The other day I stopped in at one of my clients shops, and had my dog crates in the back. We got into conversation about how I had labs, and he had a golden/lab mix. I said very cool and left it at that. He then says ya I want to breed her because I know they would be awesome dogs! Again I just said ya I'm sure they would. Then his reason for knowing they would be great dogs is that he threw 5 treats in his back yard and his dog found all five! Being the nice guy that I am, I nodded my head and said very cool.
Instead of being an ass and drilling him about all the things I do, and health clearance, and on and on I just told him a story. I shared him the story of "Brooke" I believe her akc name is Citori's Accept no Substitue and how they almost lost her to put a little 2nd thought in his mind.
How else would one go about dealing with this? I'm not saying I'm better, or my dogs are better. So dont take this the wrong way.. Would most of you just leave it at right on, sounds like a nice dog, or would you say something to change his mind?
