I had a great question PM'd to me by a forum member last night...who wanted it put out for discussion.
Well, PP trainers and owners, what do you think?Back in the 80's, folks with money and an interest in Schutzhund (but no interest in training for Schutzhund) would purchase titled dogs. It seemed like these owners lacked the ability to maintain these dogs, and the dogs neither respected nor worked for them.
It seems like there are a ton of people offering up PP trained dogs for sale to people with money. What I'm wondering is...what kinds of qualifications do trainers require of these buyers? Are there "rules" about to whom you do and do not sell these dogs? Are these rules ignored by less ethical PP trainers, and what are some of the consequences of this?
