When you want to purchase a new puppy, it's a good idea to find a reputable dog breeder who specializes in breeding and raising the type of dog you want. The environment in which puppies are bred and nurtured can have a significant impact on their quality and temperament.

The Basics of Choosing a Dog Breeder

When you want to purchase a new puppy, it's a good idea to find a reputable dog breeder who specializes in breeding and raising the type of dog you want. The environment in which puppies are bred and nurtured can have a significant impact on their quality and temperament.

Knowledgeable breeders who are genuinely interested in the animals they raise are likely to provide the highest quality puppies born to mother dogs who receive the best care possible during their pregnancies.

Veterinarian Referrals

When searching for a good breeder, it's a good idea to check with your veterinarian for referrals. It's likely that he or she knows the names of high quality breeders who will be able to meet your needs. Most professional dog breeders have good working relationships with local veterinarians, and it is likely that vets will be knowledgeable about which breeders are the most reputable.

Breed Specialization

Dog breeders who limit their work to just a few breeds of dogs tend to be the best choices. Those who change their breeds based on current dog ownership trends are sometimes more concerned with making a quick buck than in developing healthy, well-bred animals. Individuals who are dedicated to specific breeds are usually very knowledgeable about their areas of specialty and are committed to helping advance the breeds they champion.

Professional dog breeders are more than willing share information with prospective customers about the advantages and disadvantages of owning different breeds of dogs. They will ask questions about the home in which their animals will be placed. Dedicated breeders will not sell their puppies to individuals who are planning to house them in inappropriate environments,

Puppy Healthcare and Guarantee

Reputable dog breeders make sure that their adult dogs and puppies receive proper medical care at all times. When you purchase a puppy from a dog breeder, you should ask to see documentation of the puppy's medical treatment to date. Thoroughbred puppies should be screened for medical problems prior to being sold. Breeders often provide a health guarantee with each puppy sold.

Making Your Choice

Choosing a new puppy is an important decision that will affect everyone in your household. By taking the time to make sure you are doing business with a reputable dog breeder, you can rest assured that you are getting a puppy who received the proper care throughout its gestation and first few weeks or months of life. Your new pet will become an important member of your family, so it's important to make sure that you make the right decision when choosing a dog breeder.
