Looking for a pet? Then, you might like to have a Shiba Inu. There are two ways that you can this do this. One, find a breeder or go to a rescue and pick them  as adult dogs.

The usual thing that happens when people search in a rescue is that they can’t find the right pet that they’re looking for so it always end up in looking for a  breeder. Before anything else, you  need to know a few considerations about Shiba Inu breeders.

Finding a breeder is easy but finding a breeder that will provide you the best dog is very hard. In this article, we will give you different things to consider. These things to consider will let you know the characteristics of a good  breeder. It’s not actually on the Shiba Inu itself, but it is more on what kind of breeder that you are looking for. Of course, two good qualities of a good breeder are that they must possess a good reputation and is very reliable.

A Shiba Inu breeder must not be defensive. He or she must not hide anything from you and he or she may allow you to see the dog that they breed and interact with it. This kind of characteristic can show that the breeder is quite truthful and he or she will not hide anything from you.

The breeder should not have excessive amount of litters per year. The amount of litter will be a guage to see if he is a good breeder. Too much garbage in the kennel may prove to be dangerous to the dogs and if you adopt from this breeder, you may be bringing home a problematic puppy who is prone to diseases.

The breeder should also provide a good contract that protects you as the buyer and them as the sellers. Likewise, the guarantee on the health of the puppy should be in the contract and the clause that you may return the puppy when you are not satisfied can be a neat thing.

Moreover, there are a few breeders that do not like the idea of returning the puppy back to them. But, it is still your right so if they don’t like it, go to another  breeder which is alright with this kind of condition. A breeder with a trait of being reachable at all times and having health certificates which are of NSCA should not be overlooked at. When you find this kind of breeder, adopt aShiba Inu from them because these are the kind of qualifications are very hard to find.

The above mentioned are the good parameters of a  breeder. Moreover, you should also know the bad traits of shiba inu breeders to be avoided. Bad Shiba Inu breeders have a dirty place. If they won’t let you go to your place, then choose another one quickly. Another thing is about the contract. The contract should state how much is the puppy and the different conditions once you buy from them. If the ones mentioned are not stated in the contract, then they are not trustworthy enough so go on and find another Shiba Inu breeder.
