    haha thanks guys... so breeder to breeder it would depend.
    You seem very open to help and advice and I only wish all my potential clients were as easy to get info out of as you are
    Thanks! *blushes*

    Regarding working full time- If I could work less or not at all to spend more time with furry friends trust me I would in a second!
    But yeah thats why I got Banj...I had really really wanted a puppy but realised that it wouldnt be fair leaving it at home for so long each day so decided on an older rescue dog. And am very glad I did. Now i dont think I will ever want a puppy over an older dog again! haha

    The deal breaker for a lot of potential buyers is when the breeder asks to visit them at their home. You would be surprised how many people refuse.

    My mum does this with every pet she sells, she wants to know what the peoples house looks like.

    Might sound nosy? Yeah sure, but if you go around to someone house (especially if they already have another dog) you can get a pretty good idea of how that dog will be treated.

    She actually rehomed an adult poodle about a year ago and went to the persons home. It was a small home, all old furniture, looked like they didn't have much money.
    They had a cat that had just racked up nearly $5,000 worth of vet bills, they had no problem handing over the money.
    These people cared more about their animals and family than possessions, that's what I like to see.

    Prince, yet again you are being overly rude for no reason!
    A lot of breeders will not sell to a home where the dogs would be alone for most of the day. AND it does depend greatly on the breed of dog being sold. Some breeds do not handle being alone as well as others and if they were left by themselves for 8 hours a day they would not be happy there. On the other hand there are breeds and indivuals that are fine to be left alone for extended periods of time. DA's comment was more relevant than you seem to realise.

    To me, it all comes down to matching the breed and its needs to the person/family and theirs. Hopefully people do some research before any decision on a breed is taken, thoughts on worst case scenario re money or problems that could occur. A good breeder would know the strength or weaknesses of their particular breed and should have a pretty shrewd idea whether the match would be a good one with the checks and balances they have in place in their criteria of a good home for their pups.

    Sorry again for being rude... I just think there are humans and there are animals called dogs. Where did my post go anyhow I can't see it. Don't tell me it has been deleted. I just think in the 21st century people have forgotten what dogs are and treat them as humans. Where is my bloody post gone? I can't find it

    Prince, instead of again apologising for your rude posts, wouldn't it make more sense to not be so blatently rude, insulting and obnoxious in the first place?

    Your post has been deleted. One by yourself, one by me. If you would actually read the entire page, you are able to quite easily see who has deleted what, and for what reason. Having read through the post you deleted yourself, thanks for that, saved me the trouble of doing it.

    TBH I tend to agree with you regarding your comment that some ppl have forgotten that dogs are dogs, and what that entails. Why don't you tell me HOW you treat your dog like a dog. We'll see how that compares to me, hmmm, seeing as how you seems to have taken my comment to someone else on board and assumed an awful lot. Could be an interesting lesson - for you.

    I love my dogs. They don't lay in front of the heater on a rug in the lounge room, so if thats your love towards your k9 I really cannot compare my love. And I wouldn't quit my job to stay home and watch how my dogs lick their *&%^$ and sniff each others &%^$# all day long like you might. I like dogs as in dogs doing their work. Police dogs catching criminals, guide dogs guiding blind people, life saving dogs saving life. My dogs cannot do any of those above mentioned jobs but I still love them because they love me. I like taking my dogs to dog parks and watch them play with other dogs. I love watching my dogs swim, run and play. If you let them in the house you can expect them to windge and cry when you kick them out in the morning when you go to work.

    Sorry for being rude.. I disagree with the whole sharing an ice cream with the dog inside the house on the bed scene. Dogs a dog.

    There is nothing wrong at all with treating dogs as dogs, that is what they are. Some do like to have them inside for companionship. I do, they help me through my cancer treatments. A balance can be made between outside/inside. It does not automatically follow that they will whinge when outside after being inside. My older female sleeps inside at night, the 2 8 month olds in their pen. I do this also to prevent them packing and wandering. (weare farmers, they are blue heelers, sometimes used with the stock but for me they are pets) Whether people choose inside or outside or a mix it is up to them.

    Works very well here with bulk of time outside and inside when I wish it.

    Being tolerant of other's ways, even though they are not yours would take you a long way.

    You are totally right... The only thing that was bugging me is the comment that he or she wouldn't sell a dog to someone who can't stay home with them all day long. Thats a bit beyond animal love... Thats just stupid...
