If you didn't mean you didn't need anymore education, why would you write "I don't need to educate myself"? Seems pretty cut and dry to me.

I'm not breeding my dog, but I've spent almost $200 in health testing and hundreds more in gas, tolls, equipment, etc. to get to various sorts of competitions, and I only do sports on a part-time basis. I would be $1,000s in for just a pet. Good breeders spend a whole hell of a lot more.

I'd have no problem paying a lot for a pup I wanted, but like Kady mentioned, if you do things with your dogs, you are often offered them for free or for less because the good breeders know you.

Exactly if they don't health test etc they aren't reputable breeders they are bybers. The people who still show and have champions but don't health test are bybers.

Reputable breeder means they DO all that stuff, if they don't they aren't reputable.

jeez, thanks for sharing all that. im gonna have to get right on the phone and inform the older gentlemen i know that they are just back yard breeders. :no2:
