4 Ways to Know You’re Buying Puppies from a Good Breeder

By Brooke Chaplan 9 days ago at 12:00 am


When you are ready to buy a puppy for yourself or your family, you must consider several things, including the best breed of dog. Each breed of dog has certain physical characteristics along with certain types of behaviors. When you live in a tiny apartment, selecting a smaller breed of dog that is quiet is probably a good idea, but if you happen to be living in a rural area, you may prefer having a larger dog who can protect your property and run around. In addition, you should choose a puppy from a reputable breeder to avoid having a dog with mental or physical abnormalities. Here are some tips for finding a reputable breeder.

Has a Clean Facility for Animals

If you are buying a puppy, then check the breeder’s facilities to ensure that the place is clean. You won’t want to buy an animal from a puppy mill where the dogs aren’t fed properly and may have abnormalities that are passed down to a new generation of pets. Reputable breeders tend to have only one breed of dog, such as French bulldogs or German Shepherds, and they make sure that only certain animals are mated to produce the best litters of puppies.

The Breeder Will Ask You Questions

A professional dog breeder cares about where the puppies will live, and this means that the breeder will ask you questions, either in person or perhaps by having you fill out an online questionnaire. The breeder will want to know what type of home you have and will want to understand why you want to buy a puppy. Other concerns will include knowing about your family along with ensuring that you understand how much work having a new puppy can be for everyone.

American Kennel Club Member

When you are looking for a new dog, choose a breeder who is a member of the American Kennel Club. These experts have training in breeding dogs to avoid inbred health issues that can lead to a pet with physical issues or behavioral problems. The breeder keeps track of the male and female dogs’ best features to have new litters of healthy and happy puppies.

Will You Get Paperwork?

A good breeder can provide paperwork for your puppy so that you will understand its breeding history. You will receive special documents when you buy a purebred puppy. The breeder will also have documents concerning the puppy’s vaccinations so that you will understand how to care for the animal’s medical needs. Make sure you ask your breeder what documents and immunizations they supply.

Ongoing Communication

The breeder who sells you a puppy will want to have ongoing communication with you. If you have any problems, then the breeder is willing to provide information. By following these tips, you will be able to make sure you buy puppies from a reputable source, which will ensure they grow into healthy, well-adjusted dogs that are perfect for you and your family.
