Ashsinhalt Puppy Questionnaire
Please answer this questionnaire to the best of your ability, the more details you can give, the better, to understand what type of home you can offer one of my puppies and so I can pick out a suitable puppy to match what you are looking for in a whippet.
Copy and paste the below questions to the contact form below and write out your answers, or fill out the Word Doc below and email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Will you be the primary care giver of the puppy?
Are there any children in the household? What is their experience with dogs/puppies and how do they behave around animals?
How would you describe your household activity level? Quiet, moderate, busy?
What is your activity level? Eg regular hikes, runs, walks, biking etc.
Do you own any other pets? If so, please state what species and if you plan to have them interacting with the dog.
Have you owned whippets previously (or currently)?
What is your experience training dogs? Are you willing to spend time to properly train the puppy?
Is anyone in the household allergic to dogs?
How did you hear about us and why did you choose us over other breeders?
Will you be crate training or kennelling your puppy when you are away from home?
What diet will your puppy be on? Are you open to a 100% raw diet?
Do you plan on desexing the puppy? If so, at what age and why? Please take note I do not sell puppies to homes that plan on desexing under 2 years of age.
How tall is your fencing, and what is the shortest point in your fencing? Is your yard fully fenced? (If you have picket fences or fences that collars can get caught on, do not leave collars on unattended)
Where will the puppy be living? Eg inside, outside, free access to both, kennelled?
If circumstances arise and you can no longer keep your puppy, are you aware that he/she MUST come back to me? I will organise a new home so I know where they are going and know they will be well taken care of.
And most importantly, will you keep in touch with me for the remainder of your puppies life? give me regular updates on how he/she is going and attend play dates (if possible)?
What are you looking for in your puppy? eg show prospect, hunting prospect, sporting prospect (what sports), energy level, trainability, calm, confident, more reserved? etc.
Puppies are chosen by myself based on what each person on the waiting list is looking for, and the best home for each puppy. We usually get a good mix of personalities and find the perfect match for what each owner is looking for in their future puppy.
Are you interested in a Female or Male, or no preference?
Do you have any colour preference? I will try to match up colour preferences where possible.
What are you looking for in a puppy? (Eg. high or low energy, trainability, high or low prey drive, any particular sports, showing, etc)
Please let me know if you have any questions for me and I am more than happy to answer.
