Spilt from another thread seems another area of issues :-( These questions are for breeders of NIs. What are your personal ethics when breeding? Do you always ensure parents are hip scored? Do dog have to be a minimum age before breeding? Do you vet potential owners? Do you register your pups anywhere? How many litters would you have from a bitch? Do you breed for looks or look at temperament as more important and health. I feel once we get all the major questions answered then maybe we can move forward with the breed and start to enjoy the positive side :?
