When to visit a kennel?

Hey guys

So we've decided to get a puppy next year 2020. Preferably in the spring time.

I have been researching breeders and have a budget of $2,000 for a Sable working line male.

I contacted Ajay Singh and he said he had just recently bred a female but

that's too early for me at the moment. True Haus is 30 min away from where

I live which is very convenient. Would asking to visit a breeders kennel at this

time be way to early? I just want to be prepared and don't want anything to

go wrong but also don't want to a bother to the breeder....

Any other breeder recommendations and advice would be

helpful. Whenever I email a breeder I let them know the various activities

that are planned to be done with the future pup. IPO(although lately have

been considering ring sport), Barnhunt, Dock Diving and lure coursing.

I would frame it in terms of wanting to look at the parents of an upcoming breeding that you are interested in. Ask if you can see the parents and if there is someone available to work the dogs in bite work and obedience. I would think both breeders you mentioned would have someone or be able to work their own dogs for you to see. A good breeder would have no problem with a prospective customer coming and looking at their dogs. If you want a GSD that is likely to do well in ring sport, I would look for a breeder that has breeding stock with titles in ring sport. You need a particular type of GSD to do well, as it is dominated by Mals. The only kennel I am aware of that breeds GSDs for ring sport is in France.
Go to Google and find the link and translate so it comes up in English. These GSDs are smaller, faster, more agile, and have tons of bite drive which makes them specialized for ring sports.
