I have a 5 yr male, I have been thinking about breeding him. Any advice? Thank you.

He should be tested for hips (OFA), eyes (CERF), PRA, and depending on his lineage PFK.

Check his pedigree, are there champions in it? Were those dogs health tested?

Do you show or hunt your dog? Do you have homes lined up for at least 10 pups?
