    Emma,

    Sorry – its just how your post reads for me.

    One little niggle I always have here, and you probably share it too … if it wasnt for careless breeders … there would be no william-dog, maybe no Asha, no Elliott ….

    Sorry – but I HATE the argument of no breeders/no dogs. I’ve never heard anything so ridiculous. If there were stricter laws regarding breeding, it would not lead to the extinction of dogs! There is no way of telling that William or Asha came from purposeful breeding at all – straying dogs are always mating. Because of where Elliot came from, I would have preferred if he was never bred at all  😮

    Hi,

    I hope that first comment is not aimed at me because anyone can clearly see I have not said such a thing at all ! !

    What I am saying is that I very strongly believe that William was from an unplanned union or unethical breeder (his breed leads me to think farm dogs or even puppy farm dogs), his colouring no-one in the breed would want, and he was sent to a totally unsuitable home as a puppy and the “breeder” would not take him back.

    I am saying that while I would love this careless breeding to cease a little tug of my heart does tell me that its more than sure that William wouldnt have been here without it.

    I’m not sure where you got the idea I was saying no breeders/no dogs from ??

    Puzzled.

    Claire.

    I think what we would all like is the 99% of people are responsible owners & that they try not to have “accidents” If this was the case then the puppies produced by the 1% would have homes waiting instead of them waiting for homes!

    Hi and Welcome
    Please pretty please love your boy and keep him a virgin if he had been any good for breeding he would be living with a breeder he would need all his health data (Has he had his hips scored) very important in GSD’s.

    He would be shown he would need at the very least to have won his stud book number longhairs are not even shown, I posted somewhere on the board (Claire help) the last numbers the KC published I believe there were over 13,000 GSD’s registered in the last quarter of the Breed Record Supps this is a KC publication.

    If you found a bitch owner to mate with your boy I guarantee it will not be a good caring breeder  you cannot make a clone of your lad believe me I have been trying to do that for years in a breed I know very well and have shown to top honours breeding is not for the faint hearted GSD’s are a breed that have come a long way in the last twenty years serious breeders have worked hard on many health problems within the breed
    So please don’t breed him just love him for what he is your lovely boy.
    Remember he is one dog he could sire a litter of twelve how would you like to hear of his daughter being breed every year or six of his children going through rescue or even worse landing in the wrong hands getting knocked about for a while then when he bites back gets put to sleep you as the sire’s owner will have NO say in the pups at all a stud any stud only supplies a service.
    But here we would love to see a picture or three of him cos we like pictures on this board

    Hello everyone

    I have just registered and would like to know if there are any members in the Merseyside area who breed German Shepherds.  I have a beautiful three year old German Shepherd. Excellent pedigree and temperement.  I am not professional breeder just a German Shepherd owner – my favourite breed.  I would just love to carry on my dog’s line as he would produce such lovely puppies.  He is black & gold and is a long hair.[flash=200,200][/flash]

    I run a breeding kennels – and no I’m not proud of the stigma it portrays, because it lumps me in with puppy farmers, and if that were the case I’d give up.Still its the same rules and regulations that applies.
    You are best to get information on setting up any kennels from your local council because all councils have different rules. Ours here says you need a breeders licence if you breed 2 or more litters a year, still if its in the interest of animal welfare, then its no bad thing.
    I also run a boarding kennels and cattery, infact the only one on the southern Isles of the Hebrides, so we are usually very busy again strict rules and regulations apply in order to get licenced.

    Its not that easy and very expensive to run (I’ wont fed cheap food)my dogs wont eat rubbish so I dont expect visitors to eat it either.Its very difficult as I get my food shipped over form the mainland in tonne loads a pallet costs me almost £100 delivery plus the cost of food which is somewhere in the region of £600 a month. then you have rates, electricity, disinfectant, medicines, wormers inoculations – and loads more hidden cost so its not cheap to run (if its done correctly).
    I also buy treats, roasted bones 250 a month pigs ears 500 a month, hide chews 200 a month, no wonder I’m always skint!!
    still its rewarding, youget to know your clients or more important their dogs , so its a wonderful job , and on the breeding side I’m running an improvement programme for the plummer terriers – to date I have never advertised a pup , and thats after 8 yrs, if the day comes that I have to and it all comes down to rearing pups to earn a living – I’ll give up the breeding side.

    still, i do take a dim view that my licence is the same as a pupy farmers licence, i think in this day and age specialist breeders should have a licence corresponding to what they do – so we dont get mistaken for looking at our dogs as a cash crop when thats the furthest thing from my mind.

    Thats very true, it shouldn’t be right to come under the same catagory as them 🙂

    You must love your job very much 🙂  I know I would 🙂

    Its great – I count myself very lucky, but its hard work , 7 days a week, 365 days a year, cant leave the premises unattended for a period of more than a few hours(not that we ever do anyway). always open for inspection, so everything must be 100% all the time (well unless you are in the middle of cleaning out)its also a chinese laindry washing doggy blankets, but its very rewarding, not particularly financially but as for job satisfaction you cant beat it, that and being right next to the beaches and sea.

    Are boarding licences different up there?  Down here it clearly stipulates that boarding dogs must not be left without a responsible adult being present.  I would be horrified if I left my dogs in boarding kennels and there wasn’t anyone to get them out in case of fire.  :'(

    PS  I’ve only visited the Isle of Syke for a few days, but you’re lucky to be living in that part of the world!   ;D
