Important Pet Breeder Terms
The humane treatment of different breeds of pets can require many different practices and knowledge of certain sets of skills. Caring for a kitten, puppy, cat, yorkie, or any other breeds requires some sort of general knowledge of the animal and the terms associated with them. Here are some important pet breeder terms.
Exotic - This can be describing an animal that is not commonly found domestically. It can include, but not limited to, snakes and other reptiles, dachshund, poodles, and possibly cattle. Depending on the area, some pets can be more exotic than others.
Kennel - This can be used to house different pets. When leaving an animal unattended, some pet breeders may choose to keep the animal in a kennel in order to separate them from other animals in the area. This can contain food and water as well as other supplies.
Farm - Some pet breeders will keep more wild animals in a larger, more open area. Horses, cattle, rabbits, and other more agriculture based animals can sometimes be kept on a farm because of size or numbers.
Certification Papers - When breeding certain breeds of animals it might be necessary to keep records of the breeding. Pit Bulls, poodles, yorkies, and other breeds of dog can fetch a better price if proof is provided of their origins as a puppy.
Humane Society - Caring for some animals can be done by the local humane society for a more cost effective form of animal selection. Potential owners can search for quality breeds that are fancy or pure bred and select those who meet their criteria.
Whether looking for adoption or the sale of a puppy or kitten, knowing the terminology can assist in the process. Different forms of pet breeders exist and can help accommodate those who search for specific types of animals.
Most people have seen the face of an adorable puppy or pet looking up at them, or heard the chirp of a bird, and thought what a nice companion that would make for their family. Easter is often a time when many children’s thoughts turn to fluffy bunny rabbits. Very few things bring as much joy to a family as a new puppy or kitten. Many individuals fall in love with a childhood pet, and the love for that animal becomes a passion for continuing the breed. Many times a quick search online will reveal a particular breed of dog or cat, rabbit or bird, available from a local pet breeder.
The classified sections are also a good way to find specific breeds. In many kennels, you will be able to find Yorkie, Dachshund, Pit Bull, Poodle or Husbandry puppies, and trust that you have purchased a quality animal. For those who are not dog people, there are many options available for select cats and kittens as well.
Many pure breeds of pets are available through sale or adoption, from fancy chinchillas to exotic reptiles and snakes. Additionally, the field of agriculture has created the need for husbandries that specialize in large animals such as horses and cattle for farms. Many horses are also bred for shows and as childhood pets. Wild animals living in captivity are also bred to ensure continuation of the species, which is vital for some endangered animals. Many zoos employ wild animal breeders who have specific training and education in a certain species.
