One of the most important parts when it comes to breeding is making sure you have a schedule. Of course you really can’t have this to an exact date because you need to know exactly when your pooch will come into heat. The thing is to have something general in place. By having a plan in place you will make sure no time is wasted and you will make sure you don’t miss the time your dog is in heat. Follow below for a few tips on how to keep up to a good schedule.
A key factor is knowing about when your dog will be going into heat. This will help you get the most important start to the breeding schedule. If you are responsible you will wait until your pooch is at least two years old before you begin the breeding process. One of the main reasons for this is so you can put together a breeding schedule. After two years you should have a pretty good idea of when your dog will come into heat.
You also have to be on the lookout and know that a stud will be available during your breeding schedule. It’s important to check into all of this long before your dog ever comes into heat. You need to make sure that the stud is what you want for a partner for your dog. Of course when you select a stud dog the owner will need to know as close as possible as to when your dog will be coming into heat. This way you will be able to find out early if the stud will be available when you will need him. In many cases you can enter into a contract for the time your dog should be going into heat. If that is the case the owner of the stud must make sure their dog is available. The thing is your dog needs to come into heat at the right time or you may find out you have no stud to breed your dog. In any case it wouldn’t be a bad idea to have a backup plan in place. Having another stud ready is always smart thinking for a breeding schedule.
As soon as you see your dog going into heat you need to contact the owner of the stud dog and make the arrangements to get the dogs together. As long as you have picked a local dog this shouldn’t be too hard to make happen. The problem comes into play when you have chosen a dog that isn’t local. You will have to figure out travel arrangements. At this point you also want to get all the veterinary stuff done. Make sure your dog is all healthy and not caring any disease before allowing breeding.
So your dog should be travelled to the home of the stud dog. At this point before any breeding takes place both owners are going to want to make sure all the paperwork is in place. It is very important to make sure you have all your ducks in a row and have all the papers upon arrival. If for some reason your dog is being shipped you have to make very definite arrangements to make sure the paperwork stays with your pooch. However your dog is being travelled the people doing the carrying will tell you the best way to make sure the documents end up where they are supposed to.
Know that your dog will end up with the stud for at least a week and maybe two. Allowing this much time allows enough time for proper breeding to happen. Once your dog arrives home you will then get the paperwork needed from the stud dog. Anything that is relevant you will receive if you have chosen a reputable breeder.
