We have been working with our dog at our club since she has been a pup and we just love the breed. If we can get her titled and show others how wonderful a GSD really is that would be good enough for me. My husband would like to buy a couple dogs and start breeding them we are just in love with the GSD. This is way I asked about our male dog we really want to give him the life Elsa has and do what GSD love to do. We would also like to stud him out if everything look good with him in a couple of years.
I don't even know where to start......
Almost everyone has a dog they think is so wonderful s/he should be used for breeding. VERY few actually have a dog that should be bred. There's a whole lot to it and it's a very expensive proposition if you plan on doing it right. Health tests, training, titling, that's just the beginning. Don't even want to go into the actual expense of breeding if the bitch needs a c-section or if there's something wrong with any of the puppies. Doing this right is not easy, cheap, and it's not for the faint of heart. Things can and do go wrong. There's a lot more to it than having a decent looking dog and a decent looking bitch, and putting them together!
I have 3 dogs here from very good lines, with names in the pedigree that many would recognize. My dogs are titled in multiple venues. (well the youngster isn't titled YET, she's just a puppy.) None of them are being used for breeding.
Curious, what lines are your dogs from?
