The definition of "breeding stock is as follows : animals kept SPECIFICALLY for breeding.
My dogs are first and foremost family members. They have fee range of the house and yard which is just shy of 5 acres. They sleep with us, eat with us, watch tv with us, travel with us, go on hikes and walks, play ball in the back yard and are treated like they are my children.
I am not a kennel but a home where my dogs are cared for physically, emotionally,and mentally. They are never crated, unless at a dog show or when they are puppies. They are fed special diets of real meat and vegetables and fruits along with their kibble.
I don't rehome my dogs once they are done breeding or can't breed for some reason . They are my dogs and my family no matter what.
