INFORMATION FOR PUPPY BUYERS
The club requires and encourages its members to adhere to the code of ethics of Dogs Victoria, that of the SSCV Inc and all the laws relevant to the keeping and breeding of animals. We cannot however guarantee the practices of our members and advise those looking to buy a Shetland Sheepdog to ask their own questions and ensure they are happy with the practices of the individual they are purchasing from.
When looking to buy a Shetland Sheepdog, here are some questions we recommend you ask:
1. What health testing has been done on the puppy and/or parents? (breeding dogs and all puppies being sold must be eye tested by a Veterinary Ophthalmologist - you should ask to site the certificate prior to sale and request a copy be sent home with the puppy/dog)
2. Has the puppy/adult been wormed, vaccinated and microchipped?
3. Where has the puppy/adult been raised?
4. What socialising have they had?
5. Are there any health issues that I should be aware of?
If you have any queries after taking your puppy/dog home or anytime during the life of your pet the first contact should be the breeder. If they are not available then contact the Puppy Sales officer.
