When the condition is below 20, I use Top Dog Condition Formula, as it does not cause the muscle or coat to drop. If it's a pup under 14 days, I put it on Super Duper Puppy. Once everything is to 20s I move them to Pet House for Adult Dogs. happy :)

Thanks wonder how long I can make it without upgrading. I just seem to notice quite a few standard kennels also maybe having one or 2 basics. Just wondering how long can I stand not to upgrade LOL. Not saying anything bad about premium members having a basic I believe they have them because of a system I have yet to figure out. Can someone help me to know the positive concept of having a basic kennel along with there premium kennels any feedback would be appreciated so I can know what I can do positive with having a basic plus my other kennels in my family accoun

I'm not sure there is a particular benefit for a standard to have a Basic, but they can, just one as was stated. It depends on the user.

I guess they get the first 30 days breeding privilege. They could be adding a premium but taking advantage of the 30 days free. (I think I've done that with most of my additions.)

They could run a Basic as a sessioning/finishing service which keeps a number of Basics engaged (and potentially upgrading eventually.

Ultimately I think, a Basic kennel should have minimal (that doesn't mean "no"wink ;) interaction with the standard in the long term.

This is however, just my opinion. Others may feel differently.

Got logged out in mid-composition.

I just wanted to add that I think having serial-Basics, as in abandoning one and opening another every 30 days, would be considered an abuse of the system.

I have this basic but also have a couple of standards (premium). I have a finishing project in this basic which I find quite engaging and interesting. I finish just one dog of every breed in reverse alphabetical order (so in the end they all appear alphabetically on my Finished dogs list). The challenge is finishing them in this order and no other, and a lot of breeds have close to no exhibitors which makes it really hard. I have fun with it! Never even bred dogs here.

When buying from a premium kennel you could always ask the seller you are interested in buying to put them on a premium feed if their conditions are not all 20s yet. That will help condition your dog much quicker. Once your dogs quality is all 20s you then can switch to Pet House for Adult Dogs happy :)

I have one basic. It's used to finish dogs that I come across. If I see a dog I sold pop on the sales board, sometimes I buy them back in that kennel to finish. After it's done, to the forever home it goes.

Did you know?
The sit for exam is a modified version of the Stand for Exam. It is generally used in novice level classes and requires the handler to order the dog to sit and then to move away from the dog the length of the leash. The judge will then approach the dog and pet the dog's head.
