Irish Red and White Setters
Quality Setters since 1978
If you are considering a Waidman puppy, we are flattered. We know that you have done your research, and have learned that we work very hard to breed and raise pups that are sound, athletic, intelligent, and great family companions.
Waidman IRWS pups are always a member of our family. By filling out this questionnaire, you are accepting the responsibility of lifelong care for your dog. We feel our puppies are special, and want their new homes to be special. Our pups will need love and attention and training. Pups do not "settle down" as they get older, they must be taught correct behaviors and learn to be good citizens and members of the family. You must be willing to devote a substantial number of hours to caring for and training your new pup, or arrange to have the dog trained.
The following questionnaire will give you an idea of some things we consider important. There are no right or wrong answers. Many of the questions are intended to provoke you into thinking about how you will handle certain issues related to your pup. Once we have received and reviewed your questionnaire, we will be in touch with you to discuss a puppy.
