So you breed dogs in order to pay your bills and be able to breed more dogs????As for puppy price. Never EVER have a sold a PET for $2500. My average pets are $1300 & $1500. Sometimes if I have a lot of money invested in a certain litter with the parents showing titles then I will charge $1800. Price is based on the individual breedings. NOT just a whatever price. This is about being able to recoup my showing costs and the money I make goes back into the breed. The little money I make on my pups pays for our bills associated with the dogs. For instance, last month my electric bill to keep my basement warm for my dogs was $844. I have proof of that if someone doesnt believe me. The puppy money paid that bill.
Really? Is that how you read that? Interesting. I believe I show my dogs too. Basically, I breed to create Champions..I breed to BETTER the breed.....I work hard to convince the people that call me looking for ROCKWILER to breed, NOT TO BREED...I try to help people do things the right way....I place about 1/3 of my litters into show homes...I breed to support my showing and for them to support themselves. I am sorry but if you see a problem with that....you are taking it the WRONG way. There are bigger fish to fry and unfortunately for YOU i am not one of them. You can twist my words or anything you see on my website any way you want. Ive said who I am and what Im about.So you breed dogs in order to pay your bills and be able to breed more dogs????
Thanks for coming on, it's always nice to hear the other side respond. Welcome to the site KrystalOh, as for the PICK OF THE LITTER thing....I make the final decision on who gets WHAT dog. We do a PICKING ORDER...and I evaluate each puppy and decide on a few that a home can choose from. I have my puppies evaluated by my handler as well because I believe it is important to have 2 sets of eyes on a litter. We do not just throw any dog with any person. We have an application and I make notes on the application on what kind fo puppy would be best suited for each person. I also have turned down many people in the past to get a dog from me. I am NOT a rottweiler super market and you WILL need permission to own one of my babies. --- As for drive, we breed for the total Rottweiler. We do not breed for something that is OVERKILL in one area. My puppies have gone out and done Schutzhund, herding, carting, obedience, therapy, and of course conformation. We also have a temperament guarantee in our contract that if for any reason a puppy didnt turn out in temperament they can come back for a full replacement.
Im sorry, but my Kennel just does not compare with a lot of the BS kennels out there. We have worked hard to make it a point to surpass that point and are ALWAYS striving to do better and better.
Not twisting words at all - simply bring out a simple fact that you your self stated - you breed to pay your bills...you breed to support your showing - same thing.I breed to support my showing and for them to support themselves.
I am sorry but if you see a problem with that....you are taking it the WRONG way. There are bigger fish to fry and unfortunately for YOU i am not one of them.
Three of my four dogs were adopted from rescue groups. I paid a $175 adoption 'donation' for Ben, which BARELY covered his veterinary care, including neuter. Baron failed his second evaluation for the rescue (passed the fist one done by my husband and myself) and my husband wanted to adopt him, so we essentially got him for 'free' except for the gas for transporting him and small fee WE paid to get him out of the shelter. Jayda was returned to the rescue and she had been our foster, so we were able to adopt her.If you ever paid for a dog, which im assuming you you did.....or you rescued or whatever.......so anyway...if you EVER PAID for a dog/puppy, you in fact paid someones bills. What do you think they did with the money? Donated it? So did you tell the breeders you bought from they better not put that money into the showing of their dogs, or they better not allocate some of that money to pay an electric bill? Really? Does that sound logical?
Tell me then, why if what you are saying is right...why did you have to pay for a dog at all.....
Ive received many private emails about you being a very active forum member who tends to throw kennels you've never even heard of under the bus. I suggest you not even judge a breeder from their website, but rather pick up a phone and talk to them.
I happen to know about 7 off the top of my head. It's sickening and it sad. There is one north of St Louis that has anywhere from 4-5 litters on the ground at one time and all his dogs are euro imports. YuckI can name a puppy mill in Tn that bought Euro champions just to make their website look good. Said puppy mill was kicked out of Florida many years ago & still has law suits against them if they ever return to Fl.
