Pomeranian Questions

A Visitor asked the following question on 4/21/2005
Our new pom puppy is nearing her first breeding cycle. I have heard that you should not breed them the first time they come into heat. Is this true or does it really matter? I have also heard that breeding them younger effects their temperament. What do you think?

4/29/05 Breeding any kind of dog younger then 1.5 yrs is very bad for them. Its like a ten year old child having a baby. It sucks nutrients that should be going to the dog for the further development of itself, to the pups. Any sane vet will highly reccomend NOT breeding a dog on their first heat. Its unhealthy. Please don't do it. Just for the sake of your pup!!! Kaleena

5/14/05 You should not breed them until at least fifteen to eighteen months. I usually wait till she is at least two years before breeding. Use that time to learn as much as you can about Pomeranians and about breeding. Remember that many Poms need a C-Section, so be prepared for that expense, plus the extra care she and the puppies will need, if you breed her at all. A young female will often not look after her puppies properly - it is like asking a very young child to take care of a baby. Mary Mary
