Dog Breeding interview on The Dog Show with Julie Forbes

The Dog Show with Julie ForbesI had an interesting interview yesterday with Julie Forbes on The Dog Show,. One of the topics we discussed at length was dog breeding in the dog show community. I have met many a breeder in my travels to numerous dog shows. But I am not a breeder and I don’t intend to be.

This is my choice because I would never be able to part with a puppy, I’m sure! However I must say I respect the breeders I have met who do their best to breed healthy, stable, beautiful dogs. This is a provocative topic to be sure.

What do you think? By the way, Julie loved my book!
