Long time doggie person here.
Had several doggies from 2 x labradors, 2 x golden retrievers, 2 x cavaluers, 1 × weimaraner and at present 1 x lakeland Patterdale cross.
I am looking to get another weimaraner or a visla in the new year....no hurry. My last 3 dogs have all been rescue dogs, and I now feel I'm in a position to have another puppy. My last weimaraner I was very attached to, and when she was deliberatly run over and killed I took me 2 years to get over her. My terrier at the helped me to get over her but it took a log time for me to come to terms with another dog in the house, we have had her for 4 years now and I would not be without her as she has such a great character!
I live in south beds area and would welcome any info on reputable breeders in the area, I wish to visit the breeders in advance etc as I need to be sure Im Doing the right for myself and the puppy. I have seen many ads in the press etc but am loath to buy from a non breeder. I'm well aware of what I need to do and have done all my homework and one hell of a lot of soulsearching over the last year before even thinking I'm ready.
Again any help and info appreciated.
Your quite right you need to choose the breeder, who will with you choose a puppy from a litter that is likely to be a good match.
Contact the breed clubs for the breed of interest for breeders in your area who should be more than happy tio meet you.
Often initially at a show, and then to arrange a visit at home. this will ideally be when they do not have puppies yet.
Too easy to get side tracked with a litter already on the ground. Breeders prefer to have a waiting list too.
