Abstract

Dog breeding is a young growing business in which certain sociodemographic characteristics of the people ,has a far long reaching influence on breeding and the choice of dog to be bred. Information was obtained by structured questionnaire issued to the breeders; one hundred and twenty five questionnaires were adequately filled out of two hundred issued out, and was analysed using simple descriptive statistics. Dog breeding is neither dependent on age, sex, nor educational status, to be a dog breeder, one only need to understand the rules of breeding. Our findings show that more males and youths within the age of 10 to 30 years are more involved in breeding. Majority of the breeders has tertiary education qualification which would motivate them to read and study the act of mating specific breeds of dogs for genetic improvement, this we believe should help in learning to acquire more knowledge about dog breeding for better profit.

Key words: Socio-demographic Characteristics, Dog Breeders, Western Nigeria cities, Oyo, Ogun, Lagos.
