I am a dog breeder that had worked with Puppy Spot for a few years.
while I as a breeder work myself to the bone to produce healthy puppies, ethically, long 18 hour days, sleepless nights, no vaccations, catering to every client request and having no free time for anything, Puppy Spot comes along and makes anywhere from $1000-$2000 per puppy while doing none of the hard work. All they do is advertise and making sales.

They are nothing but a DOG BROKER- "The middle man" making money off of breeders' hard work. Same as a pet store would be- a middle man-only they are high end retail stores that actually have major over head. 
Only the difference is that a pet store actually BUYS the puppies from a breeder and cares for the puppy until sold. Puppyspot a Puppy Broker adds their broker fee to the breeder's asking purchase price and sells the puppy for at least double that.. Heck- it makes pet stores sound great now - Huh? At least you get to "see" the puppy you're buying. Not that I would recommend you do so, as I know first hand that stores buy from puppy mills for like $300 a puppy and sells for like $2000-$3000.

As an ethical dog breeder I charge $1850 for my puppies when you find my business and come to me to buy a puppy. I offer a way better warranty than Puppy Spot will ever offer you. Only at Puppyspot you will be paying about $3800 for the same puppy. WOW! Really? YES! really! Now, I know brokers are out there to make money- but profiting $2000 ON TOP of what the breeder makes is a rip off to anyone buying through a broker. Puppyspot used to be "Buy puppies direct"! How would someone buy "direct" from a broker? what a joke! And absolutely misleading- making people believe they are buying "directly" from the breeder. How far from the truth!?

Now hold on; I have talked to the clients that bought a puppy from Puppyspot and we kept in touch. Guess what else I learned. While I bought the crate out of my own money, Puppyspot "Charged" the buyer for the same crate on their end. They DIDN'T buy the crate. So turns out that buyer is also double paying for the airfare as well. In addition client is also paying for the pre shipping vet exam twice as well. Once to the breeder and once to Puppy spot. Did Puppyspot take the puppy to the vet? No. Then they will be paying for another exam when they get the puppy. Client's expenses do not end at the "purchase fee". Puppy spot is so greedy that they will make double and triple their money on Anything relating to the sale.

I am appalled and so disgusted. Paying $3800 for a puppy will not get you a better puppy than the one costing $1850! In most cases clients come to me personally and get their puppies, seeing where I live and how the dogs are kept. So clients: do your research- Pay less, buy from a reputable breeder, get a better warranty and "see" the dog your buying when you pick it up in person. This is a corrupt company and they have many "sick puppies" complaints. So beware. They claim to not deal with puppy mills but I personally know some very shady breeders that work with Puppyspot and they fit the description of a puppy mill to a T. All this was brought to my attention by clients who wanted to know why I charge so much for the puppy- only to find out that they have more than DOUBLE paid for the puppy that they could have had for half the price. I really felt sorry for those clients and writing on their behalf.
