I would never buy a puppy from a dam that is DA and I don't know anyone that would. Nervous mum = nervous pups.

It's not the dog aggressive that bothers me. It's the fact that it's based in FEAR aggression which indicates a weak nerved dog. I live with a FA dog...and it's a PITA.

The purpose of breeding is the better the breed as a whole. Just because you like your dog and want puppies doesn't mean she is a good example of the type of dog that should represent the breed.

A nervous, insecure, dog aggressive GSD is not a dog that should be adding to the breed.

If you want a puppy, look around for good breeders. You're going to have to pay a bit, but believe me, a puppy from a GOOD GSD breeder is going to be TEN TIMES more enjoyable than a puppy from your girl.

It'd be best to get her spayed.

You can't breed a dog with a genetic weakness. If she were deformed in some way would it be fair to produce puppies that were sure to be deformed as well? It's the same thing with behavior problems. I know someone who bred their FA chihuahua and she ate some of her puppies because she was so nervous.
If you want to experience whelping perhaps you could volunteer at an animal shelter and work with a pregnant dog in need.

Guys Take it easy on this girl. She at 17, was smart enough to ask first. You are a very smart young lady. I'm very impressed. Please take their advise and don't breed her. I know puppies are cute and special but you have your whole life ahead of you and if you love this breed as much as the rest of us here, you, will in the future, get a great dog to breed. Just love the one you have and maybe share your love for puppies with getting another one, or if that is not possible, maybe volunteer at a pet rescue, human society type thing. So many dogs who were cute as puppies, but have fear issues end up in bad places. Thank you for being smart enough to ask.

The fact is, temperament is genetic, so if your female is fear-aggressive, her pups probably will be too. In fact, there are an awful lot of fear-aggressive GSDs out there, it's why the breed has gotten a bad name. If you breed your bitch, you will be perpetuating this.

GSDs are not an endangered species, so it's not necessary to breed ALL of them. You breed only the best to the best. Not saying your female is not a wonderful, loving pet. She certainly deserves the best of what you have to give. Spay her, and let her be a wonderful pet.

If you think you want to get into breeding, there is a whole world of knowledge that you must have under your belt in order to do it right. This means lots of study and a mentor, going to shows, trials, and training. When you get to a point where you have a solid knowledge base (I'd say a minimum of five years of intense study), and you have a solid mentor, then you go about finding the right dogs for breeding.

Like others have said, do not breed your female, get her spayed.

She's still young work with a trainer and work with her on her aggression issues.
