Screens, yes. Places before they are born, nope. You can't grade puppies that are not born. Ethical breeders usually have a waiting list, but puppies generally are not actually selected and placed until about 8 weeks.

An ethicle breeder has all health testing done epecially tests that are specific to the breed.
Have you had the hips, elbows, hearts, and eyes done on your bitch yet?

Define cull?

An eticle breeder charges thousands for a pup.
Nope. Not always. I know many, myself included, who sell puppies for less than $1,000, including show prospects. I have GIVEN puppies to the right homes, and likely will do so again.

An ethicle breeder has a sopa box that they carry with them at all times, and after emergency preaching, their own personal baandwagon comes sliding around the corner like something from the Dukes of Hazzard just in time to rescue the "ethicle breeder."
Do you call educating people who need it standing on a soapbox, and preaching?

Seriously, now that everyone has had ethicle breeder 101, how does this have anything to do when an accident happens???How do you "make up for it??" I will tell you how, as I did.

Be prepared to keep every puppy.
Pay to have an attorney research and draw up binding contracts.
Dont sell the pups, give them to perfect screened homes.
Sell your home and move to acreage to keep your pup s happy and active.
Share your bed every night.
Spay/nueter the parents, and the pups unless you plan on using them for a purpose of show or work.
etc,etc,etc.

The majority of us know what a ethical or responsible breeder is. You see it over and over in each post here.
A responsible breeder will first of all have plans and goals for thier breed
They will spend countless hours researching pedigrees, health clearances, keep updated on new tests.
They will not look to profit but look to better the breed or lines.
They will not have hundreds of dogs but limit themselves to as many as they can care for properly.
They will do health clearances on thier dogs
They will have contracts for thier clients as to not populate the shelters
They are picky about new clients and who buys a pup or dog from them.
They stick to their word and contract. Honesty is the best policy.
They will only breed dogs that compete and have good temperments.

Without getting into specifics and having a post that is too long to even post here this is a good summary. Pretty much the same thing everyone else has said.

EXACTLY...no matter how hard you research a potential buyer, some of them will end up breaking the contract for one reason or another through no fault of the breeder. It doesn't make that breeder unethical, but one of their pups was still put in a shelter (most likely without their knowledge cause the buyer could have changed phone numbers/addresses)
My puppies are chipped with MY INFO before they leave my home, and also ear tattooed.

If one ever lands in a shelter, I will be notified.

Oh yes Red....Avid is a friend of mine. Its a expense but once you get a kit you save money at the vet office.
Kits run $650 depending on which one you get.
Also wanted to add that chipping the pups makes it hard for people to fool you about thier pup not passing a clearance. Nice lil bonus

I don't see anything wrong with breeding pets b/c they are nice or pretty. As long as everyone is healthy, go for it....AND, that the puppies will have a good home to go to or stay in the home they were born into. I do think that there are too many dogs in shelters, but I also believe that a lot of these dogs are in shelters b/c people are too concerned with having the perfect dog by "breed standards" and these shelter dogs are not good enough for them.

What I don't believe in is all this breeding to get the perfect dog so that the owner can win a title and get recognition. This to me is all about greed. And this goes back to my last statement about shelter dogs not being good enough for some....

I'm logging off, won't be back on until tomorrow... I'm sure I'll have a lot to respond to.

I agree with everything said here!


1. Most important to me and SHOULD be to everyone planing to breed
Is full Health testing and pass before being bred because what is the reason for testing if you don't care if your dog/bitch has problems or problems in the lines.

2.Longevity would be my 2 goal
3.Temperament has to have a great temperament
4. If its a working breed the working ability
5.Is Beauty and conformation I don't believe you have to show in conformation to breed as long as you educate yourself and do proper health tests and pass.

OFA requires permanent ID before testing I do believe.

JFrick, you say you see nothing wrong with breeding pets becouse they are nice and pretty.You also say you feel shelter dogs are not good enough for some. Dont you think that a huge part of the problem with unwanted dogs and over population is becouse so many people breed their pets?
