Last night I got a call from a member of the Hunt club that has a Brittany Bitch just going into heat. He's watched Scout develop and how he works in the field through last season and wants Scout to breed his bitch.
There is a part of me that says sure no problem, but there is also a part of me that is a bit apprehensive (cautious) because I want to be sure that I am doing the right thing for the breed.
Before I make a decision I think there is some information I need and I will list it below. Please take a look and offer up any other advice or things I should look for to make a decision.
Scout is now 18mos old and I really had not thought about breeding him until he had won either a NAVHDA UTP/UT or AKC conformation.
So here are my initial questions:
- How old is the bitch
- Is this her first "heat"
- Can I see a three generation copy of her bloodline
- Do you have a potential list of homes for the litter
- Have any deposits been placed
- What do you intend to sell pups for
