Age of parents when they start breeding
I feel like I may have found a little guy I want to make mine! He is almost 6 months old and from a breeder not too far from my home. I'm curious what views are on the ages breeders start breeding their dogs-- I am pretty sure I read on the cavalierhealth.org website that they should be at least two. This little guys mom was born in December of 2007 and had her first litter 9/29/10 so she's good but the dad was born in June of 2008 and had his first litter 3/31/10. Should I be concerned that he was not yet 2? Everything else in this fellas line is great, even some MRI testing done as his grandparents are all from either the UK or Germany.
