Yes, I do. I think that dog breeding is really a business and in a business you make a profit.
I hate it when people say that if you make a profit, you're not a good breeder. It's like you absolutely must lose to be a good breeder.
Now, people love the breed but people can also love selling when in a company.
That's how I feel about it. It's unfair to classify anyone making a profit off breeding as a BYB or puppy mill.
You should be looking at what they're putting into the business and the quality of what they are producing.
Wel, if there's no profit in it (in either dog quality or money made) why do it?
The idea that making a monetary profit from breeding dogs is "wrong" is ludicrous. The idea that losing money by breeding dogs is "right" is equally ludicrous.
Profiting by deception is wrong, and losing money struggling to do something well is incompetence.
In the end, the best breeders profit by producing good dogs consistently enough so that people continually seek them out.
