Thank you - I agree with you too. Some animal advocates believe that ANY breeder is a bad breeder.
I know of labradoodle breeders who ARE breeding CKC registered purebreds with health checks etc., so I don't see how that is irresponsible.
I believe the real solutions are
1) SPAY AND NEUTER YOU PETS!!!!!!
2) education of the masses on what is a pet and pet responsibility
It's the animal OWNERS that need to be responsible.
25 years ago it was cool to smoke - through massive education - not it's not cool. I think the same is achievable for pets but I'm not sure we'd have the $$$$ behind us to make it happen
