Puppies are cute! However, they do grow up to be dogs. GSPs live up to 15 years. Are you ready for that life time commitment? They are very energetic and intelligent. They require lots of exercise. Obedience classes and proper socialization are a must. I have put a lot of time (and money) into my dogs and I will not place a puppy with just anyone. This puppy questionnaire will not only help me determine if a GSP is right for you, but will help in deciding which puppy may be right for you. If I cannot accommodate you at this time, you will either be placed on a waiting list or be referred to another reputable breeder.
