                          POTENTIAL OWNER QUESTIONNAIRE
Dogs, like people, are all individuals, and one of the most challenging tasks of being a breeder
is making sure that a puppy’s personality is compatible with the needs and desires of its owner.
There are no “right” or “wrong” answers to the following questions, but your answers will
help me decide if I have the right puppy for you. The questions might also help you and your
family realize the responsibility that you will be accepting if you acquire a puppy. Please use
the back of this sheet if you need more space.
