Janet Sumner, Washington 6/28/2014 7:59:53 AM Co-owners are needed when campaigning a dog. It is simply a fact of life. Ads, travel, handling fees....most people cannot afford to do it on their own. Easily 10 or $20,000 for a year. I have co-owners on my dogs because we are friends and I can keep an older friend "active" in my breed. More gift then anything.In almost 20 years I have had 2 go bad....certainly not enough to keep me from doing it....just have to "adjust" the contract, just like I have adjusted, over the years, my buyers contract.
