Dog SelectionDog Selection

Our most proactive wellness service is education about dog selection. Just as important as deciding to have a dog join your family, is the type of dog you select.  Let us get you off on the right track. We will consider your needs and recommend a breed that would be appropriate for your lifestyle and family needs.  We can also assist in finding a reputable breeder and perform temperament testing.  If more potential dog owners would take this essential first step, less dogs would end up in shelters and worse, end up euthanized.

There are more than 160 breeds and countless shelter and rescue dogs to consider.  Please take the time to find the dog that is best suited to you and your family!
