Actually, ti can be healthier for them to be bred on back to back heat cycles. Females bred on back to back heat cycles have a much smaller chance of developing infections such as pyometra. Also, dogs bounce back from litters pretty quickly. As for some puppies being still born, there is ALWAYS a chance of that, no matter how healthy the dog is. It's sad, but it happens.

Well, I guess  you'd better not move to the US if you want regulations about something like breeding dogs? May I ask where you live, BM? Maybe the seller in Holland should have not been in such a big hurry to get rid of that dog? Had he kept her until she came into season, she'd not be having another litter in 6 months.

That's correct, hallix. Dr. Huchinson, one of the most respected repro vets in the US, says that too.

Aye...depending on when she comes into season (and locating a suitable stud dog), I plan on doing a back to back breeding with my bitch. It will be her last litter. She will finish her grand championship and be spayed so we can focus on her performance titles.

Have also read that it is healthier for bitches to be bred back to back. There are numerous studies from several different sources available to read, blackmalinois. Unfortunately, I have seen/know of bitches from big time "breeders" bred back to back to back with maybe 3 breaks in their lifetime. That should be illegal.

Let's specify that, yes it is true in many cases it is healthier for the bitch to NOT skip a heat between breeding, that is under certain circumstances. As long as the bitch is healthy and recovers from the whelp well. Not all bitches bounce right back. The breeding back to back is partly based on the premise that during a dog's heat cycle the uterus goes through a harsh process if the bitch is not bred and does not carry a litter. There is a balance however, if the rest of the physical condition, muscle mass, body fat, etc, has not recovered from the last litter, then the bitch may be better off in the long run to skip the heat and allow to gain weight in order to better support the litter during the pregnancy.
