Okay, firstly I ask that this thread stay a respectful debate from both sides where members can give me their honest opinions. I WANT to see the pro's and con's from BOTH sides. Thanks in advance.
It seems to me there is no middle ground when it comes to breeders/breeding.
You have at one end of the scale those breeders who are registered with the necessary affiliations, whether they are reputable or not. I assume ALL registered breeders show their dogs on the circuit?
At the other end of the scale you have the BYBs who rarely test their dogs for genetic problems, rarely get passes and scores for tests done health-wise, and rarely have a bloody clue what they are doing!
Where is the middle ground? Why can responsible people not become registered and reputable breeders who breed from decent and healthy stock? Why MUST it be assumed that all breedesr should be in the show ring getting titles for their dogs?
Welcoming all comments on this subject. It is one that has been grating at me for probably 15 years!!! Lol.
