There are several varieties of Belgian Sheepdogs, and though they have their own special characteristics, inter-breed mating is both possible and encouraged. Whether you choose to use a professional breeder or do it yourself, it's important to understand the Belgian Sheepdog before you attempt to breed your dog with the same variety or a different one. That means knowing not just the breed but also your dog and the one you choose to mate with your dog.
You need to make sure that the dog you choose to mate with yours is in the best of health. This means making sure that he or she has been tested by the owner for any genetic disorders or diseases that can be passed on to the puppies. When breeding dogs this is very important. After all, a buyer wants a dog that is in good health, especially when paying a good price for a purebred. You also want to choose one that is of the same temperament as your dog. Though the Belgian Sheepdog tends to be more even-tempered and unlikely to attack unprovoked, there are always exceptions based on the environment in which the dog resides and the type of family members that reside in the house. In addition, if the dog has a foul temper, it's possible that there is something in the genetics causing it, which may in turn pass it on to a puppy litter.
If you decide to use a professional breeder, make certain you choose someone who has experience breeding Belgian Sheepdogs. If you choose to breed your female, make sure that the male you choose to sire the puppies is healthy and of good lineage. There is no reason not to inter-breed two varieties of Belgian Sheepdogs as long as each of the parents is in good health. Keep in mind the more perfect the parents are, the more money you will be able to obtain for the puppies. The average litter for this breed is 6-8 puppies, and the average price ranges from $500 - $1500 depending on the variety. Whether you are a potential owner, owner, or breeder, you want to remember if you have a female you wish to breed, you have to make certain she doesn't have access to any male dogs outside of her breed because you will not be able to sell puppies for a high price if they are mixed with anything other than another variety of Belgian Sheepdog. Depending where you live, even a mix of Belgian Sheepdog varieties may command less than a purebred of one variety. Before you attempt to inbreed, you may want to talk to local breeders to find out if you will be able to sell puppies for the same price.
