Let’s talk about MONEY, Shall we?
& Pure bred dogs, dogs in shelters and dogs bred just cause they could ...
And allow me to share ahead - I am not looking for negative conversation here ...
Just sharing few thoughts that came to my mind as I am pondering while vacuuming
Recently I heard a comment
“your puppies are expensive”.
And from that point of view - I must agree. Those looking
“for a puppy”
- our puppies are expensive.
Those - looking for great
“quality pure bred German Shepherd”
- that is different.
No breeder gets rich on breeding pure bred dogs.
It is a HEART thing.
Passion for the breed,
Passion to contribute in the breed’s development and making it better,
Passion for their own dogs and doing it “right” ...
Contribution to the integrity of this dog world,
What ever the reasons are ...
The amount of time invested,
Travel cost to shows and training,
Travel cost to Europe,
(Due to pandemic 3-5x times higher cost)
Not to mention the hours, weeks and months of time invested in training,
And the list goes on.
Unless one has 50 dogs and just multiplies - the richness is in the HEART satisfaction and fulfillment.
... & unfortunately - then there are dogs, who were bred only because they can.
I truly believe - that if anyone is looking for a new family member -
“quality pure bred dog”
with the characteristics the breed brings”
... boxer, pug, golden retriever or german shepherd - SUPPORT THE BREEDER that “does it right” is the way to go.
If someone is looking for
“A puppy” ...
Helping a dog in a shelter is the other way to go (Personally had a few).
It is my pleasure to share with you updates about our dogs and our kennel along with valuable educational tips and best practices.
