Fake Beagle Breeders
The time has come to bring a little beagle dog into your family and you have decided that you want to deal with a beagle breeder so that you know what you are getting. However, like any other industry, there are fake beagle breeders out there that are trying to scam you. You want to make sure you avoid a fake beagle breeder or else you may get an unhealthy pet that could rack up huge vet bills and cause you and your family to make difficult decisions.
A sure fire way to weed out the fake beagle breeders from the legitimate ones is to ask about free pet insurance for after you bring your beagle home. Legitimate breeders are offered free pet insurance to give to buyers that affords coverage for six weeks after the sale in the hopes that you will extend the insurance after the six weeks is up. If your breeder is not willing to give you signed proof of insurance, or if you check out the insurance and it is not valid, you probably have a fake breeder.
Your relationship, and contact, with your beagle breeder is an ongoing thing that does not stop just because you took the beagle home. A legitimate breeder will be available for any beagle owner to answer questions and offer any advice you may need. If you are having a hard time getting your breeder on the phone, or they won’t answer any questions for you, then the chances are you have a fake breeder.
For first time beagle owners the beagle breeders are an invaluable resource for finding out the correct care and feeding instructions for your new beagle. The legitimate breeders build their business based on their reputation and it is important for them to be helpful. The good breeders will send home samples of food that should be fed to your new beagle so that you know what you are supposed to be feeding your dog. If your breeder is not offering any care or feeding instructions then you probably have a fake breeder.
A reputation for being professional, helpful, knowledgeable, and accessible is everything to the business of a beagle breeder along with providing quality pets. You should always be able to stay in touch with a legitimate breeder and if you find that you cannot keep your beagle later in its life then a good breeder will take the dog back but without giving you a refund for your purchase price. At least you will know that your beagle will be taken care of. A fake breeder will not offer that service.
The National Kennel Club is the standard by which all legitimate breeders adhere to and you should always buy your beagles only from those breeders in good standing with the National Kennel Club. If you find yourself in a position where a fake breeder has scammed you, about all you can do it sue in court for your purchase price refunded. Always use the National Kennel Club to find good breeders in your area.
