You can find reputable breeders by asking for referrals from your veterinarian or trusted friends, by contacting local breed clubs, or visiting dog shows. Area kennel clubs are excellent sources of information about local breeders. Obedience training clubs in your area also offer promising leads, as do groomers, and boarding kennel operators.
Things To Look For
They breed dogs because they admire their breed and want to contribute to its betterment. They are proud of their chosen breed and will be knowledgeable about it.
Responsible breeders allow bitches to recover sufficiently from one breeding before doing another.
The breeder guarantees their pups free of genetic diseases common in their breed and will replace the pup if the disease should crop up.
They evaluate their puppies as show and breeding quality or pet quality and sell pet puppies with a spay-neuter contract.
The breeders are more than happy to tell you about their dogs, environment and breeding conditions.
The breeder promises to take the dog in (not return your money) if you can't keep it, for the life of the dog.
The breeder was happy to answer all your questions and made you feel comfortable asking for advice.
A truly responsible and professional breeder cares where their puppies will grow up. They will keep any puppies they cannot place in suitable homes.
Pet quality puppies are not deficient - they just may not meet the breed standard for size, color, coat type, bone structure, head type, etc. Many responsible breeders sell pet puppies at a lower price than show puppies.

All buyers are strongly encouraged to carefully document, in writing, all representations, promises, statements, warranties and guarantees made by sellers of puppies for sale and older dogs for sale. Such documentation should be signed by the seller.
