== == * Physical maturity is when you enter into puberty and the guys start putting muscle on and the girls develop curves and breasts. Emotionally mature people are ones that can communicate well with others; are honest, loyal, have feelings for others pain and have learned from their past mistakes. They are able to retain a good relationship with the opposite sex by being thoughtful, kind, interested in that person's well being and feeling totally comfortable with them, or, they will know immediately the person they are with is not treating them well and move on. There actually is NO age limit to maturity on most levels. I have met kids from 10 + that I call "old souls" that show much more maturity than some people my age. * When you are physically mature it means your body is fully developed. When you are emotionally mature you act mature.

When considering breeding, wait till your dog is AT LEAST 15months old for small breeds and 20months for large breeds. You want your dog to be %100 physically and emotionally mature (you will be able to tell when they are calmer and a little less playful IF you know your dog) before breeding. If your dog is 18months old and isn't emotionally mature, then do not breed him. However, just because your dog seems mature at 1year, that DOES NOT mean you still breed him or her.
