    Welcome to pbc. My advice is to find a mentor whose values align with your own.
    For example, if I decided I wanted to become a breeder, I'd call a breeder that competed a lot in obedience and held lots of titles on their dogs bc that's what I like to do with my dogs. I'd also make sure they did health testing on their breeding dogs that I feel is important, like cardio testing, hips, elbows (ofa). I also think breeding super young dogs is no bueno, so I'd make sure they were breeding dogs that were at least 3. I'd ask them if I could mentor under them for a while and hopefully be able to purchase my foundation bitch from them if things worked out. That's me though, others on the forum may have different opinions on what makes a good breeder doing the right thing.

    Actually it's not unheard of to breed a brood bitch in the 3rd or even 2nd heat depending on when they have them.

    Yeah I know. I like when they wait until their older to see if any health problems develop or how they've matured. But like I said, top each their own, that's my preference but I don't fault breeders that breed younger.

    Question. I previously tried to breed my bitch and found a good stud but first attempt the stud didnt seem to stay on long enough. My female was willing to give it up though. That was a fail. And second attempt,same stud she started getting aggresive every time he tried to hop on. She wouldnt even let him mount up. Any breeding/locking tips you can give me?

    Try our sister site game-dog.com, there's a lot more breeders on that site than this one (although there's a few here).

    Did they actually tie up? Some times you have to help them along, you need try and keep the bitch still if possible. There is all kinds of methods to keep the bitch still and from turning. Just curious what are you breeding?

    Wouldn't suggest breeding dogs without peds, people won't know what they are getting and you don't really know what you have.

    You got any pics of the dogs? If the breeding isn't bettering the breed in some form or fashion, then i wouldn't be breeding. My dogs have peds and they still have to earn the right to be bred.

    Shelters are full of unregistered bully mixes that someone bred and grew up to be a big problem at no fault of the dog. please don't make any more unwanted dogs.
