The first kennel posted is awfully small and VERY pricey. I got a larger kennel for FREE.. someone just had it lying around and asked if we wanted it. I've seen similar kennels for sale on Craigslist for just a couple hundred.

Secondly, Siberian Huskies also love to be around people... so I wouldn't keep them kenneled outside all of the time any sooner than I would a GSD.

Thirdly, why exactly do you want a "breeding operation" and what do you hope to accomplish?

Really, the only con to this situation is they'd have to be outside dogs. We own our land, so not extra charges for owning a dog here. It's out in the country with only one neighbor who didn't mind my last siberian at all.
Looks like you might be in Miss.? if so, have you considered the summer heat outside?

Siberians love to be around people, but have an more independent nature than GSDs. They don't have to be around their owner 24/7. However, I guess you didn't read my last reply on page 2. I have decided to wait before getting a dog or starting my breeding program.

Now, on the third thing about "breeding operation", I have answered this SO many times that I am just sick and tired of answering it. Look back through my posts and threads to see what I have said as an answer to this.

Yes, I did consider that. I was looking at an ac or way to control the climate. Like I said on page 2, I will wait. I really want to start soon, but it would very very hard and nearly impossible for me.

It would be hard to keep my breeding stock fur up even with climate control. Then, it would super hard to show and finish a championship, pay necessary breeding costs, and then raise and whelp a litter all while attending college full time.

What's stopping me is money and time. If I did that, I couldn't afford myself let alone showing and breeding siberians.

Glad you decided to wait... better to do things right than do things quickly.

My apologies on the second question... I do not read every post on the forum therefore have never seen your answer. Red flags went up in my brain with the very small kennel posted... I imagined breeding dogs stuck in tiny kennels and churning out puppies. NOT saying this was your intention... that's just what immediately came to mind.

I understand fully and I apologize for being so rude. That was rude, I could have said it in a nicer way. You're just looking out for dogs, especially GSDs.

Sibes are pretty cool, too! We did a lot of research on them because originally we were going to get Siberians... but then I fell in love with Luna on Petfinder.

Really? It's hard to find GSD fans who also like siberians because the breeds are so different.

I see you like rotties too! We had a rottie mix growing up. When she growled, we could hear it a mile away!

There are seriously so many breeds I like, I would have to live a million years to own them all. LOL! I think the reason I fell for Luna was that her puppy pic was very "Sibe" like. (She's the silver/black GSD in my avatar).

Apollo "growlspeaks" when he wants something (food, attention, etc.). It's like a "roo roo RAWR!" sound. Too funny and cute!
