The mating of the toy terrier: what the owner should know
The mating of the toy terrier is a responsible and really very serious event in which every little thing matters. Experienced breeders know that birth in small breeds is more difficult than in dogs of larger breeds (statistically, there are often protracted, with complications, with caesarean section, with the death of a puppy or several puppies, etc.).
I would like to say about Caesarean section separately. When dogs of breeds such as Bulldogs (English, French) and Toy Terriers are often required, a caesarean section is often required, which in turn leads to intermittent problems, in particular, to a pyometra (inflammation that may even end with the removal of the uterus) . The need for caesarean section is explained by relatively large fruits, and in these breeds puppies have large heads, and this is another additional complicating factor.
Therefore, the binding of the toy terrier should be carefully thought out and planned in advance. And we need to take into account not only expert estimates of future parents, but also the quality of litters received from their relatives (or this couple), and individual characteristics. And sometimes it is better to refuse mating. For example, a girl who weighs less than 1900 g, almost always gives birth very hard, so the risk of losing a dog due to birth is extremely high. If you are the owner of mini-mini, think before knitting - is the risk justified? After all, the percentage of successful, happy outcomes, alas, is very small.
So, the toy-terrier for mating must weigh more than 1900 g and have a good evaluation from the expert. Exterior of the male can be characterized only perfectly (with a lower grade, you can not knit).
Knitting toy terrier dogs should always begin with the preparation of:
1. Search for a pair. Of course, in advance. You should consider several candidates and choose the most suitable one. The owner of a bitch is obliged to think about a male understudy, not inferior in characteristics to the applicant number 1. In the event that suddenly the mating of the toy terrier has broken, you will have a spare option. The submitted candidatures will be considered by the head of your canine department, and only then you will get permission (direction) for the binding.
2. Arrange with the owner of the dog for payment of the mating. Do this in advance. The result of your agreement must be fixed on paper, affixed by its signatures.
3. Get the support of a professional who really knows what is the binding of the toy terrier (usually the instructor is provided by the owner of the dog, therefore, also discuss this issue in advance).
Not always the dog covers the bitch at once, so after 5 (maximum - 10) minutes the dog is taken for a respite. Then they fail again. The excitement of a male can be increased with a joyful tone, stroking, easy approving patting. Knit is better on the table, ideally in the dog's territory.
If the dog is not too experienced or even fit for the first time, in no case should you show disappointment. The dog feels discontent. It is worth, on the contrary, to praise the dog, and praise actively, for every attempt. A skilled instructor can put the bitch on time so that the dog quickly gets into the loop.
It is necessary to ensure that dogs, standing in the lock, do not try to break it, otherwise the genitals (both male and female) can be injured. The behavior of dogs in breeding is quite diverse: some grind their teeth, others tremble, others growl or whimper. The position of dogs during the castle is unimportant. Ideally, it is better to throw only one paw of a dog, not unfolding it (some bugs respond to the turn rather painfully), and both dogs will have the opportunity to stand on all their paws.
The happy mating of the toy terriers ends with the birth of charming puppies-taychikov. Litters are almost always small: the bitch leads from one to three kids.
