Default Newbie Problem

My dog is in her 2nd day of heat. This is her first time to be bred. This is also my first dog. What should I do? When should I breed her?

Personally, and I don't mean this to be harsh - if you have no clue, AND she has demodex, and this is her first heat (which is what it sounds like) - this dog has NO BUSINESS being bred.

Before the dog is bred, I would thoroughly research, plan, prepare and proove the dog worthy of breeding.

Has she been temperament tested, has she began working towards titles? Does she have her health testing complete and have they come up perfect?

Have you found a breeder to mentor you and offer advice?

I think you are jumping into this too soon and you should step back and determine if the dog is REALLY worthy of being bred. Breeding should be done to BETTER the breed.

And a dog with active demodex should never be bred.

I definately agree !!! I see you have 3 dogs....which one is it and I hope you don't have any un-neutered males. Please fill us in.

I agree 100% with what has already been said, is this her 1st heat? if so Why are you breeding? she is far too young, if she is older than this have you had ALL the official health check for your breed done, and was she clear of any of these health problems, just because you have a bitch, is not a good reason for breeding, before you should even think of breeding you should at least research into what it entails, do you know you could possibly lose your bitch due to complications, she may need a ceasar operation (very costly) have you got homes vetted for the litter once they arrive?

There are more than enough litters being born from dogs with health problems, that end up in rescue all over. why would you possibly want to add to this number?

You have obviously NOT thought this through or done any research whatsoever, otherwise you would not have asked such a basic question. if you love your dog, do NOT go ahead with any breeding til she has proven she is worthy of breeding off and is old enough to do so. and please keep any entire males away from her at this moment in time. Help is always on hand here for someone who wishes to breed responsibly.

This is odd, You say here this is your first dog.

In the Introduction forum you say you breed several different breeds....
Which is it?

If you have to ask us that question, you have no business breeding your dog. Do your research before you even consider things like that.

My thinking is that you should get all of your dogs spayed and neutered and put off the breeding until you actually know what you are doing.
