I have a Yorkie-Poo Very adorable, He has the full Yorkie look only diff is he is all black. He only weighs 4 lbs. I am interested in Studding him out but I don't know how to go about this, I have never done it before. What do I need as far as medical history proof? He is not registered, so can he still be studded? How do I go about advertising him? I want to filter who I stud him to, Noone who over breeds or anything like that. Can someone please educate me on what to do?!
Thank you, I was unaware of this. He can be CKC registered, what does this mean, really I dont want to stud him in the way other's do i was hoping to trade for services, a female like him but chocolate or some other color other than black. To be honest I only inquired about studing for information reasons, just to understand how this all works. Thanks again.
Nothing, continental kennel club, it is actually illegal for them to go by "CKC" because the Canadian Kennel Club sued them and won, but anyhow the ConKC papers are worth about as much as used toilet paper, less actually.
You want to breed an unregistered dog? ? Why would you want to do something that would not benefit the breed? Legal or not, it seems very irresponsible to breed nonregistered dogs. Their value will be much less than registered, and the "cheap" dogs are generally the ones in shelters. To breed this dog, even if legal, would be to perpetuate an already large problem. Peta for instance destroys 80 % of the dogs it takes in - - do you want to be responsible for adding to that? In my opinion all breeding stock should be registered and be in excellent health. Breeding should be done only to improve the breed, not to perpetuate problems. Darrel

True indeed there are more dogs that dont have homes and yes breeding should be restricted although many dont fix their animals. In my opinion whether it is a Full blooded dog or not doesn't make it worhtless. There are many people who loves dogs that aren't registered I'm sorry but dogs love unconditionally and I couldn't care any less if my dog was a mutt or a $3000 registered dog, Reality is You Can't buy love so why spend an arm and leg on a dog just cuz its background, I have a full blooded American Pitbull I paid Nothing for and he is better looking than 9 out of 10 pits i see on the streets, he's well behaved and very loving, I also have a AKC registered Miniature Schnauzer I paid 0 for him...I refuse to pay for a dog, its the cheap and free ones as you said that can't find a home, I have taken in many dogs and rehomed them in wonderful permanant homes. So I will neuter my baby as i do all my pets, but i strongly disagree that just because a dog is not registered that they are worthless, their unconditional love and companionship is worth more than a registration in my opinion.
By the way, Thank you everyone for your valued opinion, I have learned something new. To put you at ease i considered breeding simply because I was uneducated about the process, I am aware there are many dogs that need homes and for this I will neuter my baby just like my others. I do not do things without research and very careful thought. Thank you again!
Please point out where someone said your dog, or any dog is worthless, you cant because no one said that, most of us on this board have rescued dogs, many of us have both in fact. Most of us dont believe in breeding for profit, or because I want a puppy from my dog cause he/she is the bestest, we believe that breeding should be done to better the breed. After the dog has Championship titles, and more importantly ALL of its health testing, this is not a vet check, it is having x-rays evaluated, eyes evaluated, ears tested, all of which is certified and graded, and any other problems inherent in the breed.
I did say the ConKC papers are worthless and that is because they are.
HaHa Maybe i shouldn't have used the word worthless but rather "Valued Less" "Their value will be much less than registered" this was stated and I disagree in mine and many others the registration and Trophys mean nothing. In many individuals opinion a dog that is not registered is just as priceless as a registered dog. This is proven when you see unregistered dogs for $500 in the paper and some one find them to be worth it despite the lack of papers and pays for them. I'm simply stating my opinion for the Registration and no registration of full blooded dogs. I understand breeding is to better the breed but to me that doesn't mean its worth $3000 and my unregistered dog is only worth $100 because he is not registered. You and many may not like my opinion and that is fine its freedom of speech and I don't say anything to offend just my opinion. But do forgive me if I have offended you. I am sure im not the only one who wants a beautiful yorkie but doesn't see the point in paying $1200 for it because papers say its the best or very well breed, when i can home a lovely free one that is just as nice and have it fully checked and everything is just as up to par as the $1200 one, medically. In ads I see people saying it is AKC registered, sired and damed this and that and will only be 4 pounds max, well i've also seen many of those same puppies advertised turn out to be 10 lbs and not in all that great health but they are covered and backed by all these papers, in my opinion when it comes to these breeders who breed for profit, they make it hard for honest breeders to say they are gauranteed to be this and that and for people to not be skeptical. Because when it comes to breeders for profit Papers and AKC registration prove nothing they are just as worthless as CKC papers because they didn't breed to get a better breed they bred for money and people get stuck with oversized, medically ridden pets. But i'm just speaking from experience and my own opinions. I am glad the majority of the people on this site breed to better not to profit, that is pleasing.
As someone else said, your dog is not worthless. I am certain he will make you a lovely nuetered companion. But the whole purpose of planned breeding is for breed improvement. The only way that can be achieved is through breed knowledge. By having a registered breed, there is a parent club with a breed standard. The is the goal of breeding, is to meet that breed standard set forth by the parent club. Responsible breeders show there dogs to see that there dogs fit into that set standard by acheiving a Champion title. It has nothing to do with being a Trophy dog. Then prior to breeding there are genetic test to be preformed. Each breed has its own set of issues regarding genetics and health screening. Then with time, and knowledge and a good mentor, you begin to learn bloodlines. And which bloodlines work well together to make the most desirable dogs(to meet the breed standard) So there really is a point. There will always be mixed breed dogs due to lack of knowledge, greed and accidents. It does not make those dogs any less desirable for companions. But the intentional breeding of mixed breed dogs is not in the best interest of the canine community as a whole.
The reason most Yorkies sell for $1200, is that it cost money to gain that Champion title(which as stated above, doe have value). They also do genetic testing, which is expensive as well. But does help to prevent passing on genetic issues within the breed. Most females have one to three pups via a C-section which also is expensive. Then caring for pups so tiny requires lots of time, and that is also worth something. A pup for $1200 will more than likely come with a written contract and health guarantee. Also if a pup has any disqualify faults(within the breed standard), there will be a refunded difference between show price and pet price or a replacement of a suitable dog. Most breeders will require that before you breed any dog you obtained from them, you too much gain a Champion title and do recommended genetic testing.

