Dog People: I have more questions about German Shepherd Breeders.
Alright, so I know what to look for once I get there. I want to make sure the puppies have a clean place to live, I want to make sure that there aren’t 1000 puppies running around… basic stuff I understand how to pick one based on temperament.
What I don’t know, is all of the terminology German Shepherd breeders throw at you. I work in technology, and I know more than anyone how much some nerds try to take advantage of people by talking over their heads. This is true about mechanics, computer nerds, and anyone doing repairs on your house. Honest people can be really hard to come by. I have a pretty good bullshit detector, but this is a subject I have been reading on for the past 6 months, and I am still lost. A lot of abbreviations in the pedigrees I am pretty sure they just make up!
Anyway, I have narrowed it down to 3 breeders in the state of Ohio. I have not expanded my search outside of my state yet.
Can you look at these websites, and tell me if you see any red flags? I’d rather not drive to them if there are some pretty big warning signs right on the webpage!
Gills German Shepherds I believe is #1 on my list. Basically because it seems like they don’t try to overwhelm you with data, and the guy is a police officer. I figure it may be the best one in the state!
This is second on my list, mainly because she also seems to have a love of the breed. Also, it happens to be only like a 20 minute drive from my office. I know closeness is not a good reason to choose a kennel. However, it is not a good reason to rule one out either.
The third I am a little weary of, but not enough to rule it out just yet. If you look at the pedigree of the dogs… there is a lot of letters there. I know what sch means… and the rest just throws me for a loop.
What do you think of these 3 breeders?
