Storm holds only a CS.

Dang! My two won't ever get their CS. That's really pathetic, considering that one of them can actually put her head on the counter, negating any need for actually doing any jumping.

A puppy farm is a place where puppies are produced as a cash crop - it can be a mill or a dealer/broker.

Thank you for the response.

I just don't get what you're saying. Is it wrong to breed dogs for sale?? Where do they come from if you don't breed them?
It is wrong to breed dogs with no consideration for the welfare of these dogs or their offspring.
Any litter should be bred to be the best possible, a breeder should try & produce the best they can. This includes considering the breed standard, temperament, health & available, suitable homes!
I always advise people looking to buy a puppy to ask which one the breeder is keeping - if the breeder didn't PLAN to keep one to walk away.. ( the breeder may have a good reason for not keeping one - no bitches or mismarks etc but they should have hoped for "the one" )
There will still be puppies that don't quite make the grade available for pets - reared as well as possible with everything possible ( health checks & studied pedigrees ) being done so that they have happy & healthy lives in appropriate homes.
There is no reason for puppies to be moved away from their "nest" or birthplace for sale - unless it is for the instant gratification of an uneducated puppy buyer.
Dogs bred for purely for sale just need to look cute to pull in a sucker! What do you need to be a suitable owner? Oh yes, money!

These poor puppies were probably born in cages to bitches who were bred every heat ;- more puppies = more money.

My Springer had a CSI, which requires that the dog demonstrate its ability to go from floor to counter with a four-footed jump.

easy peasy, sez harriet. one boing and Bob's your uncle!
I understand that a dog can obtain a CSX, but only if it extracts the hot dog buns from the bag and then replaces the bag in its original condition on the counter with the twistie back on.

or, alternately, fridge-top surfing. thankfully, the fridge in this house is nowhere near the counter top. i can once again safely store puppy cookies and my Cheerios up there.

I believe Lucy would come close to earning her CSX. Does

Kizzi once consumed two beef livers coolng on the stove and the water around them without ever rattling the pan (I was in the next room reading).

Gunny on the other hand, can push out chairs to get on to the table, where she can then leap to the counters.
She has done this for whole wheat flour (she won't eat the regular fould but the whole wheat...).
Last time we were in a hotel room in five minutes she had her head in the little fridge trying to select her treat (but it opens so easy!).

We usually put all food up on the thing about the coat rack in hotels, and Gunny and my friend's dog will circle under it sniffing and standing on their hind legs like a pair of starved bears.
Food motivation is very powerful.

How about a dog who removes a hamburger bun from a plate on the table with a human three feet away, carefully conceals the entire bun in his mouth, walks past the human and into the other room out of sight before eating the bun?
