Question by Kiersten1218: How old should my Newfoundland be to breed?
I was wondering what’s a good age that a Newfoundland male be old to breed. What would happen if I bred to a female of age when he was only 9 months old?
Thank you for your answers. I’m not actually going to breed my dog, I was just wondering what would happen if I did at this age. Sorry to make your lives miserable.
Thanks for the help. I’ll definatley get around to doing that. Right now he’s a good and healthy pup :)

2 years old is the minimum because dog’s can’t be OFA certified until age 2. Any younger and you’d just be irresponsible. Genetic disease runs rampant in dogs, you should be testing for common ailments as well as trying to earn titles on your dogs. Pets are not breeding quality, you should only be breeding a dog who has something to offer to his breed.
