What makes a quality Breeder?
Ask yourself the following questions when visiting a breeder:
1. Does the breeder have happy, healthy, sociable dogs and puppies? Like human babies, puppies should be well fed and clean. That means the adult dogs should be friendly, well fed and clean too.
2. Do you have a checklist that will help you in making the right decision about your new pet? Examples - How much grooming does the dog require? How much exercise does the dog require? Are there health issues common to this breed?
3. Does the breeder ask you lots of questions about your home and family? Breeders also have a checklist, known as an application to acquire one of their dogs. Breeders really want to feel confident that an adult dog or puppy, who has been loved and cared for, is going to the right loving home.
4. Does the breeder welcome interested families into their homes to visit with the dogs and puppies? Normal cleanliness is a must for the health of all concerned. A distinct and strong sanitizing odor is not good for dogs or humans.
5. Does the breeder have the dog's health records available for examination? There are several tests for both male and female that should be done and passed before any breeding takes place. Does the breeder provide potential buyers written proof of these tests from the examining organization?
6. Does the breeder agree with and conform to the breed standards approved by the American Kennel Club and The Weimaraner Club of America?
Why do all reputable breeders go to all this work for your dog?
It is their hope to provide a predictable Weimaraner in temperament, ability and conformation so you will have a wonderful and loving lifetime companion.
