How Old Does a Male Dog Need to Be to Be Able to Breed?

Answer

A male dog needs to be at least 8 months old before you breed. If you plan on registering the puppies, the American Kennel Club will not register puppies if the father is less then 8 months old. The male dog will also be more fertile after it is 8 months old, so you have a better chance at conception.
