New puppy questionnaire

As a breeder, my goal is to place each of my puppies in his or her “forever” home; into the home that best matches his/her personality.  This long questionnaire is the beginning of my attempts to do that.

Each puppy is an individual, just as all prospective homes are different from each other.  During the first 7-8 weeks of the puppies’ lives, I carefully observe and evaluate each pup’s personality traits.  Then, I compare my observations to the information on each questionnaire (and that gathered in my phone calls and many emails with you!) to try to determine the most appropriate home for each puppy. Matching the needs of the pup to each prospective owner’s needs, preferences, and lifestyle allows me to make the best possible match for you.

Therefore, the answers you provide in this questionnaire are vital in assisting me to match the right puppy to your home.  There are no right or wrong answers! The questionnaire is long and some of the questions may seem personal; however, honesty and openness is very important— it’s the only way I can match the right puppy to you. Remember, I’m trusting you for the lifetime of one of my babies.   🙂

Make sure all fields with an asterisk (*) are filled in, then click Submit. You will get a green-boxed thank you notice that says the form was successfully sent. If you don’t, please review to be sure all fields are completed and Submit again. (I strongly suggest copying the entire filled-out form BEFORE submitting so if it’s lost, you can simply paste it into an email to me.) If you do not hear back from me within 48 hours, please get in touch. There have been times the form never got delivered to me!  You can email me at pups at magentabaypoodles dot com.
Thank you so much for your time!!

Again, be honest. There are often good reasons.
If there is no significant other, just write "n/a"
Above: If there are any days that all adults will not be home all day (for work or otherwise), how will you care for the puppy on those days?
