What To Ask A Shar Pei Breeder

Jul 29, 2008
When you are ready to choose a Shar Pei breeder you are going to need to ask a lot of the right questions because your breeder is someone you will be in contact with for many years to come. You need to trust your breeder and be able to communicate with them. And one of the ways you can determine that is by asking the right questions during the breeder search process. This is a little primer on what some of those questions could be and what answers you should be looking for.

Always ask what national breeder registry they are listed with so you know what breeding standards they adhere to. Any reputable breeder will be listed with a registry and you can confirm their listing yourself on the Internet. Be cautious of a breeder that is not listed with a registry and ask them why they are not listed and find out what they use for breeding standards.

A good Shar Pei breeder will be part of your life, and your pet's life, for many years to come after the transaction is completed.

It is important to have this open communication with your breeder and if your breeder is not into communication after the sale then it is time for a new breeder.

When a new owner leaves the property of a reputable Shar Pei breeder they do so with detailed care and feeding instructions and a sample of the dog's food so that the owner knows what to feed their new dog. If your breeder does not indicate they offer this kind of assistance to owners then you may want to move on to a different breeder.

Life is not predictable and you may want to know that your Shar Pei breeder will be there for your dog if unforeseen circumstances force you to have to leave your dog behind. Some breeders will take pets back so that they do not wind up abandoned or in a shelter.

You won't get a refund but if you find yourself in a situation where you cannot care for your dog anymore at least you know that your breeder cares enough to not want to see the dog abandoned or wind up in a shelter. Gestures like that is a wonderful thing for a breeder to offer.

Be ready with a lot of questions for your Shar Pei breeder. A good breeder will insist on questions and a good breeder may also be able to offer you free pet insurance so be sure to ask about that as well. Get to know your breeder because they will be a big part of your life and the future of your pet as well.
