This hits home. My husband has Beagles he hunts with and we have been arguing over this subject for 20 years. All his dogs are in tact and sometimes it is a mess when one of the girls is in heat. He keeps the males and females seperated but still they know one is in heat and they will bark all day and night.

I have 3 German Shorthaired Pointers and my oldest is spayed and she hunts almost every week end during hunting season. The other just had a litter of puppies, but I will have her spayed soon. The youngest one I am showing, so she can't be spayed yet. I'll breed her 1 or 2 times, than have her spayed. I have talked to many people that thought they would breed their dog, but either their dog got pregnant too young, or with the wrong bred. Breeding is not as easy as people think. I do O.F.A. x-rays, which certify their hips. I also do eye cerfs, which show no signs of genetic eye problems. Taking care of a litter properly takes a lot of time and effort. If someone isn't going to do it the right way, they should get the dog spayed or neutered. All the puppies from my liter are spayed or neutered, and they are great hunters.
