If you have decided that a Chihuahua puppy is the best pet for you, you will not have trouble finding a Chihuahua breeder to purchase your puppy from. However, during your search you might also come in contact with a number of breeders who do not breed their Chihuahuas in a responsible fashion. When it comes to Chihuahua breeding, it is important to shop around and ask the right questions when selecting the best breeder for you. There are some guidelines that you can follow that will help to determine whether a breeder is breeding his dogs responsibly to help ensure that you receive a puppy that is healthy, good tempered and attractive.

This is why it is so important to take your time in shopping for a reputable Chihuahua breeder who will be able to provide dogs that are healthy and attractive. Finding a good breeder is not as hard as it sounds, as long as you know the guidelines to look for when you are searching for the best breeder for you.

There are plenty of steps that you can take to ensure that the breeder that you select practices responsible Chihuahua breeding. First, check with your state or national Chihuahua clubs for a listing of reputable breeders in your area. The American Kennel Club is another good source for responsible breeders of all kinds of dogs. Your veterinarian may have names of good Chihuahua breeders and friends with Chihuahuas might be able to guide you in the right direction as well. Publications will also have listings in them for Chihuahua breeders, so check your local pet supply store for these magazines and trade publications. If you go to dog events like obedience classes and agility trials, you might be able to collect names of breeders as well.
