Default Dog breeders ?

so i have a 20 month old male mini yorkie, i want to breed him but i'm not sure of what to do. I have heard you can either get pick of liter, stud fee or money for first puppy sold. I would assume that the money would be my best option since i don't want another puppy. I want to run an ad in the paper but not sure how to word it, and what happens if i breed him and the female doesn't get pregnant, then what ? Would i owe something to them ? I have never breed before so im not even sure if he could make puppies and i'm sure that there is not way to find out other than a test which is probably expensive.. so any advise ?? Please someone help me, im on maternity leave and looking for make a few extra dollars so i could stay home with my newborn son, so im hoping to breed him with as many dogs as i can, is that safe ? sorry more questions, but is it ok to breed him more than once at the same time with more than one dog ?

First of all i'd like to say that your reason for breeding isn't the best. Especially since most beginner breeders LOSE money. It costs money to breed. My mother-in-law breeds dogs and most of the time she doesn't make much money, especially if something unexpectedly goes wrong (puppies die at birth, get sick, ect.). She does it because she loves dogs and the process of training them and many other reasons, not money.
I'd suggest that if you ARE going to breed your dog to go buy some literature on the topic. I'm sure some of the other members on here can probably give you some links to information about breeding.
Please think about this before you commit. Like I said, it's not money in the bag. I would suggest that you not breed your dog.

I agree with lime on this one. I will totally admit that I am biased. I would much rather see people adopt from rescue organizations since there are so, so many dogs out there in need of homes. That having been said, there are some members here that breed some absolutely fabulous dogs. They raise them for all the right reasons and make sure the pups go to great homes.

I'm not sure how to react to your wanting to breed him with as many bitches as possible in order for you to make money. It is possible that you could not make a dime off off of any of the matings and then what? You breed him again and again until you make enough to stay home? I totally and completely understand you wanting to stay home with your son but I just don't think this is the way to make that happen.

Running an ad in the paper can be dangerous for many, many reasons especially given that you are pregnant. IMO it is not a good idea to bring strangers into your home or go to their home. There are just too many weirdo's out there and could be a danger to you and your unborn child.

I honestly wish you the best of luck with staying at home with the newborn but I don't breeding this little guy is the best way to go about it.

Other than the obvious, you need to be aware that once you use your pet as a stud dog, his temperament is liable to change completely--forever!

There's a very strong possibility that he will begin marking in the house constantly, will howl and go without eating for days at a time. (not eating for days can become life threatening for a tiny dog.)

Before every single breeding, your male and the female will both need to be tested for sexually transmitted diseases. If your male contracts a sexually transmitted disease and you were to breed him; you could leave youself wide open to a lawsuit by the females owner. A lawsuit that would cost much more than you could make by using your dogs as stud hundreds of times!

Every time you use your dog at stud you expose both him and the female to potentially serious physical injury.

If you're serious about using your dog at stud and you're willing to risk his physical and mental health for the sake of a few extra dollars, I suggest you find someone who can mentor you along the way. In the meanwhile, here are a couple of links where you can begin to educate yourself about the responsibilities of owning a stud dog.

This is the worst reason in the world to breed an animal. The only breeding that should be done should be done by individuals for the love of the breed and to improve the quality and the temperament of the breed - NOT make money. Find another way to make a "few extra dollars". You have no idea what you're doing and you want to do it for all the wrong reasons. And as mentioned above, with all of the things that could go wrong, you could very well end up SPENDING money. Please don't breed your dog, the last thing we need in this world is more backyard breeder puppies.

Sorry I have to agree with what has been said!

If you don't do tests your risking your dog's life here and if you do you won't make much money! My advice do it for love not money your going about this way wrong!

Instead make crafts and sell them online, it's simple and if one piece of paper dies well it's better then risking your dog isent it?

Please don't do it but I don't want to scare you away so please just read the links applesmom has given.

I will also add that you do know you will have to have him tested for hereditary disorder, witch in this breed are
Elbow dyslasia
eye tests
Deefness
heart problems

You do not use a dog at stud unless it is going to improve the breed and I do not breed but if I was approached by someone who wanted to use their dog on my bitch it would have to be an outstanding dog in the breed and have had all the necessary health checks etc.

There are better ways of raising money other than using your dog as a production line stud as you would have to spend a lot and I mean a lot of money having all the relative health checks done. as I say if you need the money so badly there are other and better ways you can raise it.

If I were you I would look for other options.

I can appreciate that you want to stay home with your new born and your need for extra money and |Ihope you manage to find a way to do this, but please do not use your dog - as Applemom says it could change his temperament among other things,

That is an awful reason to breed! You should be ashamed of bringing more puppies into the world from a 'mini' breed (which will be full of health problems most likely) to benefit your own pocket. Have a look at these links...bear in mind, you will have to pay a lot to have all his health tests done, and even then, first litters quite often ending up costing a lot more than you will make. You should also have homes waiting BEFORE the mating, will you be able to do that?

This should be useful for you, and should help you decide if you really want to breed.

I am sorry, but I think the reason you are planing on breeding your boy is appalling and if this is a genuine inquiry , I hope you take on board what people are saying.

When breeding any dog , whether it be the stud or the dam.... only the best should be bred from, the point in breeding is to better the breed, and you and only achieve this by using the best dogs....

Have you KC papers for your boy... this is the first step, the next is to have all health tests done for the breed....(this costs money)

I would suspect also the only bitches you will get to mate with him will be of poor quality,,,, as only those owners of poor quality, unregistered bitches will answer your add.

Good breeders dont have to advertise their dogs in local free adds.... they are sought after....by other breeders of quality dogs.

If you use your boy for stud , you are also risking his temperament changing, specailly the amount of times you plan to use him.. not to mention the risk of helping produce unhealthy pups..flooding on the market.

The average price for stud work will be the cost of a puppy...or a pup, but byb `s generally sell for far less than the going rate for a good well bred pup.

I would suggest while you are on maternity leave, you take the time to read up n BYB`s and the misery they cause to unsuspecting owners...

As if you continue with your intention, you will be adding you name to the list .
