  1. Prices for breeders rehomed dog

    Thanks for this! I’ll be sure to do the best I can when it comes time to indroduce them (assuming all goes ahead)!
  2. Prices for breeders rehomed dog

    Thanks everyone for the comments, it’s been a great help to me! My husband and I spoke last night and agree that it is reasonable. We’re going to arrange to meet the dog and see what his personality is like. If all goes well then he may soon be apart of our family!

    Great advice, thank you. Our current dog is a cavalier and also a male. I was a bit worried because they are both male but the breeder seems to think it will be fine as the boy she has obviously has been around other males and my boy also spends a lot of time with my mum’s dog who is male so I’m hoping things go smoothly if we do go ahead! My dog is like my actual baby so I’ll be sure to continue the over the top amount of love he gets haha

    You’re right. When I spoke to her I said I’d discuss with my husband and get back to her asap so we won’t um and ah too long. Speaking of him and our dog, do you know what is best to do if we do end up taking this dog from the breeder? I’m assuming we introduce the dogs in an area like a park etc instead of our house. I’ve never introduced another dog to our home before when already having a dog so I’m not sure what is best.

    Yes this is my thoughts Diva. Thanks for your comment. I’ll discuss this all with my partner tonight. I understand their price, they are the best dogs (to me at least!).

    From what the breeder told me, she kept him and his brother but decided she couldn’t keep both and said she just prefers the brother over him so he needs a home. But you’re right, plus he is getting desexed so I guess the pricing does work out. Was just curious what others had to say

    Yes you are very right about that! Thanks for your comment. I’m going to have a good think about it all today and discuss with my partner tonight to see what he thinks. He is the type to not make impulse moves, he needs time to think things over but I really do think this boy could be great for us.

    Thanks for your reply sandgrubber. I understand it’s hard to generalize but based off the information I’ve given above I was hoping that others could tell me if full price (the same as a new puppy) was normal for this dog being rehomed. I am unsure how it works. Maybe some breeders put down the price after 6 months, 12 months, I have no clue but that’s what I was hoping to find out.

    Thanks for your reply. I think I have to agree with you, our dog we already have has a big personality so we really want another dog who will suit him so that’s why I think this dog may be perfect. Maybe we’ll have to meet the dog and see what my partner thinks after that.
  10. Cavalier King Charles

    I think as long as your dog doesn’t develop seperation anxiety (which you will not know until you’ve got the dog) then it should be okay. Personally I wouldn’t leave my dog (a cavalier) for that long but I know he would be okay if I had to for a day. When you first get a puppy, they need company, they need to be taken to the toilet, they need to be fed lunch, etc so unless you’re willing to stay home for the first few weeks then I’d be looking at someone who could stay with them or at least come over once during the day to let out to the toilet and fed them lunch. Maybe you have a friend or a parent that could do this for you while the puppy is very young. Otherwise in my local area there is a company that has doggy daycare which may suit you and they also have people that can come to your house and fed / hang out with your dog and even take them for a walk (when they’re old enough) so that may be a great option for you. I would be looking into one of options on the days you aren’t home. Good luck!
  11. Hi everyone, I’ve recently been in contact with a cavalier king charles breeder. They have a 14 month old male cavalier who needs to be put in a pet home because he is not needed there (too many dogs and a few have to go). According to the breeder he is lovely, has all his health checks, good personality, etc. I just want to get others opinions on prices of dogs being homed at an older age. The breeder is asking full price for this dog, is this normal? I would take him in a heartbeat but my partner is concered about the price and thinks “why wouldn’t we just get a puppy for that price”. Thanks in advance.
  12. Buying a puppy

    Like everyone else is saying, they are probably busy and will eventually get back to you. When did you email them? I emailed a breeder myself on Monday and haven’t heard back yet but I understand that it takes time and as stated above, people are probably scrambling for Christmas puppies so this time of year is busier than usual! Although for us (who have emailed) we can’t wait to hear back and are always checking for replies but for the breeders they have our emails plus a ton more to reply to!

    Thanks for your comment. It’s honest and sensible advice! What are the main issues your dog deals with due to their anxiety and OCD? Our main issue is with food. But we have a good routine down. He gets fed outside and if we were to get another dog they would be completely seperate at that time of day so it wouldn’t effect the other dog. I have thought if we should get another dog or not and I’ll continue to do so and speak with my husband about it but for now like you said, we are just working with our current dog on his issues. We will be back to see his VB again in January so we won’t be doing anything before then! It’s very hard to explain over text / in a forum but our dogs main anxiety issues are when he is outside the house (getting nervous around people and dogs he doesn’t know, getting scared by loud noises, ect). He does bark at birds when at home but overall is a great dog, very loving and playful so I do think another perfectly suited dog will be great.
