Dogs/Chihuahua breeding


At what age should you stop breeding Chihuahuas? I have a 4 year old male and am thinking of studding him out in the next year or 2. Will that be too old for him to be a stud? Of course before studding him I plan on getting all the required testing done.


Most breeders can use a male for a long time, however, after 10 years of age you must get DNA on him for AKC.  As long as he is comfortable and not hurting (arthritis, etc) you should be able to breed him once or twice a year until he is over 10 years.
