9) Not Spaying or Neutering
Unless you are a qualified professional expert breeder, you should not have a pet which isn’t spayed or neutered. There are many people who make the mistake of thinking because they have a certain pedigree pet, they are qualified to breed. This is far from the case. These “backyard breeders” are the ones who are compromising the integrity of the purebreds. It’s also one of the reasons cross-breeding different pedigree dogs has become popular. Over-breeding has resulted in the ill-health of many breeds and compromised their standards. Any reputable breeder will withhold the pedigree papers until the new owner provides proof of spay or neutering. A backyard breeder is usually just in it to make money. There is also an epidemic of homeless dogs and cats who end up in overcrowded shelters or worse, they are put to death, because our systems can’t handle the volume of unwanted pets.
