  How can I tell when my male dog is ready to mate?
It's a 10 months purebred shih tzu. Someone told me, once he lift his leg to pee, it's time to mate is this right? and if this is correct How old can the female dog has to be? what are all the steps I have to take for them to mate? also, can he mate with any female or it has to be with same purebred? I would appreciate honest and serious people to answer my questions. Thank you

why do you want to mate him? you should have a breeding mentor that can answer these questions. he is ready when he and the female have been registered and passed all the health tests. i am not sure of all the specfics because i choose not to be a backyarder breeder and contribute to the killing of dogs in shelters by having my pets desexed. good luck

So many breeders deceive the public about the money that can be made breeding dogs
It's simple math.
The only breeders who make BIG $$$$$ breeding dogs are the worthless pieces of crap who don't put the money, time, effort, research, or sweat equity into their program to create anything worthwhile.
Those of us that breed for what to me are the right reasons sacrifice lots of things in our lives to produce better dogs, advance the breed and our programs. We spend countless hours on the phone talking to everyone from total strangers that need help to our close friends trying to help people and advance the breed. We drive thousands of miles a year to shows, working events and to drop off and pick up dogs. We work our butt off to produce better dogs and help those people who actually want to do the same.

So please make the commitment to do it right or don't breed at all!

they are usually ready if their testical have dropped, they are marking territory and show intrest in females in potential mates. Usually closer to a lil over a year though.

Mating a pet dog is a bad idea, as any serious dog person or vet will tell you. There are quite a few serious reasons for this, which you'll find when you do some research. But here are a few:

1. Before breeding, an owner needs to become an educated expert. No owner of a breeding-quality female dog will let his/her dog mate with somebody's pet Shih Tzu (and 'purebred' doesn't mean anything in terms of mating). There are networks of breeders and breed mentors, which you can find through AKC shows, or the AKC breed club.

2. Any dog who's going to mate needs to be genetically screened and health certified, which is far more involved than a visit to a vet. Otherwise, poor traits are passed on to the puppies. Some of those traits might be recessive, so you wouldn't even know that your dog has them.

3. Any dog who's going to mate needs to be proven breed-worthy in sport, work, or competition, and needs to be an excellent example of breed standards. That's to ensure that only the best qualities are passed on to the next generation.

4. Dog overpopulation is a massive problem, and all of us dog lovers should be working together to fix it. Shelters are jammed full of dogs (mixes and purebreds), overwhelmingly due to backyard breeding (which is what you'd be doing if you allowed your pet dog to mate) and puppy mills. Backyard breeding is irresponsible, because every single backyard bred litter directly causes the deaths of dogs in shelters.

5. Spaying and neutering protects your dog's health. Dogs who are "fixed" are protected from certain cancers, for example.

6. You won't make any money. No one will pay a real stud fee for the services of a pet dog. And the puppies won't be sold for much (if anything), because they'll be BYB pups. Shelters are full of BYB pups who couldn't be sold.

Please, do some research. Go down to your local shelter and see how many dogs and puppies are being put to death. You'll see how important it is for all dog lovers to take a stand against irresponsible breeding. We can all make a difference.

Seriously?

You have NO idea what you are doing do you?

Having said that, neuter him because you don't have any business breeding dogs. You cannot even answer the simplest of questions, therefor, you are UNQUALIFIED.

Do your own research. Get your dog champion titled. Get him genetically tested. Then when you think you know everything...research more because something tells me its going to take you a while to get it right.

No breeding for you right now. Neuter your dog because by the time you have learned everything you need to know and have done all that is necessary, he will either be WAY too old to breed, or dead.

What? You thought I was going to give you the answer? I think not.

Don't breed him!! He should be at least TWO YEARS! Also, unless he has show titles, ALL his genitic testing, health testing, etc. He should NOT be bred!! If you have to ask on yahoo, don't breed.. Take a trip to the shelter, and look at ALL the dogs set to die, TODAY. Because of crappy breeders that don't know what they are doing (you).

You won't appreciate my answer because I am appalled by people who allow their dogs to breed. Like many other dog owners, you think that without knowledge that you should introduce your male to a female. If the females owner also has a dog without accolades, it's progeny will be doomed.

There are no experienced breeders who will pay for your dog to sire their females and you cannot expect to make a profit if you introduce your dog to a BACK YARD BREEDER.

Unfortunately because of the economical climate, even caring and experienced breeders have problems selling their puppies.

I suspect that you are looking for non existent stud fees. Please don't even consider a free mating, because your dog will never be the same. He will scream, shout and try to wander because he will be desperate to mate again and again. He will be uncontrollable, please get him castrated.

If you do not know the answers to these most basic questions about breeding then you have no business creating puppies.If we told you the answers to this then in a few months you would be writing wanting to know how to whelp.

Unless you have titles on these dogs ( both) then you are really just breeding mutts.

If you have to ask these questions you should not be breeding. Please do the right thing and get your dog neutered!!

backyard breeders are no better than puppymills. do not breed your dog. you do not know anything about it. you will end up with a dead female, or dead puppies, or puppies that are healthy but end up in shelters and are put down before they are even a month old. you are irresponsible and need to fix your dog. for every dog born, 3 are put down in shelters. in america 9 million dogs are put in shelters each year, 4 million are adopted and the rest are put down. you will be directly contributing to that if you breed your dog. fix him and leave the breeding to the professionals. the fact that you even thought about doing this is a huge show of your character.
