Breeding any type of dog, including a boxer, calls for a fair amount of time, money and emotional energy. The allure of having cute little puppies in your home and then selling them to make money is in fact, a very hard endeavor.
1. Get your boxer’s American Kennel Club (AKC) paperwork in order. The AKC is the entity that registers purebred dogs and keeps track of pedigrees.
2. Ensure your boxer is healthy, in particular in case you have a female. Get your dog dewormed, and have her heart tested. Get all immunizations and inoculations updated.
3. Locate an appropriate breeding partner for your dog. The AKC sets standards for the boxer breed; be sure to compare them to any possible mates. When you’re searching for a boxer ensure the head and muzzle are correct proportions; eyes must be dark brown, looking forward and not too small or deeply set; ears are medium-sized and set wide and high on the skull. The boxer coat is short, smooth and glossy with a brindle or fawn coloring.
Here’s what Brock, The Boxer, did to find his partner:
4. Sign a breeding contract. Agree to the conditions of breeding and sign a contract that describes the services, breeding arrangements and fees. For instance the breeding contract could include, how many tries at breeding will be granted and where it will happen. The breeding fee to the stud is normally the first pick of the litter or the money that puppy is sold for.
5. Get the dogs together a couple of times before you in fact breed them, so they can become familiar with each other. This is likewise a good time to see the character of each dog and plan whose house the breeding will take place at.
6. Wait for the female to come into season or heat, for boxers generally once every 6 months. Watch for the 1st day that you see a red bloody discharge. She will stop bleeding around day 7 however is generally most ready to mate on the 12th or 13th day of the cycle. Maintain the female far from all other male dogs other than the boxer stud you have selected.
7. Bring the 2 dogs together for mating. Allow the dogs play and interact. Once the female is prepared to mate, she will move her tail to one side, called flagging, so the male can sniff or mount her. In case the stud mounts and they mate, the two dogs will be stuck or tied together afterward for approximately 20 minutes, occasionally longer.
8. Get the male and female together again, in 24 hours, to mate once again. Mate them 2 or 3 times if possible, to give the female a superior chance of having a large litter.
