Default What do you say

Has anyone gone to see some pups and thought,, nope to all of them?

If so what did you say to the breeder. Just wondering as I am due to go and see some pups in 2 weeks time but realised from another post I have just done that I may not like any of them.

Do I lie and say I'll let her know coz I am going to see some others or just tell the truth and say none are what I am looking for. The latter may be to embarressing to say.

Just say that you are going to go home and think about it and you'll let her know!

Hearign you say that makes it so obvious.. lol, I even asked my OH adn he said jsut the same thing.

Another question

what do I do if I choose a pup, bring it home when its ready to leave but Jake doesn't get on with it or vice versa... Do breeders offer to take a pup back in this circumstance.

I think Jake will be fine but I just wondered.

OMgoodness...brings back memories...drove over 5 hours to look at a puppy.....she was cute but in no way interested in us...the little boy was but he wasn't for sale...so had to say sorry we'll be in contact for later litters...and it took us about five years later...

I'm sure the breeder would rather you be honest. It wouldn't be good for you or the pup if it's not what you wanted. Trouble is all puppies are far too cute to walk away from

Be prepared for them NOT to get along. It may take weeks to work it out. And, then they may love each other for a couple of months and then be at odds. It's just part of the picture of having two dogs. As they are growing up, there may be conflict. As long as you maintain your position as the pack leader, all will be fine.

I actually had started replying to this earlier with saying just about the same thing. I was SO ready to take Milo back to the breeders when we first brought him home. He constantly ATTACKED Matilda & I was so devistated. I never expected it, especially since they were both only 4 months old. The breeder asked we give them a week & if we still wanted to take him back she'd be happy to. Thank goodness we did - after a couple days they began to get along very well & soon became best of friends! I've since done LOADS of research about dog behavior & Milo has gotten much better with meeting new members of the pack..since he's had lots of practice.

But yes, expect there to be issues...especially for the first couple weeks. But if YOU maintain alpha position & don't show one pup more attention than the other (both will be going through a lot in their doggy lives at the time) things will be fine. And despite when you hear a lot of people say - do not treat the first dog you got first or greet him first. I say mix it up & treat them equally otherwise they let that "authority" go to their heads so to speak. At least that is my experience.

As for what to say if you find the pups aren't what you're looking for - since I'm one to avoid any confrontation of ANY kind...I'd tell her you'll think on it or "talk to your husband" or what not & shoot them an email later on. But I wouldn't recommend doing that. If you are comfortable being up front & honest than by all means do so. But I'm not.

Good luck btw!! I can't wait to hear how it goes....
