They don't know how to pick out a good breeder or that they should even have to think about that.
    Sharon, This is true. However..... if your stupid enough to spend $1500.oo on a puppy with parents lacking clearances in this day and age with information literally at your fingertips. Well if your gonna be stupid you better be tough !!

    My pool of empathy and sympathy for the "uninformed" got pissed on the floor and dried up !
    Discipline is no excuse for a lack of enthusiasm !!

    John, it's true that information is at our fingertips these days. The problem is in sorting out which information is true. How does one verify it? I mean, most of us cringe when we hear somebody say "well, I read it on the internet". So let's say a potential puppy buyer reads on eight different websites that it's just a matter of time before AKC recognizes Labradoodles as a breed and registers them....and doesn't find much to the contrary...it must be accurate information.

    NoNoNo.....start your own breed! The doodle market is getting too saturated. . Come up with something new and you'll have a lock on the market for a decade or so, and if you play your cards right, you can retire before that market floods.

    A proper bite is a big deal because the dogs have to be able to eat and use their mouths properly. At dog shows you will see judges checking the dogs' mouths. The judge is looking for a proper bite. A dog wtihout a proper bite will be DQ'ed and should not be bred as this is a major fault that should not be passed on. I had one pup that was undershot and I gave the puppy to a friend who just wanted a companion dog with the understanding the bitch would be spayed. The bite eventually corrected but it took 3 years.

    Amazed some one would pay 1500.00 for a poorly bred puppy (lack of clearances from parents.) Yes a Good breeder would have disclosed this right away in hope of finding a good home for one of their puppies. if this was a well bred puppy with good clearances from the parents and a real 1,500.00 pedigree. this puppy would have been a greet deal for many people that have no intension of breeding dogs, Just looking for a well bred, companion / hunting dog at little to no cost. I only pray these people don't need a builder, to build them a new house!
