How To Find A Breeder

by admin on March 2, 2012

Finding a breeder is never easy; this is for the fact that, there are many dishonest ones out there. They produce puppies that are so inbred and have a horde of health problems. Luckily, there are sill honest and good breeders. It is very important that you find these honest breeders when want to purchase a purebred dog. Here are some guidelines on how to spot them.

1. Start searching by asking your friends, vet, or any local breeding clubs. Ask for their recommendations.

2. Call these recommended breeders and ask if puppies are available. If there are, ask him if you can come and visit the puppies as well as the parents of the pups. If he says no, then find another one. A reputable breeder should allow you to learn more about the background of the litters.

3. Ask the breeder on how long he has been involved in breeding. A good breeder should have been doing this for years and is knowledgeable on the breed standards.

4. Inquire if the breeder screens for actual and potential health problems related with the breed. A reputable breeder should show certificates and records that prove that his dogs are in good conditions.

5. Always visit the puppies. Check their living conditions. A good breeder should keep their homes clean and safe.

6. An honest breeder will give you references of people who previously bought puppies from him.

7.  Last but not the least, an honest and reputable breeder should provide a written contract indicating that he guarantees the puppy that you bought is healthy or is in good condition.

My advice would be first off go onto the Kennel club site either in the UK or US. Then look for the breed you want. Which will be a Staffy of course!! Give them a call. If they have not got a puppy they will recommend another breeder if they are worth their salt.

Good luck with your puppy hunting

Best Wishes
