Is A Working Puppy Right For Me?

We discuss the responsibility of being a working puppy owner.


Dear Puppy Owner

Thank you for considering our selectively bred working puppies. Before proceeding with the purchase, we would like to provide you with some important information and some things to consider before acquiring a working puppy. We want you to be satisfied with your puppy and your experience with us here at K9 Dragon Factory. To get the most satisfaction there are some requirements and responsibilities that are unique to working puppies and adults.

1. Working Dog Commitment: Our puppies are selectively bred for their exceptional working abilities and are best suited for roles such as police work, search and rescue, protection, K9 bite sports or service tasks. Please be aware that these dogs require a significant commitment in terms of training, exercise, and mental stimulation to fulfill their potential.

2. Training Responsibility: As a responsible breeder, we strongly recommend that you invest in professional training for your working puppy. Proper training is crucial to harness their innate abilities and ensure they become well-behaved, productive members of your team or family. We offer complete training services to fit any and all needs. From in house board and train programs to one on one trainer courses.

3. Active Lifestyle Requirement: Working puppies are high-energy dogs that thrive in active environments. If you lead a sedentary lifestyle or have limited time for regular exercise and mental stimulation, a working puppy might not be the best fit for your needs.

4. Handler Suitability: Working dogs typically form deep bonds with their handlers. It's essential to ensure that the primary handler has the time, experience, and commitment to develop a strong working relationship with the puppy.

5. Early Socialization: Early socialization is crucial for a well-rounded working dog. Exposing your puppy to various environments, people, and animals from an early age will contribute to their confidence and adaptability. Not socializing our working puppy can have a negative impact on the dogs ability to work in any environment. We highly suggest the dog be socialized well at all ages.

6. Health and Wellness: While we prioritize the health of our breeding dogs and their offspring, it's important to understand that no dog is entirely free from health risks. Regular veterinary check-ups, proper nutrition, and exercise are vital to maintaining your puppy's overall well-being. After our many years of experience we can attest to the importance of a good diet through the dogs life being one of if not the most important factor to how well your dog will function.

We value transparency and want to ensure that you make an informed decision about adding a working puppy to your life. If you have any doubts or concerns, please don't hesitate to discuss them with us. Our goal is to find the best possible match between our puppies and their future handlers.

Thank you for considering our working puppies. We strive to match you with the perfect dog.
