What you should
concider before buying a puppy:
are surely unresistable with their charme of a teddy-bear. But those
little fluffy teddy-bears are turning into big adult dogs, who claim
from you lifelong love, attention and stimulation and give it back,
trail mud in your living-room, who want to be your buddy for about 13
years and would like mostly to go whereever you go. So you are really
going to take a decision of consequence!
Here is a set of
questions for you, which you should answer honestly for yourself:
Am I willing to care
a dog-life long about my bergamsco and to feed him according to his physical
but also emotional needs?
Am I willing and able to continue
the started education with puppy-schools playgroups and training damit
sich mein Hund angenehmen Hausgenossen entwickelt?
Do I really have time and motivation
to walk or train my dog every day rain or shine about two hours?
Is iit o.k. for me, that my bergamasco
will trot behind me in the house, where ever I go and will usually watch
my movements and is longing to stay with me all the time if possible?
Can I accept, that my dog is going
to stay wet in bad weather for quite a time, because he is drying slowly?
Is it possible for me to take my
dog with me when I go on holiday - or can I place him by good friends,
where he feels comfortable too? ( A bergamasco is suffering gravely,
when locked up in a kennel or is separated from his family!)
Am I prepared and in a position
to pay the constantly incurred costs for feeding, vet, insurance, lisense
Did I discuss all those aspects
with my family and do all members agree
Do I have - as the case may be
- a declaration of consent from my hirer or from cohabitants I depend
Are our circumstances stable enough
that I can assume keeping my dog appropriate to his needs for his whole
life? Do I know, where I can place him in case of an emergency?
What we expect from you:
As we want to breed
healthful and robust dogs, we need an exact overview of our breeding
results. Therefore we require some special feedback from you:
We expect from
you to let your dog x-ray with 15-18 months, to present him at a breed
survey of our Club KfuH in Germany or to present him at at least one
dogshow and to pay the costs.
What you can expect
Our puppies are
carefully prepared for all living conditions they should know to live
a happy dog-life.
Our puppies are
chipped, vaccinated and dewormed and have papers and pedigrees, that
are recognized by the German KfuH and VDH and by the FCI.
Of course we are
to your proposal whenever you have a question or a problem and we like
to stay in contact with you ...
anything - your decision will have far-reaching consequences for many
