Overview

Breeding dogs is something that requires a lot of hard work, and something that requires a lifetime commitment on your part. A love for dogs should be a major aspect of your life as many hours of each of your days will be spent raising puppies, working with your dogs, and making sure that they are healthy. Breeding dogs takes many hours of consideration and planning. You will have to find out as much information about the breeds you are considering so you can make a good decision about the right dog breed for you. As you begin to breed, you are going to need to have a breeding plan. Your breeding plan should then go into detail about how many dogs you plan on having and where you plan on keeping them. Then, you will need to obtain the best breeding stock possible for your own breeding operation. Breeding a litter should begin with knowledge. Responsible breeders devote time to learning as much as they can about their breed, about canine health, training, and about American Kennel Club rules.Every dog is the best dog in the world to its owner. Responsible breeders, however, know to avoid "kennel blindness." In other words, they take a step back and honestly evaluate the good and bad points of their dogs before making the decision to breed. The goal of breeding, after all, is to produce a better dog and a quality pet.Examine your dog carefully. Recognize its flaws. If you decide to continue with the breeding process, look for a mate that will eliminate or balance those flaws. One of the best ways to get an objective opinion of your dog is to test it against others. Consider attending a dog show to determine how your dog measures up against the best specimens of its breeds.Raising puppies is a full-time job. During the first couple of weeks, the dam normally takes care of the puppies' needs, but complications, such as a dam with no mild or an orphaned littler, may arise. It is the breeder's responsibility to provide a safe, warm, dry place for the puppies, and proper food and water for the bitch.
