Proper Breeding Practices
A good dog breeder engages in proper breeding practices. These include not breeding a dog too early, ensuring their dogs are tested, healthy, and up to standards for breeding. Plus, their puppies will have the proper paperwork, vaccinations and deworming protocol .
Proper Vet Care
Most professional breeders can use sophisticated veterinary tools before the pups are born, such as ultrasounds to ensure the mother's pregnancy is going smoothly. After birth, the puppies will receive proper care, including deworming and vaccinations to ensure they are perfect for their forever homes.
Some breeds require more grooming than others. Here at JM Kennels, our chosen breeds of Bernedoodles, Bernese mountain dogs, and standard poodles most definitely have hair that needs attention! A sign of a professional dog breeder is how well their dogs' coats, paws, and overall appearance is cared for.
Professional breeders ensure their dogs receive the best of care. Many have a preferred veterinarian that understands their dogs' breed and can offer exceptional and personalized care. Beyond vet care, professional breeders invest in the highest-quality food to ensure proper nutrition, and allow their dogs plenty of room and opportunity for exercise.
Behavior as a Result of Environment
Socialization is huge for pups. In fact, socialization is absolutely critical so that your puppy can be happy and understand the world it's been born into. Puppies are learning the most when they are young, so it's crucial to start socialization in order to teach pups proper social behavior as soon as possible. Professional breeders take this responsibility seriously, and expose your puppy to humans, sights, and sounds for their overall health and well-being.
