Breeders Of Puppies - The Right One

  • Choosing The Right Dog Breeder


    Breeders Of PuppiesWhen purchasing a puppy, it is important to buy from a reputable breeder. A dog that is purchased from a reputable breeder will be a healthy addition to your family. In contrast, purchasing a puppy from a puppy mill can be a nightmare. Many times, puppies will be unhealthy or have medical issues. 

    Not all breeders of puppies are created alike. There are some puppy breeders that love the breed and want to improve the breed. Then there are the puppy breeders that just want money and operate puppy mills. Learning the difference between the two is not too difficult. Here are some tips to help prospective owners.

    * Good breeders of puppies will only breed one or two types of dogs. If a breeder offers many different types of dogs for sale, this is not a good sign.

    * A good dog breeder will offer to show owners the facility where the puppy was bred and raised. This is important and prospective owners should make every attempt to visit the facility several times before bringing home their puppy. A breeder who offers to meet with owners off site to show them puppies may also not be legitimate.

    * A good breeder will want to make sure that the puppy is going to a good home. He or she will ask questions about the prospective owner’s background and lifestyle. This is not to be intrusive, but rather to see if a certain breed is a good fit. Owners who live in a small apartment and work most of the day may not be the best suited for an active, large dog breed.

    * A good breeder will offer a health guarantee on the puppy. If the puppy has any health problems immediately after the sale, most breeders will offer to pay expenses or to take the puppy back.

    * A good dog breeder will know the puppies and will be able to give information about the breed.

    * A good breeder will not have the puppies in small cages or crowded into small areas. Puppies that are housed in small cages can develop socialization and temperament problems as they grow. Puppies kept like this may also have problems with housebreaking.

    * A good dog breeder will let prospective owners see the puppy's parents

    It may take some time for prospective owners to find a reputable breeder that meets these guidelines. It is important to not settle for a breeder simply because the kids want a dog right away. Choosing the wrong breeder can cost an owner thousands in veterinary bills and a toll on the owner’s emotional health too. Finding the right breeder is a good step in the right direction. The right breeder will make choosing the perfect puppy for the family much easier.

    Purr Sonable These are some very helpful tips when it comes to breeders. I myself have never bought from a breeder, but I might consider it in the future and if I do, I'll be sure to refer back to this.

    Kayla Lew Great tips - I was going to buy a pure bred boxer a few years ago. When I checked into the breeder near me I was a bit shocked. He would not let me see where the dogs were kept. He wanted to bring them outside. He also did not really ask me to many questi...  more

    tiddles junior I could never understand how someone could buy a puppy or a dog unseen from a newspaper advert, but they do, then they complain when things go wrong.

    Soothsayer I visited the home of my puppy breeder every time. I wanted to see my puppy interacting with his siblings and I wanted to see the mother to ensure that she was fit and healthy. It makes sense!
