Dog Trainer - Should I Breed My Dog
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

So your love and affection for a particular type of dog has led you down the path to wanting to become a dog breeder. You have probably already decided on the breed of dog that you intend to use but are not sure on exactly when to start the breeding process.

As a general rule of thumb the female dog reaches a point 'on heat' six months into the year. This is not an exact science, for some dogs it will be on seven months and in rare cases it can be up to eight months. No matter when it starts exactly six months later the dog will be on heat again. Do not start to breed the female on their first ever cycle - this is very important. Most professional breeders will always wait until at least after the third cycle of being on heat to start their breeding. You should also get some sort of professional advice ( vet advice ) when you think the dog is ready to breed, just because it has reached the age of one and a half years does not necessarily mean the dog is ready to breed.

Obviously, you will need to choose a male dog for the breeding process so choose well. The male dog as well as the female dog must be at top level of health. Make sure they have been fed the correct additive free food and they have both had all their vet's injections. Consult your vet whenever you are even slightly unsure about something.

When a female starts to lick herself more often than she normally does this could well be an indication that it is about time for the dog to breed. Her eating habits may also change when nearing this period. There is a sign of being ready is termed as 'flagging' - this involves close inspection of the females relationship with her tail straying to one side.

If you do begin to see changes in the female dogs personality it would be a good time to check the dogs fertility level. This should be done by a vet basically taking some blood tests. After about the twelfth day of the female dog bleeding she should be about ready for breeding. This is not a rule of thumb so be sure first - if she begins to stand still whenever the male is about then things are probably ready to be put into motion.
