As a reputable breeder, my number one priority is improving the health and quality of my breed as strictly breeding for breed standard. I am knowledgeable about genetic and health problems associated with my breed. I will do appropriate health clearances on all breeding dogs prior to their use for breeding. Copies of these health clearances will be available to buyers of any of my dogs and/or puppies.
As a responsible breeder, I care about each dog that I choose to bring into this world. I treat all dogs from my bloodlines as part of my extended family, even after it is placed in a new home. I take every step possible to ensure sure that the dogs created from my breeding will never land in a shelter or in rescue.
Because I am a caring breeder, I am very selective in the sale of my puppies. I am always concerned with the type of homes in which they are placed. I will make buyers aware of their responsibilities as dog owners. I do not and will not sell or place my dogs and /or puppies to commercial dog wholesalers, dealers, brokers, retailers, pet shops or any other person or organization, for resale or "give-away" to the public. I do not and will not supply dogs or puppies for charity raffles or auctions. I do not and will not supply puppies or dogs to be trained or used for dog fighting.
As a reputable breeder, I make sure that the dogs I produce are capable of a full and happy life, sound in mind, body and temperament. I recognize that good physical health is not enough; the dogs should be bred to be great companions too.
Because I am a responsible breeder, I will not breed any male or female until they are both physically and mentally mature and I will not continue to breed any male or female beyond an appropriate age for the breed.
As a caring breeder, I will not knowingly misrepresent the characteristics of the breed, nor falsely advertise, or mislead any person regarding the performance of my dogs or puppies for sale.
Because I am a responsible breeder, I never sell my dogs without a written contract. I ensure that thecontract is clear to both of us. The contract is always fair to both parties.
As a responsible breeder, I maintain the highest possible standards of health, cleanliness and care of my dogs. This includes, but is not limited to proper veterinary care, regular contact with people and exposure to the outside world for proper socialization of all my dogs.
As a reputable breeder, I conscientiously plan each litter with the intent of improving my breed. I select a stud dog and bitch to be mated based on their pedigrees, conformation and temperament.
Because of my dedication to my breed, I will always be happy to help my puppy or dog buyers with any problems and answer any questions they may have about the dog and breed.
