Adoption Counseling

Acquiring a dog may be the only time a person gets to choose a relative.

-Mordecai Siegal

Ready to add a new furmily member?  Let me help you make the right choice for your family.  Whether you're looking to a breeder or a shelter, I'll help you choose the right breed, age, and activity level for your lifestyle.

What to Expect




Activity Level

Grooming Needs

Health Concerns

When you're ready to add a new member to your family, be thinking about the things listed on the left.  Those are all things we'll discuss during your initial counseling appointment.  My job isn't to tell you what you need; I'm here to guide you to a good starting point.

Once we've settled on what type of canine would work best for your family and lifestyle, we can begin looking for that perfect new furmily member.  You can do this on your own or I can help you.  Whether you're looking to buy or adopt (I'm always an advocate for adopting), I can then go with you to help make sure all the right questions are asked.  I can also help with any introductions you may need to make with current members of the family, be they furred, scaled, or feathered.


Initial consult is always free!

Please contact for pricing.  Discounts and trades offered on a case-by-case basis.
