I know there's a lot of info out there about when to spay/neuter. I'm constantly researching breeders for when I can FINALLY get a standard poodle of my own. I found one that I love and we've even chatted over email a couple times. She seems great, does the proper health testing, feeds great food, raises her dogs correctly, sells with a limited AKC registration, sells on a contract, keeps in touch with the families she sells to, and has a lifetime health warranty.
The only thing that's strange to me is that she is so adamant that her dogs not be used for breeding (unless she's selling to another breeder and she co-owns the dog, which is special circumstances) that she has the pups spayed/neutered before they leave somewhere between 10-11 weeks. The s/n is included in the price of the puppy. This just seems super young to me but I love everything else about this breeder. What are your thoughts? I only want a boy (when I can finally get a puppy) does it make a difference based on gender?
