Why Pay More For a Pet Puppy From a  "Reputable Breeder"?

Both the sire and dam of this puppy  came from top quality breeding stock which was developed over generations of selective and knowledgeable breeding.

Both meet the requirement of the  written CKC  and AKC standard for the breed in conformation as well as  temperament.

Each has a pedigree, which has been studied and thoroughly researched. 

These dogs have been selected to breed to each other because they can both contribute to the excellence of the breed as well  as complement one another.

Before this breeding ever took place, both  male and female had test including hip X-Rays, eye tests and VWD  to determine that there were no physical or genetic problems that might be passed on to offspring. The breeder is well aware of the genetic  problems to which the breed is predisposed and uses no animal for  breeding unless it is certified clear of defects by a qualified  Veterinarian.

The health of her pups is guaranteed.

The breeder is a  professional and she has a good reputation to maintain. Her goal is to produce beautiful and sound specimens, which anyone would be proud to own.  Profit, if any is made, goes toward future breedings, always aimed  toward the betterment of the breed, or for show entries, new equipment  and important veterinary tests.

Both the mother and pups are fed the highest quality diet. Many trips to the vet assure her that mother and pups  are thriving under the very best care. The pups are raised in a busy  part of the house where they are socialized, groomed and exposed to  different kinds of stimuli. They are touched and talked to, cuddled and even sung to. They are never sold before they are ten weeks old.

Every  buyer is interviewed at length and pups are placed only in homes where they will receive the finest treatment.

The breeder spends time with each new owner, educating and answering questions. Follow-up contact is made to make sure the pup is adjusting well.

Each new owner receives a bill of sale and health guarantees, vaccination record and thorough puppy care and nutrition information.

If the puppy is not considered to  be of such quality as it will better the breed the puppy is sold with a limited registration or non-breeding agreements.

The new owners are  encouraged to continue a relationship with the breeder, and to call and  ask questions at any time during the dog's life.

Why Pay Less For a Pet Puppy From a  "Backyard Breeder"?

The sire and dam of this litter have an unknown past.  

The breeder has ever heard of the CKC or AKC written standard, and has no idea if her dogs meet those standards.

The breeder has never seen a written pedigree. 

The breeder is totally unaware of the genetic problems within the  breed.

Trips to the Veterinarian, except for dire emergencies or yearly  shots, are considered too expensive.

The breeders' only goal is to make  money off the sale of the puppies.  No thought is given to bettering the breed or improving the bloodline.

Puppies are sold with little or no guarantee.

These puppies are rarely born in the house and receive  little care other than what the mother gives.

To cut costs they are  weaned on low quality food and allowed to nurse on the mother as long  as possible to keep food bills down.

They are sold as soon  as possible because advertising and vaccines are expensive.

They may be  sold without shots, parasite checks, vet examinations, guarantees or  information of any kind.

They are sold to anyone who has the cash.  Although the puppy is of very poor quality, it is sold without a spay/neuter clause.

The new owner usually disappears with the pup, never to be seen  again.

When I am asked why my prices are so much higher than some others, this is my response.

  Anyone seeking a pet deserve nothing less than a nice quality, healthy and trusting animal and a breeder they can count on.
