Default Responsible selling of puppies

Never expect to make money because it will not happen!

1] All puppies should be vet checked a minimum of three times before leaving.
2] All puppies should at least have the first vaccines, mine have one and two done.
3] Puppies should be at least 8 weeks old before leaving no exceptions, mine are 12 weeks.
4] Puppies should be spay or neutered before leaving, or at the very least sold with a contract and the contract should be verified and if not fulfilled then the puppy should be removed.
5] Puppies should be tatooed or microchipped before leaving and registered before leaving.
6] Puppies should come with a guarantee of a minimum of 2 years, mine are 5 years
7] Puppies should be well socialized to children, other pets and daily house hold things
8] Puppies should be well started in their house training, should be crate trained
9] Puppies should be temperment tested and the paperwork should be provided.
10] Puppies should be loved by the breeder and the utmost concern should be given to selling them, many questions should be asked and home visits when ever possible. If that means the breeder hops on a plane to go check the place out then do it, I do.

These are just off the top of my head when I think of more I will add htem but other breeders here can add to them too.

I personally don't like the micro chip or even the tatooing... but besides that, the list looks great.

why not?

it's often the only proof of ownership and sorely needed to return animals to their rightful owner if they were stolen, ran away or got lost otherwise.

don't you want to maximize the chance to get your dog back if you ever lose it or if there's a dispute about who owns it?

would you rather your dog be held at a shelter until someone can get a hold of you to tell you they have your dog, even if it takes a week or two? here in L.A. the shelters only have a mandatory holding period of three business days for dogs picked up without any kind of ID. if the shelter is full and needs to take in more animals, those are the first ones to be euthanized to make room.

Because I don't like the thought of of branding my dog or sticking my baby puppy with a microchip. I just don't.

I think a more simplistic, dare I say humane, way of identifying a dog is doing something quite simple- tags.

I don't trust tags. They can get lost, and mostly they can just be removed. So if someone steals your dog, you won't have any proof that it's yours.

Real simple. Like dogs shouldn't be wearing a collar unless they are going out off the property with their owner. OTHERWISE the collar can get hung up on a car bumper, or anything else that protrudes out and the dog can get hung and choke to death.

i agree that chipping is a better, more permanent and reliable method of ID than tatooing, but it's not any worse than giving the dog a vaccination, so it also involves a lot less pain.

tags can be removed or get lost, a microchip can't.

i find it is a more humane thing if a dog can be identified at any time and returned to the rightful owner instead of possibly being euthanized rather than avoiding a second or two of discomfort when the chip is injected.

No tags, none of my dogs wear tags with their name and my number on, because people steal dogs here and call you and demand huge sums of money for the return, so the pet back protect scheme was invented, the dogs wears a tag with a free phone no on it, if a dog is found the finders call the number and pass on their info to the company, the company then calls the owner and tells them where their dog is, then the owner can go and pick up the dog, its quite expensive but worth it, all my dogs are also microchipped and dna tested. Also if you show your dog you cant leave the collar on (because it marks the fur) so a microchip is the only proof you have that the dog is yours!
