Back to basics. What term is used to describe the opposite of a reputable (ie. disreputable) breeder?
Which one of these is an acceptable reason to breed?
To educate children on the miracle of life
For betterment of the breed in question
To earn a living
To create cute puppies
Why is it frowned upon to earn a living breeding dogs?
No reputable breeder makes a profit through breeding
Dogs are not worth much money
There are better jobs out there
Cat breeding is worth more
How does a reputable breeder deter potential new owners of their pet-quality puppies (i.e. ones that do not have show or working potential) from having their own offspring if they're sold before they are spayed/neutered?
They won't need to do anything as all pet-quality puppies are sent to new homes already spayed/neutered with no exceptions
No reputable breeder ever produced pet quality puppies. That's what shelters are there for
They will chase the new owners up with phone calls/emails/letters
They will place the puppy on a limited registration with their nation's Kennel Club until they have proof it is spayed/neutered
While reputable breeders aim to produce dogs that have working or show potential, it is inevitable that they will produce some pet-quality dogs. What is done to prevent the genes of such dogs from being perpetuated?
They are culled at birth
Their new owners are just encouraged to get them spayed/neutered when they are old enough but there are no strict rules about this
That is ridiculous. Only backyard breeders produce pet-quality dogs
The new owners are required to have them spayed/neutered at the appropriate age
It isgenerally considered a huge "backyard" practice to breed mutts. Why is this?
Mutts generally have a lower than average intelligence
Mutts always have a questionable temperament
There are enough wasting away in shelters. Why produce more?
Mutts are extremely hard to sell
Many people assume that all a breeder needs to do to be considered reputable is to register dogs with their country's Kennel Club. This is wrong. Why?
They are not legit registries
A national Kennel Club, while the only legit dog registry, still registers dogs that do not have genetic clearances and have not been shown/worked/titled
They register mutts
They are run by people who condone the wearing of fur
Why don't reputable breeders advertise on the Internet (apart from on their own personal websites)?
Why bother with the Internet when you have the local paper? At least if your puppies stay in the local area, it is easier to keep an eye on them
Most people buy from pet shops rather than on the Internet, so they place ads there instead
They have far better means of advertising and communicating with the people most suitable to own their puppies
The Internet does not allow you to advertise live animals
What is one thing a reputable breeder should provide for any new owner?
A video of the mother whelping the litter
A list of vet surgery/obedience classes/groomer suggestions
A puppy lead/collar set
A contract that states on what conditions the puppy was sold, including health guarantees
What is one reason a reputable breeder DOESN'T want to check a potential new home for a puppy?
To check how tidy the house is
To check how secure the house is in terms of windows, doors, fences, etc
To make sure that all household members understand and accept how a new puppy will alter their routine
To check how well-cared any other animals in the household look
