Characteristics Of A Bad Chihuahua Breeder

Jan 30, 2008
Check and see if the Chihuahua breeder you are dealing with is listed with one of the national breeder registries on the Internet. A good Chihuahua breeder will offer detailed care instructions for you and stay in touch after you buy your dog. If your Chihuahua breeder does not offer you free pet insurance then question why.

It is time to expand your family and everyone has decided that they really want a Chihuahua for the newest family member. The single most important decision you can make in the search for your new Chihuahua is the first decision you make and that is deciding on what Chihuahua breeder you want to get your dog from. Choosing the wrong breeder could cause problems down the road so take your time and make sure you make the right decision.

A great resource for checking out Chihuahua breeders is the national breeder registries that you can find on the Internet. The gold standard for breeder registries is the National Kennel Club so you may want to start there. It is important that your breeder not only understands the principles of good breeding but also subscribes to them by being listed under a breeder registry. This should be the first place you look for a breeder.

A Chihuahua breeder is so much more than just someone you buy your dog from. Breeders are professionals that you should be able to call on for advice and also for when something seems to be wrong. A good breeder will have an open line of communication with the owner for years to come to make sure the Chihuahua is healthy and happy for a very long time. A breeder that is difficult to get a hold of is not a breeder you want to do business with.

A good breeder loves animals and is just as concerned with how you care for you dog as you are. A reputable breeder will send a new owner home with detailed care and feeding instructions so that the new owner knows what their dog needs and they also send home a food sample so the new owner knows what to feed their dog. If you are talking to a breeder that is not offering detailed care instructions then you are talking to the wrong breeder.

When a Chihuahua breeder gains a positive reputation and keeps their breeder registry listing in good standing they are approached by insurance companies to offer new owners limited free pet insurance policies. These policies extend for six weeks after you purchase your dog and can help at that first appointment. If your breeder does not offer free pet insurance after the sale then you may want to question why.

A good breeder is just as important to your dog's health and happiness as you are or the vet is. Choosing a fake breeder can cause many problems down the road and make your dog's life, and your life, miserable. So be careful when choosing a breeder and be sure to ask a lot of questions because this first decision is probably the most important decision you will make for your dog and for the future happiness of you and your family.
