I am only 22 but I am not currently working at all as no jobs yet have made me interested at all. The thought and idea of starting up a little home breeding is something that I actually would love to do. The only type of breed I've owned in my life so far is West Highland Terriers.
I notice that there are hardly any people that I could find that actually breed pure bred westies in my state (victoria). When looking for my current westie, it took a few months of searching and we got extremely lucky to find her. Anyway I have my sights set on westies as it's the breed of dog I've always liked and owned.
I will not be rushing into this by any means, my old man is a tradesman and he already is willing to help me setup all the kennels and make sure everything is safe, clean and ready. My parents are willing to give me money to purchase a high quality stud and brood but here is the main thing. I cannot ever find westies let a lone westies that come from well-known high quality breeders.
I'd be buying the stud and brood from different breeders obviously but will this cause a problem with them both living together? Will they not mate if they're living with eachother?
I am just starting so I obviously wont be able to breed the PERFECT westie but you've gotta start somewhere. I will have a maximum budget of around $2,000 for a stud and $2,000 for the bitch.
My current westie is a female and we desexed her when she was 1 years old as we had no plans at all for her to have a litter. Also considering this, will there be any issues with my current westie if there are 2 new westies introduced into our pack that will be having litters?
