If you ask a breeder what their purpose is in breeding this bitch to this dog, they should be able to give you an answer. There should be some methodology to the selection of bitch and dog, and a direction in which the breeder is going. The selection should take into consideration the bloodlines as well as the individual dogs, what the dogs produce not just what traits they have, and if you have been working on it for a while, what traits a dog improves, not just what traits the dog possesses.
Each of my questions was asked simply and directly, not to "discourage" but to encourage you to do it right, to educate yourself, and to get connected with someone who will help you out.
The place to meet the people you need are training clubs, training classes. And don't expect it to happen over-night. If you picked an excellent breeder from the beginning that wasn't too far away, then cultivate that relationship, and learn from them, learn about them before you decide. It sometimes takes getting dirty, spending time in classes and in clubs before a breeder believes you are serious enough and have something to offer, for them to accept you as someone they want to help learn.
There are a few breeders here. Carmen already wrote you off pretty much. This just isn't a venue to mentor people to become breeders. You can't train and evaluate dogs over a computer, and you can't breed a bitch or whelp a litter over the computer. At 2 AM when your bitch is circling and straining, if you come on here, there might be one or two newbies that will scream at you to get to the vet, which may or may not be the thing to do.
Sorry, I am just telling it like it is. You are taking it as though it is discouraging. Discouraged over words isn't a good start, really. I know a lady who waited years for a pup, and then trained her in all kinds of things only to find she had HD. Ok, she kept her and loved her and got a second pup, and did the same, only to have some other heritable disease. She kept her and loved her, and waited for a few more years and put in another shepherd only to have her hopes dashed yet again. Another lady lost her bitch and had to hand-raise the puppies. And a friend of mine nearly lost her bitch and all the puppies. Talk about discouraging. Ah well, some things we are just determined to learn the hard way.
My mentor, a lady that was breeding and raising champions before I was born, half a century, would say to me, "I have to learn from other people's mistakes, I don't have time to make them all myself."
