Q. I have a 120 pound GSD and am looking for a female to breed my dog to. Would you be interested in breeding one of your bitches to my male?
I am looking for a good bitch to breed to my male GS. Do you ever use outside studs, after proper qualification, etc.? I am in Houston at the I-10 and Bunker Hill area. I have a one year old GS that is close to 120 lbs. and well trained, wonderful disposition, and very SMART. I just lost a 13 year old dog, from old age, and would like to find a good bitch of comparable standards to breed with him. Thanks for your time and consideration.

A. I appreciate the offer but you do not understand the breed or the business very well.

A 120 pound GSD is not the standard. I compare it to a 600 pound quarterback in football. This breed was never meant to be that big. This dog will be un-coordinated as an adult and die young. People like myself breed based on bloodlines and there are no bloodlines that produced 120 pound dogs that are worth breeding.

My advise is to love your dog - you have a nice pet - not a breedable animal. Get him neutered and enjoy his company.

I have been doing artificial inseminations on my own dogs since the late 1980s, I don't know how many times I have done an AI but certainly between 250 to 300 times. I currently have a success rate of well over 90%. Our 1 hour DVD shows how we collect a stud dog an immediately inseminate one of our females at our kennel.

Puppy Tube Feeding Kit

Feeding tube is 16 inches long (41cm) and approximately 3/32 inches (2.7mm) outside diameter. It is best to store your feeding tube and syringe at normal room temperature. In colder temperatures the feeding tube will become rigid and stiff. At body temperature, the tube becomes softer, resilient, and completely flexible. Syringe is 35cc and attaches to the integral funnel end of the feeding tube. The opposite end of the feeding tube has a closed rounded tip with 2 side port 'eyes'.
