Most of the world is experiencing the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic and the spread of COVID-19 forced millions to go into isolation and shut businesses down in some areas.
If you are in quarantine and are looking for a dog companion, keep reading to find how you can find a Cavoodle for sale in isolation.
Finding a Registered Breeder
Ideally, you will want to get a Cavoodle puppy from a registered breeder. Registered breeders must comply with a set of rules, codes of conduct and best practices that ensure the dogs are well taken care of.
Registered breeders are approved by the government to operate, so you know that they have passed on several audits, and your Cavoodle will come from healthy parents.
An excellent place to look for registered breeders is the Australian National Kennel Council.
Visiting the breeder
First, you need to be aware of any regulations in your area related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Since restrictions are constantly changing, you should check the current measures in place before you decide to visit a seller.
The recommendation is that you make the initial contact by phone or over the internet (using an email, contact form, Facebook or other online messaging tools).
Check with the breeder what their procedure is to buy a puppy at the moment and if there is any paperwork that can be done in advance.
How To Find A Cavoodle For Sale In Isolation
It can sound simple but it’s always a good idea to start your search using online search engines such as Google or Bing. Use keywords like “Cavoodles for sale” or “Cavoodle breeder” to start with, and narrow it down by adding your location to the search. This will help the search engine find the best sellers within your area or close by.
Bare in mind that most of the work will be done online while you are in isolation. Ensure you have a reliable internet connection that will allow you to browse through multiple websites and get in touch with sellers.
Be Aware Of Scammers
Scammers will try to take advantage of a critical situation, like the pandemic we are going through in 2020, or people going through difficult times to make money illegally. It’s easy to fall prey to a scammer because they will look like they have the exact solution you need.
Be aware of any suspicious conduct or prices that are too low when compared to other breeders. When in doubt, make sure to ask all the questions you might have about the litter and their parents, as well as the health condition of the dogs. Ask for pictures of the Cavoodles and of the kennel.
Scammers will give you excuses or provide false information to convince you, so don’t be afraid to question or do your own research about the seller.
