As a new owner, you may feel that once you’ve purchased the puppy and brought him home, the breeder has done his or her part and now you’re on your own.
But it is not so!
Even when you buy a new car you are able to contact the manufacturer, the car dealer or someone involved with that purchase. Why would you not want to be able to contact someone that you got your dog from?
We are sure most breeders would rather have you asking them these questions then asking on an online forum or group where you could possibly get the wrong information or too much information.
Responsible breeders care about the puppies and are interested in hearing what’s going on with your no matter if it is good and bad and definitely your breeder will have suggestions and solutions for pretty much everything to do with your new puppy.
After all, we have planned the litter of a specific bloodline and we have raised the pups for the first few weeks of their lives.Because of our experience and care for our buyers we should be your go-to resource when you have questions or problems.
Who is better than the breeder to answer your questions and help you come up with solutions?
Your life may change in such a way that you can no longer keep the dog.
In this case, according to the contract you signed with us it’s essential that you contact us.
Any reputable breeder will be willing to take the puppy back, even in his later years.
If this happens to you, don’t be afraid to call for fear of being judged.
It is our first responsibility to the dog, and we will take the dog back and do everything they can to place him in a new home.
By staying in touch, you’re sharing information that’s very valuable to us.
We will be updated about any temperament, health, or other problems your puppy has, and this will help us in order to make future breeding decisions.
The breeder cares about breeding the healthiest dogs possible, and input from you is important for us.
With this information we can check to see if any other puppies in the litter are experiencing the same health issues and we can look at our breeding program and see if we can trace the issues back which can help determine if maybe the issue is genetic or environmental.
We always try to ask our puppy buyers to let us know about a possible health problem with the dog.
We work closely with a exerienced veterinarian who, in addition to having 2 ridgebacks, knows the breed extremely well and she is always there for us.
Through cooperation and consultation, we will make the best decision for you and your dog.
Sharing is caring!
