I have a female boxer that I would like to breed, just once. She is 19 months old. I need to know when is the best time to breed for the first time and also, when is she "in heat?" She has "bled" twice. I have had 3 other boxers, but, never bred any of them. I dont know when to introduce a mate or anything..HELP
Honestly if you don't even know the first thing about breeding you need to contact a mentor in your breed. find out what health testing should be done first. I know eyes need to be CERF'ed and hips OFA'ed, that is the very least. You also need to know alot about the bloodlines behind your dog, You never know what a dog may carry and if the genes pair up right it can spell disaster.
Any idiot can put 2 dogs together and they will make babies. If you want to produce good healthy pups, and keep your bitch alive while doing so. Alot of research must go into each breeding.
