To some, breeding is a matter of putting two dogs of the same breed together, and boom – you have “purebred dogs”. But for
others, there is so much more to it than that. To a Preservation Breeder, there are four P’s.
Preserve. Protect. Predict. Purpose.
Preservation Breeders pride ourselves on being producers of
predictable, purpose-bred purebred dogs. It comes with hours of thought, careful consideration, scrutiny and discipline. This is a relatively new term to the dog world, but one who’s meaning helps
set good, ethical and responsible breeders apart from the rest.
So, what does this mean for you as a buyer? It means that you can
rest assured knowing they are dedicated to breeding solely for the purpose of preserving and protecting the original purpose. You can know that you are getting a companion that is healthy, of sound
body and mind, and predictable in nature.
Preservation Breeders take the guesswork out of your next dog’s
history, health, predicted size, temperament, and life expectancy. They can do this because they invest time into showing their dogs to make sure they meet the AKC (or their country’s standard). They
take the time to health test as per their breed’s parent club recommendations. They make the hard decisions like taking dogs that aren’t fit for breeding out of their breeding programs. Preservation
breeders stand behind their dogs for the entirety of it’s life, willing to take a dog back for any reason and at any time, if the owner can no longer care for it.
They serve as mentors and teachers throughout the dog’s life as you
navigate dog ownership. And finally, they are honest and forthcoming when it comes to protecting the well-being of every dog they produce and the breed as a whole.
