We have been going to a private trainer for about 3 weeks now. The trainer was recommending by a really good friend that has been using her for years. She has 4 beautiful GSD’s of her own and specializes in GSD but offers training for most breeds. Our first training session went very well; the trainer had nothing but nice things to say about our little girl. Well my wife went to another training session but this one was with other puppies around the same age, works on obedience around distractions but is mainly for socializing and puppy play time. Anyways after our first class the trainer wanted to look at Ridley’s pedigree, so my wife brought it today and after the class the trainer took a look at it. Not exactly sure what was said but the trainer is really interested in breeding her. We are going to talk about it a little more when we can both be there but I had never thought about breeding before. I know it’s an extreme time commitment but just wanted to see what other people here had to say about it. I obviously don’t have enough GSD experience to breed her on my own, that’s where the trainer would come in, and she has worked with GSD for over 15 years. I’m not saying it’s a 100% for sure thing yet, like I said there is gonna have to be a long discussion with our trainer before we truly consider it. But if we could bring other people as much joy as Ridley has brought us, it something I would like to look into. I know there is a lot of “Backyard Breeders” and unethical breeding going on with this breed and I want nothing to do with that. So lets hear it, experience’s, pros, cons, advise, anything, I wanna hear it all so I am a little more informed before we have this discussion with the trainer.
