    Bird names: Twix and Bounty :D

    Before you consider your dog to have puppies (I asume you are talking about your own dog), you should over think a number of facters.
    - why is she suitable (only looks or character or because you would like to have a puppy from her aren't enough), why would you want to breed with her?
    - health results (HD/ED etc., I don't now which are all needed but atleast these two)
    - overall health (is she sick a lot/allergies)
    - family (how is the character of her litermates/their health results)
    - overall built (no weak polses, too arched back etc.)
    - have you considered the riscs
    - there are already a lot of dogs (in shelters/being put down becuase of that)
    - will you be able to find enough suitable puppy buyers?
    - do you have the time to be busy with the litter for at least 8 weeks (socializing etc.)
    - are you willing to take responsibility for the pups later on (when they are returned by their owners or appear to have HD or something like that).
    - if she comes from a puppy mill/pet shop, I'd advice not to do it, those dogs sadly don't have a good overall health

    A good age is at least 2,5 years, some dogs aren't ready untill later. Earlier is not adviced!

    I like the name Clover.... :)
    I just want to repeat what Mutt said. Also, don't just figure you will make money, with all the risks and expenses of puppies, most reutable breeders breed as a hobby, because if you raise the pups properly there's not much money to be made. Not to turn you off from breeding, but just make sure you have a very good reason to.
