I personally am also a rescuer
But i did go to a breeder recommended by our Vet... I flew to Berlin to get her , paid a fortune , and later found out that her microchip began with the numbers for the country of Romania ...YEP , purchased for 50 Euros from a puppy mill , papers false, passport also a scam, we love her no matter what. I now just go to the US when I want to purchase another dog, its easier , and saves a bit of money. I have imported 3 horses and 1 puppy , not including the 2 dogs and cat I arrived with 9 years ago. This breeder that falsified all the paperwork was a nice woman, even gave me a hand book with the dog and how to care for her . She is a wonderful little dog regardless

I also have two rescue dogs from a charity called Sonnenhunde. They are a reputable charity which bring dogs from Spain to rehome in Germany and Switzerland. Anyone looking for a dog, should consider this charity.

The Swiss Veterinary Office have launched a new website for people thinking of getting a dog abroad

with useful info in a brochure form for any prospective buyers.

Re: How to spot a reputable breeder

Kahwer, as you are also asking about taking on parrots at the same time, I am worried that you might not have fully thought about the responsibilities you are taking on.

This thread has already given plenty of links to the Kennel Club, the SKG as well as it's German counterpart, the VDH - have you read through it?

Are you an experienced Dane owner? If so there is an excellent Dane rescue in Germany fairly close to the border - but i would not recommend this route unless you are already very experienced and are willing to wait until you have first decided on whether or not a parrot is right for you. (Of course dogs and parrots can live together - but it would not be fair to either to bring a puppy and newly acquired bird together.) Bring one into yoru family first, but understand that you must make sure the dog is fully trained and happy in the household, and then make sure the dog can live peacefully with a bird. And then look for a parrot who is happy to live not only with dogs, but specifically wihth your dog, and that your dog can live with this individual parrot.

In your other thread I recommended contacting Mrs D, she has both dogs and a parrot.

---

Also, while the SKN classes are no longer required in Switzerland, you might greatly benefit from taking them anyway, especially the theory course. Most trainers certified when the classes were mandatory still offer them. If you need an English speaking trainer, you could contact EF member CherryTree - she would be a very useful resource as you decide if taking on both a Dane and a parrot at the same time is the right thing for you, or not. Understanding your responsibilities as well as Swiss law is the whole point of the SKN Theory course.
