Note: We do not promote one breeder over another and advise
you to do your best research into choosing a breeder.
Which is most important to you?
- A pretty dog
- A family dog
- A social dog
- A serious protector
- A flock guardian
- A property protector
- A obedience competitor
These are just some of the things you must ask yourself when looking for a dog.
These are the the main reasons for purchasing your puppy from a knowledgable and experienced breeder. If a breeder cannot correctly evaluate each puppy's temperament in his/her litter you seriously should consider finding another breeder.
A dog's temperament "Character and Drives" is very complex and very diffecult to evaluate. Therefore be sure to purchase your puppy from a breeder that is knowledgable and experienced in doing such tests.
Purchasing a puppy for color or because he is cute could be a disaster in the making.
A breeder should know how to test for each of these traits:
- Prey Drive
- Dog Aggression
- Prey Aggression
This is just an example of couple traits that should be tested for!
