Default Documentary - BBC - Pedigree Dogs Exposed

Some parts are quite graphic - this is very long but worth the time.

I'm only eight minutes in . . . I want to cry seeing those poor German shepherds hobbling around the ring. What can people be thinking, breeding dogs like that? Don't they see what they're doing to them?

Pretty horrible. I'm studying Canine Eugenics right now and it's interesting and disgusting at the same time.

We all know the obvious breeds for which the breed standard has called for horrible, quality of life deminishing deformaties but there are so many others that people are just completely unaware of.

Humans....we're an awfully selfish species.

a requirement to prove performance before competing in adult classes would go A LONG way toward educating breeders and reducing health issues.

also don't forget the people who underwrite "shows" like this have an agenda which includes the elimination of ALL pet ownership (can you say ingrid newkirk & petaphiles).

It is very sad. I prefer a natural dog anyway.
Some of those poor dogs suffering on there really hurt me to watch!

I completely agree, everyone has an agenda but there are some undeniable's in here and certainly the more I delve into genetics in class, the worse the reality of it looks.

I am a little ways in, and have tp say.... I know little about GSD but... the film of them in the ring, the way they move Give me a working line dog any day!! The boxer broke my heart as well.... thats all so far, back to watching!!

OMG.... They seriously put Ridgebacks to sleep rather than petting them just for no ridge?? I want to cry, when I was breeding JRTs I did have a few born with non correct color, or a bad bite etc. I found them loving pet homes! The idea of putting them to sleep never crossed my mind! Good for the vets who stand up and say they will not put a healthy puppy to sleep!

I've had 3 clients with Cavaliers in just the last year, all with severe "OCD" issues that were completely non-responsive to behavior modification plans (not surprising). Most Vets. don't even know how to deal with this issue as they don't know the actual cause. 2 of the 3 ended up on meds which didn't work and were finally euthanized, the last one I'm sure will end up the same way.

Yes, the Ridgeback issue burns my backside too...
