i have a pomeranian and i want her to get pregnant at her most developed stage. But i know nothing when it comes to dog breeding because she is my first dog. I wanna know how many months can a dog become ready for mating and when is the perfect time it is fertile. How can i guarantee that my dog will be pregnant after mating?

    You know you could go to jail for that? Mating with dogs is illegal in most states. Either way at the very least its sick. Get the damn thing spayed, you have no clue what you’re doing. STOP MAKING MORE JUNK!!!!

    i assume you’re getting a male pomeranian, and i’d recommend seeing a vet first. from what i know though, dogs are generally fertile around half a year or so. hope you get gorgeous pups.

    dogs and puppies die from inexperienced breeders; it is not cheap ; you get crazy people that want the puppies; what if pups or mom get sick; costs a fortunate ; what if you can’t find a home for all ; remember having one puppy to clean up after ; now imagine 10; to do it right you have to be there on clean up duty; training duty; housebreaking duty ; inside/outside duty 24 x 7 ;advertising isn’t cheap; anything can go wrong and you can lose your female; it isn’t a game when it comes to an animal’s life. You are too inexperienced to just want something doesn’t mean that you should; go volunteer in an animal shelter ; help an unwanted , abused and abandoned life

    Seriously. If you have to ask about how to breed, than you need to NOT breed her. Breeding should be left up to the repsonible breeders that know what they are doing and they breed to better the breed. They do not breed to make a quick buck, to experience the gift of life, or whatever stupid reason people come up with nowadays to justify knocking up their dog.

    In my Pins they are most receptive at 9 to 13 days. This is when they will generally peak. The heat can go on for up to 21 days. Depending on the breed maturity, after the 3 heat or season is a female generally ready. This is usually anywhere from 18 to 24 months. I always wait til at least 2 years of age.
    She can be bred when she goes into heat. To help you decide when to breed her I’ll give you some information. When your female goes into heat. She will get a swelled vulva("place") and will bleed out of it blood ranging in color anywhere from milky to red. She may urinate more often and males will be more attracted to her. She can go into heat anywhere from 6 mo to 1 1/2 years of age. Heat at average lasts 3 weeks. About one week going into heat (this stage can last from 1-17 days), and one week in heat(this stage lasts from 3-21 days). As you can see it varys greatly in dogs. You should have a male around from the first day just to be sure. She will go into heat again about 6 months later(again this varys greatly in 4-14 months between heats.) If she does get pregnant she will be pregnant 58-66 days counting from about the time she stopped mating. Also you should not breed a dog nder a year old. Hope this helps!

    Just so you know coming from someone who owns pomeranians and knows show breeders, pomeranians have a lot of whelping problems. They often require c-sections which can cost you $1,000-3,000.
    You also have to know about other conditions if and know what to do right away in the case these conditions occur. A puppy gets stuck in the birth canal, the mother dies, the mother doesn’t push the puppies out, a puppy isn’t breathing,..ect.
    When the mother gets sick she has to go to the vet right away. You can’t wait on these things. If your vet isn’t there you will have to go to an animal hospital and usually when you go to those places they cost you hundreds to thousands dollars.
    I mean these puppies only weigh 2-6 ounces. So you really have to know what you are doing.
    I know people who have lost the mother of the puppies and have lost the whole litter.
    Or the mother got sick and they had to care for her and also hand feed puppies every 2 hours 24/7. Even then some of the puppies don’t make it.
    Ask any reputable breeder and they will tell you that this is the HEARTBREAK BREED.
    Before you even consider breeding you have to get your dog checked for thyroid conditions, luxated patellas, heart conditons, eyes checked, and hips checked. If these things don’t check out well then by breeding the female you are risking that her puppies can get these conditons and then they will pass these things onto their puppies.
    Stud fees and other things cost a lot of money too. Stud fees can range from $300-1,000. Plus the female needs a brucellosis test and needs to be up to date on vaccines. The stud and the female also have to compliment each other.
    If the dog is a good representation of the breed and conforms closely to the breed standard and all the genetic tests I suggested up above have checked out okay then you can breed her at 2 years old.
    If not you are risking her life and are going to be passing on genetic conditions to her puppies.

    If you are truly wanting to breed pomeranians, then the best thing is to start learning now. The best way to do that is to start showing her. Take a handling class, learn how to groom her properly, and take the plunge. Not only will it help you to evaluate your dog and her quality, it will also allow you to meet and talk to experienced breeders who can teach you about the breed and proper breeding practices. It will also help you to know where the best studs are, so that you can produce the best possible puppies.

    Boy, a lot of great answers here! I would have to agree with most of the other posters. PLEASE, DO NOT BREED YOUR DOG!!!GET HER SPAYED!!! Leave breeding to the professionals, who know exactly what they are doing. You yourself are saying, that you know nothing, when it comes to breeding a dog. When breeding a dog,YOU HAVE TO KNOW EVERYTHING!!! It’ s also very expensive! It’s not as simple as putting two dogs together and making babies. It’s so much more than that. Too many things can go wrong, and you’re female could die giving birth, and it’s even more risky, when breeding a small breed. I would hope that’s not a chance you are willing to take, with your female. Don’t put her through that kind of trauma. It’s not fair!!!

