Most dog breeders are reputable people who truly care about the health and welfare of the dogs they breed. There are several things that you should look for when buying a puppy from a dog breeder. When you are purchasing a puppy from a dog breeder do not be afraid to ask to see where the dog breeder lives. A puppy is a companion that will be with you for several years. To ensure your puppy's health you want to see the type of conditions that the puppy was born in. When you visit the dog breeders home you want to make sure that the kennel is clean and smells good.

Some puppy mills will disguise themselves as dog breeders. In order to find the right breeder you may want to ask veterinarians, boarding kennels, groomers and other pet owners in your local area who reputable dog breeders are. Another suggestion is to go to the local kennel club and ask there if they know of any local dog breeders.

When you are purchasing a puppy from a dog breeder make sure that you see the whole litter of puppies and at least one of the parents. You want to make sure that the other dogs do not have runny eyes or noses. The dogs should look healthy and well fed. A dog breeder should be knowledgeable about the type of dog you are buying. A reputable dog breeder will also ask you questions about you, your family and your lifestyle. Some dog breeders will ask you to sign a contract that specifies that it is your responsibility to take good care of the dog.

When you are buying a puppy make sure that the puppy is at least eight to twelve weeks old. There are so many kind-hearted dog breeders that care about finding each puppy a good home for life. Do not be surprised if your dog breeder makes a follow up call to see how the new dog is doing.
