      registrations, and that the numbers are sent to us for our records. Will this be a problem for you?

      socialization) Will this be a problem for you?

      papers.  Do you have a problem with this?         
           a.)If so Why?

6.) We as breeders strive to breed Aussies that are physically and mentally sound, this does not however
      mean that all our Aussie are perfect, if a problem arises We want to be contacted immediately with full

 Thank you for taking the time to fill out the questionnaire. We hope you understand the reasons for the
 need to have a questionnaire. We only want our Aussies to have a happy and healthy life.
We trust as a dog lover you too can appreciate this.
