Our years or experience has taught us that not all families can handle certain breeds. We have carefully chosen breeds that historically have been great choices for today's busy families. Even though breeds like Chows with their "cat-like stubbornness" and Akita's known as "Silent Hunters" can be a good pet if trained extensively, we believe most families cannot or will not be disciplined to provide the needed leadership to be successful. We also do not sell breeds such as Jack Russell's or Border Collies, breeds that were bred for "ratting" or "Herding" that require excessive exercise. All these breeds were bred for a purpose; to guard, hunt or heard, characteristics that are not needed in a typical home and if not used will end up forming a frustrated dog and therefore an unwanted dog as a family pet. This is why dogs are rehomed and generally end up in a shelter or rescue. We also do not sell many breeds that are known for disproportionate health issues such as Shar Pei's and their skin problems or Dalmatians that are prone to deafness. Because we believe crate training is the best way to handle a dog, we also do not sell breeds that do not crate well such as Weimaraners. These are just a few examples, we could sell many more dogs but through many years of experience with over 30,000 families we have decided to forgo these sales and focus on breeds that can be successful in our clients' homes forever! We have carefully selected breeds and breed characteristics that can flourish as a great family member in a typical home with a typical busy lifestyle. This is the homework that anyone looking for a new puppy should do and we have done for you. This screening is a huge benefit for you. You can rest assured that there is a better chance of a lifelong pet because of our screening! I don't know that the other three sources can say the same!
