"Rip Off Report"?

    In researching breeders, even ones I've seen recommended, I have them connected to a "Rip off report". I've never seen the rip off site before but this has happened too many times to not explore it. Does anyone know about this? Are they legitimate filed complaints? Or just disgruntled people causing trouble?
    If it just happened one or twice with a breeder I hadn't heard of I'd dismiss it. But it's more often than that. If you want to know what I'm talking about just google a breeders kennel name and dobermans after it. Or Opinions on... Kennel name? And it may come up.
    Thoughts anyone?
    I will not name the breeders here but if someone wants to see for themselves dm me.

    hrm.... I remember this coming up in another forum I used to go on. The breeder was actually very highly regarded and several people came to her defense in the comments section of the 'complaint.' I guess it's quite expensive to arbitrate a claim so it's still there, unfortunately. I guess you could certainly ask a breeder about it if you're considering them.

    If it's the case I'm thinking of, I got banned from that forum over that deal. :D

    While there are some legitimate complaints out there, I don't know one reputable breeder who hasn't been bad mouthed by someone hiding behind a keyboard. I'd take it with a grain of salt and as stated, ask your own questions if you have concerns.

    I am pretty familiar with the site. I know several of the breeders that have reports against them. Anyone can post just about anything they want for any reason. I know at least one report is true. Some are about a squabble over something stupid. Some are AR extremist that have it in for breeders. While it may be worth investigating further, I would take most of it with a grain of salt.
