Hi there - thanks for your question. I urge you to hold off on your decision to breed your young bitch until you have armed yourself with lots of knowledge about the hazards, responsibilities and ethics involved in breeding. Your first resource should be your own Vet, who presumably knows your dog.

There are many fine books which can inform you about reproduction in dogs. Also, you should read the breeders code of ethics, promoted by the JRTCA.

Best of luck, and please! take your time and weigh the possibilities before you decide to breed.
