Breeding French Bulldogs Takes Responsibility
Since there is an increase in the demand for French Bulldogs, many people have taken advantage of the situation and have bought these types of dog just to breed and sell them. The responsibility of breeding a French Bulldog is neglect by many who only use it for gain and not for love of the breed. French Bulldogs are a special breed of dogs which can become a person’s companion or can become a show dog. Breeding this type of dog will need special attention especially during gestation period and after they have given birth.
There are many important things that a breeder of French Bulldogs need to take into consideration including whether or not a female is a right choice to breed.
The French Bulldog is observed to have some health problems and breeders are careful to screen candidates for breeding for the presence of genes that are responsible for this. There is a peculiar disease in French Bulldogs which causes defective blood clotting in an affected dog which results in massive bleeding even for small injuries and making them a high risk candidate for any type of surgery.
You can breed a French Bulldogs only after the first heat has elapsed. French Bulldogs more than five years old are no longer fit to be bred because they may experience complications that are risky and the dog might not carry the pregnancy to term.
Owning a female for breeding would require looking for a good male dog from another place. A good male candidate that is right for your dog has to be sought out. There are costs involved when you are looking for the right stud, and also for the breeding process. Even before your female goes on heat, you should start searching and identifying a good stud because this process takes time.
If you want to be successful in the breeding process, timing is important and if you do it at the correct time, the chances that your female will become pregnant are greater. The best time to bring your female to the stud is known by either a vet or an experienced breeder. Before the dog finally goes on heat you will observe about nine days when your female will bleed or have spots. After the nine days, the female goes on heat and on the eleventh day the ova are released from the ovary and is the best time to breed. If you want to have a sure pregnancy, you should breed your dog on the eleventh day from the start of bleeding, up to the thirteenth day.
French Bulldog may need to get a C-section to deliver the puppies which may cost you a considerable sum.
