Every year millions of unwanted dogs are destroyed. While the majority of these dogs are mongrels – the product of unplanned mating – there have been a great many purebred dogs whose outcome has been similar, largely because of their owners’ ignorance and carelessness. Here are some lists of popular dogs that are being rampantly bred without even knowing the basics of dog breeding:
As the owner of a purebred dog, or of any dog for that matter, you must decide carefully whether there is a need and a place for the puppies that your dog’s breeding may bring forth. In other words, if you plan to breed your dog, you must guarantee that homes will be found for each puppy. Here are some questions in mind that you want to consider before breeding your dog:
- Should I breed my dog?
- What is the pedigree of my dog?
- What is the mechanics of genetics?
- Is it worth it to breed my dog?
Breeding purebreds dogs should never be thought of as a” get-rich-quick” scheme; on the contrary. Properly raising and caring for a litter of pups requires a significant investment of time and money. It is hard work, yet it can be fun and satisfying.
