    We are experienced dog owners and are looking for a new puppy. Our neighbours have some healthy puppies for sale. My question is:

    Would it be stressful for the puppy to be so close to her Mum?

    If both dogs were in the back garden they would only be a few meters apart.

    I'm not an expert, but a few questions might help others advise:

    What sort of fencing have you got? And if it is see-through, would it be an option to out up something more solid?

    What breed/type are the mother and father?

    What is the mother's nature like - is she easygoing and friendly, does she get on well with other dogs?

    Have the pups been well socialised so far? There's a lot a breeder can do to get this going even before they're vaccinated.

    What gender pup are you planning on getting? A male would be a safer bet, but unless the mum gets spayed, you'd need to neuter him once he's old enough.