    Sometimes I feel really bad when questions are answered really meanly. I just want to assure you that I will not be one of those people.

    I believe that you should spay and neuter your animals. There are many irresponsible breeders out there, which is why I think that everyone’s is quick to judge. If you think about it, it would probably be best for you to alter your dog because of all of the health problems. If you do not know too much about breeding, then, for the safety of the animal you should just fix her.

    I like to give both views on the subject, so you are better informed and it gives you the opportunity to choice yourself, instead of everyone telling you what to do.

    She is a small breed so she will have complications. Smaller breeds are unable to pass the puppies through their fallopian tubes safely. Also, she is going to be at high rick for ovarian cancer amd mammory cancer. You will not make much money for all of the money that you make off of selling will go right back into the puppies for their vaccinations. Plus, you have to go to the vet, so your mama dog is healthy enough to even breed, this involves blood work. Hopefully, you know the history about your dog before you decide to let her have puppies. If she is from the third liter or over then more and likely her puppies will look less of the breed and they will be a bit malnurished. And you just might be producing mutts. You never know and it is just a few things to think about.

    After explaining the risks and you decide you still want to breed her, then at least wait till she is two years of age. Do not let her have more than two liters. Make sure to bring her to the vet before, during and after the pregnancy. Make sure that the male dog is smaller than her (puppies would be a little smaller to go through the fallopian tubes).

    Please, at the same time, think of all of the homeless animals out there that are unable to get a home. The population is unimaginable. Especially how many are put to sleep. Think wisely and do as much research as you can, then you decide.

    you wait untill the 2nd or 3rd time she is in heat and then find a male dog that is suitable to mate. have them mate acouple times, once everyother day maybe to ensure she is pregnant.

    Well, lets see. You find a boy dog, that is prefurrably not desexed. You put them in a room together while she is on heat, and viola!!! Puppies.

    Hey if you dog is past 7 months your better off getting her spayed. small dogs having puppies have a hard time. Dogs come in to heat twice a year.

    Why would you want your dog to become pregnant? Is it because you wish to raise a litter of puppies, pay for their vet bills, feeding costs, grooming, and upkeep for the next 20 years? Because you won’t sell any puppies the way you plan to breed. If you do not plan to keep all the puppies then they will end up in a shelter, either dead, or forcing other dogs to be put down to make room for these ones.
    Or maybe you wish to see your own dog become ill, for improper breeding, and oh did I mention that most dogs her size need a c-section delivery? Its pretty expensive too.
    But of course if you are doing this the right way, your dog will of course be three years old or older, checked and approved for breeding health, have a breeding quality tempermeant. She will be dewormed, not over weight and not under weight, obediance trained.
    You should have the best stud lined up do you knwo how expensive a proper stud dog fee is? Oh yeah, you already know this I’m sure since you plan on breeding, but you DO have a whelping box set up, a whelping kit prepared, puppy foprmula on hand in case something bad happens to mama?
    You obviously have homes already lined up as soon as you pay for a costly ultra sound to see how many puppies there are. And you have a backup plan in case a buyer backs out? You have the kennels needed to keep any puppies you breed that are ever in their life time no longer wanted, you bred them it is your duty to protect them.
    You of course have your dog registered as a purebred, and papers for the litter ready for sale? You are of course prepared to hand raise an entire litter of puppies if their mom rejects them, as some first time mothers do? Or if of course mama gets injured or dies in their birthing, she’s so tiny.
    So now you are a couple thousand dollars poorer, now if only you can actually sell them. If not I hope you have the pocket change to raise all of them for the next dozen or so years.

    for onething if you let your dog have puppies and you sell the puppies how do you know they will go to a good home. Years ago I raised cockers and sold them cheap but I had to get all their puppie shots and everything and then I sold them cheap and I hated doing it cause I didnt know what kind of place they was going to. I also bought a pom once from a kennel and found out 9 yers later when Bobo started having eplisey seizzers that his mom had been crossed bred . If you dont know what your doing for your sake and your little dog sake please think twice before you do it

    i have to advise you to either go to your vet and ask them, if you don’t have a vet for your dog, you need to get one in order to breed a healthy dog your dog needs to visit the vets office regularly. But if you seriously don’t want to see a vet regularly for your dogs health and you still want to breed your little on then try visiting this web site, http://www.learntobreed.com

    You don’t. You have her spayed and call it a day. There are too many animals out there without homes for people to be breeding more. And really if you are still going to breed her, be responsible and go to the vet for information.

    dogs usually have a heat every 6 months after
    they turn 6 months old.the best time to breed
    is after the 10th day of her heat.

    Please ask your own vet. She should have a check up before you consider this. It might not be a bad idea to check to see if you have any prospective buyers of pups. There is almost nothing sadder than unwanted animals
