LA Danes Puppy Questionnaire

The following questions are being asked of you so that the right puppy and the right placement of each puppy is made by bringing the various requirements of both the puppy and his or new owner(s) into perspective, BEFORE a choice is made.

If you can think of anything on a more personal note that you'd like to add to this, I'd love to hear it. The idea behind these questions is that knowing the pups temperaments from day one, we may see different things in them than you would as a stranger attempting to pick one, and may be able to guide you towards a puppy which realistically suits your experience, family needs and ownership goals.
