Do false pregnancy's cause health problems?
So my 2 year old female GSD has had 4 heat cycles and after each one she has a false pregnancy. She doesn't produce milk just mothers the soft toys. I have been told that too many false heats can cause problems. I do not want to spay her as she is a working and competing GSD in Schutzhund. And I was planning on breeding her next spring. However I am a little worried now and wonder if I should breed her at her next heat cycle. I have done a lot of research and haven't found anything saying a false pregnancy causes anything but stress. And being she doesn't produce milk it isn't a severe case. Any insight would be appreciated.
