    DefaultSport Mixes???

    There are breeders out there that breed "SPorts Mix" dogs? Dogs that are mixed and bred specifically to do well in agility, dock diving, etc....
    I had no idea...

    Borderstaffys
    Kool-whips
    BC/whippets (Bippets)
    Border Terrier x Malinois

    So...more people making a whole lot of money breeding mutts.
    And there are alot of people buying them apparently-it's seems to have become a big business.

    This is especially prevalent in our area with flyball dogs. Whats worse is they get results, some of these crazy crosses can post times well under 4 seconds, thus ensuring that more and more are bred.

    I just don't know how they're so common. These dogs are NOT pets, they are ridiculously high drive athletes, not exactly marketable to the general population in the slightest.

    I have heard of that with agility, flyable and sled dogs, definitely high energy performance events.

    Yes...it happens. People are crossing border collies with small breed dogs to be able to run at shorter jump heights in agility.

    I've been keeping quiet on that thread. I have no problem breeding mixed breeds for working- real herding (as in farm/ranch), hunting, sled dogs, etc. But intentionaly breeding mixes for sport events is pure BS in my opinion. There's enough mixed breeds looking for homes already. I as much as I think it's fantastic that mixed breeds can now compete in AKC performance events, I am a little concerned that people are going to start intentionaly breeding mixes for that, too.

    Yeah, I saw you there in the thread...you were remarkably restrained...LOL
    There are breeders out there breeding intentionally for sport mixes. Apparently it's quite popular or becoming quite popular in CA.

    I piped in to the thread with a thought...interesting to see how they take my comment.

    I had a reply all typed out about breeding for work vs sport, but never hit post.

    I really don't see a difference between "sport mixes" and "designer breeds".
