I am releasing a bunch of fully sessioned animals. Most 100 each with no approval.

Focusing on my dals and tinkering with a poodle show prospect for now. The rest are available, one cocker is waiting to hear back from the breeder. Feel to make an offer on her, if the breeder passes, I will accept first received.

I have the same problem.

My solution so far - start a new one to take the excess!

Works for a while. Now too many dogs in too many kennels!

I'd hire you but I can't be that brutal! I'd regret every single one!

I came close once to actually breeding. It's probably best that I didn't. Lol!

I mean, I can't get rid of THIS one because of the name, and I can't get rid of THAT one because of the color and I can't get rid of THE OTHER one because of... ad infinitum.

If I do it when I have a really bad headache or I'm really stressed, I can be more brutal. Usually I retire them then let them hang out for a few days then outta here.

Tarot:
You pretty much "hit the nail on the head", so the saying goes.

Eventually, desperation forces drastic action and I start culling. I usually get it down to 40 or so then lose momentum. "I'll get the rest of them tomorrow", I tell myself.

When "tomorrow" comes, it's usually back up to 60 or more because of all those youngsters becoming teenagers.

When I finally cross the 30-count line, I breed like crazy, then can't let the babies go, because, because. I still can't cull the oldsters because they've been there for so long and they still have that 10.0 somewhere that I need.

And then the "babies" are teenies and I'm back where I was before. Lol! Never ends!

And every time one of my kennels get low, I think "It's staying like this!" But...

And I tell myself I'm only going to show 1 bitch and 1 dog in each breed at a time, but now I'm showing 3 dogs and 4 bitches in Newfies...

And I keep sessioning more babies.

Someone slap some sense into me please.

They. Are. Not. Real.

Their feelings won't get hurt if you send them off to a loving pet home. Really.

I'm glad I'm not the only one, I can't bear to get rid of puppies and I'm pretending the non show quality ones were bred for obedience!Then I can't part with the oldies ever, especially if they are ones I bred, but I won't let them die, so have to watch carefully as they age and then miraculously a wonderful forever home turns up just at the last minute so they don't die!
Strangely in real life I also kept far too many puppies and never parted with an adult!

Monthly kennel clean up has begun! Come by and get some fun things to show.

Things will come and go as I wait for my Dalmatians to get ready to start showing again.

You never know what you will see for sale.

Did you know?
The figure 8 exercise requires the team to heel in a figure 8 pattern either on or off leash. Generally two of the ring stewards will assist the judge with this exercise by acting as "posts", standing 8 feet apart, that the team walks around to form the loops of the figure 8.
