Wilhaven - Quality without Compromise!
Finding the right dog for your family should be a thoughtful process.
You are bringing a new family member in that will be with you for 12+ years. ALL puppies are cute!
Finding a breeder that is committed to breeding healthy dogs with great temperaments that fit the standard for the breed should be your goal.
Don’t ever feel pressured to purchase a puppy from a breeder. Be prepared to walk away if anything makes you uncomfortable.
The right puppy will come along from a good breeder and the experience will be great for everyone.
Reputable breeders put their hearts and souls into producing healthy and happy puppies as family companions and performance/show dogs. They research pedigrees, check all of the recommended health concerns for their breed and do their best to insure all of the puppies they raise will live long and happy lives with their new families.
They are there for you for the life of your dog and you should feel comfortable contacting them whenever questions arise.
Reputable breeders sell puppies with a written contract so that the Buyer and the Breeder understand what their responsibilities are for the life of the dog. They should be considered ‘extended family’ for you as you spend many years with your wonderful canine companion.
Bringing a puppy into your home should be a decision based on research, patience and planning.
