A How to Boston Terrier Breeders Guide for Beginners

Do you have a beautiful female Boston terrier breed that is constantly receiving complements from acquaintances? Are you also considering trying your hand at Boston terrier breeding?

Successful Boston terrier breeders who do their research and choose the right dogs stand to make a lot of money for their efforts, but most of the time those who go into breeding simply for money will fail and could end up with a litter of puppies and no buyers.

Breeding dogs is a serious business and will take up a lot of your time; though on the other hand if you have a genuine love for the Boston terrier mix then becoming a Boston terrier breeder will be very satisfying work.

Choosing and checking your dogs:

If you have a female terrier then you’ll want to have her health thoroughly checked for any possible conditions that she might pass down through her genes; also ask your vet to check her womb for any possibility of complications during the pregnancy.

You will need to locate professional Boston terrier breeders for a male stud; the best way to do this is through word of mouth, asking at your vets or other local dog breeders for a recommendation.

When you find a possible stud ask the owner for a family history if possible, even though a dog looks perfect and is in great shape it may be possible that a distant relative has a degenerative condition that will skip generations.

Different types of breeding

Once you have a match you should devise a breeding plan, there are three main forms of breeding currently in use by Boston terrier breeders; in-breeding, line-breeding and out-crossing.

  • In-breeding: This is the mixing of very close relatives such as a mother and son or sisters and brothers. The idea is to keep the strong physical attributes and characteristics carrying them on into the next litter of puppies.

    The one downside to this method is the possibility of actually intensifying the bad attributes in the children, but this is completely uncontrollable.
  • Line-breeding: This technique gives the breeder more control over the outcome of the litter, it mates together distant relatives, such as an uncle and niece to reduce the risk of strong negative physical attributes in the new litter of puppies.
  • Out-crossing: This method uses the line-breeding method, but instead breeds 2 distant relatives from completely different family lines; this will produce a litter of puppies with strong positive features without the risk of defects from in-breeding.

Of the 3 different forms of breeding the out-crossing and line-breeding methods give you a more security of getting a litter with all of the positive attributes of your bitch and stud, but new Boston terrier breeders won’t have this option and may have to first risk the in-breeding method.

Is your bitch in heat?

The Boston terrier breed usually goes into heat every 6 months, which gives you a short time frame in which to pair up your bitch with a suitable stud.

The heat cycle will last for about 3 weeks and in this time your dog will go through a number of changes both physically and characteristically; there are a few signs that will alert you to this event.

During the first stage your terrier’s vulva will enlarge and it my start to produce a small amount of blood discharges, this initial period last for between 9-17 days.

Following this is the second stage and the ideal time to put her in with the male stud, during this stage she will become overly affectionate, show her genitals openly and the blood discharge may turn a pinkish tan color.

This main period will last for roughly 21 days until her eggs pass through and are discharged as dark red blood, which signals the end of her heat cycle.
