Responsible dog breeders can play a vital role in the effort to help stop puppy mills by offering perspective and guidance on the proper ways to care for breeding dogs and puppies, while educating prospective buyers about the importance of humane care. A responsible dog breeder will run various amounts of health tests to make sure your new puppy is healthy. They will also have an extensive application process to ensure the right applicant is being chosen to be the owner of a new dog.
For too long, there has been a perceived rift between the responsible dog breeding community and the animal welfare community. This rift has been exploited by puppy mills and all those who profit from the substandard, commercial dog breeding community. It is time for us to stand together against this cruel industry.
