A Dog is a Lifetime Commitment – Avoid Impulse Buying!
Breed selection is very important. By some research, you will spare yourself (and your dog) some heartache. There is a dog for every lifestyle or family, but it can be very easy to make a mistake and purchase a breed that does not fit in at all. Unfortunately when this occurs, the dog, more often than not, winds up in the local pound and if it’s lucky it will find a good home. However, odds are that it will become one of the millions of animals that are put to sleep every year through no fault of its own. our team will work with you through a selection criteria checklist which will provide information on areas of consideration such as size, temperament, grooming and exercise requirements, instinctive drive and common health problems associated with different breeds.
