I was scheduled to get a pup from a breeder in VA. and she required a home visit. She was going to travel up to me to check us out. I told her she was welcome to come. I am very active in the local Golden Club (past president multiple times among several other board positions), obedience club and field club. By no means "famous" but none the less "known" of. As it turned out do to other circumstances I backed out of the pup and she never did come. Not sure if she was really going too come or not.
I think a lot of breeders who insist on these checks are breeders who either were lied to about the home setups (no fenced yard, additional pets, etc) or know someone that was. If you have been honest with the breeder I see no harm in them visiting you before they allow you to have one of their pups.
