Why do people get mad about designer dogs?

    Im just playing devils advocate here. I saw somewhere on the net where some people had created (acording to them) the ultimate protection dog. I may have to look for the website latter. It was a new cross. If they werent asking any more for them than any other protection dog and the dogs were created with a specific purpose in mind, would most people find that acceptable?

    I think it's irresponsible for any breeder to sell a "protection" dog to just anyone that has the money. People don't seem to get that protection and watchdog are two different kinds of animals, there would have to be such an investment of time and energy in proper training that the average person simply isn't willing to spend on the family pet.

    I have had about 50 labradoodles in class and they all shed to some degree or others so _non-shedding_ is not there yet, any dog with hair, IMHO, sheds, some only shed very little, and those they shed very little needs grooming still to cut and trim so mats don't form. The poodle sheds it just is tightly woven hair on them it mats together instead of falling out all over.
    A person I have in class is breeding her 5th generation Aussie Labradoodle, and they are less shedding as the generation goes, the aussie's I think have been breeding these mutts for almost if not there yet, 20 years. Is what I was told.

    All I can tell you is I have a shelter full of "designer dogs" every day of the week, surely if a labradoodle is designer then a Rottnlab or a lababull are equally designer....

    Sorry, sarcasm...I see designers as another oops litter that someone managed creative marketing for...and yes they will wind up in the shelter just like all the other when they aren't popular anymore.

    I have a challenge is breeding for anything other than betterment of the breed in any breed .. period.

    True, Wally Cochrane developed started the breed program in 1988 under the Austalian governments guidance for the Royal Guide Dogs of Victoria, a program that they put over 1 mil. into, so it wasn't some fly by night operation. It truly was meany to be a purpose bred dog, that's okay by me as long as the right protocols are followed.

    But once the local yahoos over there and here got wind of the new "hypo-allergenic" dogs, they all jumped on the bandwagon for the almighty buck :no2:.

    I'm sorry all mutt designers are digusting. I feel sorry for those dogs, but not their snotty owners.

    I think EVERY one of these "poo" dogs are poo... they are ugly.... if you want a mutt save one from the shelter.
