DOG BREEDERS

When choosing a dog breeder, always be sure to do ample research of the breeder in question. ASK A LOT OF QUESTIONS.

Things to consider:

  • Number of years in business?
  • Any complaints with the Better Business Bureau (BBB) http://www.bbb.org/?
  • Number of past customers and references?
  • What temperament testing do they do?
  • Puppy's parents on site - can you meet them?
  • Have the puppy's parents had their hips and elbows x-rayed with no deficiencies per the Orthopedic Foundation For Animals http://www.offa.org/ or another reputable genetic affiliation?
  • Are dew-claws removed?
  • Potential past genetic health problems with parents?
  • How often are the puppies handled prior to leaving?
  • Are there warranties and guarantees if dog develops any health/hip problems?
  • Will the breeder take a dog back if placement doesn't work out?
