There are many considerations to breeding dogs. Whilst it may seem like an easy or fulfilling choice, it is a very serious decision. It is rewarding when everything goes well, but can be devastating if things go wrong. Anyone who intends to breed needs a good knowledge of all the aspects of breeding; there is a lot to learn to do the best for the dogs you breed with and the breed itself.
