Hi to all breeders, and a big thankyou for the pups ive been provided with over the years. Having just read lucky ladies saga for her last litter, im no dog breeder.
However, im beginning to consider showing, if i could. And realise your boys must have all their bits to enter.
So, can someone give me a idiots guide on getting a pup. That could one day stud. Never whelp. Girl dogs are not my thing.
Ive read on this site about limited registers, full registers???
I was interested, but bad timing when lucky had a her litter. And from that litter a pup broke their tail, so it would only go on a limited register. I dont understand, as a skeletal injury post birth, would not be passed down genetically. So all of this is double dutch to me. And being on limited register, made him $800 instead of ? but near 2 grand id guess. How does this work?
I would like to:
own a boy dog, that i could show for fun. If he turned out nice, and i could do so responsibly, perhaps put him to stud.
I have owned entire males, and dont have issues with having entire males. None have been reactive due to training, and all very obedient.
I have never shown in Australia, have clearly a poor understanding of breeding and the sire's owners responsibilties.
I have a dog, that was desexed as a condition of us taking him from breeder. But oh my, what a waste of genes this was! The pup they chose to keep is nowhere near as good as mine, according to breeder, its now too late of course. Wouldnt it be nice, if i still had the option of breeder that line further. Whereas my dogs sire has now passed on. The line ends there.
Why is a dog with a broken tail, on a limited register, whatever this is, and why is the price half of what it would be?
thanks in advance for your patient responses to a curious only ever pet owner, never breeder.
