Default Breeding for sports

I know we've had this topic before but what is your opinion about breeding outside the standard on purpose for sports?

Does it change your opinion if the breed in question was originally meant as a working dog or companion dog?

I am talking to more and more people about sports bred papillons. I know of several breeders/people going to breeders specifically for oversized dogs specifically for sports. There is a real market for them, honestly. On one hand it makes me giddy because a 15 lb pap with drive is my ideal for the breed. And I could get that if I wanted. But it's not the show standard and its not the breeds' original purpose.

I also know one agility papillon breeder that is focusing dogs at the upper end of the standard but going for dogs that can show too. Maybe not the highest levels but her dogs champ.
