Please help I have 3 chihuahuas 1 female aged 12m and one boy who is neutered and my other male is 18m old. I was planing to mate them on my bitches 2nd season. However my bitch is in her first season at the moment and this morning I herd a yelp and ran to the other room and somehow he got her season pants off and his belly band was not on. They were tied. I broke the tie straight away by putting my finger up my males bum. The tie was probably only around a few minutes. Is this long enough to get my female pregnant? Im so worried as I have herd that you should never let your bitch pregnant on her first season as it could kill her? Please can anyone give me some advise? Thank you. The

okay, first question: are any of your dogs titled in anything?  without that, you should not be breeding.  are you planning on doing full prebreeding health tests as set down by your breed club?  without that, you REALLY shouldn’t be breeding.

no, a bitch should never have a litter on her first heat.  that’s like a 9 year old girl getting pregnant.  discuss this with your vet and seriously consider spaying her.  this should have been prevented.

oh, and yes, it can take as little as 30 seconds to impregnate a bitch.

no, i mean do you show? what do you do with them other than keep them as pets? an equally important question: what do you plan to do with the puppies? do you have buyers lined up? what about a contract? what happens when those buyers can’t keep the dog they bought from you in 8 years? an ethical, reputable breeder will always take their dogs back, regardless of age – and they’re require it of their puppy buyers. please don’t breed your dogs. please. there are already too many in shelters, and none of your pets need to breed.… Read more »

there’s more to it than even that. there’s health testing for congenital problems endemic to the breed, and some of these are costly. plus, it’s unlikely the dogs she has at home are ideal for her bitch. one has to look at the total picture, not just the convenient animals in one’s home.

I totally agree with Laura on this one. Unless you are prepared to put a lot of work and money into breeding properly-that is getting your bitch in top condition innoculated and wormed before mating; KC register all the puppies; write all.their pedigrees;  microchip them all; have Contracts for the new owners you should have waiting; be prepared to take the puppies back anytime during their lives; have a whelping box in a quiet place; keep the puppies at the correct temperature; feed their mother the best food and more of it; be prepared to wash bedding at least twice… Read more »

You are of course correct Laura, all the Health Tests…cost a fortune I’m sure you’ve done it all like I have. DNA Testing is becoming more preferred now too. 

As you say the bloodlines of her dogs may not be the best match either.
