Contacting and visiting

Making Contact

Each breeder you contact probably has several dogs to clean up after, groom, train, exercise, play with, and cuddle. She probably has a family, friends, work, and other obligations. For a responsible hobby breeder, breeding is exactly that—a hobby. It's not a business in the conventional sense, and she's not “on call” for you 24/7.

An important fact to keep in mind is that alimony (sometimes called separation maintenance) is tax deductible for the person paying and considered taxable income for the person getting it. Child support payments, on the other hand, are neither tax deductible nor considered as taxable income.
