Hi everyone , I don't want to start any fights or anything , and I'm in NO way implying I want to start breeding dogs for $$$$ . I am just curious
I hear many good breeders say that you can't make any money if you responsibly breed a dog . But I was curious what all the hidden costs must be ? I know you pay alot of money for the best food and of course toys , bones , and all that good stuff we all get our pets . And then there's vet bills . I know things can go terribly wrong , but what if they don't ? And then all the OFA certifications and stuff . And I can see that if you show , well there goes tons of money . But what about the breeders that don't show ? Are they considered bad breeders then ? Like with newfoundlands , people pay up to ( or more ? ) $2,000 for a puppy . And that breeders dog had 10 puppies . That's $20 , 000 . Where does all the money go to ?
wheeew , I'm long winded . Sorry , I'm just curious how it all works ! Thanks a bunch !
well, there's the cost of championing the mom, ex rays, dew claw removal, stud fee, shots,, health certificates, food, and so on,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,BREED TO MAKE BETTER DOGS,,,,,,,,,,NOT MORE, selling pups without all this, yea, thats puppy milling and $$$$$
