PICK OF THE LITTER ???

After we had fun with RCK's funny thread, I noticed the bully breeder has different prices for each different picks of the litter. I wanted to know how this is determined. can they evaluate a pup for the way it will turn out when it gets older? My 2nd question about pick of the litter is who decides which 1 is 1st pick? the buyer? or the breeder?

Good Question Dave .. I have always noticed the 1st pick of the litter is always more expensive with a lot of the breeders I have seen .. And so on and so fourth ... I would be curious how a breeder determines 1st pick , 2nd pick, 3rd pick, ect ... What criteria are you breeder's using to determine the picks if the litter

The Breeder decides the picks. And a lot of breeders will have different prices for different picks. Pick 1 is supposed to be a better quality dog than say pick 5. Often the lower picks will be sold on pet contracts with a spay/neuter requirement.

Some breeders just charge a set amount for all the puppies regardless of the pick and don't require spay/neuters for the pet quality dogs.

Picks generally aren't made until somewhere between 6-8weeks so the breeder can get an idea of how the dog is developing. I don't know that there is a set way to evauluate I think it depends on what the breeder is breeding for, working dog or conformation. Or in the case of irresponsible breeders...they will pick based on color. IE first pick dog has the most blue on it.

So pretty much its up to the breeder to make the picks lol

Pick of litter is the one you pick hehe. I had pick of my litter being Bumble Bee she has great conformation, beautiful color and very very nice attitude that being my pick of litter. We took Optimus Prime as Male pick of litter, and now that we may put him up for sale he is still the same price as everyone else. I have two prices Show-working price $550-$650 Depending on parents and Pet quality $100-$150 depending on why I consider it pet quality. You will see breeders charging more for "pick of litter" because it has the nicest color lol Blues this much, Less for black ect ect... But it can vary from breeder to breeder. To me pick of litter is your pick of litter nothing more nothing less.

For example Faith was Laura pick of litter. Out of the whole litter thats the one she saw as best.

pick of the litter is decided by the buyer, a good breeder often times will try to steer you in the direction of the best pup but on the flip side you get dishonest breeders who mislead you so you can pick a pup of lesser quality so that they can keep the best pup. at the end of the day you are responsible for that pick after all you payed extra for it. no breeder should pick the pup for you, he/she should only make suggestion and ultimately you decide.

Its old enough to make a good guess. Personally I haven't had a litter or pits, my family used to breed Akitas and we always made picks right about 7 weeks.

YOu can get a good gist of what the bite will looking like, how they will stand, wether they will be easty westy or not, but with Pit bulls you also breed for a working dog. So again it depends on what you are looking for.

Like with Combat I wanted a good pull dog, and while I liked the look of the other dog Steph turned me onto Combat because his drive was better and the other dog was sorta lazy and I couldn't be happier with him. Conformational wise he is a little easty westy and has a slight underbite but his canines still sissor (which is what ADBA looks for) but again...he's my pull dog

So having the parents on premisis would be a big part of the buyer being able to make a good choice based on the parents?

I make pick of the litter as the breeder and what this means is this pup has the over all best structure of all the other pups (my pick of the litter is not usually a higher price it's usually staying here or being co owned out). What I use to base the prices of my litters is pedigree, titles, health testing etc. Dogs I have put more into I price pups higher (my pet price is always the same unless I drop the price). I have nor ever will sell a pup at more then I myself is willing to pay with that being said my prices top out at 1500 (most times that includes shipping and ear crop along with micro chipping). My average price though is usually 500, I'm not trying to get rich off my dogs and whatever I take in goes right back to them either up grading their living area, going to more shows etc... To this date I've giving away (even if they are co owned out) more pups then I've sold. I originally didn't charge a co own fee well since I've had at least 5 dogs have something unfortunate happen from either being screwed over on what the agreement was to them going missing or dying so over the years I screen a lot more and I also now charge a co own fee most of the time (you simply can't be nice to some people). I have a big heart and some times it tends to bite me in my butt...

i dont agree with this simply because what i think the 1st pick is may be different from what you think it is. what you are looking for in pup may not be what the buyer is looking for. the way i am looking at it is, if im paying for a pup i will pick it, i would like your input but ultimately it is my choice. jmo

I haven't had litter yet but the breeder we got our pups from charged everyone the same price even though he had a pick. He did have a pick though. He said it would have been the one he would have kept.

Just because I deem a pup pick of the litter doesn't mean who ever is buying a pup has to pick that pup lol that is why i said as the breeder that is how "I" pick my pup now if I sold first pick or whatever pick that person picks what he/she likes (which you will most likely never see my first pick sold it is usually co-owned or kept here) different people interpret things differently I think you just misunderstood what I was. When a person is buying a pup they get to pick what depending on which pick they do have. For instance I usually reserve first through fourth picks so if you buy third pick then you get to pick from what is left after the first two picks have chosen their pups.

Okay let me explain this a little better.

When Pulldawg had their litter They had first pick male, I had second pick, MadBood had third, ect ect.

This meant Pulldawg got to pick their pup first and decide which one they wanted, Then I got to pick WHICHEVER male pup I wanted second, there wasn't a particular pup prenamed 'pick 2' it just meant I got second pick of all the males, then MadBood got third pick, ect ect

I definatly relied on Steph to help me out since they know what to look for in a pulling dog as you should be able to with ANY reputable breeder. Since a reputable breeder will have had a clear picture of what they want from a breeding they should know what to look for.
