How to Identify Good Pitbull Breeders From Bad Ones?

April 17, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 217

When looking to purchase a dog, it is imperative to only get one from a reputable breeder. This same concept applies with pitbull breeders. There are different kinds of pitbulls. One has to research the variety before purchasing one. This is especially important with speciality type pitbulls such as the blue pitbull, the red nose pitbull and the blue nose pitbull. This is because of the particular genetics that are required in order to breed certain types of pitbulls. As a result there is not a large pool from which breeders can choose when wanting to breed a particular kind.

Some pitbull breeders want to breed as many puppies as they can in order to make money. The unethical pitbull breeders will often breed closely related pitbulls. This can result in different health and behavioural problems for the animals. The most common problem with pitbulls is that they get skin diseases such as mange. Though these are treatable they are inconvenient and can cost a lot of money in terms of treatment. Pitbull breeders that specialise in recessive colouring types of dogs have to be extra careful. This is because it has been shown that the genes that are associated with pigmentation also interact with those that are associated with immune and neurological systems. The effects are that these dogs suffer from nervous conditions as well as immune disorders. For example, blue pitbulls are more likely to suffer from fungal, viral and bacterial infections.

For all of the reasons above it is imperative that people looking to buy a dog from pitbull breeders investigate all of the breeders that they find. You want to get a happy and healthy dog. To get a good and healthy dog one has to buy it from a good breeder. Sometimes in order to investigate breeders one will have to go to where they work. One should pay close attention to how the animals are treated by the breeder. By purchasing an animal from a cruel breeder one keeps him or her in business and they continue to breed these animals and treat them badly. Because of that pitbulls are often used as fighting dogs many pitbull breeders breed this dog for this particular reason. If you come across a breeder that assumes the dog must be aggressive and not a companion, then one should not buy from them.

Those who are prepared to sell the puppies before they are 8 weeks old are just out to make some quick money and so one should question their breeding practices. All puppies must be older than 8 weeks before they are sold. It is also important to ensure that the pitbull breeder does not sell the puppies too cheaply. Those who do did not invest in the breeding of healthy dogs only can offer the dogs cheaply. Also, such pitbull breeders have puppy farms where the animals are abused and mistreated. Most of the animals used to breed spend most of their lives in small cages where they cannot stand. They are poorly fed and even experience physical violence from the breeders. This is another kind of breeder that must be put out of business through boycotts and through reporting to the authorities.

A reasonable price for a pitbull puppy is between $300 and $400. Good breeders, on the other hand, will be able to show pictures or videos of the parents of the puppies, or even have them on the same property were the puppies are kept. These breeders will be familiar with the different traits of the breed and what kind of people and home they are best suited to. They will not just sell their dogs to the first taker. They take an interest in the buyer and their home and lifestyle.
