Thread: Too old for breeding from

    Too old for breeding from

    Am I right in thinking a bitch of 7 is too old to breed from.Wf1

    Not if she's fit enough.

    as for KC registering the pups then I think 7 is the cut off
    There is a place on this planet for all of God's creatures, right next to my tatties and gravy!!!

    I think that you will find that the Kennel Club cut off is not reached 8 years of age at whelping date .

    I tend to agree with dan here but i think it is different for bitches having there 1st litter and a bitch that has had previous litters. But i could be wrong
    It will all be on KC website, assuming it is the registration ur concerned with not general health terms

    Thanks both the bitch is a HWV very fit and a damn good dog,I would'nt put her through it if I thought there could be a problem.I only want a couple of pups for myself ,not breeding for profit.Wf1

    The kennel club will not register a litter of pups if the bitch is over her 8th birthday.

    If the bitch will be under 8 at the time of whelping then go for it , Just make sure thet there are no breeding endorsements on her KC registration , also most people with a decent stud dog will
    only concider a bitch that has been hip scored
    You can't order just a couple of pups , wires tend to produce good sized litters

    Good luck

    I don't think there would be any difficulty shifting the pups once you've seen the bitch work .one walk down the wood would convince you to have a pup .
