How to Choose a Puppy
- and ensure you can raise it well

The K9joy "Puppy Seminar" is a must for everybody who contemplates becoming a responsible dog owner! Far too many many people come to training later and learn things about their puppy they wish they'd known before... Don't become one of them! Acquiring a puppy may not be a science, but it is certainly much more complex than buying a TV you can return if you don't like it!

This K9joy seminar will give you a different approach to your puppy from what you might expect. OK - you will start with a list of possible breeds - but from there, you will learn how to use the knowledge you have about yourself and your family and you life situation to eliminate the incompatible options from your list. Once you are down to just a few candidates, you can start your detailed research, first of the breed, then the breeder, then the parents, and finally - when all this is in order - you do a final check on the puppy!

It is paramount that you do all your due diligence, your research, and your business before you even see the puppy - because, once you have that puppy in your arms, you are committed! It is no joke when sales people talk about "the puppy close" - referring to the situation where a breeder just let's a potential puppy buyer "take the puppy home to see if they like" it. That puppy will never get returned - the sale is effectively closed....

This is what you will get from this K9joy seminar:

  • How to produce your initial list of possible breeds you might want to consider.

  • How to evaluate your time and how much of it you can make available for your puppy/dog

  • How your lifestyle and personal preferences should impact your choice of puppy.

  • Assessing you own personality and it fits with the dog you want - and how to get the priorities straight, so you don't neglect a potential problem you could have solved up front...

  • How to assess your family and social life - and how your candidate puppy can fit into this kind of life.

  • How to do your research for the breeds on your candidate list - where to get more information - and how to evaluate the information you get (remember: everyone who writes any description of a certain breed is a person who loves that breed - and you cannot expect any objectivity!)

  • How to organize you final choice of possible breeds by reducing your candidate list to just a few possibilities.

  • How you identify the possible genetic problems in the breeds you selected.

  • How you pick your breeder candidates

  • How you connect with the breeders and check their breeding stock of adult dogs, possibly the parents to your unborn puppy.

  • How you make a purchase from a responsible breeder - what guarantees to get - and what guarantees to give!

  • How to test your puppy before making your committed selection.

  • How to make your pick from the litter - if any...

  • How to follow up with a final check at the vet's.

  • What to do when bringing the puppy home.



No, you will not consider getting a "rescue dog" or a mixed-breed or an adult dog, unless the circumstances are very, very special, and you know very well how to test such a dog - and what risks you face for not revealing what you need to know. You cannot predict what kind of dog you get from mixing breeds - it is tough enough already with a pure-breed - don't make your guesswork even worse! And, most adult dogs have a very strong reason for not having an owner anymore - and that reason is most often related to an incompetent upbringing that will never give you a dog with a full potential for becoming what you want! If this does not make sense to you, it is because you do not know what you should know! You can get the knowledge you need about this from the video "The Dog's Social Behavior". There are many irreversible processes going on in a puppy brain that will permanently destroy its ability to develop its full potential as a friendly companion if not supported adequately through the first year of its life.

This does not mean that there is anything wrong in your helping the shelters place homeless or abandonned dogs - but you need to do that kind of thing for the purpose of being part of a humane action that may or may not be compatible with "getting the right dog for you"!

Warning!

This seminar will teach you some unpleasant truths and will give you some work assignments that most people will not like when they already got emotionally involved with a puppy they decided to buy. The right time to join this seminar is before you have made any decisions and still have an open mind to learn, without being blocked by emotional prejudices.

Seriously: the number of times we hear from people who participate in this seminar that "we should have known this before we bought that dog..." cannot be counted - the number is too big!

Please take this seriously. Buying a dog is a commitment for 15-20 years. There is too much at stake to allow for hasty decisions... And we can guarantee you this: 99% (or more) of all people who buy a dog have no clue about the important stuff you will and should learn in this seminar!

    It comes in PDF format, ready for printing. (You need a program that can read this PDF formatted file. You can get a free copy of Adobe Acrobat Reader here.

  • Fee Schedule - what it costs to get such a seminar coming to you...

For clubs and other groups, we can put a program together that exactly fits your needs, including practical workshops that also involve demonstrations with dogs. It does not have to fit the standards... Please check the Special Assignments page, so we can discuss what can work for you!




You should know that, although this seminar most certainly can "stand alone", the value you will get from it will be greatly enhanced if you also participate in either of these seminars/workshops: or if you watch the video "The Dog's Social Behavior" in advance.

Can't make it on those dates?
Or at those locations?
Or looking for something different?

We plan our courses and seminars on the basis of the input we get from people who want to attend them or arrange them - so please let us know what you are looking for! We will be happy to take a look at your ideas and suggestions, and if we can make them happen, we will do it - and we will notify you.



Ordering by phone:

If you do not have a credit card or a PayPal account you can use on-line, we can find other ways of taking your order manually, even cash. You are welcome to give us a call at +1-403-770-1867 so we can help you with the necessary instructions. (If you call from Europe, you may use +45 36 98 02 98 evenings only.)

Be aware that we do not take credit card information over the phone - it is a ridiculous risk for you and a very unnecessary liability for us, as we will have to use that information on-line ourselves, in order to expedite your order - and then you might as well do it yourself via the links on this page! And then we have to take care of destroying the information we got from you.... Paying by credit card via PayPal online is far more secure than any other ways you possibly could use your credit card - physically handing it to a merchant you see in person is far more risky...

Please note that there is a $10 charge for all expediting any off-line orders manually.



Ordering by mail:

If you do not have a credit card or a checking account you can use on-line, you can always get an International Money Order*) from a nearby post office or bank, where you can pay cash.

Make sure the Money Order is made payable to K9joy and add $25.00 to cover our processing and banking costs. (If anything else than exactly the four letters AAMI is put into the field "Payable to...", we cannot cash your Money Order, and it will be destroyed when we receive it!)

Then send it in an envelope you can trace to this address

K9joy
3980C Riverview Road
Creston, BC, V0B 1G2 Canada
.
(If you live in the USA, you may use this address instead:
K9joy, Box 641, Porthill, ID 83853)

Be aware that, regardless the main address being in Canada, the amount is in US funds! (And you will have to pay your local post office in your own currency, so please do not get confused...)

Please enclose with your payment the information we need about you, including:

  • What exactly you order - we need the title and the format (download, CD, print)...
  • Your name and shipping address
  • Your e-mail address
  • Your phone number

----------------------------------------
*) We do not accept personal cheques, whether drawn on a personal account or a business account - it takes over 6 weeks for the funds to clear and costs the same, so it is a ridiculous way of processing payments...
