Ok, this is the first time i actually was going to look in the breeders corner. And i`m not a breeder or nothing. But not trying to be mean at ALL. But i was going to maybe start breeding. But i think thats kinda crazy when you can`t even GO in the breeders corner. I was gonna get some hints and see what all the other breeders where like.
He is ur friend, ur partner, ur defender, your DOG. You r his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful & true, 2 the last beat of his heart. You owe it 2 him 2 be worthy of such devotion
I do agree with rescue..but I do think younger people need to get involved with showing/breeding as well..there are hardly any young people involved anymore..at least where I've been...I saw NO young handlers down here, and there were only a handful up where I used to live.
I have no interest in breeding, but I think it would be somewhat beneficial if someone were interested to at least be able to read about breeders' experiences. Rescue is wonderful, but if someone really has their mind set on breeding, I'd rather them be as informed as possible--who knows after reading about they may change their minds...
As a very professional breeder I have a different point of view. I think rescue is important and very needed. However there are those that would prefer not to rescue and adopt from a breeder. For those millions in the world that would rather go this route (regardless of breed) it's important to have ONLY professionals, working to the betterment and enhancement of the breed and ensuring it's done correctly which means knowing what you are doing, genetic testing etc. We are blessed to have a very successful program bringing so much happiness to families all over the country. It takes years to develop, the work is so difficult, there are good times and bad. Most who "think" they would like to do this, do not once they find out what is involved.
Anyone who has been on this forum for any length of time is well aware that the overall reception of those who breed or even think of breeding or studding their dogs is generally less than warm & fuzzy.
The breeder's corner allows those who do breed to share information and knowledge without the general bru-ha-ha that follows on the open forum. No matter what your view on breeding vs rescue, there are those out these who are breeding their dogs.
Educating and informing those who are not doing this in the best ways possible is far more effective & lasting than flaming and bashing. We (as a forum) seem to have a problem with this basic concept. Perhaps that was the hope Admin had for the breeder's section? I can't speak for the site owner, but that's my take on it anyway.