No I have never said that a registered dog is a better dog, I did say that to breed the dog should have CH. titles, actually I prefer conformation and working titles, but that gets harder with toy breeds, but also that health clearances are more important. You never offended me, and I hope i didnt offend you either.
As for the adds in the paper, well personally I would never look for a good breeder in a paper, while some may have adds there the vast majority are BYB and puppymills. And people who are willing to pay for a dog from untested parents, weather they are purebred or mutts, well they do say there is a sucker born every minute. I also think that making your dog go through that for the sole purpose of giving the pups away is well asinine. But you said you have a male so I doubt the owner of the female would do it for no profit.
Sometimes a registered dog IS worth more money. I don't mean the BYB that puts an ad in the paper for an AKC registered dog and is asking a lot of money. But for example-Maggie and Emma are AKC registered. But...both of their breeders show, they both do field trials and hunt trials, and the parents (and grandparents, etc) are all titled. And, most important-health tests are done on ALL breeding dogs. I know the OFA results of all the tests. It doesn't guarantee the pups will be healthy, but it sure is a pretty good indicator. I can tell you that Maggie, at 4 years old, has never been sick one day in her life.
A mixed dog isn't less valuable, in that ALL pets have value-yes, even sick ones. But the reason to pay MORE for a dog isn't because it is registered-it's because you know they come from healthy lines and dogs that are PROVEN to be the best of their breed.
I love all dogs, I don't think that anyone is less valuable then the other. I am fostering a rescued pit right now. She will go to a trainer her soon for some basic and find a wonderful home. I have my registared mini aussies, and yes breed, show, health test, and love them to peices. I have a rescue poodle who is the love of my husbands life. She sleeps with him and on his pillow when he is on the road. We also have a lab/shar pei mix who we belive is at the end of his life. We are planning to put him down at the end of the month(my husband will be home). He is 16 1/2yrs, had a wonderful life. We will miss him so much, but not any less becuase he is a mix. Everyone dog should be worth there wait in gold, no matter what is behind them.
oh for those interested. We planned to put Bear down for a couple of reasons. My husband drive a 18wheeler. Bear was his dads dog, and he wants to be there. He has been losing wieght and not eating much the past several weeks. He is also losing balence. He had a stroke about 1 1/2yrs ago. If he stands for a lenth of time, he just falls over. We decided to make the appt. before he lost his quality of life.
Everyone thinks their own dogs is the greatest! And it probably is for that person.
But that doesn't mean you should breed it. You also shouldn't do it just because other people do it or puppies would be cute. We are in the mess with overpopulation now because people bred for reasons like this. The only reason to breed is to better the breed-and not having a purebred and not being able to research lines(the contkc requires a pic of a dog to prove its purebred!)you can not in any way better the breed. Love your pet as a pet. There is nothing wrong with that.

I am sorry to hear about your Bear, illusionminis. My heart goes out to you. 16 1/2 years! wow. That is an incredible life.
As for breeding the yorkie-poo, I must agree with the other posters. I think you should have the little guy neutered. If your heart is truly into breeding--pick a poodle or yorkie--and breed to the standard. There are plenty of "mutts" already.
