I would probably not be willing to give it up either... because I dont think you can ever know enough about a breeder to ensure that they wont lose the paper with the information, dispose of it in an incorrect manner, have it stolen,etc... and that information in the wrong hands can be detrimental to your life.

I would never be comfortable enough with buying from a breeder that I don't plan on having a (dog) life long relationship with.

For me this info, like Red said ensures you have as much necessary info to track someone down if needed.

Think about how many applications you fill out that include that info. Info that is faxed around, looked at by a ton of car salesmen, credit departments, etc. It may make some uncomfortable but no more so than any application that requires the same info.

Well I am very careful about what applications I write this information on.

Many times I will leave it off of documents that request it... you would be surprised how many times people ask for it and dont actually need it.

I guess its a personal preference on both peoples part... thats why not every person is right for every breeder and vice-versa.... both my current poodles breeders can contact me via email and I can contact them... they have my address and phone numbers, vets/groomers #'s.. if that was not enough for them I wouldnt have gotten a dog from them... I like both ladies but I had no intentions of marrying them.

No questionnaire but I do ask nearly the same questions of everyone. I dont' like a form letter approach...I prefer to speak with each person individually.

Not when I don't have a litter planned. I keep an interest list when I do.

I ask questions and chat with the folks and listen to what they say and what they don't say.

Sometimes.

I have sold to Jrs but deal with their parents.

I'd never give a breeder my SSN. My mother got her identity stolen so I am super careful who I give that to and why. TBH I think that's rather inappropriate to ask for o__O;

I can do what we had to go through with our first papillon.

Form?

No, but we had to come to the breeder's house to have a conversation. She wanted to meet the entire family. She asked us questions about our dogs and why we wanted the breed. What we knew about them. She also showed us all her dogs and pedigrees. She really wanted to see how Josie behaved around the dogs. (She did fine and got some lessons in handling tiny dogs. (Jo was 6 at the time and most toy breeders will not place toys with smaller children)

Honestly I like that approach best. You get a better personal feel for each other and its not so cut and dried as far as a specific format.

She does not keep a formal waiting list but instead keeps tabs of people interested in pups. In this breed you can have a litter and have no pups for sale quite often so a formal list isn't really needed.

We've had a good relationship with them for over four years and I know none of us have given SSNs. I'd find that more than a bit odd.

You might need SS#'s when it comes time to claim them as dependants on your taxes...LOL!

Hmmm, I've heard of it quite often. Even the local HS requests them for criminal background checks.

I guess the way I look at it and a few breeders or rescues look at is this. It IS an application. What you get when you adopt a dog is a living, breathing creature. I have to give one to buy a car so why not a dog?

Because I won't ask for it? LOL...
someone else's app isn't important as far as placement of my dogs or pups...so I don't need it..or want it. Nor, would I give it...nor have I ever had to do so to purchase any dog.

I dont see how a SSN is of any importance to a breeder.

A car dealership wants it if you are taking out a loan on the car... they want to check your records, make sure you arent going to default... I get it.

But last time I saw my credit report, I did not see anything on it about my ability to care for a dog.

I understand when a breeder wants to call your vet, or your groomer, or maybe even your neighbor but I dont see how they feel my SSN is any of their business.
