@Carmspack: Thank you for your kind words. It's not too often we get thanks for what we do and when we do, it speaks volumes.
I trust the breeder completely. I just want to make sure I'm going into this with all the knowledge I can. We are also still doing SAR training...well...taking a break right now because of my back, but hope to be back soon. My fear is that, if he is at a breeder for a week at a time, I would hate to interrupt his training once we get started back up every 3 or 4 months. I am also not sure if I want to do anything without him having a title- more than just CGC. I might decide to just hold off and work my way into the Obedience Trial world with Finn, then the next dog I go into him (or her) with the full intention of Trials and Breeding.
You are right, some dogs just don't have it in them, but, and maybe it's just me being the optimist, but I think it's there in every dog, it just has to be accessed in a different way, or it comes out in a different way.
@jocoyn: We don't train exclusively with the police. Every six months we have to go through the same test we had to go through to get on the team: Reaction to loud noises, unsteady surfaces, children, other dogs, if he is willing to leave with a stranger, and a few other things that I don't remember off the top of my head. I would love to get an objective opinion, tis why I'm here.
As for frozen, I'm working with a great AI specialist who came highly recommended. The group has a pretty good success rate. Depending on what you do, frozen v. fresh, there isn't too much of a difference in success rates.
@Blitzkreig1 & Freestep: I would love to help start a strong, WGSD working line. Funny you should mention health or temperment associated with the color. I've been told by severak different trainers that Whites are more aggressive, 'dumber', and are deaf or blind. When we first got him, we tried to go to a Puppy Play Class, but they refused to let us join the class because the said that Whites are very aggressive and they were afraid he would attack the other animals. My dog has never shown any aggressiveness towards humans or animals. He is probably the most loving dog I've ever had.
If anything, I would love to show that, WGSDs are just as good as any other color GSD. They are just as friendly, loving, playful, and have the same drive and ability to work that the other dogs of a different color do.
