New Breeder Profile, Type of Breed: GERMAN SHORTHAIRED POINTER BREEDER
Taylor told The Canine Review that she places puppies with families, rather than allowing buyers to choose their puppies. She does this, she explained, to create better matches based on what owners intend to do with the dogs. The people who buy her dogs are predominately hunters. Hunters are more likely to meet Taylor’s high-level activity requirements for prospective owners.
“It is a lifestyle. You have to be ready to exercise the dog,” she said.
Apartment dwellers would need to work overtime to convince her to let them have a dog.
A promise to exercise the dog sufficiently is not Ms. Koutstaal’s only requirement. Ms. Koutstaal says she has rejected applicants who indicated a sole interest in her dogs for hunting, which, to her, suggested that the dogs would not live in homes with families, but, instead, in outdoor kennels, separated from household life.
