Opinions on breeding my male GSD

My 8 month old GSD comes from some beautiful breeding. Some champion show lines. I would like to breed him at least once. I would like to get some opinions as to whether or not this would be a good idea. Not all dogs need to be bred, only the best representations of the breed should and I want to see if he stands up to those standards. His mother and father are both hip and elbowe certified. Maternal grandfather is Croatian Sieger champion, Ben Vom Bonihaus, the breeder who owns him also used to own the grandmother Isabelle. Currently owns his sister as well. If anyone wants to take a look at his mom and dad's pedigree and tell me what you think. I don't have Kaiser's pedigree on my computer yet. Also I posted a pic of Kaiser and some of his ancestors.

in the same way that I doubt you'd let me operate on you based on my grandfather being a successful surgeon.... I think you should let your boy mature, physically and mentally, train him, title him, clear him medically, allow him to show and prove his worth then ask yourself this question in a couple years. right now all he has is a pedigree.

Absolutely, I didn't mean to imply that I was considering breeding him NOW. If we do it obviously wouldn't be for quite awhile.

I didn't think you were intending to breed him now, I'm just saying a lot can be reveled in the next 2 years that may answer the question for you... but if that is a direction you're considering then there are a lot of things that you should be doing NOW to prepare him for that. training, showing, working, testing.

Just remember that if you want to draw a good quality female to him for breeding then you will need to prove he is as good or better than all of the other males out there. Breeders with good quality females will be looking for titled, health tested and proven males.

Thanks to everyone for responding. I dont think I will be breeding my pup, after having researched the topic more. My next question would be about neutering him, would it be okay to leave him unaltered, or is it necessary to neuter him at some point? I wouldnt feel comfortable doing it until he is at least 1 year old. I dont want to disrupt his development.

Thank you for choosing to not add another unnecessary litter to the world.

I would wait until he's around 2-3 years old (ie. fully grown/mature) before the neuter. It's certainly 'okay' to do so, just keep an eye on him to make sure he doesn't accidentally impregnate another dog.

If you plan on needing dog boarding at any time, keep in mind that many (not all) places require the dog to be altered, so think ahead.

Its like I said on another thread, there so many reputable breeders already out there that have years accumulation of knowledge for breeding and it really is a full time job, it's best to leave the breeding to them. I'm perfectly okay with that, I don't have to breed my dog, I'm okay with just spending as much time with him as I can while I have him. I know several other German Shepherd owners in my city who are planning on breeding their dogs, simply based on the fact that they're cute puppies. Can you imagine if every single person with a cute puppy bred their dog, well I guess that's why there's an overpopulation and so many unwanted dogs in the shelters. It really is heartbreaking to think of any of my dogs puppies going to a home that no longer takes care of them and then ending up in a shelter. No thank you!

I see no reason to neuter him, unless you let him roam and cannot control him reproducing. My males are intact, I plan to keep them that way unless something medically gives me a reason to neuter.

Everything I have read says that neutering has no impact on development. I'll be having my pup neutered next week simply because he is now just six months and already starting to hump everything
