Selecting a breeder & puppy

Thinking of getting someone a puppy as a present?

Our advice is, DON'T!       And why not?  Read on...

There are many good reasons why giving a puppy as a present may not be such a good idea:

  •  What if you choose a puppy which is not really what the person wanted?  Or what if it turns out they didn't really want a puppy at all?

  •  What if you choose a puppy which develops expensive medical or hereditary problems?

  •  What if you choose a puppy which howls all night and creates problems with the neighbours or council?

  •  What if you give a puppy and the recipient had planned to go away on holidays, or has to go back to work and can't look after and feed a young puppy?

  •  What if the new puppy ends up costing the new owner large amounts of money in vet fees or in medication, equipment, improved fencing etc.?

  •  Will you be able to find the right puppy from a reputable breeder that is just ready to go to a new home on the exact day you want to give it as a present?  Highly unlikely...

  •  A reputable and responsible breeder will not sell a puppy to someone to give as a present, will want to meet the person who will be the owner to make sure the breed will really suit their lifestyle, and often will require them to sign a contract.  So, buying a puppy as a present means that you will have to go to a less reputable source who is not so caring where their puppies go, and with that comes a higher risk of problems.

So, THINK CAREFULLY - Giving a puppy could well end up being an expensive liability to the new owner, will cost them alot more money than you are spending and could also cost your friendship if things go wrong.

A puppy is a living creature and needs to be treated with respect and care for it's entire life, and should not be handed around like a piece of furniture.  A large dog will cost around $1000 a year to maintain, so the purchase price becomes insignificant over the life of the dog.   A good gift?  Not really when you think about it...

So, what's the alternative?

If you want to give a puppy as a present, we recommend strongly that you involve the recipient in choosing the puppy - you may well find out that what they pick is quite different from what you thought they wanted.

Instead of giving a puppy we recommend you give a book on Malamutes, a collar and lead or an AMCV Membership and tell the recipient that you will be buying them the puppy to go with it, but that you need them to come with you to choose the right puppy.
