Based on the above quote, I will share with you a bit of knowledge. The breeders of great dogs (even if they aren't going the "limited route") will not be very receptive to your rationale for buying a pup. Call Larry or Anna Calvert at Jazztime Retrievers and tell them up front "I just want a good genetic dog so I can pup her out one time." Requests like this are the reason some breeders use the limited registration route. Then again there are often litters in the Entry Express classifieds that will end up with "one more pup to sell...at a "reduced price" with good genetics. However, if you want to get your "foot in the door" it might be wise to simply stick with "I will hunt with this dog."
