Re: The Monks of New Skete German Shepherds
you may want to check archives if that is possible on this board, I believe this question has been asked before.
Anyway, MY opinion, they write very good books for the most part. Don't mistake good writing for good sense when it comes to breeding.
They don't title dogs. That is one big alarm.
Years ago, as I understand it, they had a monk who was in charge of their breeding program and he is did ok with it. He has long since passed on, and it no longer is what it used be.
There is anothe prrominant breeder in this country, who makes and sells fantastic videos, and sells equipment and even has a really nice web site, messageboard, and will send you a video showcasing his breeding program. Don't mistake good marketing for good breeding ethics.
Key things I would look for....someone who actually titles and/or shows thier own dogs.
Any more than a handful of litters a year would be a major red flag whacking me in the head.
Someone who keeps in touch with their puppy owners.
Someone who has puppies out there actually doing stuff so they can fully evaulate what they are producing versus simply flooding the pet market with them.
A breeder who takes back their puppies at any time for any reason.
this is just a start....I hope this helps....
