Underage Sire

Underage Sire

A sire that is under the age of maturity before mating. It is recommended that males should not used for breeding until clearances are done around 18 months of age and they should never be used before a year of age. AKC views an underage sire one that is under 8 months of age but many breed clubs have specific ages in regards to the breeding of their member’s dogs.
