If a breeder doesn't think his or her pups are worth breeding what does that say about their confidence in the quality they're producing?
Responsible breeders usually like to have some say in who their bitches are bred to. Sometimes pet owners don't know much about pedigrees or good breeding practices. Not saying that's the case here. I don't see anything wrong with a breeder requiring a dog sold as a pet to be spayed or neutered. Maybe the breeder didn't want certain traits passed on. Those traits may be harmless and meaningless to the average pet owner but important to a breeder. Not saying that is this breeders motivation but just saying that it's not always black and white.

@seashoreduck please don't think I'm judging your aunt, shes probably just doing it because everyone else does.

I get it, I just think the judgment shouldn't be so harsh. She's doing it because the small chance that it harms the dog psychologically is much less than the chance that the dog goes into heat, accidentally gets out, and gets pregnant far, far too young. Most people, again even really responsible owners, don't understand the crazy powers of a dog in heat. Many don't have the resources to handle a dog in heat. I would hate to forbid a dog to go to a responsible owner simply because they didn't want to deal with heat. In my view it should be self-selecting responsible owners who choose to do things a different way, not everyone given the chance. I guess I don't trust people that much.

@seashoreduck , delayed spaying has very little to do with the mental well being, it's mostly concerning joint health, especially in high risk breeds, and sport/work dogs.

I was sent this wonderful article from my breeder when I was asking her about when I should spay Aayla.

http://www.naiaonline.org/pdfs/LongT...uterInDogs.pdf

I have decided to spay Aayla after a year per my breeders request. She said (as an aussie judge) that she could physically tell the differences between dogs altered too early and those that waited. For health and soundness reasons she requested I wait.

Hey everyone! So the breeder e-mailed me back today and let me know that she is fine with waiting to spay, and was very excited about the fact we have dog sport plans. She basically said send the papers along when you get it done, and she'll send us the AKC papers. Easy peasy, good communication is clearly key.
