    Hi I need help, I have a ***** staffordshire bull terrier, she is 18 months old and is in season (1 week into season). I have a dog ready to breed but she doesnt want to do it? She just playes with him and nips him or sits down when he tries to mount her. What should I do here? Try to hold here up while he does it? Ive no idea please help!

    ok....for starters your not suppose to breed any dog until they are 2 yrs old.
    Did you do any health test?
    If so what kinds?
    Why do you want to breed these dogs?

    other's will have more.

    nearly 2 isn't good, they have to be at LEAST two years old.
    Where did you get the dogs from?
    What are their bloodlines?

    I bought the dog off a freind when she was 9 weeks old. Dont know the blood lines but she's a English Staffordshire bull terrier.So by not wanting to mate means shes not ready? you think I should wait another 6 months till next season. When I say nearly 2 means she is 2 in a few weeks.

    No, she hasnt got that, been checked thoroughly by the vet.

    Ok when she doesnt want to mate does this mean shes not ready or not? Do we humans need to help them sometimes?

    Thanks for all the info!

    I think you'll find little to no help here as we're pretty much against breeding dogs that s may have health problems - which you can't know until you do all those tests.

    I don't think it's such an issue if you are sure to have a good home for all the puppies (it can be more than 8!) and people are aware that their dog might have health issues later though... is it the case?

    There are enough mutts dying in shelters without adding more too... Is the male show quality? Is it the same breed?

    Being checked over by a vet simply isn't enough, it really isn't health testing. And if you don't know the bloodlines, that isn't good either.

    I suggest you speak with Love4Pits, she's a reputable breeder of Siberian Huskies and Chins, plus she owns three pitbulls.

    Does everyone getting one of these pups know all responsibilities that go along with having a puppy?
    Do you know what will happen to the pup if one of the future owners decided they don't want it?

    I think you should talk with Love4Pits, especially since your dogs haven't been given all the health tests that go along with breeding and they aren't pedigree.
