Breeders of the Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen often take pride in the quality dogs they produce from their kennels. They often try to breed dogs that have temperaments and personalities that make them great companions for new owners. While breeding a Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen litter may seem like a good way to earn money, since pure breeds are raking in huge amounts due to the dogs' pedigree classifications, there are a few things you need to consider before you try your hand at breeding.
Most pups that are bought from certain Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen breeders are already spayed or neutered upon delivery, so starting a breeding program from a pup that you may have simply bought from a breeder near you won't be a possibility. If you want to breed pedigree dogs, like the Petit Basset Griffon Vendeens, you will need to start with the most basic of beginnings - gathering information.
You will need to talk to breeders who are willing to help you start out a breeding business and share information on breeding dos and don'ts. Breeding any kind of dog requires a lot of work, not just the impregnating of the bitch, but the scrutiny and careful selection of your soon-to-be breeding stud and bitches. You need to find good quality pups from good stock and you need to raise them to produce puppies that you will be proud to send to new homes.
You would do best to ask for pointers from these breeders who have been doing this kind of business for a long time. They are basically experts at what they do and they can certainly help you with the obstacles that you might encounter along the way. You might even try to get your breeding program started with pups from their kennels. Information you get from other sources, like breeding books and online information can be augmented by the practical knowledge you get from these breeders, and this will serve to fill in the gaps that some breeding instructional materials fail to cover.
Of course, before you begin selecting the pups to begin your Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen breeding project, you will need a proper place to breed them where they can grow healthily and produce healthy offspring. If you live in the city in a small apartment or in a house that does not offer much by way of space and facilities for your dogs, like a yard that they can exercise in, you may have to reconsider your plans. Breeding dogs, especially pedigree dogs like the Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen, can be a pretty tricky deal if you do not go into it with a set plan and enough resources to help get you through the first trying months and years.
