While some people choose to buy their dogs from an animal rescue shelter or other means, there is many that feel that they want dogs that come from a dog breeder. There are a lot of people that call themselves a dog breeder, but they’re characteristics when a person is trying to find a legitimate dog breeder. What are those characteristics that a person should look for when looking for a certified dog breeder? For one thing, one should know that Akita breeders should never sell you a mixed breed puppy. Anyone that tries to sell you a mixed breed puppy is out to take your money. The same goes true for any dog breeders that try to sell you a inferior breed or a mixed breed puppy and tries to pass it off as a pure breed.
Another aspect of finding a reputable Akita breeders, is that they’ll let you see the dogs playing in their home environment. As many dog buyers have found out the hard way, when they buy a dog that was raised in abusive or inhumane environments, the dog will have all sorts of physical and emotional issues. To avoid this and to make sure that the dog owner is getting their money’s worth, they should be able to see the dogs playing with each other and they should also be able to look at the father or mother dog, or get lots of information about the father or mother dog. Legitimate Akita breeders will be more than happy to allow you to make an inspection of the breeding environment areas.
Akita breeders are going to make sure that the dogs and the puppies are being reared in a clean and healthy environment. If you see the dogs out in the yard, the yard should look well kept and maintain. It certainly should not be full of dog waste. If the yard looks filthy and uncleaned, then you can only imagine how the dogs are being treated. One should not buy any dogs from a yard that looks unkempt. In addition to this, the dog breeder should not get defensive or hostile when asked to see the breeding area. A reputable dog breeder has nothing to hide and as a matter of fact, they should be coming to you about inspecting the dog areas even before you ask.
You’ll know that you’ve found reputable Akita breeders when they allow you to look at the paperwork that details the history of the dog. A pure bred should have papers about its lineage. A reputable dog breeder shouldn’t get snappy about wanting to find out this information. Also a reputable dog breeder will allow you to interact with the puppy so that you can get a sense of their personality. The Akita breeders especially will understand that you need to get a sense of how dominant your prospective Akita puppies will be.
Akitas are very challenging dogs to maintain, so it’s been a dog owner’s best interest to get a sense if the dog is going to be extremely hostile to it, or if it might be a dog that needs a bit more work.
