What You Should Look for in a Pedigree Puppy Breeder

 When it comes to buying a puppy, finding a responsible breeder is one of the first and most important steps to finding your new furry best friend. After all, a puppy is for life and knowing that they’ve had the best start in life is going to be incredibly important. 

Breeders, such as this reputable Havanese breeder are excellent resources for your puppy buying process. Not only are they the bridge between you and bringing the puppy home, but they are also to be relied upon throughout the lifetime of your dog.   

A breeder can be thought of as a private guide to all things related to your dog such as finding the right one, to how to take care of it for life- especially if they specialise in one particular breed of dog. 

Like any major decision you make in your lifetime, doing your homework is incredibly important when it comes to making a commitment to one breeder. Here are some essential tips for choosing your breeder. 

Take the time to meet them 

A good breeder should have things in place that will allow you to meet up with them, whether in person or via video. There are many things that you will be able to observe through meeting a breeder and the dogs in their care. These include whether the premises are clean and safe for the dogs, whether the owner has a clear passion for dogs. It also includes the dogs’ behaviour and mannerisms. It should be clear that they are well fed and socialised. They shouldn’t be shy to come forward to interact with strangers. 

Ask the right questions 

When meeting with a breeder for the first time, make sure to come prepared with a list of questions about the breed and the puppy. Good breeders will make it clear that you can never ask too many questions. How do they react to your questions? Do they explain things clearly? Do you feel like you have a good rapport? Responsible breeders want to see their dogs in happy, loving forever homes and will be happy to share their knowledge.

Meet the parents 

There’s no better way for you to be able to see how your dog will grow up than by looking at his parents! This will give you a sense of your dog’s temperament, size, and appearance as they grow older. A breeder who doesn’t allow you to meet the dog parents should be challenged and you should consider going elsewhere if they refuse. 

Have some patience 

Puppy purchases should never be made on a whim. You won’t meet a breeder and bring home a puppy on the same day. Puppies are usually kept with their mother for the first 2-3 months of their life so that they get all the development that they need with their mother and littermates. 

It also means that the breeder has time to come and inspect your home and give you all of the necessary tips and tricks needed to puppy-proof your home before welcoming your new arrival home!

  3. It is better to give rescued dogs a furever home than to buy a pedigree dog. Glad to see you posting here again.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
