What to Look for in a Reputable Breeder. Part 5

Knowledge. I know that everyone has to start somewhere. I was once a “newbie” but I believe every breeder should have basic knowledge of your breed, structure, coat, temperament, care, etc. BEFORE breeding a litter. If you are having to reach out to other breeders and ask basic questions about the puppies you are looking at then you may want to reconsider that breeder. I can guarantee you if I don’t know the answer to someone’s question I will be doing research to learn and coming back to them with an answer. There are SO many online classes in this day and time where you can learn about puppy development, genetics, temperament, the list goes on. This is definitely a career that requires continued learning. I live by the saying “Know Better, Do Better” and hope that I display that as I improve upon my breeding program with the knowledge that I do learn.
