When is the start of heating in a female Pomeranian?

I have seven months old pomeranian. When is the best time for her mating?

You should never EVER EVER EVER breed a dog on its first heat cycle!!!

You sound like you are new at this. There is SO much bad genetics in the Pomeranian as a breed. My friend has two 'well bred' Poms that she has done agility with and has had to retire both before 4 years of age due to genetic problems like bad knees, etc.

You should really just spay your sweet Pomeranian and leave the breeding up to the professionals. No one in the Pomeranian breed seems to do it right anyway so why add to the bad mix?

PLEASE don't breed your puppy!!

IF you insist on breeding her, you must wait until she has had at LEAST one heat cycle that you have not bred her on. Breeding on the first heat cycle can cause serious damage, and death, to a young female dog.

You also must do health screens to rule out any genetic problems she might be a carrier for and make sure that the stud you breed her to has also had the same testing done on him. Hips and elbows checked (OFA or penn-hip, which can't be done until 2 years of age), eyes checked, etc etc.

If done right, breeding your dog will not make you ANY money, in fact it will cost you money. Only breeders that have a LOT of experience and know-how and 'ins' with vets, etc, can make any money off of breeding.

Please, follow Bob Barker's advice and be a responsible pet owner — have your little baby spayed! I beg you!!

How horrible. Please do not mate your Pomeranian Puppy Girl.

Your Pomeranian is still only a puppy.
