When is the right time for a breeder to serve a bitch in heat to a male so as to increase the chances of achieving pregnancy?

When is the right time for a breeder to serve a bitch in heat to a male so as to increase the chances of achieving pregnancy?
Conception can only occur when the bitch's eggs are fertilized by sperm cells from a male dog and this in turn can only happen when the bitch is ovulating or releasing eggs from her ovaries. Unfortunately ovulation does not occur throughout the entire duration of the heat, so knowing when it occurs is key to achieving successful conception and the best way to know when the bitch is ovulating is by taking her to your vet to do a vaginal cytology test or you can use an ovulation test kit to do it yourself.

Having said that, if for any reason you cannot do any of these tests then your best bet will be to cross her on days 9, 11 and 13 of the heat period. Most bitches do ovulate around this time, but some may ovulate earlier or later though so all you can do is cross and hope.

Alternatively, you can examine the bitch physically on a daily basis until she starts flagging, then you know she's in standing heat and will be receptive of the male. However this method too is not full proof and ovulation can be missed as well.

If you're the owner of both bitch and stud, then you may just leave them together to do their thing freestyle throughout the entire heat.
