For you, what is considered acceptable breeding practice and good breeding practice? I've recently noticed some breeders or what a lot of people consider to be good to great dogs do several things. 1. Breed a bitch up to 5 times 2. Breed 5-6 litters in some years 3. Breed back to back heats (not all time time, usually just 2 litters on back to back heats, I've never seen 3) 4. Breed 7-8 yr old bitches Are these practices considered to be acceptable by your standards on breeders that you think are reputable/good? If not, what are your accepted limits for the 4 items points shown above?
