I agree with everything everyone has posted. I co-own one of my dogs with her breeder, and have no complaints. Actually, her breeder as acted as a mentor for me in this crazy dog world. She has introduced me to others who have taught me great amounts of information. In my case, I have taken an interest in not only obedience showing, but conformation showing, and have done some myself. My dog is mine, and I have good friendship with the breeder.
I feel that it is important with co-ownerships for those involved to have a good friendship. If you feel that this can not happen, then I would not go through with this. As long as this dog is in your life, this breeder will also be. Like others posted, you have to be okay with someone else having a say about your dog.
