We Welcome you to Join the Rodina Straze Family

Here at Rodina Straze we  care deeply about the lifetime happiness and welfare of our dogs and also the happiness of every family that chooses our program. 

Our application process may seem long and detailed, but this allows us to get to know our perspective homes better and to ensure our puppies are a good match. Once you become a part of the RS family you are provided a lifetime of friendship, support and education for your new family member.

Application Process

  • Please fill out and return the attached application at the bottom of this page.  Be as detailed as possible, as this allows us to get to know you better to ensure one of our dogs will be a good match for your home and lifestyle.  
  • Your application will then be followed up with a phone interview.   At this time we get to know one another better and I  can answer any questions you may have about our dogs and program.
  • After our conversation if you decide we are the breeder for you and we also feel that one of our dogs will make a good match.  Then you are welcomed to come meet us and the dogs personally, and are also invited to place a deposit to hold a puppy.   
  • Puppies can be picked up once they turn 8 weeks old and are not in an active fear period.  Please allow 2 hours of time when you pick up your puppy.  During this time you will receive a private training session.  This allows me to show you everything your puppy has learned so far and help you learn to work with your puppy once you get home.  We will also go through the Puppy package you receive so I can answer any and all questions you may have.
