Missouri produces more puppies for pet shops than any other state. In fact, they produce almost as many puppies as all other states combined. One of the reasons that Missouri puppy mills flourish is that they are endorsed and promoted by the Missouri Department of Agriculture. You can read all about the Missouri Blue Ribbon Kennel Program on the Missouri Department of Agriculture’s website at this URL. www.mda.mo.gov Now, an exclusive from PetShopPuppies, Inc., go inside a Missouri Blue Ribbon Kennel, “Missouri’s Elite Puppy Program,” and see what it means to be the best! Note: While we commend the Blue Ribbon Kennels for exceeding industry standards, we think it is important to inform the pet shop customer of the kind of life these dogs live. The cages you will see are where these dogs live 24 hours a day for the rest of their lives. They are never taken out for exercise or interaction with people. Wire floors allow the feces and urine to fall through the cage; automatic feeders allow food to be given to dogs from outside the cage; automatic waterers also allow the dogs to be watered from outside the cage. They must lick a small metal ball repeatedly to release one drop of water at a time. These minimum standards of care make it possible for a breeder to almost completely avoid touching the dogs except 2-3 times a year when they vaccinate/deworm, when they are placing dogs together for breeding and when a female whelps puppies.
