Pure Breeds, Mixed Breeds & Designer Dogs

Kate Abbott, Petra Burke & Liz Palika  on Pet Life Radio

Petra, Kate and I have been seeing an increasing number of designer dogs (or breeds) in our classes. Although we don’t have a problem with mixed breeds dogs; we’ve all owned mixed breeds, we do have a problem when the new owners of these dogs have unrealistic expectations. I also feel that people are paying way too much money for these mixed breed dogs; especially when there are so many in the local shelters and humane societies who can be adopted for very reasonable prices. Tune in and listen as we discuss what a pure breed is, what these designer breeds are and some of our thoughts on the subject.
