I always care about my pets.They are good friends for me too.So i do not like to trade my dog at all.Also if I miss him it is highly painful for me.

I guess I wouldn't have to because my dog is already an AKC champion.

No. Often champion dogs have nasty temperaments because of the way they've been bred (not all, im not generalising). My dog is special because of his character and because he isn't perfect for his breed type, a perfect dog would be great to look at but would it have a nice personality/character?

Right you are, that's the main thing that you need to keep in mind.

I've noticed that show dogs often have BETTER temperments because they are bred specifically for their good temperments, as well as health. Show dogs also tend to be better socialized as they "get out" more than your average pet, and have to be used to having strangers touch them and be around other dogs most of their lives. I don't know what champions you have been around, but having shown dogs for nearly 10 years I'm saying this from my own experience. I've met maybe a couple of individual show dogs that didn't have solid temperments, but those are usually eliminated from breeding programs quickly. A breeder's reputation is on the line with every litter and breeding dogs with bad temperments is only going to make the breeder look bad.

i guess it's because there's feelings develop with the dogs overtime and we just couldnt bear to trade them off!

There is no way that I would trade my dogs for a champion dog. I wouldn't even trade if lots of money was involved. My dogs are a part of my family and I will never give them up.

no way! our pets are members of our family! they might as well be our kids! too big of an emotional attachment to just trade away cause another dog has a paper saying its a champion..being a champion isnt what makes a family pet. its their personalities.
