I'm seriously in love with the pap pup I've got in my lap. I'm toying with the idea of breeding (not him!) in 5 or so years. I'm pretty sure that emailing a breeder and saying "Hey, I want to be a breeder too!" is going to be met with I've read a ton of information online, but really some of it seems written by whackadoos. Shows and trials around here are basically non existent...2 hour drives would be "close." Of course, the need for proving any dog I considered breeding would be met, along with patellas, eyes and such. And honestly, I'd probably start by proving/testing a male with and for another breeder to get my feet wet. So...even having a pretty good base of knowledge from reading here and elsewhere online...where do I go from here?
