Poodles In Pet Shops

Jul 1, 2008
If you want to acquire a Poodle as your pet, check out the list of Poodle breeders online. It is necessary for them to be affiliated to good clubs like the kennel club or the Poodle club. This ensures quality and a certain standard, because the main aim of these clubs is to promote all dog breeds. Pick out any breeder on this list and he will advice you about your choice. But first of all he would like to know from you, whether you are the right person for his dog.

For this purpose the dog-breeder often has a questionnaire, and the dog-owner has to reply to all of them. Most of the questions are regarding you and your family, as they will be the closest to the dog in the future. If the answers are to the breeder's satisfaction, he will consider selling the Poodle to you.

You are asked questions on how and where you live, whether you have other pets and how you will be looking after the dog. Only if he is satisfied, he will hand over his pet to you. If you buy your Poodle from a pet shop, there is no interaction with the breeder at all. Most the time they can hardly give you any advice regarding the dog as well.

Hence a pet shop is the place to avoid, when you are looking for a pet Poodle. The source of puppies at the pet shop can be puppy mills or backyard breeders. A Poodle from a backyard breeder may be priced low, but there is no information about it, or any queries that the dog-owner has. The dog's health and temperament, it s breeding history and general information about the Poodle is not available with such breeders.

The home of the breeder should be clean and hygienic, because that is from where you are taking your pet home. The dog's surroundings also reflect the quality of the breeder. If he is a conscientious breeder, he is looking towards improving the quality of the dogs, not just looking at the financial gain. He studies the background of the bloodlines in the Poodle's pedigree. In this way he is aiming at the prevention of genetic diseases and genetic disorders.

It is dangerous to buy a Poodle puppy from a backyard breeder, just because the price is much lower than a recognized breeder. You do save some money, but you do not get any information about the dog's health and temperament. You also don't get to know anything about the genetics of the breeding pair. Responsible Poodle breeders are the best choice, even though it may cost you more. But it will be worth the money, because you are getting high quality breeding, which educated professionals have researched. Each breeder has his own well-planned researched breeding programs, and the knowledge, time and money that goes into it is not to be scoffed at.

Often secondhand puppies are sold in pet stores and brokers bring them to the shops. The brokers bring them from puppy mills at a very young age. In fact they are too young at that time to stay away from their mothers. The pups are a danger to all, because they are not protected against any canine diseases like parvo or distemper. The pups look very sorry and sick, and people just buy them because they feel sorry for them. This sort of dog breeding and dog trading is incorrect and should not be encouraged in any way.

Therefore, do not buy your Poodle puppy from a pet shop. The puppies are generally brought from puppy mills, where the Poodles are bred, just to be sold and for business purposes. There is no concern about the quality of breeding, so their genetic health and temperament are not a matter of interest at all.
