Designer breeds are a popular choice for a great deal of dog lovers out there.
People generally like the fact that designer breeds are typically healthier dogs because they are less likely to end up with certain ailments that can be found in purebreds. They also like designer breeds because typically dogs are mixed with other dogs to get specific features that are wanted by the prospective dog owner.
For instance, a person who loves dogs but is allergic may lean towards a designer breed like a golden doodle. This is a cross between a Golden Retriever and a Poodle to make a dog that is low shedding for people with allergies.
One of these popular designer breed choices nowadays is the Pomsky, which is a combination between a Siberian Husky and a Pomeranian. This breed can also be referred to as a Pomeranian Husky.
This dog is popular because it’s a dog that looks like a Husky without having the large size they typically come in. These dogs are very expensive as it takes a lot to breed these two very different sized dogs.
The breeding can only be done through artificial insemination because it can be very dangerous for these dogs to mate naturally. It will typically require a female Husky and a male Pomeranian, both of which will be purebred.
There is a lot of precision required with this process.
The first step is to collect the semen from the male. If there is no way to keep this specimen chilled or frozen, it will need to be inserted into the female immediately. If you do choose to store it, it will only stay good for a day chilled. If you freeze it, you should be aware that this will decrease the likelihood that the insemination will be successful.
You cannot inseminate a female until the time is right, around the time of her ovulation. This is why it is recommended to wait until this time to collect the semen.
The best time to inseminate the female is around 4 days before ovulation begins. Every 48 hours after this, more of the specimen should be inserted until the last deposit is used. This should be 48 hours after ovulation is done. This will increase the success of the insemination and increase the size of the litter.
Collecting the specimen can be just as difficult as the actual process of insemination.
This is why people often use a female that is in heat to encourage the male dog to allow for collection. The female dog in heat will arouse the male, making the collection process more efficient. The male will go to mount the female in heat, which is when a deposit receptacle is placed in the way and the specimen is collected.
This can be a very complicated process that often only experienced breeders or veterinarians are able to do successfully. Hopefully this clears a bit why Pomskies are so expensive compared to other breeds.
