If you are looking for a pit bull puppy then there are a number of very good reasons why it would be better to use an experienced breeder in order to get the right dog for you.
Here is a look at some of the questions to ask and also what the breeder should probably ask you as well.
When you look for blue pit bull puppies for sale there may be several adverts that you have seen and you will almost certainly expect to encounter a specialist breeder who knows all about this particular type of dog.
The American Dog Breeders Association has some general advice on buying a puppy and offers a list of questions that you should ask yourself about dog ownership before you make a purchase. A pit bull breeder will have the welfare of the dog in mind and a bit of friendly interrogation about the surroundings that the dog will be introduced and a bit of background about your dog owning experience should be expected.
Dog breeders are passionate about the breed that they specialize in and there can be a public perception that maybe some breeders are not as friendly towards their customers as they could be, but in fairness to them, they feel they have a duty of care to make sure that the dog is going to the right home, meaning that questions do have to be asked.
Make sure the breed is right for you
Every breed of dog has its own set of individual characteristics as well as unique look. You should make sure that you do a fair amount of homework to ensure that you select the right dog for you and your family.
One of the prime benefits of using a recognized pit bull breeder is that once you have decided that this is the breed of dog that you really want, you can tick a lot of boxes in terms of size, coat, temperament and care requirements if you choose a purebred dog that has a proven and predictable history.
Take the time to get to know other owners who already have the same breed of dog and get to find out as much about a pit bull so that you are ready and well equipped to start the challenge of raising a puppy within your family environment.
A pit bull breeder should encourage you to ask as many questions as you need to and make sure that it is the right breed for you before they agree to sell a puppy to you.
Develop a relationship with your breeder
Another good reason for buying your puppy through a pit bull breeder is that you have the opportunity to not only verify the family history of the dog you want to buy but you also get the opportunity to develop a relationship with the breeder, which is important to both parties.
As a dog owner, it is very helpful to have a go-to person who can answer all your questions and provide some specialist knowledge and support when you need it, and for the dog breeders point of view, they want to know that they have chosen a good home for their puppy and a happy owner will help to enhance their reputation as a good breeder.
The vast majority of breeders are more concerned about the long-term health and welfare of the dogs that they are breeding, than taking a short-term view based on simply making money.
Make the most of the breeder’s passion and expertise and you will stand a good chance of acquiring a healthy puppy that grows up to become a much-loved family pet.
