answer all your questions.

  • Ask you several questions about yourself, your lifestyle, and your family situation. The breeder may ask to meet your entire family. Good breeders want to make sure their animals are placed in loving, responsible homes. They will go to great lengths to ensure this.

  • Be concerned about the animal for a lifetime. They may ask you to sign a contract, specifying your responsibility in taking good care of your new dog. Expect a good breeder to follow up on how the animal is doing, even after you've taken the pet home. Answer questions, even after you've taken the pet home.

  • Keep puppies or kittens until they're at least 6 weeks old. (Actually, 8 to 12 weeks is preferable.)

  • Provide references. A good breeder will provide as many references as you ask for, willingly. It's also a good idea to ask for a veterinary reference, too.

  • Provide lots of information. They should provide all the needed information to register your dog with a breed club like the American Kennel Club or Cat Fancier's Association. Plus, they should provide information about raising, training, feeding and proper veterinary care.
  • Here's what you should ask.
    • What is the breeder's history and experience? You want to know how long the breeder has been breeding this particular breed. And is the breeder a member of a breed club?

    • Health history of the puppies and parents. Ask whether the parents been screened for typical diseases associated with their breed. Also ask what genetic diseases are prevalent in the breed. Plus, are the parents registered with the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA)? Have the puppies/kittens had their first round of vaccinations? Which ones? De-worming?

    • The temperament and characteristics of the breed. The breeder should be able to rattle off the typical characteristics of the breed, what type of family situation is best for this breed, whether the breed is good with small children, the elderly, etc.

    • Return/refund policies. The breeder should be willing to replace the puppy or kitten, or refund your money if any genetically-linked illness occurs at any time during the animal's life, or if the animal gets sick and dies soon after coming home with you. If, for any reason, you are not able to keep your pet, a good breeder will gladly take the pet back or help you find a new owner.
