If done for the right reasons and responsibly then I believe it SHOULD be done. The breeds we see today would diminish if just the BYBS existed. It would be a sad sad day.

Ethical, registered breeding is very right.
BYBing/milling etc are very wrong.

An ethical breeder is preserving a breed and ensuring the safety of it for the future. They are keeping stable, well rounded dogs in existence and improving on what we have now.
Without them, the future of dogs as pets would be a mess.

For those who say its (just plain) wrong... are you in line with Peta's "there should be no pets" philosophy?


Cause if no one bred, there would be no dogs period.

(well maybe feral dogs...)

If all the health checks have been done on the breeding pair, yes go ahead. If you're breeding just to see what it's like, like my niece is, it's wrong.

I agree with whoever said that even 'responsible' breeders breed WAY TOO MUCH often times. How many BIG time breeders got there because of one litter? They are well aware it takes lots of dogs to make that kind of impact. I'd be horrified to see how many dogs they've actually produced. Me thinks it'd be upwards of 1000 puppies.

*is horrified now*

I don't think a breeder who breeds way too much IS responsible. I did not point out all I look at when looking at a breeder but I always look for number of bitches and upcoming litters. I don't like to see a large number of females or more than one litter per year (I know some disagree with that but that's just my preference). I like when they write "we are a small hobby kennel who occasionally have puppies available" or something to that effect.

I will never support 'big time' breeders.

You're right, they are NOT being responsible then.

It really, REALLY depends on the breeder and the dogs but I don't like multiple litters being produced in one year either.

what i really hate is when people have puppies from a mother that is very young, and then about 6 months later, get the dogs pregnant again, because this is NOT fair on the dog. When i buy dogs i always try to avoid buying a puppy from a dog thats just had a litter.

How do you feel about competitive breeders of working dogs who do not health test, but breed strictly for function? Just try to convince a hound breeder that health testing is necessary, but they have done a heck of a job of protecting their bloodlines. I should add that they also cull heavily, for temperament, conformation, health problems, and lack of working ability.

I couldn't do it, but I love these dogs.
