Intact Males
by: Donna

Why do you want to breed? It's a huge commitment and responsibility.

Responsible breeders will breed to improve the breed and ensure that the crucial socialization and handling by many different people coming into the home and onto the property takes place.

If you mean males and females, they will be distracted when the female comes in heat. The females and males will also tend to wander in search of the opposite sex not intact.

More than one intact male will fight between themselves. Two females may also not get along.

You will be better off to spay/neuter all your dogs.

If you must breed, you will want to talk to the breeders of your Pyrs so they can mentor you.
