Yeah I'd love to get into breeding some day but I really like having males. The *only* thing I don't like having multiple males is the marking in the yard, since my yard is VERY small (about 2000 square feet). But, NO heat cycles, no bitch fighting. If I ever got a female it would not be a puppy and she'd probably live with my sister.

Haha, that's actually my favorite part about males at shows... ladies can take their sweet time finding the perfect potty spot. When I'm showing males all I have to do is get them to the nearest upright object outside and we're clear for the ring. Doing potty breaks for 4 females before ring time can take a half hour; with boys it'd take all of four minutes. :P

I don't plan to have any males, just females and I will use outside studs if/when the time comes. If I had a male at home it would just be too easy to keep "using" him rather than search out new studs. Plus I like not having to deal with a male when my girls are in heat! I've heard they can get rather obnoxious. So the only males I will have will be altered, we only have 1 neutered male dog now anyway.

I'm with Selzer. In the next year or two I'll be getting another dog--male, for a lot of reasons--and one of the things I'll consider is how his pedigree might compliment that of my youngest girl (almost 2 y.o. now).

I'm not necessarily planning to breed them, but the possibility does exist, either planned or "oops." Mostly though because I know that my girl is a good match for me, that some of her "cousins" would also be a good match for me, and that a male from similar lines has a good chance of being a good match for me.
