Congratulations on your new pup! It's always so exciting to bring a new little pup home! I agree that the most important factor is how comfortable you are with the Vet and staff. I pay even more attention to the staff's behavior that the Vet's because they spend much more time with the dogs. I have recently switched Vets. My old Vet was fine but they do seem to change doctors frequently so when I find one I really like, I'm never sure how long she/he will be there. My new Vet is equally fine but his staff shines! They know and love LDs! When I went to pick Dakota up after his neuter, I was told to turn right around and leave because the staff had fallen in love with and decided to adopt Dakota! --I held my ground!
