Puppy buying advice

Puppy viewing

When viewing a puppy do

  • make sure you see mum and puppy together
  • visit your potential new puppy more than once
  • get all your puppies paperwork before going home including vaccinations and ensuring your puppy is microchipped
  • walk away if you are at all unsure
  • report suspicious sellers or breeders
  • take your puppy to your own vet for a health check as soon as possible

Do not

  • meet anywhere that is not the puppies home
  • buy a puppy from anyone who can supply various breeds on demand
  • buy a puppy that looks too young, small or underweight
  • feel pressured to buy a puppy
  • buy a puppy that you suspect has been illegally imported
