                                               ABOUT THE PUPPY QUESTIONAIRE

We want to thank you for considering Cedar Creek Retrievers llc.
We know that you have researched your options, and you have learned that we work very hard to breed
the finest quality pups possible, genetically sound, athletic, intelligent,  pleasant in appearance, with
excellent learning attitudes. Our pups are handled and played with for the first 42 days with us. By the
time you receive your Cedar-Creek puppy, he/she has been exposed to all types of surfaces, noises and
sights. Your pup has been exposed to doves and swimming in the pond (weather permitting). Your pup
has been on walks in the field and taken for drives in the automobile to the vet and around the
property. Your pup has been on solid food for at least 2 weeks and has had all age appropriate shots
and wormings.
Cedar-Creek pups are always considered members of our family and by filling out this questionnaire,
you are accepting the responsibility of lifelong care for your dog and if for any reason you can no longer
care for your pup, your pup will be welcome back to Cedar-Creek, no questions asked.

We feel our pups are special and want their new homes to be special also. Our pups will need love and
attention and training. Pups do not learn good behavior on their own, they will need proper direction.
They will need to be taught to be valued members of the family. You must be willing to devote a
substantial number of hours to caring for and training your new pup or arrange to have someone do the
training for you.

The questionnaire will give you an idea of what we consider important.  Our goal is to produce a well
rounded pup that would fit into every family and enjoy every activity. Our pups are calm, but excitable,
accepting, fun, healthy, happy and outgoing.  We want all of our pups to enjoy all activities, whether it be
swimming at the beach, out on the boat, in the hunting family, the obedience, agility or conformation
ring, a jogging partner or a friend that will sit quietly with your family. Each pup will be evaluated for your
needs as he/she begins to develop their personality.  We let each family pick their own pup, we only
assist you with our knowledge of your pups personality and aptitude.  This questionnaire is designed to
try to bring the awareness of the responsibilities of owning a dog.
We deal with these issues on a daily basis, and would choose no other life. Our labs have made our
lives richer and fuller. We want you to have the same experience.  
If you do not wish to fill out the questionnaire, please feel free to call or come to our home.
