|One of my contacts recommended another.....Narnia. They'd be a day away, in New Brunswick, but maybe worth it. They focus on import lines and working dogs, but unlike a lot of the rest stick with their female families, so they know their pedigrees very well, which alas isn't always the case. They have been breeding for a long time, good rep. They had some OTCHs up in Canada, as well as working K9s, etc. They are very good with the health testing, do full panels, including DM. Good for you to think of if you want a more moderate dog, as theirs are that surely. You'll get more engine with this sort of dog vs an American, but they are ethical and breed for more of a midline, with the pet owner in mind, as be it for "just pets" or the weekend warriors, when it comes to GSDs that is the main population breeders dogs go to. They really find that balance.
If I am mentioning NB, also cannot fail to mention Bullinger, which is one of the finest kennels in the world. Period. They compete in SV type competitions, which is the German show structure. Stunning dogs with a lot of working temperament, very well balanced, though. A lot of people who wanted to do OB have worked with Bullinger and gotten on a nice dog. She's also been on her females for a very long while, and of all the breeders in North America on import lines, her producing families are amongst the most actively pursued....exceptional producing female families, they go really deep. Her male Utah is drop dead gorgeous and doing everything right as a sire. These are "elite" pedigrees....some of the finest in the world. Dogster Bianca is from a Bullinger bitch. Tracy, the brains behind Bullinger, is a naturally gifted person and a great mentor for anyone to have, but if you went Bullinger your SO would really need to be up for investing in his dog....they aren't couch ornaments and need something to do.
