Puppies

Tibetan Mastiff Puppy Buyer Questionnaire

 

Thank you in advance for taking the time to provide me with this information!
The placement of each puppy is too important not to ask these questions.

 

Please note!! A securely fenced yard with a physical fence is a requirement for me to consider placing a puppy in your home. A kennel run located in your otherwise unfenced yard is NOT sufficient.

I feel that electronic, invisible / underground fencing is also not suitable for this breed. Please read this article about the Tibetan Mastiff and invisible fencing before you consider bringing this breed into your home with the intention of using this type of containment.
