Mike, I am not a breeder, but I only ran across a few websites in my search for a good local breeder that required a questionairre be filled out before they would even speak to me. If there is a phone number, I would just try calling, whether you filled out a form or not, since you definitely are a serious buyer, so you would not be wasting their time. I had the best luck over the phone, I think that also helps them get a feel for you and what your level of experience is.
Also, I think sometimes they are just really busy, since most of them have day jobs and/or kids to raise in addition to their dogs, and do shows and agility certain evenings and weekends, sometimes. Of the breeders I spoke to who I found online, even though they had e-mail contact info, etc., didn't always regularly check e-mail and preferred to talk on the phone, regardless.
