Do You Want To Know What A Dog Factory Is?



Reading time: 1 minute

A dog factory? Does that really exist? How could that be possible?

A dog factory is also known as a puppy mill or a puppy farm. As the names suggest, the focus is on producing as many dogs as possible.

What exactly is a dog factory?

A dog factory or a puppy mill is a dog breeder who has one main objective: selling dogs for profit.

  • They do not care about the health or well-being of the dogs or the breed in general
  • They are trying to get their parent dogs to reproduce puppies as quickly as possible
  • The conditions in which they are breeding the dogs are usually very poor
  • The socialization period required when a dog is a puppy is usually neglected and sometimes completely skipped

As you can see, they take short-cuts that can be detrimental to the dog and it’s health in the long run. Since they are trying to reproduce dogs as quickly as possible and sell them for a profit, they really do not care about what happens to the dogs in the long-run.

How do you make sure you don’t buy your puppy from a dog factory or puppy mill?

Here are some things to watch out for:

  1. They have numerous dog breeds for sale as they are only breeding for profit and are not interested in the well-being of any of the breeds
  2. They will not let you see the parents of the puppy
  3. They may want to meet up in a public place instead of allowing you to visit their kennel and seeing where as well as the conditions in which the parents and puppies live
  4. No paperwork is available or provided
  5. No vaccinations have been completed

Be aware and educated about responsible breeding practices. Here are some tips on how to identify a responsible dog breeder.
