I am actually in a few breeders groups - more on building ideas, design and maintenance purely for that reason of gaining knowledge and ideas, but it does get infuriating when they are forcing pregnancy on dogs purely for money - and some of the conditions the dogs live in are so bare minimum basic, its disgusting.I think there could be a lot of resentment, breeders have the money to set things up how they want, they also generally sell the pups at 6-8 weeks old, whereas rescue's/shelters generally won't fix before 8 weeks, so there would be that misconnection and what really could the breeders bring to the table that the wealth of experienced animal welfare world couldn't. The animal welfare world deal with emergency situations, are used to helping each other out, are used to dealing with orphans, mums that abandon and all the not so simple situations that probably most breeders never deal of.Anything to bring people together is a good idea - but what if you start this group and after a few months or so there starts to be conflict, have you got the time to deal with it - of course there can be conflict in any group - but I do feel for the majority - breeders and rescue/shelters are on opposite ends of the spectrum with totally different mindsets, I wouldn't welcome breeders into a group I set up - I feel if I have a question or need help the animal welfare world is more than equipped, willing and experienced to help - more so these days with forums like this and all the large organizations, foundations that all work so hard to do what is right for the animals that humans have failed.
