Hard Cull - kill off pups with disease or unwanted traits / genetic disorders

Soft Cull - spay/neuter, and remove from gene pool (this one's almsot a bit tougher for a breeder to do - how do you force someone to spay/neuter their pet they bought from you - you can't)


Hard cull gets you along faster in a breeding program, and for some pups I'd say it should be necessary (cleft palette, other issues). You also have to think of how comfortable a life the poor pup will have, even if you are able to save it.

No, no, no. They were saying they thought it was a DOUBLE negative. As in if it ain't.



So, you're signature is really being read as: If it is not pit, it is not $hit.

Like everyone else said, cull is killing....I think when you are thinking "mutt" you mean "cur" which i have heard used in that sense too.

This is the best answer! Culling isn't always killing.

sure you can..S/N before it leaves the property.
have a S/N clause in your contract and inforce it.
If they know they have to S/N the pup before they buy it, and agree there should not be a problem.
That's part of choosing good puppy buyers.

someone recently told me you can spay/neuter at 8 weeks, is this possible? I thought it sounded a bit off, but then reading this made me think it's possible too. How would you enforce a spay/neuter contract if the owner is distant? I can't think of a good way you could ensure it gets followed. How would you enforce it?

yes you can S/N as young as 8 weeks.
I ask for a vets certificate, by 6 months saying the dog has been S/N.
if I do not recieve it I go get the dog back...that's what my contract states and that's what i do.

In 30+ years i have only had to do it 4 x..thank goodness.
I am lucky enough to have a lenghty waiting list..which means i have lots of time to get to know my puppy buyers, befoer they get a pup.

Heres an idea as well get the pups fixed at 8 weeks if you are soo scared the person you sold to wont fix it when that is your wishes, your contract , that means you lack trust in them and shouldn't sell to them in the first place. If you trust the person and know they will do what you say then they will be the good pet owner. Dont just sell to get rid of pups. ALL vets here will fix at 8 weeks

Amen. However, if I place a pup that I want spayed/neutered, I will do it myself.

Here is another version of your saying.

Main Entry: pit
Pronunciation: 'pit
Function: noun
Etymology: Middle English, from Old English pytt (akin to Old High German pfuzzi well), from Latin puteus well, pit
1 a (1) : a hole, shaft, or cavity in the ground (2) : MINE (3) : a scooped-out place used for burning something (as charcoal) b : an area often sunken or depressed below the adjacent floor area: as (1) : an enclosure in which animals are made to fight each other (2) : a space at the front of a theater for the orchestra (3) : an area in a securities or commodities exchange in which members trade (as stocks)

Notice is says nothing about a breed of dog. And btw, if you can't tell, I HATE that abbreviation.

You can definately spay/neuter at or before 8 weeks. My friend's APBT was neutered at 6 weeks old and he now weighs 70lbs. he still has a good drive and everything. As long as a dog/pup weighs 2lbs, a vet can safety fix them.

I know with my pomeranian, she was sold to me with a spay contract because she was not show quality and therefore the breeder didn't want her bred. She sent me temp papers with her, which would be replaced with the real papers after recieving a written letter and phone call from my vet stating that he indeed spayed the puppy. So IF I spayed her, she wouldn't have any papers so i wouldn't be able to register the litter either. of course, i spayed her at 4 months old.

I see it like this.. if someone has a problem with purchasing a fixed puppy from you then it's because they want to either show it or breed it or both. If they want to show and or breed a puppy, they have to spend more and get a show quality pup from you. they shouldn't be able to purchase a cheaper pet quality pup and breed it, not only is that BYBing (as they don't intend on showing the dog because it isn't show quality) but i don't see that very fair to the people who spent a good deal more money to purchase a show quality puppy.
