How to spot a fake Chihuahua breeder
So you and your family have decided that it is time to get a new pet and the pet you have decided on is a Chihuahua. Before you even start to talk to any Chihuahua breeders you will want to do some homework so you make sure that you do not get a fake breeder or a breeder that is not reputable. You want to be certain you are doing business with a reputable breeder because your dog's health depends on it.
The Internet is filled with the many breeder registries that any good breeder will want to be a part of to show that they conform to healthy standards of breeding dogs. The main registry is the National Kennel Club but they are only one of many registries around. Check and see if the breeder you are considering is a member of any of the national registries before you talk to them personally.
A Chihuahua breeder is so much more than just someone you buy your dog from. Breeders are professionals that you should be able to call on for advice and also for when something seems to be wrong. A good breeder will have an open line of communication with the owner for years to come to make sure the Chihuahua is healthy and happy for a very long time. A breeder that is difficult to get a hold of is not a breeder you want to do business with.
A good breeder loves animals and is just as concerned with how you care for you dog as you are. A reputable breeder will send a new owner home with detailed care and feeding instructions so that the new owner knows what their dog needs and they also send home a food sample so the new owner knows what to feed their dog. If you are talking to a breeder that is not offering detailed care instructions then you are talking to the wrong breeder.
Any reputable Chihuahua breeder is going to offer a new owner free pet insurance for their new dog that extends for six weeks after the purchase date.
These policies extend for six weeks after you purchase your dog and can help at that first appointment. If your breeder does not offer free pet insurance after the sale then you may want to question why.
Buying a Chihuahua is something you and your family look forward when you finally make that decision to invest in a new pet. Choosing the wrong breeder can make the experience, and your new dog's life, a very bad one so take your time and ask a lot of questions.
A bad breeder can cause you nothing but problems while a good breeder is by your side for many years to come. So take your time and make the right choice when you go looking for a Chihuahua breeder to get your new Chihuahua pup from.
