Breeder Questionnaire

Question. Do you health test appropriately (eg hip and elbow X-ray scoring, DNA testing), and understand the genetic issues that may affect your breed? Do you have sensible, sustainable breeding strategies in place to promote the health of your dogs and puppies?
Not sure I understand the question, yes I do hip and elbow xrays plus eye examination/certification and full breed DNA profile.... do I understand the genetic issues that may affect my breed?..I certainly try but even science doesn't understand it all as yet, there is still so much to be learnt. Sensible, sustainable breeding strategies in place to promote the health of my dogs ? Sensible?, I hope so, breeding strategy? well there is a plan..absolutely, and it's all about the health of the dog.
Question. Do you ensure that your puppies are properly socialised?
I start the socialisation process and follow up with information and recommendations for puppy parents to continue. Socialisation should continue way beyond the time the pup is in my care and if puppy parents are unwilling or unable then..... no puppy.
Question. Do you have any of the following: conditions of sale, health guarantee or warranty, de-sexing agreement, a buyer questionnaire, verbal or personal interview?
5 page Qustionaire
Question. Is ensuring that your puppies go to the right home a high priority? What type of measures do you take to ensure your dogs and puppies are going to go to loving homes?
Very much like the process for your website. Yes there is a process, I have criteria for puppy parents. The process starts with the initial contact which is usually very brief, I then forward to them my Puppy Application form and questionnaire......there's about 5 pages of it, I review their answers and may contact them for clarification, I make a decision and then advise whether or not one of my puppies will be suitable for their home. Communication is everything, I have to be able to have a comfortable relationship with all puppy parents, and they with me, I need them to be comfortable contacting me, for any reason and vice versa.
Question. Do you offer ongoing support?
Absolutely, and for the life of the dog!
Question. Do you offer pet insurance?
Breeder has not answered this question
Question. Do you assist the buyer with re-homing an animal that was purchased from you if they are unable to keep it?
Should be No because one of my conditions of sale is that "If their circumstances change FOR WHAT EVER REASON EITHER NOW OR IN 10 YEARS TIME the dog comes back to me PERIOD!
