No i do not plan to breed again while next year, just that my boy is very interested in both my girls, must be the spring air, i'll just keep an eye on him, they should not come into season at least another month, i think he knows this, thanks for your replys
So you think Mother Nature is stupid?
If the dog whelped a litter of 1-2 it will be fine to rebreed. A litter of 5 or more she might need to skip. Where do you people get your opinions? Actually it could be detrimental to skip heat cycles. Most good breeders breed 2 and skip one. A litter of 1 verses a litter of 7 does not quite have the same effect on the dam. Are you a breeder or advice giver? Actually skipping heats can be dangerous to a breeding bitch.

YOU ARE HONESTLY THE MOST RUDEST PERSON I HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERED.
I am not a breeder but have researched breeding alot but do not have the time to do breeding at this stage in my life but would love to in the future, from my reseach I have always read that it is cruel to breed a bitch every single season and is better to her to rest her every other season and if I was wrong why would the Kennel Club in England only allow breeders to register one litter of pups each year per bitch - the answer because they believe to have more than 1 litter per year is over breeding the dog
Aslo Tomcan our dogs arent in the wild anymore - and do you really think mother nature intended woman to have a child every 9 months :shock: because just cos its possible doesnt neccesarily mean its right Tom can
i dont think this person should be allowed access to the breeders section until they have proved they are no longer a rude individual but a good team player - it is great to give your opinion and your advice but their are ways to do it - you are one pof those people who only believe you are right , well I think you are WRONG how does that feel ?
Of course you dont breed a bitch every cycle...I honistly wonder where you get your facts from.Any good breeder only has a couple litters a year! If you overbread your bitch she can have serious complecations...these are not wild animals...they are not built to breed ever cycle...they are way too small to handle it.
Where is KJ?? I bet she would have a lot to say...being a responsible breeder and all
You guys Tom is only here to start problems, you need to remember to ignore these type of people. You are fueling the fire. I wont waste my time trying to explain how to breed or breeding ethics to someone who is that ignorant. :roll:
As for having a small litter and thinking would be ok for the bitch to be bred next heat cycle is complete ignorance. Having a litter is having a litter no matter if the litter is big or small. You should never breed a bitch under the age of 18m old and never over the age of 6. And should only breed her every other heat cycle. If you are breeding every heat cycle she does not have time to recover from the last litter. You should never breed for money only to enhance the quality of the breed. You should only breed AKC bitches and dogs, because that is the only Kennel club that can be shown. You should never breed a bitch that is under 4 lbs, this is a disasters waiting to happen. Not only are you looking at a c-section, but the possibility of a ruptured uterus because the bitch is so small and doent have the room for puppies.
When you are breeding and your bitch is "standing" or excepting the male, you should never breed more than 3 times in a week, one day in one day out example: mon-weds-fri this save the litter from having the "runt" and make the litter more even sized, and gives the stud time to produce a higher sperm count.
If there are any question please feel free to ask.
