I kind of hate putting names out though.

Suggest you use the 'Search Forums' facility (button above) to check out Mittlewest for yourself - there has been quite a lot said about them on PBD over the years. They have been a hugely successful kennel, in both Show and Work, but some of what was being said in latter years was not flattering.
Would like to be able to help further but I'm not in the US.

also, there are members here who seem to put a lot of effort into their breeding programs. take that for what it's worth.
one i do think is in the midwest and has her own food manufacturing company and has been very helpful in offering advice on where she gets her dogs. another is further away and in Florida, another in Georgia.
a GSL breeder, I think in Alabama or maybe Texas, not sure,
there is one closer to you, across the line in Ky, who I have had dealings with and absolutely no issues and I felt very trustworthy.
another has apparently been banned or maybe chosen not to post anymore, but probably one of the top animal trainers in the world.
I'm just not willing to post anymore names without permission as it often doesn't end well. if you want to PM me, I have no issue telling you some of the ones I would check out if I was in the market. and also, tifiw, as I just wade around in the shallow end of the pool.
probably, the very best choice as you seem to be in an area with many clubs, visit them. in almost every club there are people who breed very good, proven dogs. they are just maybe not "famous" breeders.
hope this helps,

Yes, for sure check out some schutzhund clubs. Some very nice puppies are bred from handlers who breed only occasionally. They often do a breeding for their next dog and are particular about what they want to produce. Also if you go with a more highly advertised kennel you may be paying more for a puppy than from a smaller breeder.
