    Default I Think I Have Found My Dalmatian Breeder!

    As some will know/remember, I've been educating myself on Dalmatians for about the last 7 months.
    I feel like im pretty informed now and although I won't consider a real purchase until 11 year old Roly passes, I want to be as prepared as possible.
    This would be the first dog I have ever bought from a breeder, so im not 100% sure what exactly im looking for. If anyone has a spare minute or two, it would be incredibly helpful you could take a look at this possible breeder and tell me what you think.

    I'm not going to show or breed, but most defiately join my dog club and do agility or flyball or obediance or anything really.

    The dogs look like a good combination of brains and beauty/confirmation.

    I note there is a pet owner of theirs on the guest book, perhaps email them and ask them how they have found the breeder and their dogs.

    At this stage I don't think there is much more you can do other than find out what genetic testing needs to be carried out on Dal's and if this breeder complies with the testing or does any additional testing.

    Unless Roly's health is failing that's about all I would do at this stage.

    Maybe find out when/where they are showing and go and see the dogs in the flesh if this is possible. See how they treat their dogs.

    Thanks MAC. Thats very useful.
    I guess you noticed I signed the guestbook under Miffy

    About 8 months ago, Roly started going downhill very very quickly, but in the last 5 months, he's really picked up again. He may last another 2 years! I guess im just keen, I haven't had a puppy in 11 years.

    I started researching for my Setter when my oldest Kelpie (one of two remaining) was 13, she was PTS at 15. During the last year she was very sick and the researching of another dog breed kind of kept me going if you know what I mean.

    After she passed it was only about 6 months and I had my setter because of the research I had done earlier.

    Although I do wish I had not let my husband talk me out of the English Setter.

    Well this breeder does Setters as well. I actually thought that was a little strange, but maybe its just me?

    No it's not strange.

    She has her daughter and son helping so getting around to the two different rings is possible.

    Lots of breeders have more than one breed. Normally they are in the same Group to make life easier but not always.

    I'd love to add a Saluki to my kennel, but I think my hubby would leave home. Plus I want to get really established with the Whippets first.

    I thought the whole financial aspect of breeding and showing would put a fair amount of strain on things, but thats fair enough MAC, I'll take your word!

    Aw Myf, it's high-high impossible to form any opinion from a breeder's website. Talking to them, conversing with them both in person, face to face, via phone or e-mail will give you more of any idea what they are truly like.

    For some obscure reason I shy away from breeders who deal with multiple breeds, myself.
    Are these breeders around your area? Do you have the chance to visit them, then, and check out their dogs in person?

    This was just a breeder I found on DogzOnline.
    When i say 'found my breeder' I don't mean im most definately buying from them, I sorta meant definately somone I will look into, just too clear that up

    They are in Victoria, so I will be able to make a day trek im sure.

    Doesn't matter which breed you have to a degree there is expense in breeding.

    Registration of puppies from one breed to another is the same. It all goes under the same prefix etc so no difference.

    I find most people who have more than one breed have the space to accommodate them.

    My three adult Whippets all come from breeders who have more than one breed but Whippets are their dominant breed now because they are easy to life with, healthy, good whelpers etc.

    Some breeders get into another breed because they marry someone who likes another breed, or in the case of one of my dogs because it was easier for the kids to handle a smaller breed. They get offered a pup to campaign and it turns out a stunner and things progress from there in the case of another one of mine.

    So many different reasons.

    I live with more than one breed.

    I wish I hadn't let my line of Kelpie die out, it's not to say I would want to have as many as I used to, but if I was to have my time over again I would do things differently.
