When looking to add a puppy to your family, you should look for a responsible breeder. A responsible breeder is dedicated to their chosen breed or maybe two,three or combination of. Breeding is not a "right"; it is a choice and a major responsibility. Successful breeding programs can take years to develop. Breeding dogs is complex, expensive, and demanding when done correctly. Breeding should be backed up by a knowledge of the history of the breed, genetics, the heritable defects commonly found, and strengths and weaknesses of the dogs being bred.
What is a responsible breeder?.
Responsible breeders study the breed to understand what makes a springer a springer. They acquire knowledge in genetics and the hereditary diseases that most commonly affect the breed.
Responsible breeders strive to breed to the standard and make improvements in every generation, planning litters as time, space, and resources allow. Because of this they may not always have puppies available. Puppy buyers may need to be patient and expect to be placed on a waiting list.
Responsible breeders have individuals used for breeding checked for hereditary disorders. At a minimum, this includes hip dysplasia, elbow dysplasia, eye diseases, seizures, and thyroid function. They should have this information on several generations. Even responsible breeders can have problems in their lines, the odds are better that a puppy from a responsible breeder will be a healthier companion than one from a pet shop or puppy mill.
Responsible breeders care for the litter of puppies for as long as it takes to find suitable new homes. They devote long hours to feeding, cleaning, grooming, socializing, housebreaking, and training puppies.
Responsible breeders evaluate puppies and screen potential puppy buyers prior to placing puppies with new owners. They will ask many questions, as you should be asking them. It is more important to match behavior traits, temperament, and personality of the puppy with its new owner than the placement of his markings or an expression in a photograph.
Responsible breeders take lifetime responsibility for all puppies produced. They will provide help and advise on a long-term basis to their puppy buyers. They will also take back a dog and find it a new home where possible.
