We think we have a deal breaker but we want to see what y'all thought. We understand its common to not see the puppies until after 4 weeks to avoid disease but they won't let us see the female or the kennel at all. The breeder states: We are no longer open for public viewing. For years we allowed visitors to come see the puppies and the parents. A few years ago someone carried in a mite that spread through the kennel. We had a tough time getting rid of it. Once it was gone we agreed with our veterinarian’s decision to close our kennel to the public to ensure our puppies have had zero exposure to any type of pathogen or parasite. Thus allowing us to produce very healthy animals. Our kennel is inspected and approved by AKC Is this okay or does this sound off? Also - Does AKC inspect kennels? Thanks in advance for any advice.
