ADVICE FOR THOSE CONSIDERING PURCHASING A BLOODHOUND PUPPY
The Association of Bloodhound Breeders are aware that in recent times, increasing prices and ‘scams’ are becoming commonplace when purchasing puppies, particularly where litters are found online. Prices do vary, and that is to be expected but if you are being asked to pay far over the average then consider your options. Increased price does not guarantee quality or health .During the past 18 months the price of Bloodhound puppies has increased above that which would be normally expected . The website Champdogs shows average prices for the last 20 years . (Please note that the ABB do not necessarily endorse this website, nor any breeders or puppies found on this website, you need to carry out your own checks on any advertisements and the same can be said for any other websites )
We are happy to talk to potential new owners about the breed and strongly recommend that you meet a fully grown hound before considering taking on this challenging breed.
A good breeder will not be offended to be asked lots of questions, - a good breeder will always be willing to take the hound back at any time for whatever reason . You should also expect to be asked a lot of questions. You should always be able to see the bitch with the pups . If something doesnt feel right - don’t, there will be another puppy for you.
The ABB advise that anyone considering a puppy should read the advice on the Kennel club website,
