Questionnaire

 

Thank you for your interest in acquiring an Akita from our kennel. Here at Shinsei Nawashi kennel we strive to match each family with the right puppy, which is why we need to know more about you and your family in order to see if an Akita is right for you and if you can offer the required conditions for one of our beloved puppies.

 

All information you provide is confidential. By filling in this questionnaire you are in no way obliged to acquire an Akita from our kennel, or are we obliged to offer you one. We simply want to know more about you and your family in order to see if we can offer you an Akita to suit your environment and goals.
Next steps:
Based on your answers, if you fulfill all required living conditions and accept our recommendations regarding the Akita that we consider to be best suited for you and your family, we will place you on a waiting list for our next litter.
Once the pregnancy is confirmed you have 6 weeks to decide whether you want a puppy from that specific litter or you wish to wait for another litter. Once you decide to accept a puppy from the current litter you are expected to pay a deposit worth 300 euros as Puppy reservation on the basis of a contract between our kennel and you.
