Oh and it will be a part of the family as it will be my girls little girl boy
Pet insurance will not cover a dog with a pre existing condition
@Kieranp0710, please stop being so rude and agressive in your responses.
Am I understanding correctly?
It's okay to breed a dog with possible genetic conditions because pet insurance will cover it?
That doesn't even make sense!
Absolutely doesn't make sense..
Certain breeds and congenital conditions are often excluded anyway...not necessarily hip dysplasia, but certain others are...
I have heard of it, yes.
However, what you say doesn't make any sense.
Firstly, whose insurance? I assume you are not going to take out insurance for every pup you sell and you cannot force the new owners of your pups to do so.
And, insurance for a pre-existing condition? Oh no.
Your bitch has not been hip or elbow scored. She could well pass very real problems to her pups. You are responsible for that and insulting other forum members doesn't do your credibility much good.
Just looked that up have we ? You know what swivel on shit the lot if you
Could being the word you all use well come back to me when you have got figures of this and I might not change my mind
That's enough !
Well we know what kind of response your poor puppy buyers will get if/when they run into trouble with their dog. Charming.
So the avoidance of bringing a pup into the world with painful joint problems that mean they dog can't walk properly, that cost thousands to fix, is 'way too cautious'?
I call it responsible.
I was actually just wondering about this today when I found you post. A couple years ago I thought I'd get a female and breed with my male. I didn't want to just for the money alone, but that was part of it. I also was interested because when I was looking for a chi I couldn't find one within my budget and wanted to see someone in my shoes have an easier time or a family be able to give there child a dog to grow up with and be able to afford it. My chi is just your standard 5lb. Chi he's perfect but doesn't scream showdog or prime pedigree so I wouldn't go and charge people as if they were any more then what they were. Thank God I researched obsessively,and realized how much goes into it and how under qualified I am to mess around with several little living souls. So I do realize that breeders are not doing it just for the money so I wonder what are the reasons breeders out there are breeding there dogs. From the impression I got it seemed like even breeders without morals would have a hard time making much monet in the long run. So I'm just curious what reasons breeders out there have for breeding there dogs?
I bred because I had a breed which had just been recognised by the Kennel Club and I wanted to show.
We had a limited circle who were breeding for the same reasons as me, to establish a typy. healthy dog, fit for purpose and conforming to the Breed Standard.
Actually it's the complete opposite, the breeders with the least scruples are the ones who cut corners, talk the talk & dupe naive people into buying their poorly bred dogs.
And then there's the people who have the same moral stance as these breeders, they know but don't care about what goes on behind the scene to make the cute puppies.
In all honesty, while your heart might be in the right place, breeding for affordable dogs to make other people happy is really not a good reason to breed, rescues are full of dogs that were bred because it seemed like a 'nice idea'.
What is the breed called?
Parson Russell Terrier.
Without morals people can turn profit and commercial breeders are a business making money. Good breeders are not in it for the money and often lose a lot of money breeding, it can be very expensive.
I breed to preserve the breed and attempt to improve the breed.
Thats sound good. its great idea.
