If you have a male they are sexually mature at 6 months of age but may still have a low sperm count. For females they can go into heat (which is the only time they will allow breeding) as young as 6 months but do not breed her until at least the second heat or two years of age. They are not mature enough before then and it can cause complications. Breeding is VERY complicated. You have to know the signs the female is in heat, and once she shows them it has variance of 1-21 days before she will start breeding and 1-17 days is the variance of how long she will allow breeding. Then you have to know how to tell she is pregnant, how long she will be, what the care, food, etc is during this time, know how to find the right whelping spot, know when she is ready to have pups and what to expect during labor so you can call the vet or act in time to save a pup or the mom if complications arise, how to take care of her and the pups after labor, when to wean, vaccinate, etc the pups, and how to sell them.  All these steps are vital and please for the safety of your dog and the pups don't breed until you know all of them. If you are not sure of something you can email me at stanishas@aol.com and I will be glad to help! Good luck to you (and your dog!;)
