Picking the Right Dog, Breed, Shelter and or Breeder

Quest Litter

These posts are all about raising my purebred Dalmatian puppy Quest. But there are many different routes you can take when getting a new dog.

I searched and interviewed over 40 breeders before I found Linda McSherry at Patch Mountain Dalmatians.

There are so many things a breeder can do to help the puppy develop stronger and better adjusted. Even making sure the mother is taken care of while pregnant can help her deliver puppies who are less anxious and more interested in human companionship and contact.

If you are thinking about getting a puppy or breeding a litter, here are a few links you should check out:

Puppy CultureHands down the BEST DVD I have seen about having and raising puppies. The first 12 weeks of a pups life has a GIGANTIC influence on the dog they will grow up to be. This 3 DVD set is super comprehensive, informative and should be a mandatory watch for anyone even thinking about having or getting a puppy.

What Makes a Good Breeder guide from the Dalmatian Club of America. Great info no matter what breed of dog you want to get.

Questions you should ask when searching for a breeder.

Questions a good breeder should be asking you. If you speak to a breeder and they don’t ask questions like these, that should be a big warning flag. Look for someone who does.

Patch Mountain Dalmatians – I couldn’t really have a list of links without adding Linda’s kennel.
