Default Breeders and websites?

Hello!

A question came across my mind as I was looking for breeders of both cats and dogs. I was just wondering. Will responsible and reputable breeders have websites? As far as the majority of them? Or does it not really matter?

Thanks!

Not all of them also have interest in computers or like to be contacted via email. Many will prefer being contacted by phone. I wouldn't consider this as in indicator in either direction.

Depends honestly, some do have sites, some bad ones has sites. Some people want to go by word of mouth,
or close by area's or only let other showers know about the kittens. Not everyone is in tech stuff.
Could be anything really. Yeah Phone is usually perfered over e-mail.

Why you asking about cats in the: Dog General Discussion? Silly!

I have a website, but it was orginally just a way to share my dogs with friends.

Glad to have helped. I helped some people find dogs from breeders, on the internet, they told me there, goals, price, how far away the pup can be, etc. Then I looked on the net and found them the puppy of there dreams. My aunty wanted a cocker spaniel, shes so cute!! Then helped some other people. Arn't I helpful!? Then I had to look up cocker spaniel names for my aunty, tsk tsk lol.

A lot of ethical breeders have websites.

The difference is that their web sites are generally not all about selling puppies. The main purpose of having a web site for the majority of ethical breeders is to showcase their own dogs and their accomplishments. They'll also post photos and accomplishments of dogs that were bred by them.

They may post a pedigree of a planned litter, but they seldom post sales prices, contracts or shipping information. They will not transact a sale entirely by email. Here is an example of an ethical breeders website. Notice there is mention of a current litter but no purchase details. http://www.bleugras.com/index1.html This breeder is one of the most respected individuals in the breed.

Ethical breeders may also have extremely modest websites containing little more than contact information and a background of their involvement in the breed. Here's a link to an example of a modest website. You'd never guess by looking at it that this breeder is a legend in the breed. http://home.flash.net/~hainholz/

Disclaimer: I have no connection to either of these breeders. They are used only as examples based on reputation and respect throughout the breed community as well as their ongoing contributions to the breed!

Thanks everyone for your comments! Applesmom those links were great examples. It's really hard to find reputable breeders...unfortunatly .

I have found some breeders that explain everything! Shipping, pricing (though they say the pricing depends on the litter, if they are more show qualitiy, they'll be more)

It was just a question that came across me...thanks everyone!
