I, personally, would not be worried so much about lines as I would about whether or not the breeder has experience with service dogs and choosing puppies/dogs for this area of work. Working line puppies can vary a lot in their drive levels and needs for mental stimulation.
Exercise is not always what is needed (though obviously they do need exercise to stay fit), but a level of mental stimulation that works and thus tires their minds. Games, simple things like trick training, search games, etc can be done in addition to the training you will need for the SD work and to maintain their SD work.
