Think the newby that started this thread may have gotten more than he bargained for
Great thread though ..
Have you all noticed though them them Field Trial Ferrari's pups usually sell a lot cheaper than the average MH /NAVHDA type dogs think they MH/NAVK}HDA type dogs must be a different type of sports car perhaps Lamborghini's as they usually sell for a bit more and have a few more options than the average Ferrari
Just teasing everyone has their own idea of the perfect dog, they are many breeding although different types of excellent dogs for different ideas of the perfect dog think anyone looking to find their idea of the perfect hunting companion can easily find it, with a little research whether it be from a hobby breeder or a well known reputable kennel...
After reading through the thread I Think a few on here must have missed the concept meant of a backyard breeder ..When they themselves are really hobby breeders
another example of backyard
A lady from work tells me she wants to breed her lab I ask why she says well shes a house dog and she is so hyper I think if I breed her she may calm down a bit I ask whats her pedigree like, answer well shes got AKC papers, does she hunt , answer NO , whos dog are you considering breeding her to ,answer the neighbers dog his dog is afraid of the water have you ever heard of a lab afraid of the water before, hes a little hyper too but is a good looking dog he's chocolate, how old is your dog answer 18 months
Thats an example of backyard right there now some poor newby will buy them lab pups thinking they got a hunting dog, sire afraid of the water and never been hunting and dam never been hunting being bred because she's to hyper a puppy destroying the house , no health tests , no guarantees , no hunting background , no hunt test background , heck their aint even show dog blood there just two dogs that are of the same breed , not being bred to reproduce what they got or improve on what they got , breeding for color only (Thats BACKYARD )
get the picture
