Buyer Beware......THIS IS A MUST READ!

THIS PAGE IS A WORK IN PROGRESS---If you have something to add feel free to email me.
I put this page together to help weed out the good and the bad breeders. All to often people buy from a breeder they thought were code of ethics breeders, only to find out they got DOOPED! Here are some things to think about and consider when looking through all these Rottweiler Websites.

ALL OF THIS IS A MATTER OF OPINION. BUT AS I HAVE TRIED TO HELP PEOPLE FIND THE RIGHT BREEDER FOR THE RIGHT PUPPY I AM ALWAYS ASKED "WHAT SHOULD I ASK?"

THINGS TO ASK OR CONSIDER BEFORE YOU BUY!!!

1. WHAT are they breeding for?

Don't let Rottweiler breeders fool you, do some research. WHAT IN THE WORLD ARE THEY DOING BREEDING ROTTWEILERS? I called a breeder one time and asked this question and their response was "to produce pretty pets" WHAT THE HELL!! PRETTY PETS??!?! That should NOT be the goal of a breeder. A breeder should be working towards something....showing, working, obediance, herding, carting etc.. A pretty dog does not constitute a stable dog in temperament, structure, or health.

DO NOT accept everything at the Rottweiler breeders WORD....look them up. Do they have anything that they have shown themselves? Some breeders showed once or twice and call themselves show homes....how active are they? If you can't find the answers to this, then ask them for current show pictures or copies of the Championship titles. If they can't show you, then do not trust them.

This does not mean that a breeder HAS to show to be a good breeder. But try to find out what is motivating them to breed. The motivation should not lead to MONEY. Anyone who tells you they do not breed for money at all is LYING...if that were the case, then why don't they GIVE THE PUPPIES AWAY?

Ballardhaus Rottweilers breeds for the sport of showing first and foremost. The money we make on our puppies support our dog shows, dog food, and helps with importing dogs from Europe. We do NOT live off of our dogs.

2. ROTTWEILER HEALTH IS PRIORITY....ask about the HIPS & HEALTH?

There are a lot of breeders that do NOT x-ray their Rottweilers hips, OR they post on their site FALSE reports. Get educated on how to tell if a dog has had their hips xrayed. You have the power to go to www.offa.org and enter any dogs name in to see if their hips have PASSED. Some Rottweilers hips are done in Europe, that is ok, but verify that they have a copy of the report. ANYONE can post HD/ED Free....that doesnt mean they are.

3. Health Guarantees ~~DONT BE FOOLED BY BOGUS HEALTH GUARANTEES!!!

There are breeders with OUTRAGEOUS health gurantees. Some are for many years3-4-5-6-7+, that sounds great, but what does the guarantee really cover?

When you read them over they really do not cover much. Some breeders require you actually GIVE THE ROTTWEILER BACK to get a replacement. WHO WOULD DO THAT? Some rottweiler breeders REQUIRE you go to a certain vet STATES away for xrays to be covered under contract. This is simply NOT ACCEPTABLE. Some breeders ONLY COVER CRIPPLING HIP DYSPLASIA---so are they basically saying the dog has to be completely crippled before they will cover them?

So before you jump to buy a dog from a breeder with a "wonderful long term health gurantee" READ IT FIRST!!!

GERMAN vs AMERICAN vs EUROPEAN
THE GREAT DEBATE

This has got to be the most common question I get. SO MANY ROTTWEILER BREEDERS play on the words GERMAN ROTTWEILER PUPPIES FOR SALE, GERMAN ROTTWEILERS, ALL GERMAN
When I see this, all I see is BLAH BLAH BLAH! Backyard breeders are great for this. They advertise they have all German lines but their bloodlines are from breeders here in America who have NOT gone back to the German lines in 10+ generations.

Im going to be blunt here. JUST BECAUSE A ROTTWEILER IS BUILT NICE WITH A BIG HEAD AND SHORT MUZZLE DOES NOT MAKE IT GERMAN. THERE ARE HUNDREDS OF AMERICAN BRED ROTTWEILERS WITH AMERICAN LINES THAT ARE GORGEOUS WITH MASSIVE HEADS AND BEAUTIFUL BODIES. US MARSHALL CAHILL IS ONE OF THE BEST AMERICAN ROTTWEILERS IVE SEEN. WWW.BISSCAHILL.COM

The fact is, MOST of the breeders do NOT have GERMAN ROTTWEILERS.

They may LOOK German, but really they are not. They best way to know if a dog is GERMAN is to look at the pedigree. A german rottweiler has an ADRK registry number. If the pedigree does not have a # then visit our Rottweiler Pedigree page to see how you can locate certain dogs in a pedigree. Ask yourself a few questions:
WAS the Rottweiler Puppy BORN in Germany? No? Then it is considered an AMERICAN Rottweiler .
IF a Rottweiler is out of German imported parents then they are considered American Bred Rottweilers with German Bloodlines.

European Rottweilers are rottweilers with a pedigree mixture of German, Serbian, Hungarian, Russian, and so on. This does not make the dog any less of a Rottweiler. A well put together dog usually consists of dogs from all over the country. A lot of German dogs are SOLD to outher countries, then those dogs are bred there and their spawn is considered European because of where they were born.

Some breeders believe that any dog not from German is JUNK. This is simply NOT TRUE. There is JUNK in every country. The same way there is Quality in some American lines and JUNK American lines.

Certain lines are good for certain things. Most Schutzhund people prefer pure German Rottweilers because they are breed to have the temperament for Schutzhund. German Rottweilers with German Rottweiler Pedigrees have to follow a lot of strict rules before they are ever bred and they must be able to work. This is not a bad thing.

PRETTY PUPPIES does NOT mean they will be PRETTY when they get older.

This goes for all Rottweilers. Including my own. Sometimes back yard breeders or puppymills have puppies that are really cute as babies. This does NOT mean they will be nice when they get older. Do not be FOOLED by the look of a pretty puppy. A trained breeder can see the good and bad in ugly and pretty puppies. Some of the best dogs out there started out as an ugly duckling. Ballardhaus Rottweilers has even been guilty of passing up a puppy because it is the "ugly duckling" but that pup always seems to turn out being the prettiest SWAN.

THINGS TO THINK ABOUT

A GOOD ROTTWEILER BREEDER...:

DOES NOT sell their pups to just anyone. They inquire about your life and where their pups are going.

DOES NOT send a puppy home before 7 weeks old. Rottweiler puppies need to be with their littermates for at least the first 7 weeks. BE WARE of breeders sending their puppies home earlier than that.

DOES NOT let you just pick a puppy before 5 weeks old without even know the personality of the puppy or evaluate them for temperament. Just because you think a certain puppy is cute, does not mean it is the right puppy for you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BEWARE of "Buy Now" and "ADD TO CART" buttons under puppy pictures. This is NOT the supermarket or online Rottweiler store where you just add the pup you want to a cart, and BAM there is a puppy on its way.

BEWARE of the websites that pools all the the backyard breeders together and sells their puppies for life time guarantees for an absorbant amount of money. These same breeders advertise those dogs in newspapers for 1/3rd the price those puppy brokers sell them for. If you are not dealing with the breeder DIRECTLY then do NOT DO IT!

ASK for references. Not just recent ones. A lot of people LOVE their breeder when the pups are new in their home. It's the buyers from years ago that matter as well. Check references and also ask for a vet reference if you feel something could be "off". You should be able to get 10+ references very quickly. Keep in mind, references are usually going to talk great about the breeder, but if you are looking to show, call the show references.
