I have been perusing the PBD classified and have noticed that some dogs are advertised for a long time, and even after that long time the dog is still available. On the other hand some breeders sell their stock quickly. I know of some one ( not going to post their name ) that breed Czech dogs and were able to sell 20 pups in 2 weeks. Each priced at 2K.
Explanation?

They have customers that want to buy .. nothing about the puppy business makes sense. I stopped trying to make sense of what people will buy .. carbonated beverages are water and sugar with extremely bad health effects yet they fill buyers grocery carts. Most people who buy puppies don't know what they are buying and are ignorant of the costs and commitment required plus in most cases have the typical American " I can't want something I have " mindset. They want a puppy until they get one and then when they get a puppy they go to the next item on their "want" list.

1. Great breeders with excellent stock and ethics.
2. BYBs with dirt cheap prices.
3. BYBs with excellent marketing skills and dirt cheap prices
:-)

I know of a VERY well known "breeder" who breeds dysplastic, un-health tested dogs with horrible nerves and sells pups for $2000. Oh, and has a paid deposit wait list of about 30 people. Doesn't provide health clearances(bc there aren't any), doesn't deworm/vaccinate properly, and doesn't prove workability. Yet still has a ton of people practically throwing money to buy pups from them. Puzzling, I know.

Reputation of seller/breeder, bloodlines of dog, titles, age, price, etc. So many factors.

This lady breeds and title her stock. Many of her stock go to LE .Shes always available for talking and answering questions, does not seem to " push you into the sales corner", and seem quite honest. Shes middle aged W European.

Some 'breeders' do not cull buyers...they sell a pup to whoever throws money their way.
Some 'buyers' are smitten by the pond crossing by 'breeders' and somehow equate the voyage to Holier than native born....

Over here for German buyers it´s about reputation and proof ( either above average working abilities or show results - in some cases both ).
For International buyers it´s mostly about well known kennel names ( never understood that kind of thinking, a puppy out of a certain kennel doesn´t mean anything in case it´s not out of the parents and lines I´m interested in ).

Seems to answer your own question...

On the other hand there was a regular on here who was selling a pup from a well known line for less than 600. The guy seem completely honest and upfront......but did not feel I could buy from him.

Good lines and honest seller doesn't mean dog isn't crap.

Re the original question.


Step number 1.
Spend a lot less time on forums, and train / produce some adult dogs which can be robustly tested. 


Step number 2,
Rather than spending thousands of dollars on the price of a pup, FOCUS on investing many hundreds of hours on the pups environmental conditioning / general confidence building. (long before man work training, if you neglect the first you are most likely training bluff)

Step number 3.
The breeding / purchase of a pup is merely the very first step in a very long and winding road, which is easily wrecked by those who do not have half as much talent, as perhaps the pup potentially has.

Step number 4.
Allow serious prospective purchasers to SERIOUSLY test your adult dogs.
(if you think that merely constitutes a bite on a sleeve or suit, that's probably why your pups aint flying out the door)

Step number 5.
Re reference to the last poster:
CRAP owners have an infinite talent in taking a blank sheet (pup) and transforming that blank canvas into - crap.

When such a young life form is discarded as CRAP, tradesman blaming his tools springs to mind.


I am speaking as a very small training kennel, who ALWAYS has a waiting list for pups, and whose owners are predominantly looking for a pup they can nurture into a specific working role. ( 7/10 this will involve them coming back for bespoke training, following detailed envirnomental/conditioning advice).

 

Step number 6.

Breeder - be selective and strong in who you sell a pup to, the well being off the pup, must always transcend any other factor - if in doubt blow the sale out.
