OVerall a good chart - - but to 'split hairs'!!! I do not agree with the labels at the top end....the "reputable" is more a professional breeder and some of the descriptions do not apply to many - if any!!! - breeders in North America! IMO using this chart while "Hobby" is more what I think is a reputable experienced breeder....

but the lower end classes are pretty good

I agree with you

Joanna Campbell at Ruffly Speaking just did a blog post on some 'backyard breeder' warning signs that aren't always true. I agree with it and think it's more applicable depending on the case by case.

Signs of a Backyard Breeder

When I think a reputable experienced breeder, I think professional all the way as the top of the hill.

Dog trainer etc. highly involved. Don't like dealing with armatures in any industry. Why the breeder of my dog.

I couldn't agree with you more. I love the Ruffly Speaking article and think the typical "signs of a good breeder" spread around the internet like they're the Bible can be misleading. Just the other day I was talking to a friend and dispelling a whole bunch of notions she had about what a "good" breeder absolutely does not do.

I do think it's beneficial to belong to a breed-specific club. It's a huge advantage as a social/training/support network for your local puppy buyers. I've met so many nice people through our local club and think it is a great resource. I found it without my breeder, but I might have been too shy to join in on activities if she hadn't been an enthusiastic member who was happy to introduce me to people.

I don't really agree with some of the things she listed in the article.
