Thank you for the outstanding advice. I really appreciate all of it, it's given me much more information than I could have gathered on my own.
To clear a few things up, I decided not to import and I'm still looking for the right breeder than will be willing to ship a lovely woofer here to Canada and will be able to continue an extensive relationship with me. Still looking for suggestions and imput on breeders!
I would NOT buy a male and female to breed them. I understand that it doesn't work that way, I was just thinking of starting with a female and a male - finding the female a mate and seeing how the male develops and possibly offering him as a stud (depending on what titles he achieves, what kind of dog he is, etc) and MAYBE breeding the two of them if they are a suitable match. I've just always dreamt of working with a male GSD, so I kind of clung to that idea. Please don't think I would just buy two dogs and breed them, that is certainly not the case.
Also, the point of my getting a German Shepherd is to train, title and live with them as my 24/7 companion. I love the Schutzhund sport! I definitely will be training and titling any dogs that come into my family, ESPECIALLY if I have plans of breeding.
Now, my next step is the learn everything I can about genetics, working lines and pedigrees. Anyone have any resources I can use to learn all about this? I am going to contact my nearest Schutzhund club to try and get involved with them (If you know of any in Ontario, Canada, please let me know!) so I can begin learning. I'm hoping to get my first dog within a year, depending on how it all works out, and start training in Schutzhund.
Advice is appreciated beyond anything, because I trust you all the most and have the utmost respect for so many of you! Thanks again!
