You’re correct to want as much info as possible about the breeder. In part, it partly depends on whether you want pet quality or a dog with parents that hunt and/or show where you may want more credentialed pedigreed animals.
Although I went with the later, I was surprised to see that the operation cranked out ~40-60 puppies a year and when I collected mine, the parents weren’t even on site (nor were the breeders/seller, apparently in a separate building and unavailable), rather a kennel manager handed over the pup.
Although a highly credentialed (field competition) breeder in IL, it felt a bit like a ‘cash and carry operation’. Perhaps asking for some names of past customers would be a good idea.
I’m happy with my Vizsla, however, remain somewhat skeptical about an operation that is breeding so many, possibly as many as 8-10 litters a year. That kind of scale must be quite profitable though.
