Online Katwala Questionnaire

Please fill these questions out to the best of your ability. This questionnaire is a simple way for me to get some of the pesky "getting to know you" questions out of the way before we chat further about Australian Cattle Dogs and the purchase/adoption of one of my puppies or other dogs. There are no "right" or "wrong" answers to these questions and I promise that I don't take points off for spelling errors :)!

Please note that references will not be contacted for any reason until after we have personally spoken about the possibility of your purchasing one of my puppies. Rest assured that none of this information will EVER be passed along to any other parties (other breeders or rescue organizations) without your prior consent.

If you do not have access to a computer (note this form will not work on tablets or phones) or would prefer to print out the questionnaire to submit it via snail-mail, please visit this link for more printer-friendly versions of this file!
