Today, there are lots of dog breeders around us, but not all of them are good. If you buy dog from puppy mills, then chances are very high that you will receive low quality dogs. Finding a good dog breeder is not difficult if you know certain tips.
Below is a list of some tips and tricks to find out a good dog breeder.
At first you need to decide what type of breed you have been looking for. There are many things to consider such as schedule, temperament, health problems, etc. Then start searching.
Try your best to find out a well-known dog breeder. Contact few breeders and do interview. Usually, an experienced breeder is better, but don’t ignore other factors. Do check their registration. They must be registered with well-known, legal organization. In the USA, all dog breeders should be registered with American Kennel Club—AKC.
Sometimes, dogs might have certain health problems. You need to ask to the breeder to know everything about health. You should know that today, many good dog breeders do genetic tastings and offer health guarantees. You could also contact past customers to know about the quality of the dogs.
Environment is also of paramount importance. You can’t know ins and outs of a dog breeder if you don’t visit it. Have a close look at the environment. Dogs can’t be healthy in bad environment. If it looks messy or overcrowded, then you should leave it.
Also, try to see the parents. If father is not available, then try to see the mother. Look at the behavior. Chances are very high that your dog will have the same behavior.
One of the best ways to find out a good breeder is to contact veterinarians. They do have good knowledge about it. You may need to go to a distant place to collect good dogs. Do it if your local providers are not good enough. Good luck!
