First and foremost I would be looking for breeders that are actually out there working and titling their dogs AND have successfully picked puppies for others that have gone on to title. They should have a far better feel as to whether or not one of their dogs would be suitable for you and your goals. Then they should also be able to pick the right puppy for you.
I am partial to WGWL, but have included some older DDR working lines and would consider some Czech depending on the dog and the cross. You might find the pure Czech and DDR dogs more difficult to train especially for a first time handler (especially the DDR dogs bred now). For a novice I would put more trust in an experienced breeder than my own ability to find the right dog.
Have you visited any clubs? This can also help you not only find breeders, but also get a feel for the sport and the dogs that are out there trialing and titling. When you see dogs you like you can then maybe find out more about how they are bred.
