Dog Breeders

One of the big stories on our local news this morning is the arrest of a dog breeder here in town. At least that is what she was called. “dog breeder” And in reality, from what I saw on the news, it looked more like a puppy mill. 37 dogs not cared for properly. That’s a lot of dogs. They said she was a ‘licensed breeder’ which did little to reassure me.

I’m seriously considering adding a third dog to the two I have and its a HUGE decision. Money, time, etc. Not something you take lightly. 37. Wow.

A third dog to me would mean the beginning of doing some breeding and showing. Something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. So I’ve been doing a little research into what that would entail.
How would I build a good solid kennel? I’m not talking wood and bricks, but bloodlines and bettering a breed.

What is the difference between a back yard breeder, a puppy mill and a dog breeder?

A back yard breeder is someone who has a couple dogs, and has a litter or two a year. They don’t go to shows often, and they don’t try to ‘better the breed’. They just like their dogs, and don’t mind the bit (and after expenses, its really just a bit!) of money the puppies make, and enjoy the entire process.

Did you know I came from the shelter? Its true. Isn't it amazing what people throw away??

Someone who ‘owns a kennel’ does more. Ask them ‘why did you have this litter?’ and they will go off on how they planned the litter, the genetics, what makes This litter special, what they expect from it, how it enhances the breed. They will talk of championships, and heredity. They will proudly show you where their dogs live, in their homes or in a well designed, well maintained kennel. They DO dogs in every fiber of their being.

I came from a back yard breeder. A friend of a friend's dog had a litter.

And then there are puppy mills. Think of a puppy mill like slave labor. Conditions are only as good as they have to be. Dogs are bred every heat cycle, and kept in, at best, cramped, at worst, extremely unhealthy conditions. Puppies raised like this are very hard to house train, and often have mental and physical health issues.
And its mostly just cruel. We don’t like people who are mean to dogs.

Out of all the cats at the shelter, they picked me for their very own!

Anyway – the wonderful people at the shelter (where I got two of my three animals) have stepped in and are now taking good care of these dogs. They too, Do Dogs, with every fiber of their being. And cats. Bless them all.

    This is a nice post. I can’t say enough about the folks at the shelter where I got my dog. They didn’t have much time to do formal training, but they worked on socializing the animals and made sure they were happy and healthy– and I got a great pup out of the deal. Thanks for writing about all the people who Do Dogs right!
