Things You Should Do Before Breeding Your Dog
Next, you should talk to your vet. They can give your dog a variety of tests to determine if they should be bred or not. For example, if you are breeding a Lab you might be testing for CNM, hip dysplasia, elbow dysplasia, progressional retinal atrophy, etc. There are a number of genetic diseases that need to be screened out before you breed your dog.
