Chihuahua Breeders To Avoid

Jul 15, 2008
Anyone can throw on a suit and a smile, tell you the stuff you want to hear, and try to sell you a Chihuahua you may not want. A reputable Chihuahua breeder is someone that you can ask a lot of questions of and they will not be offended. A reputable breeder is going to insist that you do your homework and find the breeder that works best for you because they know that an owner and a breeder will be in touch for many years to come so a strong relationship is important. You will find that an honest breeder will hide nothing from you.

Your quest should begin by asking which national breeder registry the breeder belongs to. The American Kennel Club is the one everyone knows but there are others out there just as acceptable. Check their registration for yourself and see what you think of that breeder's group breeding standards and if you are comfortable with them. If they do not belong to a registry you need to ask why.

If you do not already have a vet picked out then the best time to decide on one and then get to know that vet is when you are considering a Chihuahua breeder. Your vet is very concerned about your pets and they will not allow you to get a pet from someone they do not trust or they know is not reputable. Your vet is a fantastic resource when you are considering a Chihuahua breeder and you should make sure to seek out your vet's opinion prior to making any final decisions.

Next you should probably talk to the local law enforcement officials and ask them if they are familiar with any of the breeders you are considering. Needless to say that if the law is familiar with a breeder, but in a bad way, then you probably want to steer very clear of that breeder and move on to someone that is not on a first name basis with the police in your town. This is serious business and doing that business with a criminal is a very bad idea.

After you have gone through asking everyone else what they think of your prospective Chihuahua breeders it is now time to talk to the breeders themselves. See what their attitude is about breeding and gauge whether or not this is someone you want to do business with for many years to come.

A pet becomes a family member so make sure you are making the right choice and ask your prospective Chihuahua breeders a lot of questions.

A relationship between breeder and owner goes on for many years and if you make the wrong breeder choice then that is something you may end up regretting down the road.

Only you can make that determination and you should only make that determination after you have done more than sufficient research.
