Things to Look For When Choosing Best Chihuahua Breeders
There are so many Chihuahua breeders in the world that it can be very confusing when trying to choose the right one. There are all kinds of websites on the internet that allow you to search for Chihuahuas. Some of them you can join, but most of them are free to join. So how do you know which is the best website to use to find a Chihuahua breeder?
– Avoid Long and Waffle sentences: All good Breeders are known for their excellent communication skills.
They should be able to give you the most informative speech possible. If they try to sound too long and waffle, chances are they aren’t as good as they appear. Avoid long and waffle sentences at all costs.
– Avoid Using Inconsistent Sentence Structures: A lot of good Chihuahua breeders make use of long and waffle sentences.
If your breeder uses this, chances are he or she isn’t that great with words. You must get to know your breeder because good communication is very important between owners and dogs.
– Ask them about their background: Ask your breeder how they became a breeder.
Did they start working with dogs just because it was easy or did they have to go to college? When you ask them, make sure you are getting all the relevant answers. They should be able to tell you what type of dogs they got in the past and how they began their business. You should also ask about their breeding methods. How did they get started with breeding Chihuahuas?
– Where did they get their dogs from? Did the previous owner give them to you or did you buy them from a breeder?
If you bought them from a breeder, ask them about the dog’s behavior and talk about any issues they had with the previous owners. This is a very important part of identifying good and bad Chihuahua breeders because many good breeders will willingly take in older dogs that need to be re-settled. However, there are also many bad dogs in this world and you have to be very careful about picking out a Chihuahua breeder.
– Examine the pups’ shots: Examine the shots of the Chihuahua puppy that you are about to adopt.
Check for any health problems such as distemper, rabies, and heartworm disease. Some other health concerns that you can check on include allergies (both inhalant allergies and food allergies), diabetes, dehydration, and feline leukemia. You can easily do these checks at the chihuahua breeder’s office within an hour or two of your initial interview. Remember to bring along a copy of your passport as well in case the chihuahua that you are about to adopt requires some type of health care while you are still waiting for your paperwork to arrive at the new home.
– The Age: There is no hard and fast rule about how old a Chihuahua should be when it comes to getting adopted.
It depends on the pet’s parents, the age of the animal itself, and the patience level of the adopting parents. The rule of thumb is that the longer the pet has been bred by humans, the older it should be.
– The Price: As we all know, Chihuahuas are expensive pets.
Usually, breeders sell their puppies and pups for around $3500. They may offer more but that is a general price that most people will not pay. If you have the budget then by all means go for it and make an offer. Just make sure that you have all the documents needed such as passport, birth certificate, medical records, pedigree and some of these breeders will even provide a collar and leash with your purchase!
