Puppy Interest Application

Buying a puppy from us can be broken into five basic steps:

  1.     Research breeds of dogs
  2.     Introduce yourself to the breeder (below)
  3.     Join the Am-Al community on Facebook (more research!)
  4.     Place a deposit (to get on the waiting list)
  5.     Wait.


Research many breeds of dogs and figure out which ones best suit your schedule and lifestyle. 

If the American Alsatian sounds like it might be the dog breed for you (or you'd just like to know more about the breed), introduce yourself to me by completing the following application and I will get back to you.
(If you have any trouble with the form, you can email the information to me directly at schwarzkennels@aol.com.  )

How tall or heavy are you? Will you be able to handle a large or giant dog? How many pounds do you think would be the largest?    smallest?    That would work for you. 
How old will you be when the dog is 12 ?  Would you be able to lift him/her into the car/van?

Describe your property (yard)

How old are you/your mate and who will be the MAIN dog caregiver or will this be shared?

What you will use the dog for, and be truthful.. do you want a tad bit of security in your pup/dog?  Are you afraid of your life, or of attacks, or burglaries? Do you walk alone and need a dog that appears to be feared a bit?  Do you have ptsd or other issues?

Do you jog?
Do you go camping with your dog?
Do you want a dog that likes water sports?
Do you have a lot of strangers and friends over? 

Are you capable of taking care of a long coat, or should you get a shorter coat?

Are looks important to you or for a little less money would you consider flop ears and a curled tail and not exactly like the dire wolf? Would you consider a 75 lb dog instead of a 100 lb dog. 
(the less you have to spend the less of the 'look' of a dire wolf you could afford as the perfect DireWolf look could cost upwards of 7 thousand dollars).

The American Alsatian doesn’t like to be left alone when young. Describe the first 6 months of this puppy's living arrangements, please.
Will you crate train your puppy?
What sex do you prefer and why?
Will you neuter your pup? At what age? Why or Why not?

Schwarz Dogs are not bred to be Service dogs

    With that said, many of my dogs are being used as service dogs.  If you want a service dog/pup, its up to you to train him.  I don't sell service pups so I wont sign a contract for one.   This does not mean that your Schwarz dog/pup wont make a grrreat one!

    So, tell you what...  for all you folks that want a Schwarz Dog as a service dog, let me know what tasks you would like the dog to perform, so that I can get to know you and your needs. You can do that in the 'getting to know you' puppy interest form above.

 


Schwarz dogs are NOT working dogs
