I am in great confusion and need a proper opinion on my queries?

Hi, I am new to Pet World.8 months back i purchased 2 Doberman Dogs,one male brown and tan and another one female black and tan.Now they both are 9 months old and ready to reproduce.A few days back one doctor in my city told me that donot even think of reproduction as there could be a lot of complications in pregnancy and during delivery and your routine will get disturbed taking care of the puppies.Also the female dog could get aggresive on you while handling the puppies.He also told that the rules about dogs have changed and made very strict especially regarding the tail cropping. I am in great confusion and need a proper opinion on my queries.I will be obliged if experts on this forum could help me find a solution on the issues and guide me for the same.Regards, Dr.Satej D.Bagade.

1.First 9 months is NOT the age to breed. should be atleast 18 months.
2. Most pregnancy are natural but as in case of human complication can come up. so find a vet who is available at odd times also.
3. Cropping is banned worldwide. But have still seen cropped puppies around.

First study more on breeding and then decide when to go for it. My view is not before 18 months , rest is your shot.

As Anil mentioned it is not advisable to go for breeding before 18 months. The Dog and the bitch are still young, playful and have some growth left. Once they complete the full growth by 18 months u can go for breeding. With a playful mother it is difficult to handle during pregnancy.
Puppies bred from young parents may not have good immune system. Thats is my point.

As Anil and Rajesh have said above, 9 months is much too young to breed. Your female should be at the very least 18 months old and your male over 1 year.

Dobermann have quite a few genetic diseases that should be tested for prior to breeding such as vonWillebrands disease (vWD) which is a bleeding disorder. They are also prone to dilated cardiomyopathy and should have annual heart tests to determine if they are in danger of dying from the disease. They should also have their hips tested to make sure they will not suffer from hip dysplasia and pass it on to their pups.

Are both your dogs closely related? You shouldn't breed closely related dogs, especially if they are not health tested.

If you have performed all the health tests necessary for both parents and both have reached the age of reproduction then you may breed them. However, then you must care for the puppies! Puppies can be a lot of work.

Dobermann should have their dewclaws removed and their tail cropped at no more than 4 days old by a vet. You will have to find a vet able to do this BEFORE your dog is pregnant or else you will be stuck with dobermann with their tails and dewclaws. IF you want to sell the puppies with their ears cropped, this must be done at the earliest of 7 weeks old and no later than 12 weeks old. So you must also find a vet who will perform that proceedure.

Someone new to the world of dogs as you are should find a mentor... someone in your area who is already breeding dobermann so you can learn from them.
