question on breeding?

is it wrong if you have 2 dogs male and female living together and you breed them? they are family pets and arent breed all the time non stop, once a year or less. The dogs are well looked after and one of the owners seemed to be sad giving away the puppie. I got my dog of them. do you have to be a professional dog breeder? cause im confused, some people seem to think its wrong but is they are family pets and have a litter together then isnt it ok? if you are professional do you have some type of papers saying so? the owner seemed to know about the health of the dogs and knew the grandfather

It's not OK to breed family pets when there are thousands of dogs are in shelters without a home. Breeding places your pets at risk - there can be many complications of pregnancy that can result in a C-section or can even kill the mother or pups. Finally pets are usually not tested for their potential to pass genetic... More

It's not wrong, per say, but they don't know what they're doing. They are contributing to pet overpopulation - which isn't good. I believe you should get pups from a professional breeder or from rescue org, if you are able. I also believe responsible pet owners have their pets spayed or neutered asap and never allow... More

In my opinion, it's not ok. It's not horrible, but it doesn't make it ok in my book. I feel that with all the pet quality dogs sitting in shelters right now, people shouldn't be breeding for more pet quality puppies out of their family pets... More

No, it isn't OK to breed pets. Dogs should be bred ONLY to better their breed. They need to be shown first to prove they are worthy & health tested to ensure genetic defects are not passed to their offspring. Not all congenital defects are apparent right away, and could endanger a dog's health later in life. There are... More

its not wrong, as much as its immoral. IF the people did all the proper health tests, temperament tests, and the dogs were exceptional animals, they were of proper age, and ability. Then there was nothing wrong. If they just got 2 dogs and bred them for the heck of it just cause they could. Then they are not listening... More

It's not really ok. You don't say what breed these dogs are or how much these people charge for the pups or how old the dogs are. It isn't fair to breed from a dog every year. Abandoned dogs are a huge problem both here and in the US so wherever you're from it's probably a problem. On top of that more and more... More
