How To Chose A Good Breeder?

Finding a good breeder can be a challenge for someone that has never had a dog before or doesn’t know a lot about breeders.

This is the shortened version to quickly know whether a breeder is any good:

  • They give you their contact information.
  • They let you visit their home.
  • They don’t choose a puppy for you.
  • They will tell you the “bad” traits of the breed.
  • You will be able to see the parents.
  • They will answer your questions about the breed. 
  • The parents will be tested for hereditary diseases. 
  • They will often have a waiting list.
  • Past buyers continue to buy puppies with them regardless of high prices. 
  • The puppies were monitored by a vet.

You can read more about what makes a good breeder here.
