What I should have said is MH bitch won't bring that much more than a JH in this soft market
Interesting the soft market, yet right now there seems to be so many dams that do not have advanced titles that are being bred to higher level dogs....
I guess the question is do you wait and put a MH on a dam or just elect to breed her at JH. Does the MH guarantee that the pups will be better dogs then the JH dam...no way of proving except in a buyer's beliefs.
I know some folks who will not breed until the dam gets the advanced titles while others get the entry level and start breeding.
Maybe its just a different clientelle that want the advanced dam compared to the one's who look at pedigree without too much weighting on the dam's individual accomplishments.
Guess it gets back to the market and your potential buyer. Some folks are just not going to pay for a MH dam breeding regardless of potential.
Too many questions, too little time.
PS. maybe its not the individual accomplishments that initally attract a buyer but the overall pedigree????
