Getting Down To Basics with Dogs

How to Choose a French Bulldog Breeder Selecting a French Bulldog breeder is the most crucial step to can take before buying a French Bulldog puppy. A good breeder will serve as your mentor, veterinary referral source, resource guide, and confidant when the puppy has chewed off your new shoes. Luckily, there are a lot of ways to find a French Bulldog breeder, but the pointers below should help you with your research and screening your prospects: > Ask for a personal meeting with the breeder. A good breeder would love to meet with you as much as you’d want to meet with them. This first meeting could be at a dog show or any similar event, but when you talk about picking up your puppy, you WANT to actually visit the house of the breeder house in person. If a breeder doesn’t want you to, be very suspicious.

> Meet the puppy’s mom. If a breeder doesn’t want you to meet the puppy’s dam or mom, he’s probably not even a breeder. Beware of the so-called “puppy brokers” or people whose puppies are imported from Europe and resold at ridiculously marked up prices. This practice usually results in frail and sickly puppies, or moody or temperamental adults. So why do we want the mom and not the dad? Because most probably, your pup’s sire, or father, does not live with the mom. The best dog – not the closest – will often be used by a good breeder.
What Research About Animals Can Teach You
> Healthy puppies come from tested parents! Ask your prospective breeder about health tests performed on their Frenchies. These tests are usually done on a dog’s spine, eyes, hips and patella; recently, they have been taking DNA tests to detect juvenile cataracts, which can cause blindness. Showing or competing in a sport with their Frenchies proves that the breeder does care for the dogs, and isn’t only producing puppies for the cash. Having a “show dog” is not only for show – it means the breeder you are considering has spent time and money into ensuring that the puppies are born from parents who are good examples of the breed. > Be ready for questions. Expect a good breeder to want to know much about you – if you have other pets and how many, where you live, how long you’ll be at work everyday, etc. This is because they want the puppies to have the best home possible. > Inquire about club affiliations. A good French Bulldog breeder will probably belong to at least one French Bulldog clubs, and maybe some general canine clubs too. > Don’t fall for cheap deals. Breeding French Bulldogs properly demands money and time. Health tests, quality vet care, showing, stud services – these are just some of the things breeders spend on. If you find a puppy that is a bit too cheap, the breeder most probably cut corners when raising it.
