Why do some breeders not use titled females?
I have always heard it said that both parents should be titled when purchasing a pup from a reputable breeder. This makes intuitive sense to me. However, I have come across several breeders who are very well-regarded on this forum and by people I know who are breeding females without titles. Are there good reasons to do this? To me it looks like they are females from studs that they favor highly.
Also, this is just based on internet research, so is it possible that these are dogs in the process of achieving titles and the information is just not up to date? It seems strange to me that a six year-old female would not have any titles listed when all the males do. Or maybe it is because the males are imported with titles in hand?
