    You just got a new puppy — Congratulations! One of the most common problems with new puppies is buying them at a hard time for a family. Once he learns how to do something he is relatively fine, and will oblige. Before calling the breeder make a list of the questions you want to ask.

    If you have allergies stay away from long coated dogs. Ask to be refereed to a local club representative who can answer all your questions. You will get out of your puppy what you put into it. This will give you a good idea of the puppy as an adult.

    If you are new to the sport, it will help a great deal to choose a puppy from a breeder who has trained AND titled a dog. Research the seller and obtain references. After you wire money to a puppy scammer, you will have no way to get it back, and they will not send you a puppy. They too are not necessarily "health problem free". Ask to be refereed to a local club representative who can answer all your questions.
