There are no right/wrong answers for the sake of this discussion, so NO BASHING! Please make sure if you disagree with a person that you do it respectfully, and allow others to share their thoughts and views without feeling attacked. At the same time, questions and scenarios designed to bring new thoughts about breeding decisions made or not made to the forefront are welcome.

I know this is a very sensitive topic, so I expect all members to moderate themselves accordingly.

So, would you breed your dog? Have you?
Let's keep in the spirit of the OP and not bash, this is hypothetical.

you're kidding...right? Do you really think she'll miss not having puppies? Wy not have her fixed and talk to the people you know about adopting a rescue? I'm thinking your girl will appreciate your responsible efforts on behalf of her kind.

Are the people on this site really incapable of reading the OP and following the spirit of a post?

This is an old thread that was bumped by someone who wants to breed their female "so she can have the experience of having puppies" which is why people are responding the way they are now.

Breeding is necessary yes, but that doesn't mean that everything with a functioning uterus or testicles should procreate.

Exclamation Breeding? WHY? WHY NOT?

It sounds as if some people think that there is no good reason to breed a dog. I am not sure I accept that. My breeder makes his living that way. That is how he supports his family along with training. I don't think I want to take that away from him.

I know of people who sell drugs for a living. Does that mean it shouldn't be taken away from them either? Just because its a way to make money doesn't mean it's the right thing to do. Someone who only breeds for money is the last thing I'm looking for in a reputable breeder. I don't consider money a good enough reason to be putting two dogs together and popping out puppies for cash.

The only good reason to breed a GSD is to at least make an honest attempt to better the breed!

If the only reason that your breeder breeds GSD's is to "make a living" - do you see much of a difference (if any) between him and the places that suppy pet stores??? I don't! Or maybe a BYB on a commercial scale?
