Chapter 1 – Deciding To Breed
Becoming a dog breeder is never something that you should do lightly, and
never something that you should decide upon without many hours of
consideration and planning. If you are going to be breeding dogs, then there are
some things that you should think carefully about.
Breeding dogs is something that requires a lot of hard work, and something that
requires a lifetime commitment on your part. Therefore, if you are going to be
breeding dogs, there should be some major aspects of your life that revolve
First of all, a love for dogs is a great start, but it should not be the only reason
that you think you would be a good dog breeder. A love for dogs is very
important, because you are going to be spending many hours of each of your
days raising puppies, working with your dogs, and making sure that they are
healthy. Loving them is important, yes, but loving them is not the only thing that
is important, because just love alone can only get you so far.
Besides loving your dogs, you are going to need to be a dog person. This is
different from loving dogs. Loving dogs might mean that you enjoy having them,
that you keep them around and take them out when needed, and might even let
them sleep on the bed once in awhile. Being a dog person is much different.
Being a dog person means that you find dog hair in your soup and don't mind,
and that your dogs usually live more comfortably than you do. If you are a dog
person you would never dream of allowing your dogs to be out in the cold
weather, and you wouldn’t ever expect them to live in conditions that you
wouldn't live in yourself.
If you are a dog person you read everything that there is to read about your
particular dog breed, and you study all of it to find out the things that you should
be doing. A dog person might joke that their life revolves around their dogs, and
they are probably right.
Therefore, in order to be a good breeder, you have to be these things. You have
to be willing to work with your dog breeds and to make sure that you are doing all
that you can to provide dogs with good homes. You must be diligent, and ready
to work for the common good of the breed.
And, the bottom line when it comes to dog breeding is that you must not be in it
at all for the money. The money should never be a motivation for dog breeding,
and so if this is your main motivation, it is time for you to step back and look for
Breeders who breed for the money are never going to be good breeders. In fact,
most breeders, who are doing it correctly, don’t make much money at all,
because breeders end up spending the money that they do make on puppies on
things for their dogs, shots, and on the breeding process. Therefore, you should
always be aware that the money isn't going to be a major factor in whether or not
your dog breeding is successful.
There are some questions that you should ask yourself if you plan on breeding.
Answering these questions is a great way to make sure that you are ready for
Why am I doing this?
Am I trying to make money?
Am I ready to allow dogs to be a major part of my life?
Will I let them sleep in my bed with me?

should happen to me?
Am I ready to deal with pregnant dogs?
Am I ready to raise puppies by hand?
Can I be responsible for finding homes for each of the puppies I produce?
Not only that, but can I be responsible for making sure that the puppies I produce
don't have puppies themselves?
Am I ready to actually birth puppies?
Can I handle dealing with sick puppies, or puppies that don't make it?
Am I ready for heartache when it comes time to give puppies away, or to deal
with puppies that just didn't survive?
Will I know how to read my female dog and know when she's had enough?
Will I be able to quit if it just isn't working for me?
Am I ready for the joy that comes along with dog breeding, as well as the hard
