It takes a big heart, love, time, passion, compassion, devotion, patience, honesty, pride and of coarse money to run a responsible and successful breeding program.
A good breeder must first begin by having natural love for animals. We have always been a family of animal lovers, but I can't thank my grandparents enough for sharing this special gift through their children and with every generation since.
Before you begin a breeding program, it requires hours and hours of research, education, the willingness to learn from other, to have great breeder friends to support you and to have a shoulders to cry on along the way, as there will always be bumps in the road.
A breeder should always have as much time and love for people as they have for their dogs and puppies. The willingness to teach, share and educate puppy families should be very important.
Purchasing a dog with breeding rights is much more expensive than the cost of a companion dog, plus travel expenses to get the new breeding prospect puppy to you, importing from over seas is additionally very costly. Just one breeding prospect puppy can be over $6500.00 for an 8 week old puppy bred in the US, depending on the breed, color and generation.
Vet exams, vaccines, heartworm prevention, worming, safe flea & tick prevention if and when needed.
Quality diets - every breeder finds which quality diet works well for them, their puppies and adults. None of these diets would be found in the aisles of a grocery store. Most quality diets are sold directly online to breeders and families or in specialty pet food stores.
Proper exercise and training - keeping our dogs mentally and structurally sound, takes time and money.
Supplements, vitamins, prebiotics, probiotics to help support proper health, growth and development.
Health Screening - every purebred dog has recommended health screening per it's Parent Club for example "The Poodle Club of America" and "Golden Retriever Cub of America". Being a responsible Doodle breeder requires the testing recommended for both breeds. Which for many Doodle hybrids can cost almost double that of a purebred depending on the two foundation breeds. All our work, research, hopes, prayers, money and dreams go into our dogs passing all their health and personality testing. If they fail any part they are spayed or neutered and placed with a wonderful family as a companion at a very reduced adoption fee $200.- $1000.00 or released to their Guardian Family.
