i have spoken to Tom on several ocassions. He seems like a great guy. never done business with him so i cant help out in that department. the person who turned me on the TG was Cane76 (RIP). if i did not have a dog already and after all i have learned from GP about dogs and different lines....i think that TG kennels would be top of the list for me. Still learning about the peds so i would rely on the man himself to point me in the right direction.
As for the shipping thing I dont know if I would be willing to ship the Dog from NC to Vancouver Canada seems like a bit of a nightmare for the dog. Doing the whole international things is a pain in the butt since 911. To me it just seems to long of a ride for such a young pup.
