Run a checkup
Before you end up selecting the dogs that you want to breed, you need to get both of them checked out by a vet. The vet will be able to determine if there are any problems with the dogs, and if they happen to have any genetic problems.
At the same time they will also be able to determine if the dogs will be able to breed successfully, which is something you need to know in order to go ahead with the whole process.
Don’t rush your dog into breeding with other dogs. You need to give the dog some time, in order for it to mentally want to reproduce. With miniature Schnauzers it tends to take as many as eighteen months before they finally realize that they need to breed.
For this very reason take your time and avoid rushing your dog into doing anything.
Check vaccinations on dogs
Make sure that both the dogs have gotten their vaccination shots and are good to breed. The female is more important in this case, since the female could easily pass any diseases and germs to the puppies that might be born later on.
Opt to have one experienced dog
Out of the two dogs that are going to be breeding, it is smarter to have one that has already participated in the breeding activities in the past. This is because if both the dogs are new to it, they might not know what to do and it could end up with nothing happening in the end.
