I don't agree with commercial breeding. For a few reasons, with that number of dogs, it is impossible to give them all of the attention, socialization, and excercise they need! Putting them out in a yard for an hour or two a day is not proper exercise in my opinion. As for the USDA inspecting with an "iron fist", I recently watched a documentary on pm and they raided a kennel that had just a few weeks earlier been inspected by the USDA, so so much for that. Dogs are companion animals and they crave human interaction. It's not fair to lock them in a kennel all day. And with how many puppies they churn out do you really think they take the time or it's even possible for them to properly socialize every one of them? If you do it baffles me as to how, I understand that they have staff. I'm just saying the dog to people ratio doesn't provide time to fill every dogs individual needs.
