How did you get started in breeding dogs? I'm totally in love with blackmouth curs after having Zeus, and have been idly thinking of breeding them someday. But I want to be responsible, and not a backyard breeder. I know that besides learning absolutely everything you possibly can about the breed, it involves health tests, good parents, and the ability to take responsiblity for every single puppy. And I know that it is NOT a profit-making venture. But how do you manage to take that first step? Do you find a mentor, or just hold your breath and take the plunge?
