First of all, why is it that if dogs can't be bred or have problems in their pedigrees they should be fixed? This is from your comment that 2/3 of the people on the forum have the dogs related to that dog and should they all spay? Others said that too.
Why fix? Why not let them remain intact and just not breed?
But anyway. So it's a bunch of tough choices.
OK another question. It must be extremely tough to do the right thing sometimes. For example, you have a dog with some nice titles, everything is perfect about him and then some health problem comes along. Something serious. I can't give a good example because I don't know anything about this but something that will be passed along.
How do you let all the work go and not breed? It must be extremely tough. From what I know it takes years of work to title a dog, so do you just start over with another one? Breed anyway?
Another question. Are there obvious no no's? Or every breeder has their own lines that they won't cross?
Like are there things that should never be done and if a breeder does it then he's unethical? Or it's all what you're comfortable with?
Also, someone who only has 5 dogs, what if 3-4 turn out unsuitable later on?
I just can't imagine someone doing the right thing and scrapping their program and starting over?
Or If you know what you're doing then you can tell way before you put much work in the dog?
I heard some things can crop up years down the line.
