1. Do your research. It is important to do your homework when looking for a breeder. Browse online databases like Back2Basics or Pedigree Viewer, read Breeders’ Handbook of Dog Breeds, and talk to other dog owners in your area who have puppies or dogs from breeders they trust.
2. Ask around. If you don’t know anyone who has a puppy or dog from a particular breeder, ask family and friends if they know someone reliable. Beware of people who may only want to tell you bad things about the breeders they don’t like – take the time to get feedback from more than one person before making a decision about whether or not to purchase a puppy from that breeder.
3. Meet the breeder in person . If you can’t find anyone willing to recommend the breeders they know, try seeing them in person yourself! Be sure that you feel comfortable with them and their facilities – if not, consider finding another breeder immediately!
Let’s take a closer look…
Here are three examples of quality German Shepherds that may fall into different categories based on these factors:
The WorkingGermanShepherd breeder : This type of German Shepherd is bred for works such as police work, protection duties, search and rescue operations etc. They are typically very active dogs and require regular exercise outdoors. If this is whats important to you then an energetic working breed such as the GS might be what you’re looking for. Overall though, there isn’t any one “best” quality German Shepherd; its all about finding what suits your needs best!
The FamilyFriendlyGermanShepherd breeder : This type of German Shepherd was bred mainly with the intention of being used as family pets. They are usually less active than working dogs but still require plenty of exercise – either through walking or playing games together inside or outside. They make excellent guard dogs and family protectors due to their loyalty and good temperaments, making them great choices if you’re after a breed that’ll get along well with kids and other family members without requiring too much supervision (though they will certainly alert you if anything suspicious goes on!).

Yes, cockatiels can be legally owned in Australia. However, they must meet the Australian import requirements and meet certain safety guidelines. Cockatiels are considered exotic animals and must be imported from an accredited breeder in Canada, New Zealand or Europe, depending on the size of the bird. Thebirdpark.com is a great resource for finding an accredited breeder in your area.
