Looking For A Fake Shar Pei Breeder

Mar 11, 2008
Make sure the Shar Pei breeder you are dealing with is listed with a national breeding agency. It would be a good idea to check the information available with local law enforcement and the Better Business Bureau on your Shar Pei breeder. Always check with your vet when searching for a Shar Pei breeder.

When the time has come to get your new Shar Pei dog you will more than likely find yourself looking for a good Shar Pei breeder. Some people say they are a Shar Pei breeder but in reality they are just faking their way through it and have no idea how to properly breed and raise Shar Pei dogs. There are questions you can ask and things you can do to tell if you are dealing with a bad Shar Pei breeder or not and you should always do your research for your own good.

Always ask what national breeding registry the Shar Pei breeder is listed with. A national breeding registry will indicate what breeding standard they use and what kind of quality they look for in their dogs. If a breeder is not listed with a national breeder registry then ask why and also ask what they use for a breeding standard so you can find out how they gauge the quality of the dogs they sell.

Check with local law enforcement about the Shar Pei breeder you are considering just in case they have had any run-ins with the law in the recent past. It is always a good idea to check with law enforcement because you can never tell just by looking at someone if they are dishonest or not. Chances are that if a particular breeder has had a run in with the law then they are probably not a breeder that you want to be doing this very important business with.

Most reputable businesses are listed with the Better Business Bureau and you can do a quick internet search on the Better Business Bureau website to see if the Shar Pei breeder you are considering has ever had any complaints lodged against them regarding their business practices and if those complaints were answered. If you see a lot of business complaints then move on because you are not dealing with a real professional breeder.

As with any other situation regarding your pet your vet can be a great help in weeding out the fake Shar Pei breeder that you may be considering. Your vet can give you guidelines to use in your search and may even be able to offer an opinion or two about the breeders you are considering. Always listen to the advice of your vet, as they are just as concerned with your pet's health and well being as you are.

Finally you should talk to the breeder yourself and get a feel for how they run their business when whether or not they seem to know what they are talking about. It does not take much to realize that someone does not know their business and when you are making an important decision like deciding on a Shar Pei breeder then you need to ask a lot of tough questions.
