welcome and HI
i'd say do tons of research, get some books and also do Hip tests 1st
i also talked to other breeders via phone
taked to 3vets and 2 reproduction centers to-date
also doing searches on this forum is great!
i went back to 2006 and read a whole year's worth of topics on breeding!
was invaluable in some ways
i am NOT a breeder yet...am testing my doodle's hips monday and if good will do further testing and then hopefully breed him
and my own breeder where i got all 3 doodles has also been quite helpful as i help her out with her breeding dogs, litters and more.
OH if i can find it there's a link that tells of the START UP costs which is costly...i found it by doing searches on google and yahoo
not sure if i have it.........if i do i'll post it later today
Welcome! I'm not a breeder either, but just wanted to welcome you to this forum. There is a wealth of information here and the breeders here will be very helpful. Best wished for your endeavor! Please post pictures of your doodle because we love pictures on this forum!
