How do you start a conversation with a breeder?
Don’t send out a “shotgun” email to every breeder on your list. Don’t begin the conversation with “Do you have any puppies for sale?” Instead, introduce yourself and where you live, explain how you found them (breeder referral, etc.), and ask if they have a few moments to talk to you about berners.
Can you negotiate puppy prices with a breeder?
