Breeding dogs can create problems


POSTED: Thursday, December 03, 2009

Question: What can I do to convince my boyfriend to stop breeding his dog?

Answer: You can do a little research so that he's aware of how many times a dog should be bred. And focus on the health and well-being of his pet. Invite him to visit or volunteer with you at any shelter to see how many homeless dogs there are that need a home and family. The appeal of the money may be the hardest argument to win so you may have to discuss alternatives for him to earn the income he wants and what to do with puppies he cannot find homes for.
