When she has proved herself to be breeding quality by either doing pretty well in dog shows or in a dog sport (such as Agility) AND when she has had extensive health tests (on hips, eyes, etc.) done and has passed them ALL. The right time is when you yourself have done all the research (years required) and decide that you will go through all the hassle and hardships. Don't breed for any other reason than to improve your favorite breed. Don't breed for money (because you won't make much), don't breed for fun (because it won't be fun), and don't breed for family who wants a puppy. Why not refer that family to a shelter or a reputable breeder you know? Read this:
After reading the info inside the link, do you actually want to go through that trouble just for your dog to have puppies? Unless you truly want to improve the breed, save yourself and your some troubles and have her spayed and enjoy her life with you.

For a simple answer, 2 days after she ovulates. I usually do it again 2 days after the first breeding also.

Once she has proven herself to be a superior example of the breed as judged by outside observers (meaning, dog shows) and has attained at least a CGC obedience title to show that she has an excellent temperament for a companion dog. And after you speak to a reproduction-specialist veterinarian about breeding, and had her evaluated for common genetic diseases and disorders (luxating patellas are very common in toy breeds) and made sure she doesn't have any problems she could pass on to future generations. And after you've talked to many many other breeders in your breed to find out what the potential problems are, how much it will cost (if you do it right, breeding never makes you money).
And after you've taken a look at this flow chart:
