Then you are a VERY ethical and responsible breeder (as we all know).

Actually they require tatooing or permanent ID if you want a preliminary result posted.

Rest assured, you won't be getting any PMs from me, but the question remains:

Have you had that testing done on your bitch?

You are the poster child for how not to breed your dogs.

I agree with red about what makes a good breeder.

I can only hope to be half as good of a breeder when I eventually do breed ,as red is.

Well, I don't really HAVE a breeding program, since I only have one surviving litter who is almost 10 years old.

Are you commenting on my upcoming plans?

Breeding has changed since I bred .. I never did until I had a waiting list , wanted to extend my line , had a health checked male or female with all OFA and other certifications. I would say I turned down 95 % of females and males wanting to breed. Today , with the dog population raising , I see an explosion of puppys! Never breed a female because they're cute etc.

Reputable breeder is such a loose term these days. Everyone has a different idea on what makes you ethical.

There are some things people said here that would describe me as unethical. While the litter my dog is pregnant with now is my breeder's, I will be starting my own kennel in two years. For one, I don't think both the parents need to be champions to be bred. My dog is not a champion. She has four points towards her championship, and I've been told by a judge that she is BIS quality and breeders that she is Specials quality...She is gorgeous. But she doesn't yet have her championship, and won't until next year. I do think it's important that the dog atleast be pointed, as I like to know that a dog will stand for a judge before I buy a puppy or use a stud, as Belgians can often be difficult in the ring. I also don't think that puppies need to be sold for thousands of dollars. In fact, I wouldn't even buy a puppy for thousands of dollars. For this litter, I get two puppies, and I'm GIVING one of them to a friend of mine. I have several people on my waiting list for her litter in two years that are such great homes I will probably give them a good discount, just as a thankyou for being such a great performance home. It's not a contest to see who can afford the puppies. A rich person can be just as horrible a home as a poor person. Money shouldn't be the main objective in any breeding program. The price is the breeder's perogative, but just because someone sells the puppy for under $1000, it doesn't make them a bad breeder. I will never sell my puppies for over $1000.

I think the dogs should be competed with. Whether or not the dogs are TITLED used to be of importance to me -- however, I've realised that it only matters if the dogs' temperments match up to be bred. A dog's prerequisites really aren't important to me -- in fact, the less working titles a dog has, the better match it is for Visa. She can only be bred to low drive dogs.
The dogs should be screened for any health problems that commonly occur in the breed.
The dogs should be registered and have pedigrees.
The breeder should be involved in rescue.
