at what age would it be too late to breed from my bitch?

 

they norm say 3-4th season is the best time for her 1st litter, so if older prob wouldnt go behind 5 years old :yes:

I would say about 5 years old is a good age, give the bitch time to prove herself :thumbs:

Having said this, I've just bred from my 8 yr old bitch with no problems, but only because she has missed twice before,and I really wanted pups from her.

Also she's always been kept fit and well.

id say no age is to late as long as the bitch is fit and healthy :thumbs:

poeple talk a load of old shit, if the bitch comes in season weather shes 12 months or 12 years she can be bred from

 

Would you breed off a 12 month old pup? :hmm:

no, but you can, and if dogs were in the wild and come in season it would get mated, age wouldnt come into it. dogs dont know how old they are do they.

He's asked a tidy question of when people think it is a sensible time to breed from..not when can she. It's common sense

No wild dogs going to live past 8 i wouldnt of thought,Plus in the case of wolves only the alpha female breed,so if it aint strong enough to hold top spot it aint breeding any way.

Personally i would push it to8 if the bitch was fit.
