What kind of dog breeding practices do you support? If you breed even one litter you are, by definition a breeder. The question is what kind of breeder are you?
This page is intended to help you think about what it takes to become that caring and responsible breeder. When I first started hearing about truly ethical and responsible breeders I was amazed and very pleased. Considering getting a dog? There are lots of different sources for dogs.
The standards for a good breeder are pretty much the same. When you get a dog you can choose to 1 get one from a shelter or rescue to avoid supporting a breeder you believe is unethical, or 2 carefully select an ethical breeder.
The animal shelters are overrun with dogs produced by irresponsible breeders. I encourage most people to take a chance on dogs from shelters or from rescue. Many, if not most, can make wonderful companions. You can get a wonderful dog at your local shelter.
If, however, you really want a higher degree of predictability of temperament, health, working ability, size, coat and other factors you can increase that by seeking a well-bred dog from a responsible breeder. If you are looking for a dog and want one from an ethical breeder the first step is to decide what qualities make a breeder "ethical".
Ultimately this is something only you can decide, but it helps to know what the possibilities are. And let me make this very clear: Just because someone has a reputation for winning lots of shows, and having beautiful winning dogs does not make them a responsible breeder.
A responsible breeder is judged by their care and concern for their dogs and dogs in general as demonstrated by their breeding decisions. So first explore the qualities of a responsible breeder.

A Code of Ethics is a slippery concept. I also include links to sites that specifically discuss responsible breedingor how to identify a responsible breeder. Below I will provide a description of the most important points of what I think makes a responsible breeder.
Both my dogs are mixed breeds of undetermined heritage. One came from the street, one from the pound. With all those dogs losing their lives in shelters across the USA no one should breed a dog unless the breeder is willing to make every effort to avoid adding to that sad population.
Loving a dog, and loving a breed, is reflected in what you do to benefit and protect the dog and the breed.
Consider the Responsible Breeder A small piece of my own standards: Care about each dog you bring into this world.
Treat it as part of your extended family when you place it in a new home. Take positive steps to make sure the dogs you create will never land in a shelter or in rescue.
Take the time to become familiar with shelter dogs. Volunteer and you will be able to help some dogs and have clear vision about what kinds of dogs end up in the shelter. Make sure that you have homes for the puppies before the sire and dam ever meet.
Require deposits to encourage commitment.You take responsibility for your actions, simply because you have a deep sense of pride in what you're doing.

Remember back to your first few days in a new job. Whether you were an experienced professional or new to the workforce, you quickly discovered that the 'job description' that explained your role was quite different from the reality you faced.
