What to consider when agreeing to co own.
I know co owning is something that is done all the time with CH dogs, what are some of the pros and cons.

It's all about whats in the contract, what both parties are comfortable with.
I co owned my aussie and it was absolutely no problems,,I made sure I made all final decisions regarding health/whether to spay or not/ the breeder was fine with that.

Co-ownership can have many drawbacks, if you seriously are planning on breeding the dog. As previously stated..." It's all about whats in the contract". With that in mind....have a contract which has language in it which provides for all your intents, wishes and desires. Never assume the co-ownership is based on friendship or any other current attitudes at the current time of creating a co-ownership. People change, verbal agreements change and or "disappear"....many things change over a period of time and minor differences can escalate. It is always best to protect yourself and the other party(s) with clear language in a co-ownership. If you cannot come up with an equitable contract when all is "peachy keen"...it will be a nightmare when a difference in opinion arises down the road.
Something as simple as a difference in opinion regarding diet, crate training, indoctrination techniques for a pup etc. can lead to a rift in what was once perceived as a wonderfully compatible co-ownership. The art and science of dog breeding and raising pups is chock full of different approaches and opinions.....
A well written contract is the best way to ensure all involved remain decent, civil and focused on the original "handshake" when this co-ownership was born.
