When it is time to start looking for a breeder to get your pet Chihuahua from you want to know what to ask all the prospective breeders you will talk to so you know what kind of breeder you are getting and how well they know their business and how much support they offer new owners. These things are very important so do not be afraid to ask questions as any reputable dealer is expecting a lot of questions especially from a new owner.

A national breeder registry is an organization that sets breeding standards for healthy Chihuahua pups and you want your breeder to be guided by those standards. Ask your breeder what registry they are listed with and ask to see something that shows what registry they are listed with. A good breeder will be more than happy to show you their listing information and take a great deal of pride in it.

A Chihuahua breeder that is worth doing business with understands that the relationship with the owner does not end when the transaction is over. Talk with your breeder about the support and advice they offer after the sale. Your relationship with your breeder will go on for many years after you bring the pup home so if your breeder indicates that they may not offer ongoing consultation then you may want to avoid that breeder.

Probably one of the most important questions about a prospective Chihuahua breeder you will ask will be asked not to the breeder but rather to your vet. If you do not have a vet then establish a relationship with one and discuss the various breeders in the area with your vet to be sure you are dealing with a breeder your vet trusts. A stamp of approval from your vet is extremely important for the future health of your new dog.

As painful as it may be, any good Chihuahua breeder will have a policy where they will take back the pet at any stage of its life if the owner can no longer care for it, to avoid having the dog be abandoned.

It may be a difficult conversation about a situation that you will probably never have to ever use but you can get a good feeling about how dedicated to their craft a breeder is by their policy of taking back an animal rather than having it abandoned. They won’t offer a cash refund but they will offer a second chance to the dog.

Ask a lot of questions of any breeder you are considering. A reputable and good breeder will expect a lot of questions and the tougher questions are not going to hurt a good breeder’s feelings so ask anything you want.

A good breeder will be expecting a lot of questions so don’t think you are doing anything new and many reputable breeders will insist that you ask as many questions as you can think of because to a good breeder a solid relationship with the owner is just as important as any other part of the dog’s life.
