What is the age reputable breeders breed their minis ?

I say 2, but many many breeders breed before that age. Minis can have hip dysplasia and eye problems, so I think as with the larger poodles that they should hold off and make sure no issues crop up.

I say two as well; better safe than sorry right? However many smaller dogs mature faster so if I was happy w/ a breeder overall I wouldn't write them off for breeding an 18 month old.

I don't know how old the dog was when bred so lol I just saw that they where not two years yet.

I understand that small dogs mature faster I just wanted to see what was normal for mini's. I think its backwards to try to breed a dog first then try to show them after..... that does not make sense to me.
