Puppies for Sale
We are always happy to talk about our wonderful dogs and puppies and we welcome visitors by appointment.
We want to make certain that every puppy goes to a permanent, loving home where it will be well-suited and well-cared for. Please complete this application to help us learn about you and your ideal dog. All information will be kept confidential.
Why have you determined that a Beauceron is ideal for you?
What gender and color do you prefer?
What is your work schedule and where would your dog be while you are working?
What is your ideal time frame to bring home a puppy?
Do you hope to breed your dog? What other animals live with you that are in-tact?
Please rate your ambition to show in conformation (on a scale of 1 to 10). Are you willing to show your dog until it earns an AKC Championship in conformation? Are you wiling to travel for majors or hire a professional handler?
Do you plan to train/compete in Protection Sports, Search & Rescue, Herding, Agility, or competition Obedience?.
Do you have any experience training large, high-drive dogs? If yes, please explain.
Are you willing to hire a trainer to help you reach you goals? Do you understand the costs and time committment associated with the sports/activities that you want to do? What trainers and facilities do you plan to use?

Are you willing and able to take your puppy out of the house (and outside of your normal routine) to meet new people of all ages and have new positive social experiences several times a week for the first 6 months?
Are you willing and excited to provide mental stimulaton for your dog every day?
Are you willing to re-post your puppy's ears every 3 days until JDV Beaucerons agrees it is no longer needed, and will you have someone to assist you?
Have you ever given a pet away, given it to a shelter or rescue group, returned it to a breeder or sold it?
