Choosing The Right Dog

Not all dogs are the same, and it's very important to pick the right dog for your family's lifestyle. Often people will pick a breed simply because they like the cute dog they've just seen on T.V. They get a puppy without researching and later realize that the cute Border Collie pup is really not working out so well with their relatively calm lifestyle, or the Yorkshire Terrier may not have been the best choice for their active hiking and camping lifestyle. We can meet with you to discuss the pros and cons of different breeds before you make your choice. We also help advise on how to find a good breeder and what you should be expecting from the breeder.
