    Default How does breeding effect male dogs

    I have thought about breeding my 2 year old chocolate male but am concerned about what it may do to his tension span and or concentration. Does breeding a male dog change them at all or amI overly concerned. Any Opinions?

    Probably temporarily less tense. However, I think you probably meant "attention span".

    Paul you are a riot waiting to happen
    When your dog doesn't do well there are only two options
    1. Kicking, screaming, and cussing
    2. Are just train your dog
    The second is much more rewarding for the dog

    I thought that was a NO NO in most states, not sure about his attention span or concentration , but I'll bet he will keep his eye on you afterwards

    Sorry but this is about as serious as I can be tonite,if there were adverse affects associated with breeding male dogs, just think how great Lean mac would have been without having to sire all those puppies??????

    This is a serious reply I have come accross dogs that have been used at stud a lot being more than usually interested in any female they come across and definitely more distracted if around a bitch in heat. However, have also seen the opposite, where an experienced stud dog knows in two seconds flat if the bitch is ready to mate and if not, does not bother her - so take your pick
    If you play their game train the way they train
