Where should the breeding take place?

I am getting ready to breed Nala but I would feel soo much comfortable if the owner of the male dog brings his dog to my house for a couple days so the dogs can do their thing naturally. Is it a bad thing to have him come her as opposed to me sending Nala there?

thanks for any feedback

I think its actually recommended to have the female go to the male rather than vice versa, Im not a breeder thats just what ive heard, there are breeders here that can answer that for you

Usually the bitch owner travels to the stud and mating is conducted. Then if you wish to repeat, go back 2 days later and breed again.

Sounds like you are new to this - read through this section:
Thinking About Becoming A Breeder? - German Shepherd Dog Forums
Take a look at this: "Should I breed my dog?" Flowchart

What do you mean "do their thing naturally"? Are you doing progesterone testing to make sure she is ovulating? Has she had her health checks and both dogs been checked for brucellosis? Is she a maiden female? Do you know how she behaves during a breeding? Some bitches can turn aggressive, bite the male if she is not ready, freak out during a tie and harm the male or herself - supervise breedings and separate the dogs when breeding is done.

Yes, This will be my first time breeding and I have been doing extensive research on the subject. What I meant by "Natural thing.." is letting the dogs behave as they naturally would and mate; without any human interaction.

I know that usually the females goes to the male but I have not read anything that specifically states to not bring the male to the female, which is why I am asking.

You haven't answered my questions: what health checks have you done? Have male and female had brucellosis done? Have you done progesterone to check when she ovulates? Any working titles or show ratings on the breeding pair? How many years of research and working under a mentor?

Breeding is not a joke - your female's life is potentially at risk. You are bringing life into the world and it is a huge responsibility. Think it through and do it for the right reasons - there is no shortcut to quality.

No, i have not done all the extensive tests you are talking about. she has done a physically check up at my local vet and he did not recommend against the breeding. The reasons i am doing it for is to keep her all black coat going and beacuse she has a great temper. I am not looking to do this professionally or for money.

Extensive tests?? Hip/elbow xray evaluations, DM testing and brucellosis testing should be done at the very bare minimum!!! A physical health checkup is not enough by a long shot.

"An all black coat and great temper"? No - that is not enough. Please do not breed this dog before you go through the proper pre-certifications. You should not be breeding right now.

Who told you that breeding her will have anything to do with keeping her coat black?
