How much can I expect to make
Wed May 31, 2017 23:58

Hi Kayla, the short answer (IMO) is that you will make some money, some years--and you will lose thousands some years. The smaller your program the more difficult it will be to turn a profit. regardless how many litters you have per year there set expenses per year: registration fees, web site, whelping and puppy pens,etc. you can plan for your girls to go into heat every 10 months -- but there is a good chance that they might wait 18 months, or you might breed only to have 0 puppies-- or may have 14 puppies but they all need vet care--or the Mom needs a C-section. In my opinion, Don't Plan to Give Up Your Day Job for at least 5 years.

      To be really honest it cost more to run a good operation than you can expect to make. You have to come into this out of A) extreme love for breeding because this isn't for the faint of heart. B) deep ... more

        Yes, I have been breeding 6-7 years and I agree with everything Kendra has said. Take her advice seriously, she has not overstated the cost at all.
