    So that is.. out of every 100 pups, only .0476% of them will become successful stud dogs!

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

He says that he is going to do all the training him self, I asked who he trained under no answer. My question is can you make that kind of money off a stud dog to break even? Could you make your money back on a puppies.
    This is not the reason that I have my dogs.

    Tell him all the power to him and his wonder dog on titles, but he's got several clearances to pass by age 2 also.... it's gotten a whole lot more sophisticated out there!

    Dang! You beat me to it! But I'm pretty sure that it's only 92.4%.
