Many hobby breeders are also heavily involved in showing their dogs. My dog came from a hobby breeder that has a litter every couple of years with their dogs that have excelled on the show circuit. They are obsessed with bettering the breed. They do every health test out there and post the results. I think health testing is the easiest way to differentiate a backyard breeder from a hobby breeder.
Some of the health tests that should be done are cerf, hips, patellas, elbows, baer and chic#.
