Make every effort to see the breeders’ facilities in person. We believe you may get a fairly realistic idea of the breeders when you meet them. Here’s how to do it:
- Look for the breeder’s qualities. Are they individuals that care about others and are easy to get along with? Seek out breeders who are concerned about the fate of their pups. It’s best if they give you as much of a hard time as possible!
- Disease Screening and Ethical Considerations. Puppies must be vaccinated, wormed, and vet checked before being sold at the age of 8 weeks. Do breeders test for the hereditary illnesses that are common in TMs?
- Check the facilities. Do they appear to be clean and well-maintained?
- What’s their motivation? You want your puppy’s breeders to be equally concerned with making happy dogs as they are with achieving show ring success.
- Examine the dogs. Are the adult dogs in good health and well-behaved? The health and behavior of your puppy’s parents are the best indicators. If you are unable to see the parents, inquire as to why.
Of course, who you choose as a breeder will be determined by who has puppies available. Our recommendation is clear on this topic. If you have your heart set on a particular breeder’s puppies, be patient. It’s better to wait than to buy a Tibetan Mastiff from someone you don’t know.
Contract Agreements And Payments Processes
Good breeders are meticulous and careful, resulting in minimal paperwork and a great deal of peace of mind. When you pay for your new pup, they will usually ask you to sign a contract stating your obligations and what they expect of you as a responsible TM owner. They ensure the health of your puppy when you buy it in exchange for you taking your puppy to the veterinarian after few days of picking it up, and then spaying or neutering your puppy when the time comes.
Breeders also take extra precautions to ensure that their pets have long-term homes. If you can no longer care for the dog, you must contact them and return it to them, according to their rehoming policies. The most important thing is to understand that each and every dog has a safe, loving home.
Additional fees, like transportation or extra boarding, may appear on your invoice. It’s also common to be charged extra for things like food samples, microchipping, and comfort products such as blankets scented like their mother and siblings.
