I have talked it over with alot of people, and have decided the tests will be done, even if she is unregistered. All out puppies we have bred over the years have been sold on a spay/neuter contract and we do follow up on that. Proof is to be sent to us before the pups birthday. ANd if not, as the contract states, me and my family will take back the dog. THanks for everyonese help.

This is the last time i will be on.

Thanks again

Once again I accept everyones points of veiw. One more question. If I went along with the testing... as I do have a chance next year to go with a family friend, does it matter that she is unregistered? Is it the fect that she is unregistered why i shouldnt breed her?

I thank you all for your concerns. But I must say... I took my girl to the vet yesterday to see what he had to say about the whole breeding thing. He said that after 18 months is fine to breed. He said the younger the better becauSe the older they get, the more problems they have because their bones become brittle.He also said that testing is a good idea... but that only means you will get more for your pups. He said Berner's do have problems giving birth (which I already knew) but ALL BREEDS have that chance of having problems. Like I said before, my family has bred dogs for voer 15 years. We have bred Cockers, Hounds, Dalmations, and Boston Terriers, and trust me I have had my share of bills from ALL these dogs. I have had ALL these dogs have birthing problems. And also, I have had my share of bills with people needing help paying for their dogs. I have read about these dogs for over 5 years. She has been my dream dog. She is unregistered, her parentes and grand parents were unregistered and I will be breeding her with and Unregistered Male. I thank you for all your concern, but I must say something, people with registered dogs have a totally different veiw then thsoe with un registered dogs. None of our dogs have EVER been registered. Papers mean nothing.

I just have one question... is it said to wait until they are two just because all the testing is not done? I am just going to say that she will have no testing done. She is ungregistered and all pups are going to family and friends. I have read in an AKC book that anywhere after their first birthday is fine to breed. But they suggested to wait until their 2nd birthday just to clear all tests. I just wanted to know everyones thoughts on the age thing...withou t waiting for tests.

I have a female Berner that I am looking to breed. I just wanted some tips on what should be expected. Some of the main issues are;

Is there a certain age I should wait until? I have been told anywhere from 18 months till after her second birthday. Does anyone have any ideas about this?

Also, I have heard they have alot of birthing problems...My family has been breeding dogs for 15 years... mostly small to medium dogs so I know a bigger dog is going to have her differences. WHat sorts of problems do they have!?

Any help will be great!
