What s a responsible breeder?

Missy & LouieResponsible breeding encompasses a range of behaviors rather than one narrow path. In general, responsible breeders strive to produce healthy, well socialized dogs that meet the standard for their breed. They provide lifetime support to those who purchase puppies, and they care aboutthe well-being of every dog they produce. There are a number of different ways to accomplish those goals. Health testing alone does not make a breeder responsible nor does success in the show ring. Most of the responsible breeders that we know have a genuine passion for their dogs and the breed.
