Not before 2 for a bitch, and yes I have used an 8 month male at stud, its totally different for a male as they generally walk around humping everything at that age anyway! for a bitch it is completely different they have to endure the pregnancy the birth and the rearing so need to be both mentally and physically mature. rearing a litter takes a lot out of a bitch.
I cant believe any bitch would be ready to breed at 8 months and certainly wouldnt entertain it.

Pogo's mum was two and a half when she was first bred. Pogo came in the next litter when she was 3 and a half. So I think 2-3 years of age is alright for a bitch to be bred.

Im not a breeder, but 2 sounds like a safe age. Just because we get a menstrual cycle doesnt mean the body is ready for babies.
In humans 12 yr old sexually mature but that doesnt mean they're ready to have a baby!

I also dont beleive breeding should be done unless you are experienced and registered with the appropriate bodies. (Im back to refering to doggies now! lol!)

Agree 100% ... Lexi was 2.5 years when she had her litter. Not only does it take it out of a bitch, it takes it out of an owner if its the first time and a novice .... I know it did me as I hand fed Kai every two hours ... I was like a Zombie and the kitchen resembled a bomb site! As soon as I washed and Milton'd everything, I had teats, bottles and feed all over the worktops again ........ NO bitch should be bred until after 2 years old .. those who breed less than 12 months should be shot!
