Q: Are you a commercial dog breeder?
A: No, we are not commercial breeders and refuse to become one. In order to become a commercial breeder, you must have at least 30 breeding dogs. Being a commercial breeder is just a “fancier” way of being a puppy mill. These breeders will be checked once by the animal control every year. Commercial breeders are establishments of large-scale facilities where dogs are confined in extremely small kennels with little to no exercise or positive human contact. The purpose of a commercial breeder (puppy mill) is to sell the pups for profit through retail pet stores or/and brokers.
