Conscientious Breeders List

This site does not endorse any particular breeders, but is here to help you learn how to go about looking for the right breeder. Do not be fooled by the number of years a person has been breeding or the look of any kennel. Beware of anyone who does not let you see their kennel or home of meet at least one parent of the puppies you are interested in.   Make sure you ask the right questions, you are asked the right questions, and everything feels right to you.  A good breeder will not pressure you into buying a puppy and beware when you are told there is only one left and you need to decide now.  Doing your homework and taking your time is part of the process which will bring success in the end.

It is also highly recommended you speak to several breeders before buying a puppy.   It is also important that you keep a  written record of your reactions as you learn about the breed and the breeder.  Click on the PDF file below and use the MY BREEDER RECORD to record what you learn about the breed and how you feel about each breeder.
