Hi I'm new to tis forum, my name is Louise & I have a 8month bitch staff she is called socks. I am planning on breeding her in the future, she has just finished her 1st season which lasted roughly 3-4 weeks. Would really appreciate some main points of advise in breeding staffs (as iv never bread before). I want to get as much knowledge on breeding staffs as possible, as I want to get it right & perfect. When do u advise to breed, age etc? About cross breeding? How to care for the pups after? How to care for socks when pregnant? And any other important points u all can give me!
Many Thanks
Louise & Socks :-)

I personally wouldn't breed as there are too many unwanted Staffies in rescues. It is quite expensive to do do properly as you need health tests, maybe Vet care, first injections etc.  biggrin

I'm afraid I agree with Claire Louise, there are far to many Staffords already in rescues and thousands of them euthanised each year Sad

I'm with Claire and Hayley here Louise. Not to sure why you want to breed especially when there are so many staffords in rescue and being euthanised already.

I think this should be left to registered/licensed breeders who can guarantee and health test their dogs. They breed to improve the breed and usually already have potential homes and owners already setup because of their past experience and reputation.

Sorry to sound blunt but please leave it to the professionals, for all the reasons stated above.

Just enjoy your girl, there is no reason to breed her  Smile

Hello! What are your reasons for breeding her? Is she KC registered and are there people already interested in her line/heritage?

Personal opinion; i've spent the last 5 years working in kennels, i've put more staffies to sleep than I care to recall and there are around 70 put to sleep per DAY in the UK. There really is no need to be breeding anymore staffies.

Agree with all the above. We rehomed Alfie only 5mths ago. When we were looking, all the kennels were packed with staffies! There are so many unwanted ones out there why add to it?

Agree with the above comments. The only people that should be breeding dogs are registered breeders. There's no need to bring more puppies into this world when so many dogs need homes Sad

Hi all thanks for all your replies.. Iv now decided not to breed her as it seems bit complicated and if rather leave it to the professional breeders etc.. The only reason I wanted to is just she's such a beautiful staff, every time I take her for walkies someone compliments her on how much of a lovely staff she is.. But il jus enjoy her myself n il now plan to get her done , many thanks everyone :-)

Hey Socks, glad you've reconsidered but it really is for the best, especially for the breed Smile

I think that there are many of us here who thought we had amazing dogs who would've produced lovely pups but we haven't bred ourselves just because we don't feel its right for a number of reasons, many of which have been stated.

I initially thought the same when Meg joined our family, but I quickly found that they are currently the most abandoned dog in the UK. I had her spayed after her first season and never regretted it. There are too many BYB's just in it for the money. I would advise you to get her 'done' as they are liable to suffer from pyometra in later life, which can be fatal. Enjoy her for what she is, a beautiful, loving member of the family.
