The Definition of a Puppy Mill

A Puppy Mill is a substandard source for puppies that places profit above the welfare of its animals. A Puppy Mill is not only inhumane and cruel, but also typically operates in violation of the law or government regulations.

PuppySpot Promises Its Breeders Are NOT Puppy Mills

Buy confidently from PuppySpot knowing:

  • USDA Licensed - Not only is PuppySpot licensed by the USDA (cert. # 22-B-0087), but we require every one of our breeders to be either licensed, or exempt from licensing by the USDA.

  • Proprietary Screening - Above and beyond USDA requirements, PuppySpot mandates a comprehensive, proprietary screening process that all breeders must pass. For that very reason, we accept fewer than 10% of all potential breeder applicants.

  • Regular Check-ins - PuppySpot stays in regular contact with our breeders, monitoring the health of every single puppy throughout the process, culminating with a comprehensive nose-to-tail medical examination by a licensed veterinarian prior to the puppy traveling. We work diligently with the goal of placing healthy puppies into happy homes. To that end, PuppySpot offers a health guarantee with every single puppy we place. We also stay in touch with our customers after the puppy arrives home to make sure the transition goes well.
