Puppy Selection

Your puppy is going to share many happy years with you, so be careful in choosing wisely. Don’t choose your puppy simply on impulse because he came to you wagging his tail, jumping on you, licking your face.
“Having a well behaved dog begins with selecting the right dog”
Puppy selection requires a little bit of home work. Which breed, what size, long coat or short coat are decisions which are going to influence your selection.
Dogs are a long-term investment, so take your time and give some careful thought to your selection. We tend to get carried away with popular breeds and a happy looking pup. Understanding its health, its temperament is as important. Any hasty decision can lead to discrepancies in expectations.
