I would like to point out. I know an amazing golden breeder near here. All dogs super out going and friendly all finnish quickly in the conf ring (no needing a handler to finnish.. and goldens are competative!) All health tested etc etc.

She lives in the country and the dogs all live normally. None are caged to keep a 'good show coat'. They run in the woods and sleep in the house.

Not all conformation dogs live secluded lives. Many live normal day to day lives just like any other beloved pet.

Does that make them a better candidate to breed and socialize puppies? I have to wonder...........
Beau was gone for months actually. Well, 6 weeks but close enough. Just because they go out with handlers doesn't make them any less loved/well cared for. I missed him of course and was so happy to have him back.

IMO its not that you don't love them (sending them off to handlers) its that often that is what it takes to get them finnished. Not everyone has the time to devote their life to showing their dogs. (including breeders, we all know breeders should NOT be making lots of money breeding, so they have to hold down jobs etc etc)

AON golden Retrievers I think. Her website doesn't work. (lol like she needs one) As she is local I have had a few of her pups in to classes with me. They are great dogs (not for me but really the idea family pet. Active enough to be fun but not more than the people are willing to do, love everyone and look gorgeous too.

I was not suggesting that these dogs aren't loved. It's not something I could do, but I try not to assume what/why other people do. I was referring to Elegy's post to the effect of "if they don't have time to DO something with their dogs, how are they going to have time to breed/socialize pups"

That was the point of my post..........people who "send their dog out" to earn the titles, for time constraints and/or scheduling issues, do they really have the time to breed/socialize their pups then?

As I always say - a dog is a dog is a dog, regardless of breed[s]. As long as it's bred well, health tested, etc., why not? I'd be okay with breeding two total mutts if they were in at least one sport and health/temperament tested, y'know?

Meh. Somewhere I would run like hell from. If they're breeding their dogs while they're puppies themselves, what else are they skimping on?


My impression too. It's one thing to stud out more than once or twice a year, but to breed two of YOUR FEMALES. . .and at the same time no less. Meh, I don't think highly of that.
