    Ah the perils of being a grammar / spelling nazi - I've been there many times, sometimes I just can't contain myself and the person you're "trying to help" is never pleased unless they've specifically asked for help with their grammar and spelling. And then there is the extremely high probability of making a mistake with the written word in pointing one out. Yikes. Planks, eyes, splinters and all that biblical stuff. It's an old problem.

    So back to the topic - how to "educate" a designer breeder who clearly has had many similar previous attempts by disgruntled shelter workers, vet staff, and registered breeders.

    So the reply - there's plenty of good material for use available in the knowledge base for puppy mills on the RSPCA website.

    This breeder's comment about breeding for temperment is open to dispute.

    As is the "rarely found in shelters" - a reputable breeder who cares about their dogs - would take the unwanted dog back (as one Amstaff breeder here has done).

    I'm willing to bet they cannot guarrantee temperment, health or shedding qualities of their dogs and they don't take their puppies back when they don't meet the owners expectations.

    People who buy puppies from pet shops are often uninformed as to the breeding conditions at the source of the puppies or they are deliberately made to feel sorry for the last puppy of the litter to be homed (ie the litters are deliberately split up to encourage this), and that new owner is ill prepared for puppy ownership. They haven't got adequete fencing, they don't know what vet bills they're going to be up for (annual vaccinations, if nothing else}, or what kind of food to feed or how to train a dog to be a well behaved companion.

    I heard my neighbours kids going "Sit Gemma, Sit Gemma" hmm repeating command, saying dog's name after command - duh. Need to say name first or leave it out, and deliver "sit" - with a treat to lure position, so puppy always gets it right - for at least the first 100 times. And then you can start to get intermittant with the treats.

    But there's not a lot I can do at this time.

    And you wouldn't happen to be realted to the kennels Myf was referring to, by any chance?

    This response is completely inappropriate and is not constructive AT ALL. Rather you have deliberately responded in a manner to incite further angst, not just be Myf, but by many members here - myself included.



    Peace out, indeed.

    You are all missing the point. Go on to the RSPCA website and look at dogs who need to to be re-homed. ACA specialise in designer breeds things like Groodles, Labradoodles, Spoodles etc etc etc.... How many of those types of dogs do you see on the RSPCA website, Ummmmmm none! It is a mixture of pure breeds as well as cross breeds. You are quick to say that ACA are breeding muts in an unproffesional way, but cowboys are still present in breeders of purebredsas well, those that are purely in it for the profit not the dogs well being.

    We are all singing the same tune, the only difference is that I am right and you are all wrong. If you you are still pointing the finger at me and calling me a twit, take a look at where your other three fingers are pointing.

    I am by no connection to ACA, however I did buy my Groodle from them. The dog is the perfect dog which cannot be faulted.

    I know where my other fingers are pointing.....

    ... umm bet your mutts breeder didn't give any clear health test papers...... umm i wonder if or what underlying genetic health issues your dog has??????????

    IMO ACA are nothing but fooking scum bag breeders who's only concern is the $$$$$$$$$$$, they have no regards what so ever for the dogs at all, no BYB, puppy farmer do care about dogs welfare.

    Your quick to presume things, but your persumptions could not be further from the point. You are not basing your arguement on anything factual, just a bunch of crap which has no basing. I think who the twit is is becoming more obvious.

    Aussie Floyd, do you know of any singular dogs which ACA has sold which have any health issues? I bet not, you just basing your argument on your imaginery facts. I know plenty of people who have bought designer dogs from them and nobody has any issues. It took me 12 months before I committed to buying a dog asI did plenty of research, but it sounds to me that you are not too bothered by the facts.

    I agree that we have plenty of BYB and puppy farms, b ut when I was searching for a dog, I researched where the dog was comming from and plenty of designer places which were of top standed.

    Go and push your wheelbarrow up another street.

    I am going to gingerly wade into this discussion.

    1. It seems to me that everyone on this forum puts the health and happiness of puppies and dogs first and foremost.
    2. As a result puppy mills make everyone on this forum very unhappy.
    3. Backyard breeders also make forum members unhappy because their motives for breeding could be questionable and this could have a negative impact on the health of the dogs concerned.

    The safe solution to this is to encourage every potential puppy owner to do their research by making sure that:
    A. the puppy and mother are are kept so that they feel comfortable and loved.
    B. both parents are assessed for genetic diseases that could be passed onto the puppies. (this will mean puppy costs more $, but could save you a fortune down the track)
    C. they will be a responsible puppy owner by choosing to have their animal desexed so as to avoid unwanted puppies who end PTS. (this is if they have no intention of breeding)

    My understanding is that pet shops cannot offer any of that, except for discount desexing. The safest option is to have direct contact with the breeder and do lots of research.

    on that point: Is ACA actually a pet shop?

    EDIT: I think I found what I wanted to know at this website: http://www.wheredopuppiescomefrom.com.au/australian-puppy-mills/alv-investigation-into-aca-breeders-breeding-machines/ (keep in mind this is published by Animal Liberation Victoria...not sure how reputable they are, I haven't heard of them before myself.)

    2nd EDIT: Found a Herald Sun article referring to this incident with ACA as a puppy mill. Still not a great reference, it is the HS afterall. I wonder if I can find anything in a real newspaper. http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/vic...-1111114900638

    I think you will find that is because the RSPCa don't use designer names and refer to them as crosses....which is what they are. A beagle x pug, several Lab x, Spaniel x, and a variety of other small crosses there.
