Business Name and What it Does
Sandov’s Corporation DBA: Sandov’s English Bulldog is a small corporation established in Riverside California, home to high-quality AKC registered pure-blood English and French Bulldogs. Our mission, first and foremost, is to produce healthy, happy, and beautiful Bulldogs that make great family companions. We strive to produce healthy puppies and are on a never-ending quest to improve our bloodlines and the Bulldog breed as a whole.
Founder’s/Owner’s Story and What Motivated Them to Start the Business
We are Jibbi and Emi Sandov, along with our daughter “Ayelen” and son “Julian”, we are an Argentinian-Ukrainian-Mexican and American family.
We started in this world of Bulldogs in 2013 when we incorporated our first standard English Bulldog “Bella” with the bloodline of Cherokee champions. From there, we have studied the care and genetics of bulldogs, currently specializing in exotic English and French Bulldogs.
Our motivation was to start our own business regardless of our regular jobs, as this type of business is not constant but rather seasonal, we thought we could make a difference.
The beginning was very difficult since we did not know anything about this breed. My husband “Jibbi” used to breed German Shepherds but it is a very different breed and the care was totally different since bulldogs require the hand of man to reproduce puppies. Without human support, bulldogs could not possibly reproduce, much less care for their young at birth, which is why this breed is very delicate and takes a lot of work and dedication to obtain happy and healthy puppies.
A Review of Its Products/Services
We are a corporation established in Riverside, California. We specialize in exotic English and French Bulldog puppies. We perform AI, offer high-quality Stud Services to select candidates, and as a new project, we have launched our collections of “NFTs SandovsEnglishBulldog” (Non-fungible tokens) with our own art of our past digitized bulldog puppies and additionally other NFTs collections using Open AI’s DALL-E 2. You can visit our NFTs collections on OpenSea to see more.
Our dogs are seen by a licensed veterinarian before our puppies are placed in new homes and have a 1-year genetic health guarantee. All puppies are AKC registered and vaccinated.
Our puppies have found their families not only in California but in almost every state in the USA and have even crossed borders going to Europe, UK, and even Egypt! We can say that we have managed to have the trust and support of all our work so that families from other states or countries trust and manage to acquire a new member in their family through us! That makes us enormously proud.
The Challenges The Business/Market is Facing
Reproducing purebred and healthy Bulldogs is not an easy task. Unfortunately, this market has stigmatized breeders as people who only seek to earn money at the expense of the animals, but there are 2 types of breeders and we cannot put them all in the same bag. Respectable and reliable breeders seek to enhance this breed, which is one of the best for family companionship.
There are many challenges in this business due to the number of SCAMS and fake or bad breeders. Also, breeders commonly called backyard breeders, there are those who just want to generate money and do not respect the rules and ethics of bulldog reproduction. The history, testimonials, and continuity in the market of a legitimate breeder make the difference between true and fake or bad breeders.
Being a respectable breeder and working with the customers in any situation that may arise has kept us successful in this select and very demanding market. Above all, seeing our puppies as adults in happy homes and spending time with family, is our greatest gift. Because they are living beings and become one more member of the family of each of our clients.
It is a challenge to continue in this industry since SCAMS are so common and unfortunately, we have had many clients who were victims of scams. That is why we give advice and tips on how NOT to fall into this type of situation, below we want to give you a little explanation “How to Spot Scammers”.
From Sandov’s English Bulldog we want to advise you on how to avoid falling into the hands of scammers! If they offer you a puppy and the price is well below that of the regular price be aware that Bulldogs price ranges (with AKC papers) between $ 2,500 to $ 20,000. (Isabella – Fluffy – Pink – Exotics genes in French Bulldogs $20K and up) The one way not to fall is to ask the breeder to make a short video of the puppy with a sheet written with your name and date next to the puppy, if the breeder is not willing to do it, you can be sure that he does not have the puppy with him and he is a scammer, it is also useless to verbally say the name of the person and date because with today’s technology it is very easy to acquire a video of a puppy online and edit the sound. Our advice, if you suspect that the breeder is not legitimate, is to ask for the video and be sure to speak directly with the breeder. There are many internet pages with breeders that offer puppies very cheap and they have almost no information or growth history of the puppies. That is also a Red Flag. We want in Sandov’s English Bulldog that no one be cheated and to eradicate this common practice in this market of the Bulldogs.
And continuing about the challenges, it has been and continues to be a 24-hour job and even more so when you have litters. There are no holidays, parties, birthdays, etc., because the puppies need our attention 24 hours a day. We also do not skimp on expenses that arise in this business, always obtaining quality products, mainly food, with its vitamins and supplements and of course visits to the Vet and up-to-date vaccinations.
The Opportunities the Business/Market is Facing
The biggest demand we had was when the covid-19 pandemic hit. Most families had to stay home, and the lack of a companion or wanting to keep the kids happy with a pet caused the market to skyrocket and it was very hard not being able to meet all the demands since as breeders we depend exclusively on mother nature for the arrival of heat in our females. This market seems saturated but the real, loyal and trustworthy breeder will stay in it because this business is not for the weak.
We invite our readers to visit our website “Sandov’s English Bulldog / English Bulldog Riverside” which we update every week. We have a “Newsletter” for those who want to subscribe and receive approximately every 15 days or 1 month the latest news that we have at Sandov’s English Bulldog. You can also find the profiles of each puppy from birth to the moment they arrive at their new home in the “See Our past puppies” section. Also, you can check our “FAQ” section.
You can also find us on our social networks where we are very active and you can meet all our past puppies!
You can also visit our “Blog” where we publish tips, ideas, products, and all kinds of information regarding bulldogs or pets.
We consider Bulldogs to be one of the best, loyal, and cuddly companions for a family of all ages.
Through the years we have worked very hard to obtain exotic colors and, most of all, healthy puppies and we were the first to bring the “merle” color in California.
Being a Bulldog breeder is a special job dedicated to a very select and special market where many times those who do not know this circle might think the values that are required today to obtain a healthy and quality bulldog are crazy.
Advice To Others About Business
Being a business owner is not an easy task. Most people think, “I want to be my own boss” but they do not realize that changing the job to being a business owner at the beginning will require you to work not only 8 hours, 5 days a week, but 24/7 hours a day. But everything has its reward if you are patient. Many challenges will come and you will want to throw in the towel, I can assure you, but keep believing that you will succeed if in your mind you are already successful! Believe in your abilities and fight above all things to get your dreams! feel happy and look for your financial freedom, everything is possible!
