    Hi

    I have been breeding staffords for the last 7 / 8 yearts and would like to share my advice

    I got a lot of people ringing me , emailing me for miy / our advice and people who cant find new homes for there dogs or there was problems

    Most importent things you check before you breed

    1. Make sure both sire & dam have both got a great temprement and health checked , I also have l2 hga test done on all my dogs and all clear

    2. always check the line that you don't interbreed other wis you may cause problems with the mum and litter

    3. make sure you have things ready and the time effort and self asteame to look after a litter of pups and mum as you dont know what will happen I.E Bottle feeding etc.... and money etc...

    4. always make sure you have homes or have a good idea when / where you will find them new homes

    My advice is that the bitch should 2+ and the male 1 1/2 ( years ) making sure they have been vet cheacked

    also make sure that the bitch is not due for incoulation you need to do 10 days befopre mating and cant be done wilst pregnent / feeding and make sure wormed & flead upto date



    I have been lucky with most of my litters but i hate to see people getting into a mess before not looking into breeding and dont be afraid to ask people , and if your not 100% sure / Ready please dont breed




    Also HC and tested for PHPV & PPSC.

    Not only should they be tested for L2 HGA,they should be tested for HC and tested for PHPV & PPSC.

    What do you mean when you say interbred???

    The male in my opinion should be 18 months plus at 1 year old he is not mature enough or fully developed.

    Interbreed i mean by breeding them to close to lines i.e dad of the bitch etc.. as i have seen thaty happen and that is just cruel

    Yes mine have also got hthose tests done but i persoanley think l2 hga is the most importent

    yes and i also aggreee with 18months but the staffy acornoisation near me says 12 months

    ffs i only came on here as i got told it was a friendly forum and all i seem to be done is getting bollocked

    ALL Health testing is important,I don't believe any one test is more important than another,they are all of equal importance.

    In-breeding is the term used for the breeding you have described,some Breeders feel it's important with new breeds when the Gene pool is small.
    Why do you think it's cruel?
