No, no I am not. I get asked this very often. Today, I was asked this by a tech that works at the Humane Society. I wonder if she would have thought little of me if I had said yes, seeing as we were at a Humane Society.
I understand that just because my dogs are purebred and AKC registered does not mean they are worthy of being bred. Delta has never been evaluated by an AKC judge. Doc will hopefully be getting judged by an AKC judge. I am not a breeder, so I do not think I can make the decision to breed my dogs. I will leave that to the professionals. Asking me if I would eventually like to become a breeding professional, however, would be a difference question. Why yes, I think I would maybe like to become a professional breeder… someday. Someday far in the future because I still have a LOT to learn.
I think a lot of people have the idea that their dogs are AKC registrable, therefore they are automatically the prime example of their breed. But they aren’t. They could actually be very far from it. Or that the AKC name could bring them in a lot of money. And it could. But I understand that true professional breeders usually LOSE or break even on their puppies.
The fact is that it takes a lot to breed healthy, sound, conformationally correct puppies, and I still have a lot to learn. So no, I do not plan on breeding my two. That would be pretty hard considering Delta is spayed!
