It’s easy to find somewhere to buy your dog, especially if you’re looking to buy a popular breed like a French bulldog. The problem comes with identifying the reputable French bulldog breeders. At Royal Empire French Bulldogs, we understand that not everyone takes the necessary precautions or follows procedures to ensure they sell healthy puppies to their customers. Whether you buy your French bulldog from us or not, we want to help you know what to look for in a good breeder.
Encourages you to meet their dogs
You should have an opportunity to meet the parents of your puppy. You can learn about potential traits that could be passed to your puppy, like temperament, physical characteristics, and more. Proceed with caution if a breeder doesn’t let you meet the parents before breeding because there could be something about the dogs they’re not willing to show you ahead of time.
Will show where puppies are raised
It can be a challenge keeping a space where puppies spend the first few weeks of their lives clean, but good breeders care about the living space of their puppies. Ask to see where the pups will be raised before you come to get it, so you can see what kind of care they provide. Someone willing to show you the living space for their puppies takes pride in their ability to provide a clean and healthy environment for your puppy before you take it home.
They will vet you
Breeders should care about the homes their puppies go to. Those who are simply in the business to make money rather than build a strong community of French bulldog owners won’t take the time to vet buyers. It’s not uncommon for breeders to sell their puppies commercially so they can ship them out and bring in the next litter. Reputable breeders will never do this and will make sure their pups are going to a good home that will make sure the dog is well taken care of. Don't be caught off guard if you're asked to fill out an application before getting on a waiting list for a puppy.
Provides medical history
Reputable French bulldog breeders understand how important it is to provide customers with a healthy puppy. A comprehensive medical history and pedigree of the parents is a great way to give you the peace of mind that you want when buying a dog. You shouldn’t have to press the breeder to get a medical history. If you do, there could be something in either of their dogs’ histories they don’t want you to see.
Willing to wait to send puppies home
It would be easy for a breeder to clear out each litter of puppies as they come so they can easily move on to the next. It usually takes at least eight weeks for puppies to fully wean off their mom. Waiting 12 weeks to bring a puppy home isn’t unusual either, as the puppy needs to be able to independently eat solid food for at least five days before going to its new home. If your breeder is willing to cut that time short before sending your puppy home, look elsewhere.
Have a website or social media
It might seem like a small thing to consider, but the most reputable businesses these days have websites, and it’s no different with a French bulldog breeder. Even if they don’t have a website, the breeder should have social media. Both places allow breeders to showcase their dams and sires as well as new litters, so prospective customers like you can see them.
