Hi, was just reading the business idea thread and was interested in raising dogs as a side business. I have been thinking about it for some time and recently bought a female American Water Spaniel that I am hoping to breed. Hunting dogs are our main interest which would require a little more effort than most breeds. I do have a male lined up but am required to have hips and eyes checked first before breeding. I would love to hear from everyone that does this and what the pro's and con's are and any ideas. Also how do you market your dogs to avoid the puppy mill thing? I live pretty far from "money" and would like a strategy in mind going into this. Thanks.
