There have been some concerns lately about the number of people who are breeding dogs where they cannot then register the puppies with the Kennel Club. There will be good reasons for this as the Kennel Club work to a code of ethics to protect dogs. Reasons can include breeding from bitches who are far too young, far too old, have had too many litters, close inbreeding for example brother to sister, and dogs who have been endorsed by their breeder. Endorsement protects the dog from being bred from if it is not suitable through health, condition, conformation, or sometimes if dogs are sold on, and then get into the wrong hands where they will be bred time and time again. Most breeders endorse their puppies, but they are happy to lift this endorsement if they are comfortable that owners are having all the appropriate health checks done and then choosing the best mating for their dog or bitch. Most breeders will be only too glad to advise on these issues and help make the most appropriate mating to match up with your dog’s pedigree, we all had to start somewhere so don’t be frightened to go back to your dog’s breeder for advice.

Most of you reading this will be asking lots of questions before selecting your puppy, but there are still many people who will be attracted to a reduced price or the promise of may be being able to register a puppy at a later date. If you have any uncertainties about a puppy seller please contact us or the ISCGB.
