    I was thinking the same thing. When I was "partnering" way back when, we pooled resources. We worked them together and bet together. I never paid, nor was I paid, for work with a partner.
    As far as the amount there is no right or wrong amount. It is what someone is willing to pay. A keep, just like a puppy, is only worth what the buyer is willing to pay. If he is not willing to pay $750 it is not worth $750 to him. Leave it at that. If the next guy kicks the $750, $1000-$1500, then that is exactly what it is worth. It is basic economics. An objects value is determined by the buyer, not the seller. S

    What most fail to realize is this, not all partners start at the beginning together; he was years in prior to meeting me and vice versa. We always felt one keep was better than the other; he has them to fat for me, he says I have them too thin for him. Well, I've never asked him to condition for me!!!!

    For most partners, or 'combines', it is not that one is any better or worse than the next. It is for convenience. A pooling of resources is just not sharing the bet on show night it is sharing the work along the way. As much as it sucks, jobs get in the way of the dogs. When we partnered, I worked rotating 12 hour swing shift, had one on straight third with weekends off and another on straight days with weekends off. We helped each other with the work as well as pooling the $$$ on show night.
    When the original poster used the term friend and partner in the 2nd or 3rd post that is what thru me off. I was thinking we must view partnership differently and not the original subject of 'is $750 a lot to ask'. $750 is not a lot to ask but that also depends on who you are asking. S
  5. I charge nothing, and cover the bet. I need to have seen dog, and know his background. I am confident in my ability, and the dogs I know.

    750$ for a keep seems very low as me and my partner are going way above 1500$ and thats usually a standard bid. Honestly saying if he is not ready to pay that amount i'd say he thinks its not worthy to him and nor does he sees incoming profits in the long term. This is exactly why I recommend those who are here for easier ways to make money to stick to a great number of apps for extra cash to work with rather than operating an vlogg or any other sources that requires allot of time and money.
