Thumbs down How does someone deal with breeding with animals peeing there mark on your furniture?

I was doing some reading on breeding and I understand that when you have the op. sex in the house they start peeing on everything.. How do breeders put up with that?

Several ways. If they are prone to marking in the house, then they are confined when they cannot be watched. However, my breeding males never marked in the house ... unless there was a bitch in heat in the house, and then they would sometimes mark around her crate, but nowhere else. It depends on the dog.

I've heard that smaller breeds are more prone to marking in the house, especially after being bred.

Are you breeding to better the breed and are you showing your pug? With a small male dog like Colliewog said they can sometimes be dirtier than the larger breeds and mark. At least in my experiences. I have known people who have two dogs of the opposite sex and the male is intact and will sometimes lift his leg in the house. I wouldn't put up with that he would go to the vet to get neutered. How old is your pug? I have also heard that after you breed a male that they can start to mark in the house.

The pug is still a baby. I really don't know what the age is for mating. I have his papers. And I'm a full time house wife with no kids. So I was thinking being I payed 900. for him it might be nice to make some money back.
Hes only 12 weeks. I'm not saying I'm 100% sure that I will mate him.
I need to know everything to really make the right choice. As far as showing him. Hes a "ACA" I don't know if people show those dogs. I do know a couple whos looking for a stud. So I have a lot to think about.

Just because you paid $900 for him doesn't mean that breeding him is a good idea anyway. My friend paid $950 for her female pug and she is spayed. Pugs can have alot of breathing and health problems. Please do more research on breeding and keeping an intact male. You should also have health screening done before you breed him and make sure he hasn't any genetic health issues that he can pass on to his pups. I have a very handsome male ACD who I paid ALOT for but I would never think of breeding him just to get money back from what I paid. If I didn't want him to love than I wouldn't of paid the money I paid for him. If you stick around on Chazhound you will learn ALOT about responsible breeding and dog ownership. We can be your guide and you have plenty of time to learn *smile*

I agree. You really have to know what you are doing when you start to breed. Breeding should never be about making money. The majority of breeders actually lose a good amount of money with all that they put into the dogs and puppies, all the health tests and screenings and everything. There is a LOT to think about. Please don't breed just to make money, you won't and if you do then you are doing something wrong (I hate to tell someone they are doing something wrong but what I mean is that you are skipping out on something important if you are actually making money). Breeders rarely if ever even break even.

Breeders take years of studying and becoming experts of their particular breed before they even think about starting. Then they look for a mentor to help them along. Where did you get the dog? Did he come with breeding rights? If he came from a pet shop like in the mall or something he should never ever be bred because he came straight from a puppy mill and has a good chance of having a whole lot of genetic diseases and problems when he gets older.

This is really why it is so incredibly important to do all the proper health screenings before breeding. You don't want to pass disease and bad characteristics and other problems down to a whole new generation do you? Do the health screenings, all of them, this will be majorly expensive but you cannot conscienceously breed without it and risk those poor puppies health could you? This is also why breeders almost never come out on top.
