Nagging Questions:
The Stuff You HAVE to Know
Can This Breeder Help You

In Raising a Happy, Confident Pup?

What advice can you offer someone who is about to raise and train a dog from this breed?

A breeder is an expert in their breed. If they aren't, they need to not be breeding! With that said, a good breeder will take this opportunity to share some of the difficulties in raising a dog of this breed. Their penchant for counter surfing or a love for the furniture. The challenge of living with one while they are teething or going through a destructive phase (Labs are known for this for example). How important socializing is for those first couple years. How to go about housetraining. How to protect their hips especially while they are young, growing and exuberant.

This is a great place to REALLY see what you are paying for. Yes, you intend to get a pup but the breeder is really the resource you are paying for. A good breeder will ALWAYS find time to help you with questions or problems you are having with their dog. Again, their priority is the happiness of that dog and they will know that if you are happy, the dog is happy.

Of course any additional questions you might have on this topic will be enthusiastically fielded at DigitalDog's Forum .
