Selecting a breeder

Guide to selecting a breeder

So you’ve decided to get a puppy, but how do you make sure you’re doing everything you can to get a healthy dog with a nature to suit your lifestyle?

Aside from knowing you’ve given a dog a second chance a life and the loving home that they’ve always deserved but sadly never had; here are some of the many reasons why adoption might be the best choice for you:

As our dogs are living in foster homes whilst they wait for their perfect forever home you’ll be able to find out a lot more about the dog than you would otherwise. You’ll know what you’re signing up for and have a good understanding of the dog’s individual needs.

Adopting a middle aged or older dog can be an excellent introduction to the breed for a first time Arctic owner. It’s true that Arctic’s can be challenging dogs to own at times, and we are often able to recommend a more laid back dog for those new to the breed.

And many of you don’t  want to go through ‘the puppy stage’ again anyway? Yeah they’re cute; but young pups require so much time and energy. The reality is, most of us today have a busy life and are time poor and leaving an eight week old pup home alone for 8, 10 or 12 hours a day is never going to end well for you, the pup, your yard, or your furniture.

We want the best for you and the dog, which is why all our dogs are adopted out on a two-week trial period. Think of it like a safety net, if you realise you’ve bitten off more than you can chew, or the dog isn’t fitting into your lifestyle as well as you’d imagined; you won’t find yourself facing the horrible decision of surrendering a dog to the pound, and we’ll even refund the adoption fee.

With so many benefits it’s easy to see why adoption is fast becoming our nations premier path to finding that perfect newest member of the family.
