If you are looking at breeding you must be honest with yourself on why and what are your goals . When you are looking for a partner what do you look for? Does the partner you seek need a Phd or run 100metres in 11 seconds , so why does the dog need a title . Firstly I would not breed any dog under 3 years as they are still teenagers . I would not line bred as many show people do . When seeking a pup 3 years ago I approached 5 show breeders who were going to breed brindled dogs , 3 were struck off my list when I asked about the pups lineage and the forth was struck off when I found out the dog was being put to its grand mother . ..
Would this be acceptable in humans? ""
Dogs aren't people... So heck yes I want a dog or bitch I bred to be titled. So you only want to hunt...okay...but breeding dogs when you seem uninformed on line breeding, genetics...and snub your nose at titles doesn't do the breed much good.
I remember your posts..
- Shock collars on puppies
I also put an E-collar on the dog when they start out in the bush and I must admit they are brilliant . I have only ever had to push the button about 6 times in 25 years. Each pup has only needed about 2 corrections when they got the urge to chase something . <
Over 2 years, no improvement in respect for those who show, probably stl shocking pups instead of teaching them right. Yeah I'm anti shock...glad it's been banned in a lot of countries. But its a disgrace to use on puppies, or any dog before they 100% know what to do.
This seems a common problem in the breed but it has nothing to do with intact dogs . It is your job to socialise a pup from early on to stop it happening . To those that don’t agree look at a basenjis origins as a pack dog and all dogs were intact but they all get along.<<
Now it seems you imagine that you can socialize a Basenji...or any dog...out of dog aggression. You might train to ignore, but don't kid yourself that dog aggression is gone.
You raised some valid points in regard to breeders mating dogs for there conformation and no regard for demeanour . This is common with show breeders . <
Common? I wonder what type of irresponsible breeders you hang out with? Your comment is impressively misinformed and an insult to all responsible breeders!
