    Puppy purchase contracts...reckon how many of these:

    1. Were drafted by an attorney;
    2. Are enforceable;
    3. Contain language that is ambiguous.

    The few that I have viewed contained major legal loopholes. Have any of you EVER been a party to a legal action envolving your written guarantee?

    I'm into my own lines 6 generations now and I still have been known to go back to a stud owner for suggestions on breeding the pup that came from their stud,

    How long is a generation? Just curious.

    I will be glad to furnish to the breeder the names of everyone I have ever bought a pup from. That is fair. I want pups from a breeder that places responsibly. However, I will not buy on limited registration.

    No. She gave me permission to use her kennel name, and sold with full registration. She said that she doesn't like to buy things with strings attached and wouldn't expect other people to either. She also had no problem selling to a guy that knew nothing about the games but wanted the best hunting dog possible.

    John,
    What is the interval between you and your parents? Or you and your children (if you have any kids). That is one GENERATION. For my Labs, that interval is anywhere from 3-7 (at the most) years. So really, 6 generations could be done in 18 yrs here. At most, well, that's not yet determined.

    Yeah, that's what I thought. Just wondered if it's 25 years in people is it 2-3 years for dogs, or 3-7.

    How about 2 to 5? For physiological reasons, I wouldn't favor breeding a girl later than 5; probably prefer around 3. For males, they may not attract attention until they are around 5 and have begun to show their mature capabilities; though some might be precocious and show solid promise earlier.

    I have 8 generations (#8 is 3-1/2 now) ... with the first generation whelped in 1979 ... that would be 34 years ... so each generation works out to be about 4 years. That's only breeding mostly about once/year; sometimes longer between breedings. Might have had more generations, if I had not had to start over with new genes after one litter in 1971. But some failures like that can also factor into the generation span.

    Just wanted to wrap a ribbon around this thread and thank you all for your strongly felt opinions!

    In the original post on this thread I said that I had struggled with this issue in my own mind. I can see both sides presented.

    I believe I will continue to sell puppies with full registrations unless there is a good reason one should not be bred (like a puppy I sold years ago with a limited registration because the vet ophthalmologist found some retinal folds).
