Breeding Your Dogs

To breed a bitch that you own that is over 30-days old, simply click the "Breed" button on her main dog info page while you are logged in. You can also breed straight from your kennel page by clicking the small "Breed" button below the word "Bitch" in your kennel run. The first page you see will show you all of the dogs of the same breed in your kennel. If you want to breed to an outside stud, click on "For a list of stud dogs, please CLICK HERE" at the top of that page. You will be taken to a selection of the different studs in that breed you can use to breed your female. You can use an outside stud by clicking on the "Breed to this Stud" link on the dog's page. Bitches must wait five days after their last litter before they can be bred again.

A bitch must be 30 days old to breed to a stud that you own, but must be 31 days to breed to an outside stud. Dogs must be named before you can breed them.

Remember, free (basic) accounts can only breed for the first month after joining. Once your first month is up, you will not be able to breed any more unless you upgrade to a premium account. Breeding also produces many puppies that will count toward you kennel limit (5 for basics and 30 for premium) when they turn 14 days old.
