Westie Puppies For Sale - 7 Important Questions To Ask Your West Highland Terrier Breeder
Let's say you've made up your mind on the breed you want, which is a cute westie puppies for sale. The next step to take is finding a responsible breeder. You can do that from the parent club website or even at a Westie show. Local club Breeder Referral Officers may be able to help you find a breeder in your area. Find out if they are AKC registered or whatever association is relevant for your country.
Responsible breeders always breed to improve the health of the breed, not just to create a product for re-sale. They know their stock, study pedigrees and do extensive health screening. They will kindly answer your questions and help you with a lot of advice and useful information.
You should visit in person the facilities where the puppy or pups were raised, as this will play a role in the future health and personality of your Westie. You should also see at least one of the parents and some of the littermates.
A responsible breeder should also provide a contract with health guarantees and papers for registering your puppy. Breeders of West Highland Terriers can be found worldwide; from USA, Canada, UK, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. From states such as Carolina, Kentucky and Tennessee.
A growing list of breeders can be found at the forum at: http://www.crazyaboutwesties.com/forum/index.php
Breeders strive to produce happy and healthy puppies, which are destined for placement in special, loving homes. Puppies are typically vet checked twice before placement into a new home. Breeders' expertise enables them to avoid skin disorders and any other genetic problems in their lines. They can also instruct you on the dos and don'ts with your Westie.
Worst choices when buying a Westie are Westie hops or dealers, as they usually look for a high profit and invest little in the actual breeding and care of the puppies. Also avoid backyard breeders whose only goal is to produce puppies and sell them quickly.
7 Important QUESTIONS TO ASK A BREEDER
To make sure they are reliable, you should ask the breeders
· About checks done for hereditary diseases
· Health guarantee against them and what that covers
· Any refunds for a puppy you've chosen
· Getting a puppy pack and information booklet
· The right food for your Westie
· Stripping or clipping Westies' coats, related costs and frequency
Honest breeders will have no problem answering your questions, but if you feel they are trying to avoid your questions, thank them for their time and look elsewhere. A good breeder has nothing to hide from you.
