Q. How long after a female starts bleeding do you get her bred?
How long after a bitch starts bleeding do you take her to have her bred? I have heard anything from 2 days to its not to late even after she stops bleeding. When is the right time?

Thank You!!

Debbie

A. Bitches are usually bred 10 to 13 days after they start bleeding. Most new owners do not know when the first day is because they are too inexperienced to figure it out. Bitches clean themselves up in their first days.

Get a Kleenex up and swab the bitch's vulva every morning when it comes out of the crate.

If you need more information than this – you will need to join my web board or read the archives of the board. There are over 70,000 posts.

Learn to use the archives of the board. There are over 6,800 registered members and over 70,000 posts in the archives. Learn to use the search engine for the web board to search the 70,000 posts. At any one time there are always 100 to 200 people on the board it is very active with excellent trainers.

You do not have to register for the board to read posts, you do need to register if you want to pose a question or answer a question. The registration process can take a couple of days. It just depends on how busy we are at work to verify the names and address (which is always done first to keep abusive people off the board).

I have a saying that I tell people – it goes like this: "Everyone has an opinion on how to train a dog – just ask you barber, your mailman and your neighbor” The problem is very few people have the experience to back up their opinions. This results in a lot of bad information being passed out So people like yourself need to figure out who has the experience to warrant listening to.

You have been talking to a lot of people who fit this description.

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'.
