Hi, I own a couple of acres in the Central West of NSW. I thought to buy a breeding pair of dogs but I'm not sure what breed. I'm an avid dog lover - I cook up their food myself from natural ingredients, I worked for a vet for many years. I thought I might as well get some return for the care and money I put into them by breeding some nice pups.
These are my criteria:
I'm not a keen groomer of dogs, so prefer a lower maintenance dog, although a weekly bath and brushing is fine.
I live within a small village so noisy dogs that are difficult to teach to be quiet won't work.
I'd like a good financial return for my investment so would prefer to breed pups that sell for a good price.
I live with a wide assortment of animals including chooks, cats, other dogs, ducks, etc. I know most dogs need training to live with these animals in peace, and at the moment I have a Jack Russell, an American Staffy and a German Shepherd who share my 'house' yard with these animals very nicely.
Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
