Does it really make a difference where you get your puppy?
Is it worth the effort to find a “responsible breeder”?
YES, absolutely, to both of those questions.
A “RESPONSIBLE BREEDER”:
- Will always choose healthy parents to breed.
- Will breed based on producing puppies with good genetics, good health and good temperament.
- Will be registered with the state.
- Will be there to inform you on proper puppy care.
- Will try to the best of their ability to answer your questions.
- Will provide all necessary Vet care, vaccinations and health check-ups for their litters.
- Will often have a waiting list for their puppies in advance.
- Will match and place each puppy personally with each person/family, not through a 3rd party.
- Will pamper each pup with lots of love and quality attention daily.
Genetics play a huge roll in a dog’s temperament, as do the various experiences during the first several weeks of life. Socialization is very important for your puppies. Choosing a puppy from a “responsible breeder” is not only a socially responsible thing to do, but also is the best way to find “your best friend” – a healthy puppy who grows into a healthy and happy dog.
