Out of curiosity,, have any of y'all flown to Germany to Hand pick your pup?
I have friends that go to Japan every year to buy koi... so to fly to Germany doesn't seem that far fetched.

I got mine from two different breeders. They both are six hours away in different directions.

We got lucky and the breeder was only an hour and a half drive from us. That was not a factor in which breeder we picked, we just got extremely lucky.

Dazzle's breeder is southwest of Atlanta about 7 hrs one way. My first GSD, Cain, was from NH so about 26 hrs one way.

Dazzle's breeder met me in the panhandle of FL when she came home and shaved a couple of hours off the trip. I get up to train with her club several times a year.

I flew to NH to pick Cain up and then drove back to FL. Both trips for each dog was well worth the time involved. Puppies were already bonded to me by the time we made it home

I feel guilty, but not too much. We're lucky. Our breeder & friend is about 1 mile away. It's nice to see the parents often, and Ben's sister that the breeder kept.
