Visited a breeder in Florida

I was wondering about this - I went to visit a breeder in Florida today who was recommended to me by a very well regarded (by you all) breeder...

She had one older puppy available to be placed to a pet home since she developed some irregularity with her teeth and was not able to show her anymore.

This is where my concern is - when I entered this home, there were about 6 playpens with 2-3 dogs each jumping up and down and barking. It smelled there so you know what...and although the breeder was really nice, I was just not sure ... as this was my first visit. Is that how it usually looks at breeder's home? The little girl she is looking to place had her own little crate...but the rest of the dogs were just going NUTS. Also there were 4 more little dogs outside running around barking at me and jumping up and down.

Hmmm....what do you all think? What is is supposed to look like at the breeder's premises?

the frantic issue may have been just because you were there. My babies will act up if a stanger comes in, especially if I have a mom with babies inside. All the other act if they are protecting the babies. I usually crate everyone if I know someone is coming to see a puppy, so all the Malts that have the run of my home are not happy with that, they want out! That may have accounted for the noise?
Now the smell humm, I clean every day, sometime they go with they get excited, but if you smelled more than that, I would check closer for sure. Look at your puppy. Look for fleas, Look at the cloring for disclored due to unclean hair bottoms. They will poop, but you have too clean it up. If you have too many to clean up after, you may have to many to socialize also.
The noise I know is pretty normal, as they were probably excited to see you.
