What about getting some advice from the breeder you got ur bitch from?
You really ought to know more about breeding before actually trying it I think...

If you dont know when your bitch is ready to go to stud then i do suggest you look into breeding A LOT more.

If your bitch wont stand and she is Biting the male then she is not ready at all to go to stud.

also can i direct you to this thread: The Journey Of A First Time Litter

Bitches seasons are all different, mine follow a fairly classic timetable, but others I know of go against all the rules.

Can I just give you a true story here, to highlight the need for researching thoroughly before you go ahead and try standing her?

I know of a lady who has stud dogs, and to be honest, a stud dog service done correctly, can be scarier than having a bitch you want to breed out of. She had a bitch brought to her, and her dog unsuccessfully tried to cover the bitch. The owners took the bitch away and had it covered by a different stud dog, but the bitch never took. Next season, they tried again with the lady I know, who this time decided due to the same difficulty with the bitch allowing the stud dog to cover her, to carry out an internal examination of the bitch, only to discover quite a way inside there was a lump. On further examination by a vet, it turned out that the lump was a tumour and required immediate removal. The bitch was spayed at the same time - these were people who'd gone to the trouble of health testing their bitch, and done their homework, they were lucky they used an experienced stud dog owner. Had their bitch taken, it was unlikely either she or any pups would have survived.

This breeding malarky isn't for the feint hearted, its not just about ensuring you've had the correct health checks done for the breed, its also about arming yourself with the full knowledge in case anything happens during the process. Head knowledge is good, but definitely go back to the breeder and ask for guidance, nothing compares to having someone there who knows about mating and whelping.

Re: Can any1 help im looking to breed my bitch but she wont stand! :(

I've never bred from any of my dogs but my sister has, she let her staffie have a litter and I remember her telling me that it cost her a small fortune to do all the necessary health checks, then she had to make sure that she had enough money put by just in case her dog needed a c. section, she also had a contract with the new owners of the pups that if anything went wrong the dogs were to go back to her. That was 7 years ago and she is still in touch with the owners, unfortunately her dog died from cancer when her pups were 4 years old.
I also have a neighbour who bred from her Great Dane, she was left with 4 of the pups as no one wanted them and as it was costing her a fortune to feed them she handed them over to Great Dane rescue.

Re: Can any1 help im looking to breed my bitch but she wont stand! :(

I have to say Im pretty gobsmacked that someone would consider even putting there bitch to stud without even knowing the basics of there bitch

I have spent years preparing for the day my first litter of pups arrive, asked 100's of questions from Breeders, friends, reading books, searching the internet and finally getting the all clear from my vet to proceed.

If someone doesn't even know when to have a bitch mated what hope do they have of caring for her whilst in whelp and then giving the pups 100%

I may not know everything, but i have tried.

Sorry i don't normally gripe but this sort of grips me
