Getting The Real Scoop From Chihuahua Breeders

October 8, 2009

When you start looking for a Chihuahua breeder to get your dog from then you are going to want to find out all the important things about that breeder before you do business with them. To do this you need to know what to ask a prospective one so that you can tell if they are reputable and if they know the business of properly raising and breeding Chihuahuas as well. Make sure you ask any questions you have, as a reputable one will expect questions.35943203

The very first thing you want to know is what national breeder registry the breeder is listed with. A listing with a registry means that the breeder understands and uses the practices of good breeding and that is something you absolutely want. If they are reputable they will have something to show you that lets you know what registry they are listed with.

Get your breeder to talk about the support they offer after the dog is home with you. They should not disappear after you leave their property because any owner will need contact with their breeder in case something goes wrong with their new pet. A good breeder will be available for consultation for many years after you bring the dog home and if they indicate that this is not the case then consider another breeder.

Probably one of the most important questions about a prospective Chihuahua breeder you will ask will be asked not to them. but rather to your vet. If you do not have a vet then establish a relationship with one and discuss the various breeders in the area with your vet to be sure you are dealing with one your vet trusts. A stamp of approval from your vet is extremely important for the future health of your new dog.

As painful as it may be, any good Chihuahua breeder will have a policy where they will take back the pet at any stage of its life if the owner can no longer care for it, to avoid having the dog be abandoned. They will not offer a cash refund but they will offer the dog a second chance at a new owner and offer the old owner a chance to do the right thing and not leave their little pet abandoned to die.

Deciding on a Chihuahua breeder is important so be ready to ask a lot of questions before you settle on one. A good one will be expecting a lot of questions so don’t think you are doing anything new and many reputable ones will insist that you ask as many questions as you can think of because to a good breeder a solid relationship with the owner is just as important as any other part of the dog’s life.
