Over the last decade, Canarian Bull Kennel members have lost over $40,000 to unethical breeders selling us dogs that couldn’t be bred without sending a replacement. All they really care about is puppy sales and there’s no real way to keep them honest. Kennels and clubs continue to do business with unethical breeders so the low quality puppy mill machine keeps turning. This became so discouraging that the original members quit and we’re now onto to the next generation, led by me.
Now, the good news. While learning the hard way, I began to see some problems with the current model of business in the breeder world. Kennels aren’t taking the time to continue their education so they conduct themselves in an extremely outdated manner and there’s nothing to really push them to learn, because the cool kids aren’t confronted often and don’t have much competition. This makes it almost impossible to educate puppy customers and other kennels on how to lower the probability of environmental issues that harm the breed, which sometimes get confused as genetic issues.
I’m constantly studying and talking to experts in order to provide a healthier puppy, which betters the breed through action. I’m far from an expert myself but I’m humble enough to listen to those who truly know what they’re talking about. This enables me to be able to pass this information on to the puppy customer, so they don’t ruin the health of their puppy. Good intentions mean nothing without good results when it come to an animal’s life.
In addition to the education, we offer two levels of health guarantees since every litter produces both breed and pet quality puppies. With pet quality puppies, meaning that they don’t live up to the breed standard and shouldn’t be bred, we will replace a dog within the first two years of life if it has a genetic issue that doesn’t allow it to live the life of a normal dog.
With breed quality dogs, meaning they fit the standard for breeding purposes and can be bred if the owner chooses to, we offer a higher level of protection to back our higher price. Should someone buy a breed quality dog and that dog cannot be bred or reproduce, for some genetic reason, we will let the owner keep the dog and send them another breed quality dog at no cost besides shipping.
Our customers are passionate about the quality of our breeding program and we want to show our appreciation by doing all we can to protect their purchase. Plus, we prefer to lead rather than follow and the industry needs a wake up call. Help us set a new standard for the breeding industry so the health of the breed increases and unethical kennels are forced to shut down or follow our lead.
