    I have had pure breds dogs now and I will stay this way from now on.
    But there are those who have no interest in these. This could very well come down to the fact that they are free.
    If we're talking about "oodles", they will be hard to get if the puppy mills are forced to close, I'd say. Which might push the prices up even more. Personally, I'd prefer to see some sort of register for breeders of those types of crossbreeds. I know they are not a recognised breed, etc. But it would be better to try and regulate it now because this fad is not going to die out any time soon. A register of recognised breeders (recognised by whom, I do not know though) would allow them to link this to a code of ethic and the usual rules and regulations that breeders of purebreds are bound to.

    That wasn't very well worded...

    Or a system where anyone that wanted to breed say a cross breed would have to apply for a licence or something to be able to do so... probably pretty much what you said! lol

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    yea, i think registering to breed x breeds would be good. The fact is, certain types of crosses are popular so it needs to be regulated. I myself am quite partial to a mutt

    I don't think it matters what two dogs you want to breed - there is a healthy humane way to do it and an ugly painful miserable (for the dogs) way to do it. Same deal with raising chickens and eggs.

    ANKC has some standards. RSPCA have some standards. And most states have animal welfare acts or prevention of cruelty. None of it seems to get enforced reliabley eg if the animals are not dead or dying they get left there with all their heath problems.

    Ever taken notice of the number of older people who had a little mutt on a lead, and who clearly love it, these old dears probably could not afford other than a give away or cheap little bitsa.

    The idea that there are puppy mills out there putting all these designer dogs into the market seems not to be backed up by any statistics, the only puppy mills I know of are breeding pure bred ANKC registered dogs, this is where the bulk of ANKC revenue comes from.

    Some do the Oodle thing for sure but no where near the number you might think from reading various forums.
    Most prosecutions for cruelty where breeding dogs are concerned are registered breeders, not BYB or Oodle breeders, this is probably because so many others slide under the radar because no one is watching them as much as they are the bigger breeders.

    We need some pretty stiff laws about breeding dogs full stop, no need, nor is there any hint in the QLD draft of crossbred breeding being outlawed, nor should there be.
