    Would these breeders not want to be included on the breeders lists for regional/national breed clubs?

    I contacted one breeder not listed, but after hearing back from her and digging a little...

    I see it as unreasonable request and will not drive 5 hours *one way* just to meet someone for what, an hour for coffee? What a waste of gas. Not so bad if I'm travelling in Michigan where gas is...

    Please explain how it would be easier/faster when the breeders are a minimum of 4.5 hours drive *one way*, with most being 7.5-11 hours drive away. One I've contacted is from across the country.

    Thank you. I will feel better about some of these issues if I can speak to some people who have puppies from some of these breeders, I think.

    I have also had good experiences with kong toys, but my dog isn't particularly hard on his stuff.
  6. Additional questions: Would it be ok to ask...

    Additional questions:

    Would it be ok to ask the breeder for her vet's name and number so I can get a reference from her vet and confirm her dogs are healthy?

    Also, I was going to request...
  7. I didn't directly address your post earlier so I...

    I didn't directly address your post earlier so I do apologize -- I read it and I appreciate your input. To clarify, the deposit "becomes non-refundable once the application is approved".

    I sent...

    You haven't; I'm sorry you feel this way. This whole thing has been pretty mind-blowing for me.

    I'm learning a lot. At first I was totally "I am ABSOLUTELY only going to purchase a puppy from a...

    the fancy ones get crippled, too.

    That's ok. Nothing is guaranteed and if I'm saving $2000-$3000 I can put that towards vet bills in the future.
  11. I love him! What breed is he?

    I love him! What breed is he?
  12. By smaller, I meant breeders that aren't big-time...

    By smaller, I meant breeders that aren't big-time into showing, the ones without numerous ribbons & titles, just decent working dogs. Or even *just* that the puppies can be registered. Even if I...

    So you just sent your money away without anything signed from the seller as to stipulations of the contract, or circumstances that would allow your deposit to be refunded?

    I work in a law...

    How does it keep away tire kickers if it's a refundable deposit?

    What if the health guarantee written on the contract is not what you discussed verbally with the breeder? Or if there are other...

    From the link:

    "7) PLEASE FINISH THE ENCOUNTER WITH ONE BREEDER BEFORE BEGINNING ONE WITH ANOTHER. If you end a conversation with me saying “Well, this just all sounds wonderful, and I’m going to...
  16. This is a breeder I was referred to by someone...

    This is a breeder I was referred to by someone locally and I spoke with her on the phone (not a super lengthy conversation, but I think we kind of covered the basics). She directly emailed me the...

    Another question regarding deposits:

    I'm more than happy to pay a deposit as long as a written sales contract is in place. I've received an application form which indicates a deposit cheque...

    When breeders say they will require references, who do they usually accept as references? Aside from the vet?
  19. Understood. I'd be willing to wait for a litter...

    Understood. I'd be willing to wait for a litter planned for sometime in 2015, but if that's not going to happen, I'll be exploring other options.

    The puppies from the smaller breeders need good...

    shedding and donning. The big parties now usually have porta-potties rented so that no one needs to go into the host's house.

    I'm glad it worked out for you! I'm definitely not interested in waiting 2 years for a puppy, though. I wouldn't start shopping if I wasn't in a position to buy.

    Can you offer any suggestions for the wording of these questions?

    I was thinking this might be a good idea, but I'm now learning that some breeders won't sell you a puppy unless you agree to group training classes.

    I also think it should be ok for women to want to be housewives, and to stay home and raise children.

    Spiders don't really bother me outside, in the barn, or in the garden. I'm getting a lot better about them in the house.

    I used to be really, REALLY bad about spiders in the house -- we lived...
