African Boerboel Breeding

September 2, 2016

Boerboel females go into heat twice a year though it’s not uncommon to skip a heat now and again with heat cycles lasting up to 3 weeks every 6-9 months.  After breeding and once puppies have been conceived there is a period of 60-64 days before the puppies are born in litters of 4-10.  Like most puppies, provided the mother doesn’t have maternal aggression, they can be handled within the first day of birth and should be handled daily.  With such a strong minded and large breed getting them used to being handled all over, tolerating their mouth being handled and general fussing is very important.  At 3-4 weeks of age they should be weaned and able to be adopted out or purchased at 6-8 weeks.
