Janterra Puppy Questionnaire
Thank you for your interest in Janterra Dobermans. We interview prospective buyers carefully, so we thank you for answering these questions.

NOTE: We typically do not have any puppies available for immediate placement. So if waiting, or our future litter does not interest you, we invite you to seek another responsible Doberman breeder by checking out the Alberta Doberman Pinscher Club: http://adpc.ca/breeders-list/ (copy and paste into address bar) DO NOT COMPLETE THIS QUESTIONNAIRE UNLESS YOU ARE SERIOUS ABOUT BEING PLACED ON A WAIT LIST

Please, do not be offended if we ask a lot of questions about you, your family, home and lifestyle. We are very protective of where we place our puppies and your honest answers will help me decide which puppy is best for you. For instance, if you are not at all active, but are a home body who enjoys gardening in the yard, please say so as this will make a difference in which pup is a good fit for you. You do not want a high energy, high drive dog if you do not for see training or providing a lot of physical exercise because it will drive you crazy and frustrate the dog. That said, we have set up the following questionnaire as a way of getting acquainted with those who would like to be considered as prospective owners of one of our puppies.

Please understand this is NOT a contract to purchase a puppy and is in no way a binding agreement. Please tell us about yourself...

Your answer
Are you willing to sign a ownership contract before buying this puppy? *
This is your sales contract for the puppy.
Puppies are sold on co-owerships and limited registrations, are you OK with this? *
This will be discussed with all puppy owners in more detail. Co-ownerships are permanent and are in place for the puppies protection, for example - in the event anything happens to the owners (the people puppy lives with). It ensures we can protect the puppy from going into a shelter or other potentially harmful situation. Our ownership contract always states the primary caregiver is the purchaser.
Do you understand what a limited registration is? *
Limited registrations mean that you agree that the Doberman will not be bred, and if the Doberman is accidentally bred, the puppies will NOT be eligible for registration. Are you OK with this?
Are you willing to stay in contact with us throughout the dogs entire life and update us with any address, phone or email changes? *
Do you agree to the fact that the puppy MUST be returned to us if it cannot be kept by you, for ANY reason? *
We will also take our dogs back for any reason during their lifetime - in fact our contract stipulates that if things don't work out, the puppy/dog must be returned to us when we will attempt to re-home him/her on behalf of the previous owner. It stands to reason that we have more reliable contacts than the average person, and this way we can assure ourselves that the dog is properly placed in his/her forever home.
Would you be willing to allow me, or a friend of mine to visit your home? *
This is only to ensure that there is indeed a fenced yard and verify there are proper accommodations for the puppy in the home.
