What Makes A Fake Shar Pei Breeder

Aug 26, 2008
You have decided on getting a Shar Pei and now the next step is to choose a Shar Pei breeder that you can get your dog from. A Shar Pei breeder is an important decision as this is someone you will be need to stay in contact with for many years to come regarding the health and well being of your pet. So make sure you make the right choice and ask a lot of questions so that you can tell if the Shar Pei breeder you are talking to knows their business or not.

Always check and see if the breeder you are talking to is listed with a national breeder registry. A national breeder registry will have standards set for breeding that their breeders subscribe to. If a breeder is not listed with a registry then ask them why and find out what standards for breeding they use if they are not using proven standards set up by a national organization.

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.

If you are researching a breeder and local law enforcement has a thick file on that breeder then there is probably a really good chance that you do not want to deal with that breeder. A history of run-ins with the law can usually indicate someone that is not very trustworthy and you need to trust your breeder.

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.

Talk to the breeder yourself and ask a lot of questions. A good breeder is going to insist that you ask a lot of questions and they want to know as much about you as you want to know about them. A less than reliable breeder will not be one for conversation and they will just want to get on to the transaction. That is exactly the kind of breeder you do not want to deal with.
