HOBBY DOG BREEDER VS COMMERCIAL BREEDER
Puppy mills, re-named High Volume
Breeders by AKC, tap gloves with show and hobby breeders and it’s a knockout!
Sept 3, 2002 | TheDogPress.com
Barbara J. Andrews, Editor-In-Chief
The odds are hard to beat! AKC’s
High Volume Breeders produce nearly 90% of AKC registered puppies
according to Patti Strand and the HVBC. Show/Hobby
Breeders account for less than about 10% of registrations, even including Performance Dog breeders, i.e. Field Trial,
Water Retrieving, Herding, etc. So, when laying the odds on this
fight, you need to factor in at least 2% "bad” or irresponsible show breeders included in AKC's figures
indicating responsible hobby breeders.
brings us down to less than 10% representing “us”
dedicated breeders who care about health, proper breed type and
temperament. So are you still ready to place your bets? Remember, the tough guys we call Commercial
Breeders are churning out
incredible numbers. I flunked math
but no matter how we run the numbers, it looks like about 90% of all AKC registered puppies come from puppy mills and/or people who only ever bred one
litter and won't do so again. Not very good odds and when you factor in the Animal Rights Advocates,
you know this is not a fair match.
Those Animal Rights advocates fight dirty, carry placards, go to rallies, destroy
laboratories, and let show
dogs out of their crates to be humanely killed on the interstate. They get TV
time to rant about how Rats Have
Rights. We think of them as whackos, fringe elements,
but animal rights activists are worthy opponents who carry a mean left
They might be likened to Muslim extremists in this regard; they can, they have,
and they will hurt us. They are blowing up our institutional skyscraper
along with our Constitutional rights. Those who champion Animal Rights comprise a significant majority of
people who are fighting for breeding laws and
restrictions. And since they help write the laws and wield
enormous political and media power, they carry a powerful "left" hook. You
ready for weigh-in time? Place your bets knowing they outweigh show and
hobby breeders? Sure, why not?
Look Out Show and Hobby Dog Breeders
There's a knockout punch coming from the No-Breeding
section, and a left hook from the Commercial Breeders and the Animal Rights advocates who have teamed up against you!
If there were two bills on the House floor, one that banned breeding
and one that opposed that bill, and your constituents were seated in the back
rows, which legislative action would you support? Okay, that’s a no-brainer. In the one corner, you have Show/Hobby Breeders throwing soft punches at the
Commercial Breeders. We're on the ropes. Wait! Somebody
signal the referee! It is only the first round and already we spotted that low blow!
Trish Kanzler of Siberian Husky fame is
one of the few exhibitors that ever unloaded on me about the Animal
Rights group. She and her mother (an accomplished AKC judge) are extremely well
informed on animal rights. Trish said, "like it or not, the High Volume Breeders are
here to stay and the animal rights people leave them alone..." As an avid Iditarod fan
(world-famous sled dog race) who races her dogs, Trish knows who is leading the race.,,
We must stop wasting our energies on the wrong
enemy. We better put on the gloves or however you want to characterize it and
do our best to defeat Animal Rights. Sure,
the odds aren't good what with AKC refereeing. Perhaps we should just take up
knitting as a hobby and quit messing with the dog sport.
Or we could lay down our preconceived notions and pick up our
brains for that is the one weapon we must use if we are to succeed in
this battle! When someone asks “what’s your position?” on this or that,
refer them to the objective reporting done by TheDogPress and to TheDogPlace.org Legislative section
or let them in on some Instant Information on ii Maurice Strong, HSUS & Agenda-21,
then adjust your gloves and face the forces across the ring.
