The Benefits of Dog Breeding: 5 Key Points

Dog Breeding

Dog breeding has a tarnished reputation among many people today, unfortunately. They feel dog breeders are irresponsible puppy-making machines who don’t care about the general wellness of dogs. However, this is far from the truth.

Responsible breeders are not the reason why shelters are full of puppies. Puppy mills often practice irresponsible breeding and prioritise profit over the welfare of puppies. This compromises the health of the pups, making them end up in shelters where they are not sold.

Most responsible breeders claim they only breed for themselves, and they are not in it entirely for the money. Although, it’s somewhat true that dog breeding will not probably make you a millionaire, here are some good reasons why you should opt for dog breeding.

  •   High Demand For Puppies

We have seen how so many people became dog parents after the coronavirus pandemic. Since then, more people are now looking for dog companionship. This has increased the demand for well-bred healthy puppies. Also, the reason why animal rights activists and dog breeders are not on the same page is that they see responsible breeders and puppy mills as the same. However, a responsible breeder will never let a puppy end up in a shelter. By responsible breeding, you can earn some money and also provide a healthy puppy to a family looking for a loyal companion.

  • Strengthening a Breed

One of the best reasons to get into dog breeding in the first place is that you can strengthen or improve your current breed. This is because many specific diseases affect specific breeds. Many breeders want to selectively breed dogs to eliminate undesirable traits like deafness, blindness a short lifespan of a dog breed. This is also called selective breeding and has been in practice for thousands of years. Also, dogs that are used for therapy, police, military etc are bred selectively and hence possess desirable traits.

  • Healthy Dogs

This is another great reason to breed dogs. Unlike puppy mills or backyard breeders, responsible dog breeders take extra care of their dog’s health. They spend weeks and months researching for the best possible mate for their dog’s breeding. Looks are certainly important, but it is not the important factor a dog breeder will look for. They want to breed healthy dogs that will stay as long as possible with their new dog parents.

  • Preserving the Breed

If you were to ask all those who are involved in the anti-dog breeding movement the question, “What will happen to existing dog breeds”, probably none will offer a proper answer to this question. With dog breeding, you have the power to now save a specific breed from going extinct. Globally, there are 400 recognised breeds and some are close to extinction. Responsible dog breeders play a key role in saving the endangered breeds.

  • Surround Yourself With Dog Love

One of the special reasons to breed dogs is that you will be surrounded by the love and affection of dogs. Dogs are one of the most joyful creatures you can be with and they also offer a therapeutic effect. Normally, a dog breeder is surrounded by dogs at all times and it plays a key role in relieving stress and anxiety. Although it takes a certain amount of time and money to take care of these dogs, the joy and fun they provide you make all of it worth it.

In Brief,

If you are a dog lover or a devoted owner who loves the “doggy lifestyle” then you might want to enjoy the perks of being a dog breeder. You will get a chance to interact with like-minded people, visit dog shows, understand genetics, and above all, provide puppies to many first-time dog owners. There is nothing more joyful than watching the reaction of a family receiving their first puppy.
