    I think a lot of Breeders have their properties on the web now, address and all............We were invited to our Breeders place the first time I wanted a newfie puppy after long phone conversations, pre-email.
    The first newfie pup i went looking at, I felt like i was sitting an exam. I had to have a reference form my vet...had to have a property check by the Breeders friend and still had to answer lots of questions when we arrived, hoping to be able to have a puppy (1980).....it wasn't until we had talked for over an hour that she let in an adult newf, She was beautiful, but aloof.........After a short period the dog came over to me and put her big head on my lap. She smiled at us and said we could have a look at the puppies.........When the puppies came into the room, my little Josh sat in front of me and we got to take him home two weeks later.........It has been newfies ever since from the same breeder. Be it puppies or rescue's

    I appreciated the fact that she wanted the best possible home for her puppies. She is responsible for those puppies forever. And she will always take a dog back or help other newfies in need (rescue). That in my eyes is a good reliable Breeder. She gets all the dogs she breeds health checked (hips/elbows/cardiac/cystinuria.

    I am still in contact with my Breeder if something happens with my dogs, just like when Katy was injured. She is my mentor

    Nothing wrong Dee.. Your town has not been "Nearmapped" yet..
    Search for 'Brisbane' and then zoom out.. You will see the difference between areas that have been "nearmapped" and areas that haven't..

    LL, Nearmap require govt and business to buy a license to use nearmap. They also get access to more mapping.
    It is free for a private user.
    Go down to the bottom of the page and click the checkbox next to "I accept the Blah Blah" and then click the "Take me to the Map" box.

    If google maps or nearmaps aren't giving you what you want then you just have to up the questions and conversations. Internet is just one of the tools you can use.

    I think most of all you get a feel for people.

    I'm normally overwhelmed by photos and questions from genuine buyers that I don't have to push to much to get the answers I'm after.

    If you want to breed dogs you've got to like people, the two are always mixed in together.

    I think my problem is that I am a Dog trainer and i see so many people with dogs. They mean well.........BUT........

    Hence I would be very tentative, I have very different feeling as to how dogs should be managed. I love dogs and I would like my puppies (If I had any) to go to homes that give them a stimulating home with lots of things to do and great Leadership. Just from being on my side of the fence, not always easy to find.........many people love their dogs, but their dogs still lead a boring life. I think I would jut be too fussy to find puppy owners. I go to newfie days and I see all these newfies that are just dogs that do nothing but lie around. And I feel sad. I know they are loved, but they have not been taken to their breeds potential of work and they are bored and look sad. I show some of these people if they are interested what you can do with them and they are amazed, but say it takes too much effort. So many dogs come to training with problems and people think you can fix it in one hour, can't even fix a faulty car in one hour ........Even though people love their dogs, many do not realise how much time they take........ Anyway, just my feelings

    Just updating this post..

    Has anyone ever had puppies for sale and said no to a buyer as you thought they were not
    suitable ?

    I am getting all my information packs and stuff altogether
    and I want to write up a check list of things to ask potential buyers that
    may call me..
    Can anyone help me out with a list ??

    When I purchased my boy they didn't ask me much as I know about the
    breed and had Dogues already..
    Well they did ask me a couple of questions that I was able to answer without delay
    so I guess they felt I was a genuine buyer.

    Any suggestions would be great guys....

    I am sure that you have the usual answer and questions, the why you want this type a dog and can you afford the dog (vet and food)..Will you be into training and how much time will you have for the dog.

    What will you do if you go on holiday and many many more on that line

    I actually had to get a reference from my vet for my pup...

    I think you need to go a lot with your gut feeling too

    Also had a question regarding fencing, was the dog allowed inside and such.

    I also knew a lot about newfies. We also had the meet and greet a couple of times and see how the dogs reacted to us...the dog's reaction was the final decision ..

    Now for you will you be socialisin the puppies heaps with lots of different people of sex, size, age and such.......my Breeder handles the puppies lots from day one now and allows lots of noise and people around them. Also different animals and such. it make a great difference for the dogs future life.

    I as the Purchaser would be asking you how much you socialise your puppies.........I have a totally different outlook on that now. I like mine handled lots and have them in noisy family environment......Won't ever get a puppy that was kept quietly with just its littermates in a separate room like the days of old. The best puppies are kept in the middle of all the family traffic. People used to think my Dad was mad, becuase ours were in the middle of our living area. with lots of traffic, other dogs, kids, cats, TV and strangers....his dogs were tops and well liked in the RAAF and Police......No fear and friendly

    I do quite a bit of work with the puppies from our Breeder after week four, lots of fun play and touching all over, with environmental input too

    CAn't wait to see your puppies
