Over 35 years of training, showing and occasionally breeding collies here at Avalon Collies & Training has taught me the importance of having an application/questionnaire. Finding the very best forever homes for each puppy is of critical importance to me. The application/questionnaire helps me ensure every puppy is placed in the ideal home for that individual puppy.
