Beware of buying puppies produced by puppy mills, “backyard breeders” and breeders offering many breeds. These businesses produce a large number of dogs so human contact is severely limited. The resulting puppies are not socialized. Puppy mills are often the source of dogs sold through pet shops. They usually do not screen for health problems and will be unable to produce health clearances for their breeding stock.
Always visit the breeder before buying the puppy. Make sure the mother is on the premises and available for you to see. Confirm the Canadian Kennel Club registration of the parents and the puppy you are about to purchase. It is against the law for a breeder to sell an unregistered dog as purebred or to offer one at a lower price without registration papers.
For more information about choosing a purebred dog, visit the Canadian Kennel Club website.
