The only thing that I don't understand is the questions about breeding. Most people I've seen require more than just health testing before allowing a breeding to take place. Otherwise the questionnaire looks good.

The questionnaire looks fine.

I'd rather analyze & critique your breeding program/plans :P

Is it not crazy to ask them to describe all food/ treats the puppy will get? Maybe I'm just strange but my dog gets about 100 different kinds of treats a year ..and her kibble got switched 3 times due to tummy issues.

I don't think you've asked why they want a dog and what there intentions are for it.

I have nothing to say about the questionnaire, but. . . American Bullies? Why? Every single one I've seen has been a conformation nightmare. Maybe they've come a long way from the "coffee table" look that was in style, but after a quick look at the website, it seems like that's not the case.

If you will be breeding your American Bully, do you plan to do relevant health testing?
Oh, I'm curious about this part. What do you consider to be "relevant health testing," being as there is no health testing done on any of the dogs you've ever bred or bred to, and particularly when you are linebreeding on dogs that had and have produced severe health and/or temperament issues?

Will you be using your American Bully to cross to other breeds? (IE, Shorty Bull, French Bulldog, Olde, Brahma, "exotics")
You said at the beginning of your questionnaire that there are NO right or wrong answers to any of the questions. Does that hold true for this one as well?

I know, I know, "Shut the f*** up!"

For why they want a dog, I think I covered that in "What makes this the breed for you" part but if yall think it needs its own separate question I can see that

I would rather ask "are you going to breed" and get an honest answer so that if they have unsavory breeding PLANS i can throw them out the window. Im really trying to word this as openly as possible so that scumbags will think im hunky dory with them breeding "exotics" so that they will TELL me theyre gonna breed exotics. Im not okay with it, obviously, but i want them to be honest with me. yeah, I guess im baiting. im just trying to cover every eventuality of people who are going to be sending me this questionnaire, everything from "mugglestons bulliezzz r us" from facebook, to a first time dog owner single dad who lives down the street and has no idea what dog politics are.

the food question is to make sure they dont intend to feed dog chow or something. vague "i dunno, anything grain free" is an acceptable answer. "dollar store biscuits" is not

as for the breeding plans, id be delighted to show them off, as Im very excited about it, i just didnt think anybody would care cuz ewwwamericanbulliesarenasty nifty banner here and pedigree here

Ok. I'm still curious as to my first question.
