Our questionnaire

The DoggyDoor questionnaire is a series of questions that all buyers must complete before they can get in touch with a breeder on DoggyDoor. Once completed, the buyer's answers will be displayed to any breeder that they enquire with in an easy-to-read format. All other users on DoggyDoor will not be privy to another buyer's DoggyDoor profile, for privacy reasons.

The DoggyDoor team has compiled this list of questions based on feedback from our breeders, and any further feedback is certainly welcome. The questionnaire is broken down into the following 5 sections:

  1. Your household
  2. Your lifestyle
  3. Your past pet experience
  4. Your space
  5. Your photos
