The best dog breeders….
Have the dam present with the litter
Keep the dogs indoors with their family
Don’t breed mixed breed dogs.
Don’t take Visa
Don’t make their living selling pets
Don’t breed dogs whose previous litters had birth defects
Have vet records for each pup.
X-ray hips of both adult parents in large breeds prone to hip dysplasia. Ditto elbows.
Don’t offer sleazy “co- ownership” contracts.
Take their pups back. Ok, maybe without a refund but they take them.
Don’t make you use their vet for problems.
