    Default What to ask the breeder?

    Ok it lots like it's getting serious now, the breeder has indicated that all going well she should have some bulldog pups ready to go by the end of the year

    So question is, while I've still got a bit of time what sort of questions should I be asking the breeder and what's the best format - telephone conversation, face to face, email my questions? thanks,

    Yes I have, we have met at dog shows and exchanged emails, I'm just in the middle of making a list of follow up questions. i've met her dogs they are stunning and both her and her husband are not only members of Dogs SA but hold positions in the British Bulldogs SA association. So have no problems about her being a good breeder.

    If you have already met them at dog shows and exchanged emails, then I wouldn't be sending them a million and one questions via an email.

    Do they know that you are interested in getting one of their pups in the future ?

    If yes - then I would contact them by email or phone and congratulate them on the prospective litter and ask if you could visit. Then when it was face to face - I would be mentioning that you are very interested in getting one of these puppies, that you have been doing a lot of homework and that you have heaps of questions.

    Also ask what information that they would require from you so that you can be considered in getting one of their pups.

    I always take something with me for these visits - cake or something like that - and try not to be too nervous and just be your naturally friendly self !

    Good Luck !

    thanks Riley, Yes she is aware that I definitely want one of the pups and I have already supplied her with my basic details and congratulated her on the prospective litter. I'm hoping to meet up with her again soon at shows and have also said I'm happy to go to her property. I've indicated that i've been doing my homework and have lots of questions. I just wanted to check the forum to see if there are any questions i haven't thought of yet that I should add to my list.

    Another important thing to mention to the breeder is that you don't have your name down with anyone else.

    I think that you will find that by continuing to make contact with the breeder - you are able to form a relationship with them - and generally just in normal conversation - a lot of your questions will be answered !

    Again - Good Luck - and how exciting for you !

    If it were me I would take your list of questions and go and visit her in person. How exciting! Can't wait to see the future puppies!

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    Yes that's what I'm thinking, just wondering if anyone has suggestions for things to ask so I can make sure i've covered everything.

    I hope they didn't fall off their perches when they received 'your million and one questions' !

    Keep up the conversations and contacts with the breeders ! You are doing well !
