If you put in the work, partipate in show or sport and earn the titles, and if your dog's health and temperment check out, then I bet others in the dog-world will help you with your breeding endevors--especially if you start out with a pup with a sound pedigree. I think it's great that you and your boyfriend are considering training your dogs and becoming breeders. But there are a lot of unwanted dogs, including GSDs in shelters. Just from being on this forum, it seems like there are also a lot of GSDs out there with serious behavior problems. Please get a mentor, learn about pedigrees, work and title your dogs in something so you know their strengths and limitations (be it sport or show or something else), and do things right. I'm not a breeder, but if I was, I would do everything possible to prevent my dogs from ending up in the hands of unethical breeders who would use them to pump out litter after litter of puppies that end up who knows where. That may absolutely NOT be you, but how does a breeder know that unless you prove it and earn their trust? There are certain qualifications or degrees that one must earn to call themselves a professional in almost any field, why not a dog breeder?
