    I fully agree...I've been talking about a breeder's license for years and not getting a lot of interest. But it would solve the problem.

    It wouldn't be elitist or exclusive either. To get the license you would need to take a course - then you pay an annual fee...and maybe need to take a refresher every 5 years to keep your license.

    We're willing to jump through a lot more hoops for a lot less, so I don't see why this can't happen.

    That would weed out most of the backyard breeders...

    And it would be win-win for everyone. Less breeders...less unwanted pets living in dismal conditions or being euthanized...better quality animals...and the county gets more money in it's coffers...

    Wouldn't that be awesome.

    Some places are headed in the right direction. I actually found a new pet store today from which I will purchase all future pets. See my post in the general aquarium section for the low down on their fish.

    I was impressed because they have a document that you can read hanging in the puppy section that explains the program they use to obtain puppies. They certify that all of their puppies are bred and raised in homes and none are obtained from puppy mills.

    They even have contact info for the people that care for the various litters of puppies so you can call them and inquire about how the puppy you are going to purchase behaved in the home environment before weening.

    Did the same thing, saw a tiger oscar got it and soon realised that my tank was way too small. Great fish if you have the right tank. Mine used to swim by my hand when I would clean the tank and I miss the hand feeding
