Are you ready for a puppy?

  • Have you studied several breeds and understand the purpose the breed was developed for?  Some breeds were bred to hunt and have considerable exercise requirements, while other breeds were developed to be companions and do not have much lower exercise requirements.   

  • Have you interacted with an adult of the breed you are considering?

  • Are you aware of the breed's adult size, temperament, and exercise and grooming requirements?

  • Do you know the disorders that can appear in this breed and plan to research breeders and lines to avoid problems?

  • If a problem appears, despite the breeder's and your efforts, are you prepared to deal with it?

  • Is everyone in the household enthused and willing to help?


When you purchase a puppy from a CADF breeder, you are purchasing from a dedicated, conscientious breeder whose priority is to produce healthy specimens of their own breed.

All CADF member breeders have agreed to abide by our Code of Ethics. Our breeders screen their breeding stock for known hereditary problems, specific to their particular breed. This allows you to purchase your puppy with confidence, knowing that your breeder has taken all of the necessary steps to provide you with the healthiest puppy possible.
