|This information presented
here is for you to decide if you want to breed or not. That choice
is ultimately yours My task here is to just present the information
and leave the decision up to you.
One of the obvious things that
you will find when trying to get started in breeding is LACK of help, but
there are a few pople that will go out of their way to help the novice.
The thing 'they' always want to imply is all the money, time and knowledge
they have used in developing 'their' lines. YES to all three of those
a. It does take an enormous
amount of time
b. can involve a large
c. knowledge is all
important and it is a continuing learning process.
BUT remember, even if
they don't, they all started at the same place you are at.
But my thought is, 'Those who are true Breeders,' also do the most
to help the novice. Not because they buy the puppy, dog, or bitch
from them but because of the opportunity to help guide and impart their
knowledge of breeding and whelping cockers. "SO YOU CAN MAKE YOUR OWN DECISIONS"
I feel that the aim of raising a litter of puppies
is to improve upon the parents or to gather information . But each person
sees the individuals differently. What you look at and see in the
I might not see but I might look and see something
totally different. That is why there is no one kind of cocker.
We each like something a little different.
