All dogs should be provided with age appropriate exercise, nutrition, sunshine and kindness. OBTESA enourages all dog breeders to perform DNA screenings for genetic disease, have their dogs tested for hip dysplasia, and use breed management best practices. The Old-fashioned Black and Tan English Shepherd Association reserves the right to remove or exclude any breeder who does meet our criteria for basic ethical standards and practices.
A Call for Humble Breeders
The Old-fashioned Black and Tan English Shepherd bloodline needs humble breeders. The kind of breeder who understands that the dogs were perfect before he got here and that the bloodline doesn’t need to be adjusted or improved. He understands that the bloodline doesn’t need his name in front of it or his fingerprints all over it. No, the Old-fashioned Black and Tan bloodline needs breeders who know the culture behind these dogs, and who will take the time to learn their history. Line-crossed when needed, for vim and vigor, but always with an eye towards breeding back to the foundation that makes this bloodline what it is.
