Default Seven Foundations of a Successful Dog Breeder

If you know someone who is thinking of breeding dogs, they might enjoy reading this. There are some good words here about what it means to be a truly successful breeder and there is a lot to think about. Here is a little bit from the article:
Quote:
The breeder's pledge must be to harbor and safeguard the breed. No breed is in perfect shape when the breeder happens upon it and none shall be perfect when they leave. But to leave a breed in better shape than it was when you came upon it is the greatest compliment. To improve type, movement, temperament and health must be the bottom line for every committed breeder.

Such accomplishment takes a long-range plan that is carefully thought through. It requires dedication and purpose. All too often, we are sidetracked by our desire to breed to the latest big winner, and then to the next and the next. Before long the pedigree is a long list of "who's who" that have no relationship to each other, other than they found success in the ring. What is key to learn (and to believe) is success in the ring is not an automatic indication of the dog's true quality. We all wish one indicated the other but that is too easy. It would require the removal of human fallacy to be accomplished!

Well said and a good thread Skunkstripe. It is soooo true, lots of hard work involved also. Warrantys, health certificates, work of whelping good pups, working with them from moment born till they leave. I love it and miss my puppies. Up all night and day when in labor. thanks for share.
