From the desk of Sharda Baker.
Hi and welcome everyone!
This is Sharda with another Poodle dogs newsletter.
This time we will be discussing the concept of Poodle for sale notices and how to distinguish those to avoid and those to purchase.
It can be a little confusing when it comes to purchasing a Poodle puppy from a Poodle for sale ad – should you go for it or not?
This quick guide will help you to make sure that you are buying only off reputable breeders and avoid backyard breeders like the plague.
WHY THE POODLE FOR SALE AD?
It is a fact that anyone can place a Poodle for sale ad on the Internet or in local newspapers today.
As a result of the demand for Poodle puppies, this unfortunately has left the dog breeding industry open to dog breeders that have no care for the dogs at all, only the money they can make.
Many that place a Poodle for sale ad will keep their dogs in cramped and dirty conditions, will not pay for health checks and will happily sell the dogs on to whoever wants them.
This is neither ethical nor right in any sense so you need to avoid those people by choosing the best breeders around.
Those that attend dog shows and offer full tours of kennels for you to inspect them are more likely to be reputable, but how can you find them.
REGISTRATIONS AND REPUTATIONS
There are two ways to tell the better Poodle for sale ads from the ones that you should avoid – reputations and registrations.
Those reputable dog breeders offering a Poodle for sale can offer recommendations from previous customers and individuals in the industry as well as proof of registrations that state they belong to bodies and groups for the ethical breeding of Poodles.
For example, the American Kennel Club is one such body.
You should never take these registrations at face value though – always double check just in case such certification and papers have been fabricated because ruthless and unethical breeders will stop at nothing to sell their poorly bred dogs on without health checks and proper paperwork.
Checking on the Internet via a search will also help because you will be able to find any complaints made against individual breeders on there.
LOOKING FOR HELP
If you need any further help at all in this area then you should go straight to the American Kennel Club. They list reputable breeders on the site and often feature Poodle for sale ads for healthy puppies in kennels owned by dog breeders that care for their dogs and not about making a quick buck.
They can offer recommendations and give you information that I cannot squeeze into this newsletter at the present time.
As experts that care about the breeds greatly, they will only offer you valid help and advice instead of confusing you, as many of the articles on the topic would.
So there you have it – when to avoid Poodle for sale ads and when to take full advantage of them.
It is very difficult to spot a bad breeder from a good one if you have little experience in the area but when you know what to look for you will soon find that it is easy to notice the tell tale signs.
Well, until the next time people, thanks once again for taking the time to read my ramblings.
All the best and take care
