alligande Posted February 16, 2014 Report Share Posted February 16, 2014 I am genuinely curious about this, after reading about breeding for sports and various threads of people looking for working bred dogs who want breeders who provide early socialization activities. What do these provide the dog? My only puppy I got as a 4 month old rescue who was born in a barn, and he has grown into a great dog, not perfect he can be a little unsure of himself but by border collie standards he is very sane and I could not have asked for a better agility partner he is every thing and more I could have wanted. I have had a number of young fosters and all were growing into fine young dogs and had no early socialization. I am sure there are many different opinions on this, but I am really am just curious, in the next couple of years I will be looking for a puppy and for the first time I think I will not be rescuing as we most likely we will be in Europe and I will need a registered dog to compete fully in agility.
