How To Pick The Perfect Dog Breeder

  • Image 1

Product Description

If you are looking for a faithful friend to stand by you come hell and high water then you can’t do any better than a dog!

Any old sayings that you happened to have heard that emphasize this point are very true. Whether you are looking for a bounding puppy that is full of life to keep you youthful and active or an easy-going pooch to keep you company at home, you can find “the one” that you are looking for with a lot of research and a bit of effort!

Finding the dog of your dreams can take weeks, months or even years if you don’t do your research because you will not know what you’re doing. Finding the best dog for you is like anything else in life – you reap what you sow.

If you love dogs, even if you have never owned one before, then you can appreciate the fact that any dog you own has to have a personality that will match yours. In a way, finding the perfect dog is like finding the perfect partner. You have to be prepared to spend time with him or her, offer your love unconditionally and look after him or her in sickness and in health. The love that you give your dog will be returned tenfold.

Picture the scene – you are trudging through open countryside without a care in the world, just enjoying nature and the company of your best friend. The sun shines down on you and lifts your heart. As you head back home, the one living being that loves you most in the world follows you, wanting to play and basking in your undivided attention.

He comes to heel as soon as you command him, the picture of health and happiness. As you flop down on the sofa, he lies at your feet, wanting fusses and returns the love by gently licking your hand. You spend the rest of the day relaxing in front of the TV with warm feet and a warm heart. Until it’s time to play again that is …

Whilst this may all sound really great to you, making the decision to buy a dog is definitely not one that should be taken lightly. Before you do anything else, you need to choose the right dog, and that starts with choosing the right place to look for him or her.

You have a wide range of options, from a dog’s home to a pet store to an individual dog breeder. Whilst getting a dog from one of the above may seem easy enough and thus is appealing, you cannot trust either the place that you get the dog from or the dog him or herself.

An individual dog "breeder" may be offering cute puppies but the likelihood is that he or she is doing it for profit. Adopting a dog from a rescue shelter is a great humanitarian gesture, but there is always an element of risk. You can never know the dog’s full history and this may be a problem if you have children or value your home. Of course, there are the absolute gems but you just never know. Add to that the risk of your chosen dog having a disease because shelters are packed with animals and this should complete the picture for you. Pet stores are simply outlets for puppy mills and need no further explanation as to why you should not consider them.

    Posted by William Drescher http://www.HoundsOfHeaven.com on 6th Dec 2008

    A very brief but very insightful eBook that covers all the bases in selecting an excellent breeder (there being no perfect breeders). As a breeder of Irish Wolfhounds I want all my prospective puppy people to know how to select a breeder. It makes my job much easier.
