dogs they had produced. My first GSD was from a breeder about 1.5 hours away.

Kiya was the last pup I had purchased from a breeder, she was shipped from OH to Long Island NY, no worse for the wear when I picked her up that night.

2 hours driving time to Huerta Hof...and I drive there every weekend for training and "socialization" (socialization for ME...not my dog )

It's worth every second of the drive!
