Thread: What Do You Think???

    Default What Do You Think???

    If a DOL member sent you a PM about a local kennel warning you against using it...saying it was a life and death situation...but saying they could not elaborate would you believe them or think it was a little suss???

    I probably would think a bit of both. It would be suss but then I couldn't put my dogs there for fear it wasn't suss.

    I would be ringing the kennel and asking why if I was going to use them. Tell them this happened. It may just be vindictive or it maybe due to a bad experience they had.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    I would have to check with other breeders and owners before I cast a judgment.
    Keep in mind that people hold grudges and if they were done wrong by this kennel then they may be willing to dirty someone elses name.
    On the other hand they could well be telling the truth. I know plenty of places I would not use, so they might just be trying to save you the hassle involved with that breeder. Still check with other people that may know them.

    I would feel a bit like a crazy saying "oh someone on a forum told me not to use your kennel - can you tell me why..."

    I also think that either way the kennel are going to defend themselves. They wont be saying - "oh yes, we are horrible people, that person is right".

    Keep in mind that breeders hold grudges and if dirting someone elses name gets them a sale then some are more than willing to go that way.
    On the other hand they could well be telling the truth. I know plenty of breeders I would not buy off, so they might just be trying to save you the hassle involved with that breeder. Still check with other breeders that may know them, esp. if they show, we are a very small community and everyone just about knows everyone, best of all if they are in the same group or breed.
    Huh? This isnt about a breeder???

    Unless they were prepared to put thier money where their mouth is, I would tell them thanks, but you can't take their warning seriously.

    Perhpas create a thread and ask people if theyhave used that kennel and what they thought of it. Google the name of the kennel and look for anything other write ups about it too.

    Do your homework.
    I did create a thread and has two people say it was a great kennel...others reccomended other kennels to me...my thread was asking about a specific one and others in my area. The DOL member must of seen the thread and PM'd me. They didnt reply in the thread.

    Anyone who can notify you of a bad occurance yet can't elaborate or back up their comments with reasoning and facts - I wouldn't trust.

    Agree with Anne, do your own homework before condemning this kennel on someone's say-so.
