Reputable Scottish Terrier Breeders Have the Best Dogs in Show
Everyone has their own opinion on what type of dog is the best. For us, it’s none other than the adorable Scottish Terriers! Scottish Terriers are loving and highly loyal to their owners, which makes them the perfect companion to have in your home. And when you buy your pup from a world-class Scottish Terrier breeder like Southern Scotties, you know that your new best friend will be the right one for you.
There are many reasons why it is best to buy your Scottie puppy from a reputable breeder than from a shelter or just “some person.” If you are looking to add a Scottish Terrier to your family, be sure that you check out trustworthy breeders first to ensure that you are getting the happiest, healthiest Scottie
Learning Socialization Skills at a Young Age is Very Important
How a Scottie puppy is raised makes a big difference in its behavior. Although Scotties are independent, highly intelligent pups, they are also known to be stubborn and a little territorial. However, with early socialization to people and other dogs, these young pups can learn to share and play well with others.
All of our Scottish Terriers at Southern Scotties have great socialization skills because we provide them a clean & comfortable place to live, plenty of outdoor playtime, and put them through our special puppy socialization program that has shown proven results. We are also very particular with the Scotties that we breed to ensure that no aggressive or ant-social traits are passed down to their litter.
Poorly Bred Scottish Terriers Have a Lot of Health Problems
What makes Scottish Terriers such a popular and recognizable breed is their beautiful fur coating. After all, who could resist their cute little bearded face? A dog’s coat can tell you a lot about the mental and physical health of your furry friend. A healthy dog will have clean and shiny fur with no bald spots or skin irritations. When you buy your puppy from a reputable breeder, you know that your young Scottie will have that healthy, beautiful fur coating that they’re most famous for.
What makes buying or adopting your pup from an unknown or inexperienced breeder a problem is that you run the risk of owning a Scottie with serious health problems and a poor coat that can shorten its lifespan. If you think that buying or adopting a dog from just anyone seems less expensive than one from a reputable Scottie breeder, wait until you get the medical bills!
So How Do You Know Who Is a Reputable Scottish Terrier Breeder?
Your Scottie should come from a registered breeder that follows a strict ethical code to properly breed, preserve, and protect their Scottish Terriers. Be sure to also ask if they are an affiliate of any Scottish Terrier clubs. For example, because Southern Scotties is a world-class breeder of Scottish Terriers, we are a Continental Kennel Club (CKC) registered Scottish Terrier kennel.
A breeder who is personally invested in their dogs and finding them a loving home will be happy to answer your questions and allow you to visit their location. If the breeder that you talk to becomes aggravated or dodgy with your questions, they more than likely care more about getting your money than helping you choose the best Scottie for your home.
