What do I need to know about Scottie dog breeding?


Answer by  patti (29325)

The breeding of dogs, or any animal, is not something that should be undertaken without a great deal of research, knowledge and education, especially with regard to genetics and the specific dominant and recessive traits of any breed. Do not purchase dogs from inexperienced or "backyard" breeders. If you want to breed your dog, speak to your veterinarian for advice.

Never inbreed or "linebreed". Breeding related dogs increases the chance of hereditary diseases. Don't breed only for show- breed for health and temperament first, and then to the standard (if you choose to follow it at all). If you find out that a dog you bred has a hereditary disease, spay/neuter the parents. Test for hereditary disorders before breeding.

Scottie breeding should only be attempted by a reputable breeder. Reputable breeders show their dogs in competitions. They do not breed for profit, but rather for the betterment of the breed. They perform genetic testing and line up homes for the puppies before breeding. Scottie breeding should not be attempted by amateurs as it is dangerous and expensive.

Scottie dog breeding must be a local term as it does not describe a particular style of managing breeding programs. There are many breeds which have Scottish origin but Scottie breeding is not one of them.

Before breading your Scottie's, bring them into the vet to make sure they are in good health to breed. You will need to construct a whelping box for your Scottie to deliver the puppies in.

Like all pure breed dogs Scotties or more properly Yorkshire Terriers have a number of recurrent genetic defects. These creep in as mutations because the breeding population is too small. Yorkshire Terriers have bad teeth, eyesight problems and are prone to insulinomas (cancers of the pancreas). If you have the money do a genetic panel on your dog and mate.

Scottie dogs are different from other groups. As per my knowledge, these groups required training and the owner should careful while playing with these dogs. Moreover it looks aggressive. Still I have seen people looking for Scottie dogs. In other words Scottie dogs are those who has fighting tendency a lot.

As with any breed of should not breed the dog just "to be breeding it or to have puppies." Every day, literally thousands of puppies get put to sleep in shelters across the US. You should only breed if you are doing so to improve the breed.

The first thing you should know is that breeding can result in many hardships. It is best to not breed and encourage others to adopt from shelters and save an animal. Shelters are already over crowded and added more dogs into the world does not help. Visit a local shelter to see if you are ready to breed.
