Designer Puppy Breeders - What the GOOD Designer Puppy Breeders Do After You Buy a Pup

The Boyz After a Recent Grooming Session

We got Simon from a GOOD designer puppy breeder in PA. Just about the time Simon was 8 months old (a few weeks ago), we got a call from the breeder.

Why? She was doing the "good" breeder thing (see Designer Puppy Breeders - the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly) - checking to see if he has any physical or behavioral issues.

There were a bunch of questions about his health and disposition and a few comments about the importance of gene testing. Turns out Simon's daddy is responsible for that laid-back attitude.

How many "pure-bred" dog breeders make these types of calls?
