Default Does Breeding affect your dogs life after???

Hey

I am trying to decide whether i want to breed my doggie in the future, so i am going to be investigating breeding over the next few months - i have a wee question for you guys. The most important thing to me is obviously my dogs health - i would never want to kill her by breeding her, and i would never want to breed her and then she's never the same baby again.

Will my baby change after she has babies? Will her body change? Or will she go back to normal?

Plz help.

Thanks Gilli

Yes they change. They get bigger, just like woman do. Not a lot but they do. And yes it affects their health if you breed them every heat cycle! If your female is in great health and has had a vets approval that she is breed able, then find a really nice male make sure you research his pedigree and genetics before you breed her. And keep in mind that just because she is in great health does not mean she might not have to have a C-section when she Whelps. When she is pregnant make sure you have x-rays done when she is 53 days to make sure those pups will fit through her pelvis. There is alot to breeding more than people think. Talk with your vet he/she can give great advice.

Thanks for the advise, i would always check with my vet before i did anything anyway!

My girl is definetely up to standards the lady who sold her to me only sold her because she couldnt get her on the lead for walking - if only she was more gentle with coco she would have been able to get her to do it.

However she is up to standards as the woman is experienced in showing dogs and she says coco is a very lovely dog i should show her now i have her on the lead - but i dont want to do that.

If i do breed coco I am only going to breed her the one time and then have her neutered. I don't want her becoming ill or anything i just think i should share her beautiful genes with others - and i want to keep one the wee darlings for myself. I will get more pics on my mobile tonight and post them - but it wont let me attach anything here can you tell me how to?

I forgot to answer your question ozzy & lilys mum - she weights 1.75kg at her last weighing when she was 8 months so she is very light at the moment - and i dont believe she has put on any more weight. My mentor suggested that if she stays that weight she would need a smaller boy so there is no complications with having larger pups. But she said i'd have to check with the vet as she's never had a girl as small so she cant be sure - if coco is too light to have pups then fair enough i'm not bothered i've still got her and that's all i care about the most - my wee coco pops

If she stays that weight she shouldnt be bred she is only 3 and a half pounds and good breeders wont breed a bitch unless shes over 4 pounds usually 4 and a half to 5 pound. and at 8 months she might not get any bigger even if bred too a small dog she is still too small too breed

yeah the vet said that she thought coco would only get to 1.9kg at the most and well that's still too light isn't it? I wouldnt breed her if she was too light there is no way i'd ever risk her health she is number one as far as im concerned! So you don't have to worry about me being a bad breeder i would never put an animals life in danger! I love animals!

It would be nice to have her pups one day - but if its not for her its not for her and she can just continue to be the lil princess she is!

When she gets her vacinations next year (she will be 1 year) and i will speak to the vet about it and see what they say and i will also come on here and tell all what the vet said - as i wouldnt go by only their opinion either!
