I have four dogs I purchased at Puppy Tales and they all have fabulous temperaments, are affectionate and sensitive to training. Because they are weaned by their mother and kept with their sibling pack for 9/10 or more weeks, they come to their forever home with a solid understanding of what it means to be a dog. I have the utmost respect for the proprietor of this shop (the puppies are bred by either herself or her mother who has 30 yrs experience) as she does not over breed the females and the mothers are allowed to raise the puppies instinctually. The human contact the puppies receive is obviously sufficient as all the dogs I have from Puppy Tales have never shown a fearful response to humans or other dogs. If you are looking for a quality pet that has been breed for temperament, this should be your first stop.
