Information on Picking a breeder of Papillons and Phalenes
Breeders of Papillons and Phalenes are concerned with where their puppies go and what kind of home they will have. So when starting a conversation with a breeder by phone or by email, I personally appreciate all the information you can give to make me feel that you are the right home for a loving pet, agility dog, lap dog, or obedience dog. The more information you share with a breeder the better they feel about the inquiry. The trust is established between you by sharing information. Most people will ask you for a vet reference also.
You should talk about yourself and your family, and ask a lot of questions of the breeder. The more you talk to a breeder the more you will find out also to help you determine if this is the person you would like to work with.
Ask how the mothers and babies are kept. Do they do health checks of all kinds? What do they do for socialization? Do they do the necessary health checks on all the puppies? All of these things are very important and not all breeders take the necessary steps since it's a lot of work and expense. As you talk and get to know them, you should also listen to what they have to say. When they place one of their babies they want it to go to a great home where it will be forever, so they will try to steer you to the pup that best suits your families needs. If they don't care, beware. As a caring breeder, I am not going to tell you to take one of mine if I don't feel it is going to be a good match. I want puppy and buyer to be happy and fit together for it's lifetime. A new owner wants a happy and healthy dog from a reputable breeder of Papillons.
