|Yeah, you're on the right track with finding your local GD club or breeders' association. Find out what events they have coming up this summer (that's often when clubs have their big meetups and events) and go. Really watch the dogs and find out who owns the ones you like.
I've found it's pretty easy to talk to dedicated dog people (and I'm not great socially) I say "I've really been admiring your dogs. If you have time would you mind telling me about them?" Very rarely will someone day "Nah I don't like talking about my gorgeous dogs that I've worked so hard to breed well, train, and trial" They may not have time right then, so I just ask if/when we can catch up later. I LOVE talking about dogs, so this part is fun. After a bit you can start asking if any litters are in the planning stages. Best of luck to you in your search!
