Factors to Consider before Breeding a Dog
« on: September 26, 2019, 12:44:22 pm »
  • Availability of Good Homes:  Breeders should identify loving homes for puppies before breeding decisions are made.


  • Health Status:  Prior to breeding, the bitch and the male dog should be in good physical condition. Dogs should have up-to-date vaccinations and be free of diseases and physical abnormalities, including healthy reproductive tracts. A canine brucellosis  test should also be conducted before breeding occurs, even if it is an uncommon disease among dogs.


  • Hereditary Disorders: Clearances from any hereditary disorders that are common to the dog's breed (e.g. canine hip dysplasia) should be obtained before breeding.


  • Behavioral Problems: Both the bitch and the male dog must be of sound temperament.
