Breeders generally work in their own home or on their own farm. Most breeders own large areas of land that are conducive to raising animals. Some small-scale breeders choose to mate and raise the animals inside their own house. Other small-scale breeders keep their animals outdoors. Most large-scale breeding operations have dedicated barns and living areas for their animals.
This means that most breeders live and work in rural areas. However, some small-scale breeders may choose to live and work in urban and suburban areas. Most breeders report that breeding is not their only occupation. Many breeders also own agricultural farms, or go to work during the day in an unrelated job. Most breeders also report that their whole family is involved in the breeding process. This is due to the fact that the majority of breeders perform their work in their own home.
The workplaces of breeders are just as varied as the breeders themselves. Where a breeder works depends greatly on the area of the country they live in and what type of animal they are choosing to breed. For example, a person who breeds horses will need a large horse farm to run their operation. However, a person who breeds pet snakes may be able to run their business completely out of a city apartment.
