I was searching the internet to find top labrador kennel in the world ?

I was searching the internet to find top labrador kennel in the world and my hunt finished with Rocheby Kennel U.K. With partnership with my friend Mr. K.K Singh we decided to pick a pair of puppies and ring Rocheby. A woman/girl named Julie recieved the call and asked us to get an appointment first by application via fax. Then she told madam won't send her puppies to India you have to come to pickup but get an appointment first. I tried to fax but didn't get recieve tone. And further more call disconnected. Happened same as told by one of my breeder friend. How come this? Is India too bad for Imported dogs and dog scenario? Or there still difference of white skin supremacy?

Basic issue is medical facility here. second they still treat India as slave. Third. Bad expperience from Indian buyers.

So best way to get dogs from UK is to get it imported to Europe and then get to India. Most good breeders abroad would like buyers to personally pick the pup up

Thanks for your reply Anil. But they won't even accept application of appointment. Very sad thing. Neverminded, this shows we must have to raise our labradors/other dog standards to match european/american breeders.

I agree with Anil, but there is more to it. And please no racial bit, as its not true.

The problem with our country is that we have so many puppy mills and most breeders are in it for money and that is it. Dogs are kept in horrible conditions and I guess they are disposed off as soon as their show and breeding career is over. This does not mean that there are no good breeders, but the numbers are very little or just a handful compared to the others. There are very few who really are interested in the betterment of the breed. Most people selling dogs dont even see if the person buying the pup will be able to take care of the pup or whether or not that breed is suited for the new owner. hence a lot of abandoned pedigree dogs.

Due to the above reasons, and movies like the one made by Anil Kapoor with kids I am forgetting the name the world has a very mixed opinion or may be bad opinion about India. Also keep in mind that the screening process by these breeder are not just for overseas buyers like you but for people in their own country too, so that the pup goes to the right home and is well taken care off. The puppy application can even ask for pictures of your family and house etc.These breeders are very busy and have a long waiting list as they have the best dogs and why not, hence they have to scan all buyers and choose the right one. Its like looking for a match for your son or daughter. If you understand what I mean.

You would have to build a relationship with them and even visit them a couple of times before they might even consider selling one of their pups to you. This is the case will all good breeders around the world. According to me it makes sense too.

All The Best

Agree with you Mr. Dinkar. India's dog breeding scenario is not upto the mark due to backyard breeders, puppy millers.
I also agree with you about few good breeder word. I would like to say not few but hardly 10-12 breeders across the country.
Topmost are :
Mr. Anil Tiwary
Mr. Koccher
Mr. Sanjeev Sura
Mr. Shrinivas
Mr. Bhim Singh
Mr. Gulati
Mr. Dinkar
Mr. Vaid and some more.
In some feb or march issue of IKG I had seen advertisement of french mastiff where the dog is tied on some field or tree. Very dissapoint thing. Also seen , a bullmastiff tied to tree . Though they won shows but are they deserve such life? Are they only intended as medal/shield/certificate careears only?
I think its a big issue to discuss but not only 1 reason why many reputable european breeders just cut the phone off by only listening the caller is from India.

European,US Uk have more millers than India. We are far better than them in % of millers.
Good breeders wish to be in contact with the new pup owners and update about the wellbeing etc which is rare here. also India is still projected as a backward place of beggars ,snake charmers and elephants by media and movies. hence the image of India is like this. but if a breeder who has visited India surely wanna send pups here. You got to educate them

Thanks Anil to clear up the scene here.
I want to also tell about the fact and standards also.
When importing my Bullmastiffs from Opalguard/Powerbulmas kennel Australia , I was asked about 20-25 questions like how will i manage the puppy , do i have fenced yard or not , iam a first time puppy owner or not , how i intended to bring the puppy up and so on , this way they judge the buyer that he/she is able to take care of puppy or not or not resulted to resell or abandon the puppy , This thing is very few in India and practised by very very low number of breeders.
Maximum breeders only enquire 3 things - Where you stay. Air fare and puppy price. Also many breeders breed very frequently and early led to weak/low quality puppy. Some send puppies to new owners at only 30 days +. Thus when these things will be stopped we will achieved the standards of european breeders.

I do not know much about impoerting dogs. But, I know a breeder who has successfully imported many mastiffs, rough collie, labs and malamute from UK. He is Dr Sangwan. You may see his profile on this site only. He may be of help to you and answer your questions.

Hi,
I have bought my lab from the same lady, the reason she won't sell is she doesn't like selling a puppy over a phone. she needs a personal touch with her buyers to see if they are upto it. example of Indian breeder who I came across, my first lab - the breeder said take the puppy immediately after he opens the eye. When my boy was 2 months old I wanted him to be socialized with dogs so I asked the breeder, he said that will cause behavior problems.. what a moron that guy was. we still love our puppy he is more naughty, pretty aggressive, has bit me like 15 times, we never hit him, we have scares in our legs and hands, we never even thought of giving him away. he is perfectly trained he is very obedient until he gets aggressive no one really knows why he does that my first lab is like a pit bull attacks the owner pretty often due to lack of proper breeding more labs in India these days are not Labs by heart anymore be warned buy from a reputed Breeder . My second lab is like what a lab really should be.

Dinkar is right most of the people in India (this does not mean all of india) breed, import, or buy dog not to keep as companion, friends, pets etc.. their intention of keeping pets is mainly becaused of money, they plan to make more income nothing else this made the dog lover or pet lovers look bad not only in the country but also the foreign country this made difficult for you to import also but i also suggest you must prove yourself or make friends first to them this will make a difference you know friends can help you....
