INFOCENTER BREEDING PROTOCOL

The Premier Principles of Breeding

PLAN FOR THE FUTURE
Reputable breeders will learn as much as they can about a breed and a particular dog BEFORE they buy it!

REQUEST THE BEST
Reputable breeders will buy the typiest, healthiest, most temperamentally sound puppy they can to use in their breeding program.

E
DUCATION IS THE KEY
Reputable breeders will be a member of a breed club, own books on the breed and on genetics, attend seminars, and regularly get together with their doggie friends to *brainstorm* about all the facets of dogs so as to learn and keep up their knowledge.

M
AINTAIN OPTIMAL CARE
Reputable breeders will feed the best diet, keep their dogs fit, follow the best vaccination protocol, and make sure their dogs get plenty of human contact from birth on so that the dog will be better able to produce, carry and raise healthy and temperamentally sound puppies.

IDENTIFY QUALITY
Reputable breeders show their dogs in some capacity--either the breed ring or in performance events such as obedience, agility, coursing, herding, field trials, etc. to identify their quality and worth as breeding stock.

EMBRACE HEALTH TESTING
Reputable breeders fully test (hips, eyes, hearts and patellas) all their breeding stock and carefully and intelligently breed only those dogs which they feel will enhance the breed.  All testing except for patellar luxation is done by specialists.  Ophthalmologist for eyes, cardiologist for hearts, OFA/PennHIP for hips.

RESPONSIBLE BREEDING
Reputable breeders restrict from breeding any pet puppies that they sell.  They are always there to answer any questions a buyer might ask.  They are willing to take back any puppy they have sold, ANYTIME, even if the puppy is now old and has health problems.  They are always there to help if a puppy they sold develops a health problem.  They will offer support and information and many will even chip in for all or part of any surgery needed for an inherited health problem.
