Couple of questions

5938 Views 12 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  snowball
Looking for mini-labradoodle pup and have a couple of questions about processes by which these dogs are typically bred.

1. Any advantages/disadvantages/problems with a puppy bred through artificial insemination, rather than traditional mating of male and female parent dogs?

2. Anything to recommend or argue against breeding of a regular, full-sized labradoodle mother to toy (rather than miniature) poodle father?

Thanks for any input you all can provide.

I would not and do not reccomend breeding a large full size to a mini. I just don't see how this could be good for the bone structure I would only do within 4 inches of the other. So like someone else mentioned you can get smaller with smaller parents it takes longer for a breeder to get what they want size wise but I would think much better for the puppies, patience is a virtue remember that!

On AI it's no different than a natural mating no concerns at all, other than the litter might be smaller if the semon isn't good.
