Mount Forest, Ontario
At ARPA Select, we are a small-scale breeding program that produces big results. We achieve this by only keeping a select few females onsite, that live in our home as members of our family, and not in the kennel. Our females are of sound temperament, have passed and received great health testing scores, and come from some of the best foundation pedigrees the breed has to offer.
We hand pick our sires from around the world, focusing on health, temperament, structure, pedigree and showing results.
By crafting each litter through the pairing of two accomplished mates, we increase the probability of each puppy being healthy, confident and of breed standard. Each puppy produced by our program is thoroughly checked over by a professional veterinarian before leaving our home, and they are backed by a 2-year health guarantee. Puppies are whelped and raised in the home where they get to experience the day-to-day life of a home that includes children, cats, and of course, our other dogs.
Puppies are only adopted out to approved homes, that through a screening process, have demonstrated that they have a sound knowledge of the breed, and have the emotional and financial capacity to ensure a lifelong commitment to the puppy.
Once the application process is completed, puppies are then adopted out based on a ‘best fit’ basis rather than ‘first come, first served’.
