Breeding tips

Postby orion445 » Wed Aug 13, 2008 6:08 pm

My girl is 8 months old now and I might breed her one time when the time is right. The reason that I might do it is because a Co worker and good friend of mine lost his two boys one right after the other. Both dogs were very close to him and his son and were treated like they were children.
I buried both his dogs for them because they were very upset and hurt
by it. As a gift to them I would like to give them a puppy since they like my dog so much. I am not a breeder, I am just thinking about it.
I don't want to put my girl through anything and might just buy them a
puppy to replace his dog.

You're wise to not put your girl through anything. There are way more reasons to avoid breeding, and there are thousands of wonderful puppies and dogs dying in shelters every day for the lack of a good home.

Sounds like a better idea. And how about instead of spending money to raise a large litter, just get her spayed instead, to cut down on costs???

That is good--- that's what I'd suggest too, instead of adding to pet homelessness, you are doing something about it!! :thumbsup:

btw it IS a very good time to have your girl spayed, if you hurry you can avoid her 1st heat!

Will getting her spayed have an effect on her physical development?

It will lessen her risks of mammary tumors and eliminate the chances of uterine infections and cancers.

No, it won't take anything away.
If you want your dog to be muscular, you have to exercise her on a regular workout schedule and give her a good diet. :thumbsup:

A Uterus has nothing to do with the outside of the dog :)

Please consider adoption before buying puppies from a byb.

If you're worried about her development, get her spayed when she's around a year to a year and a half just to be safe. Just make sure you keep her away from the boys in the meantime.
