|There is certainly no shortage of GSD breeders here in Ontario and, as with most breeds, most are mediocre at best. Needless to say, with a service dog (and especially one which would be protective), you'll have to be extremely careful.
I'm a bit surprised that your trainer has not been able to point you in the right direction? There are a number of other breeds which could suit your needs quite nicely; of these, choice of breeder would be far more important than choice of breed.
From everything you've described, there is one particular local breeder which does spring to mind as being worth taking a close look. Aside from the potential suitability of the breed itself (not a GSD), the breeder has specific and personal experience in this area.
If you're interested, feel free to PM me for the info.
In any event, best of luck in your search!
