Default Bad breeder toy advice?

Ok so I got my last hedgehog from a local breeder that I saw wasn't on the list of breeders on this site and she has quite a large shop. She sells and recomends Wodent Wheels. I have read on here that they are horrible for hedgies and feel like a terrible pet parent for not doing my research before I have one more hedgie and took her wheel away today and am planning on ordering her a CSBW. I guess my question is, why would a breeder recomend something that is dangerous for hedgehogs? Looking through this site I am finding that most everything she told me about hedgehogs was wrong and that I have been an awful mommy. She also sold me the cat balls which I found through here to be unsafe.

Unfortunately these things happen sometimes. There are breeders who suggest things merely to make more money, or she truly thinks that what she is selling is good for the hogs. Don't be so sad though! If you really want to help her, you can bring her to the forums and show her the reviews of all the things she recommended you. Or if its easier, you can download this book written by one of our own mods, LizardGirl and show it to her. Its a great read, and full on great updated modern knowledge of hedgehog care. If you can help her be a better breeder, then more than just one person and future owners can benefit

Here's the link where you can download the free pdf ... index.html

Lots of breeders have been doing the same thing for 15 years or more and I think it never crosses their minds that a lot of things have changed for the better over the years.

oh thanks for the link SquiggyTheHedgie I didn't knew there was a new version.

As for breeder recomending wrong stuff, well I've witnessed that with Litchi's breeder. Many of the things she said we should do was wrong, she was just a bad breeder (heck why did she breed a petstore hedgehog with one "pedegreed' hedgie )
