  • What health problems do you screen for? What congenital defects are present in this breed, and what steps are you taking to decrease those defects?

  • What kind of health guarantee do you offer with your dogs?

  • Can I visit your facility and meet the dam?

  • What are the parents’ good and bad points?

  • Where were the puppies raised? How have you socialized them?
