What kind of dog? Big? Small? Guard dog? Pet? Do you have children? Dog to live indoors or in the garden?

The Grand Market and the Pae Mai market (next to the driving range on the canal road) both have breeders selling occasionally, but wherever you buy, make sure your first stop is the vet to have your puppy checked out.

Thank you. Appreciate your help.
We currently have English spaniel, wonderful dog, but he gets to the age of 10. We thinking about dog replacement. Same breed would be nice to have. The overlap time for dogs much easier for the same breed.

With the climate in Hua Hin I am nor sure that long haired dogs are the most suitable - this is the cool period which lasts a month or so and is now halfway through !!

Spaniels are fine, plenty of them around. We have a retriever who lives outside and he has no problems with the heat. Friends of ours have huskies that seem to get by quite comfortably!

If you go to Bangkok, the Chatuchak weekend market is worth a look. Not that we were particularly impressed with the variety of breeds or the conditions.

You could try Google and see if there is a breeder in the general area.

yes, something like Kurtshar (SP?) might be better

depends what you want, I brought 3 big dogs over from the UK in July at a cost of £730 for all 3 with Lufthansa, maybe worth bringing a puppy over from your native country at least then you know what you're getting

Thank you

If you are willing to travel a few kilometers north of Hua-Hin, to Bangkok for example, you will find there are quite a few very reputable breeders in Thailand. I myself have looked into buying a doberman puppy, and I was amazed at the standards of the various breeders. Most of them import champion stock for breeding purposes, and one can actually go online and find proof of the number of international competitions these dogs have won. Local breeders also fly their own dogs overseas to attend shows and etc, so it seems pretty obvious to me that they take things very seriously indeed. Puppies of many breeds can be purchased in Thailand, along with legitimate paperwork. Obviously, you will need to get your wallet out. If you are only willing to spend a few thousand baht, well then as the saying goes....."beggars can't be choosers" :laugh: Then again, a puppy bred from champion stock, together with all the papers, is going to cost you a fair bit in your home country as well.


Not sure about other breeds, but a pedigree doberman puppy will set you back about 35,000 baht. :shock: No wonder I settled for a "Grand Market" rottweiler pup instead. Thankfully, she turned out to be a real gem.


:cheers:


PS: You can also find some really nice puppies being offered on the "Baht and Sold" website. These are usually being sold by Farang/Thai couples rather than actual breeders, so most don't come with papers, but the again, unless you intend showing your dog or using it for breeding, papers serve no purpose really.

When looking for a second Pug I checked the prices of some BKK breeders and the prices were well out of my pocket....50k+. Like Takiab I eventually bought a Grand Market Pug for 5k and he's turned out to be a real gem.
