Blending Knowledge And Luck To Create The Perfect Dog Breed

By Nazima Golamaully

In this article, I’ll leave out ‘backyard breeders’, folks who reproduce puppies from their own pets at home. The breeders referred to in this article will be those that focus on one breed and have selected what they believe to be ideal representations of their breed to produce puppies. This article is exclusively excludes pastime breeders and focuses on those who make it an explicit profession.

When you genuinely seek to breed a dog, you’d look to create puppies better in general than the parents. Humans generally do not select two people to mate and create offspring, but as a dog breeder you can. The genetic factors to be considered in a breeding process aren’t that hard to comprehend, really.

Primarily, you’d want to start by picking out the best ambassador of the strain you have in mind. One never sells a female dog that is a genuine representation of a dog breed – it’s beyond price. It may be possible to sell its follower-up, but even that could cost as much as $50,000 based on the breed. You’d never get a perfect puppy out of imperfect parent dogs; sometimes even stellar parents won’t do it. So you must put every possible dollar and effort into purchasing the very best female you can afford.

Professional dog breeding can present you with more than just a few tribulations. First of all, you could come across more than a few candidates offering you many young dogs in this aggressive enterprise. Secondly, there is the life for the female dog that is put at stake with each dog breeding. As a third, the puppies could die young, they could be stillborn, or the mother may not even conceive at all. Last but not least, you’d have to spend quite a buck even when you are doing your dog breeding properly.

To breed a top caliber female dog for the purpose of dog breeding, you will need to have a variety of veterinary tests run on the female from blood tests, uterine exams, and constantly paying to have their progesterone levels measured by the vet once the female dog is in heat. Also, you’d be needing one specially selected stud of a dog, which could set you back thereabouts $5000, and you don’t even know that it will work. If you are truly lucky in dog breeding, you will have a pregnant female who will cost you additional funds by requiring vet visits if/when she stops eating, vomits or is otherwise lethargic. And on the off chance that she makes it to the end of the lying-in period, more expenses may have to come out of you as you take her in for an x-ray or sonogram to count the puppies in her belly.

Since each puppy will be sold, you need a certain number to ensure that all these costs are covered, but more often than not, if you are truly sparing no penny to approach dog breeding in the right way, you will find you have only a few, if not just one – whereas the irony is that many backyard breeders end up with 10 or more puppies without trying.
