Suspicious Breeder Has an "I am A Responsible Breeder" Article on Dogster Mag

If you are wondering what is the right dog for you, this is the place to be. In this introductory forum we talk about topics such as breed vs. mix, size, age, grooming, breeders, shelters, rescues as well as requirements for exercise, space and care. No question is too silly here. This particular forum is for getting and giving helpful, nice advice. It is definitely not a forum for criticizing someone else's opinion, knowledge or advice. This forum is all about tail wagging and learning.

oh, I left out Toto. I meant you too...but Toto has been very helpful and to me personally with my Cocker/Corgi issues. Things are going fine there, by the way. I have even seen a little backyard "play" wrassling between them. But you bet, I keep an eye on them now!

So, so sad...

Some people are just delusional...

The breeder I got Skip from breeds dogs for pet homes mainly. However, both parents were extensively health tested, were shown regularly and even worked... Skip's five generation pedigree shows thirty champions and his parents are from some of the best lines in Europe... I'm picky! Very picky and hound breeders... I want to know everything and I want proof, otherwise I could just adopt a dog from a shelter.

Thanks Tiller, for bringing this breeder down a peg... He needed it. Breeding for the love of the dogs is NOT good enough nor does it make you purely 'ethical'...

Some people think they can just buy a good looking dog, buy a few more and become a breeder. THAT makes me so angry!

I get the feeling that some of the Dogster writers don't know anything about dogs. They just do the minimal research then write an article as fact with many flaws. Shame on them. shrug

My number one question still remains unanswered... HOW can you be an ethical, responsible breeder if you have NEVER bred a litter???????

Thank you for asking that Toto, I feel that I have experinced birth through the process of looking at pictures of dogs with their puppies on the internet while doing my extensive research from here in Alaska. I can feel what they feel, they speak to me through the pictures and that has made me very humble, I will not let them down! Elephants are grey.

Their entire website and blog are set up to trigger search engines for people searching for German shepherd puppies. All the hot links throughout their writing link back to their home page, and the more time people spend on the website and click through the portions of the website, the more the search engine will "find" that page. And he says he doesn't market his dogs...

One of the first things I thought of is how he claims to be a responsible breeder but his oldest breeding dog isn't even two, and it seems like his oldest German shepherd isn't much older than that... I don't think he's a bad guy, just not as good as he makes himself sound... I am a rescue person through and through, but I recognize the place for truly reputable breeders. I don't think he's there.
