If you have a female dog, she must be at least 15 months old to mate. If you have a male dog, male dogs can breed as young as 6 months old, but usually don't become sexually active until they are about 9 months old. It all depends on if you have a male of a female dog.

Everyone has their own opinion on it. Many people say wait until they are at least a year and a half if not 2- 3 years old.

Dogs should not be bred until it is two years old and all of the proper health testing is completed. Dogs should be checked for genetic diseases, hip dysplasia and heart disease. Visit your local animal shelter before breeding and decide if you want to contribute to its population.

Dogs should not be bred until they are physically and mentally mature. The age of maturity differs with the breed. In general, small dogs may be bred at 12 to 18 months, medium dogs at 15 to 18 months and large dogs at 18 to 24 months.

I think that the breeding age for dogs is at least one year of age. I could be wrong but I think that is the correct answer. I also think that it varies from breed to breed and also male and female. Females mature faster than males I think. Just like with humans :).
