Mit kell tudni ahhoz, hogy kutyatenyésztő legyél?
But, dreaming of fabulous incomes, beginners most often do not think about the pitfalls of pedigree breeding. So what does a beginner need to know and do to carry the proud title of “dog breeder”?
There is a very good expression that breeders “are only temporary guardians of the breed.” The most important thing in breeding, which in no case should be forgotten, is not to worsen, but to improve the breeding material with which the breeder works. That is, children should be better than their parents. But even the most beautiful dog is a difficult test if it has health and mental problems. Therefore, initially, those who want to breed should carefully study the parents of the future breeding female: whether they have been tested for various diseases, whether tests have been made on the puppy itself.
For subsequent breeding work, it is necessary to choose a dog that is absolutely healthy and comes from healthy parents, and also has an excellent psyche and is a typical representative of the breed. Your future breeding female does not have to be the daughter of world champions, but her pedigree must contain truly outstanding dogs that have proven themselves to be excellent producers. So, before buying a dog, you should study the breed well, analyze which dogs left the most noticeable mark on it, and have at least minimal knowledge of genetics.
To do this, you should undergo special training or seek advice from someone who can help with the selection of a manufacturer. And, of course, your puppy must have all the required documents (puppy card, which is exchanged for a pedigree, veterinary passport), as well as a brand or chip.
