There are quite a few in Ontario here. Hopefully they will chime in.

Given the relative ease of transporting over the border, either direction, I'd suggest you find a breeder whose ethics and breeding program you can stand behind, who is breeding the type of dogs you are looking for, and put location as a secondary criteria. We traveled about 14 hours by car to pick up our boy, met our breeder, stayed a week in the area, etc... And we came home with the right dog for our family. Because that was the most important thing for us. Good luck in your search!

I can't think of many in S. Ontario. I would look to the North of Ontario, and the States.

Forgive me if there are some breeders in S. Ontario that are worth the effort, I am sure there are some, but my personal experience has been dismal.

Actually, there are loads of breeders in Southern Ontario. It depends on what you are looking for. Colour? Show prospect? Obedience? Health testing? Low COI? I can give you some referrals. We are in south western Ontario, but our Spring litter is sold and we will not have other pups ready for at least a year. I do however know some wonderful people who might have litters coming up.

Thanks for everyone's input!

Sarahmurphy- How did you get to know if your breeder if you have to drive 14 hours?

Marylynn- I consider Northern Ontario, anywhere north of Muskoka, Kawarthas. Do I really need to drive that far North?

I thought you guys were up by Ottawa!

That mean's you're close by!

Hehe and no no, I meant GTA and North of Toronto, and West of Toronto.

But looks like I am definitely wrong. When I was looking, I got really bogged down by BYB and questionable breeders in my area, but almost every single breeder that looked good from the surface seemed to be really far away. I think it's nice to be able to find a breeder close by, that way you can maintain easier contact etc.

I spent a lot of time on the phone with her, and e-mail, and have friends who live nearer, who did a lot of behind the scenes checking for me...

We are 40 miles north of Guelph. Where are you? I'd love to meet you! Perhaps you could come for lunch sometime...

I am right in London, and the farm is just 45 minutes Northwest of London. I would say that's about 2hs (shorter if I left from there), and I would absolutely love to come up sometime.
