The female is ready and willing, but the male just can't seem to hit the target but he is trying his best. Is their anyway I can help him?

If you cannot spell the name of the breed correctly, you should not be breeding them at all.

I assume you are asking how to be a responsible breeder. :-)

1. Contact a breed club for your breed. Ask for a mentor.
2. STUDY the breed standard. Learn about dog anatomy and ask your mentor to
clarify anything you don't understand.
3. Learn what genetic faults and diseases run in your breed and test for any
that can be tested for.
4. Show your dog in conformation events to see if it is of the proper
quality for breeding. Winning doesn't always mean a dog is breeding quality,
but being around so many others that know your breed and will talk to you
will do wonders for your self-education efforts!
5. Study the past history of great dogs in your breed. You will see how your
breed has improved and progressed since the beginning of the breed.
6. Study the breed standard some more! ;-)
7. Join any Yahoo groups about your breed.
8. Live, dream and study your breed.
9. Get a good book on canine reproduction, and educate yourself about the
pitfalls, problems, and proud moments of breeding. Learn about the
physiology of reproduction, such as heat cycles and venereal diseases in
dogs, potential for problems specific to your breed, and what you need to
expect at whelping.
10. Remember that whelping (giving birth) can kill your female. Being used
as a stud dog can encourage bad behaviors common in intact males such as
territorial marking, aggression, and desire to roam from home.
11. Prepare to be broke. Breeding properly is EXPENSIVE.
12. Line up potential homes for any puppies you produce and write up a
contract. Remember to include that you will be willing to take back your
puppies at any time in their lives that they might need you. If you bring
life into this world, it is your responsibility FOREVER.
13. Prepare to spend sleepless nights attending whelping females, caring for
fading puppies or puppies orphaned, and practice cleaning up after 24/7 poop

I'm sure there are many things I missed because being a responsible breeder
isn't just a job. It's a way of life. You will live dogs. 24/7/365. There
are lots of hard decisions. There is a lot of expense. There will be pain.
But, if you do your darndest to always keep the welfare of your dogs and the
future of any of their offspring, you can go to step 14.

14. Enjoy the love and success of a job well done.

This poster has no intention of being a responsible breeder. Were they trying to be responsible they would have done their research first. And the only question that was asked was how to guide the male into the bitch.

They probably don't, but then again, maybe they don't know there's a difference. Besides, who does a little education hurt? :-) I tend to waste my time trying to educate the PETA KoolAid chuggers and H$U$ mi$lead along with the money grubbers who think their dog's uterus is the path to fame and fortune. Great hobby for a former vet tech, groomer and show exhibitor of dogs who is now cripped.

FYI, Serena... you've made HUNDREDS of spelling, grammatical, and punctuation errors in your posts on this site.

Really? That's your comment? Good for you, now how about commenting on the question.

Again, if you can't spell the name of the breed you've got and the only reason you're breeding is that you have two of them in your living room that are just so cute, you shouldn't be breeding.

KCKC I probably have! I admit it! But i at least know how to spell the name of the breed i work with. Beside's everyone make's typo's and i have a whole wack of words that i know i transpose letters in.

IF you cannot spell the breed of the dog, not even CLOSE to being correct, then you probably have no clue about the breed, and breeding.
