Hey, one of my war dogs just gave birth to puppies, like a full year after I started chaining them.  I have not yet purchased any dogs from the humans, although I did buy 3 cows...

A dog that was chained died due to old age recently.  I wonder if that had anything to do with it.

Edit: actually I'm not even sure if that dog was chained.  I remember reassigning all my chains to younger dogs recently.

Sorry for bringing up an old thread, but searching didn't result in an answer to my question.

At one place in the wiki (chasm) it says that one restrained dog means no breeding anymore. Is this (still) the case?

Cheers

My answer hasn't changed.  I don't think caging or chaining has anything to do with it, and I've never seen a save that proves otherwise.  My answer above is how it's supposed to work.  Now, the various strange theories I've seen posted make me suspect there's a bug of some kind, but I've tried chaining, and it doesn't stop breeding for me.

ok thanks. I'll play around with it, and maybe at some point change that entry in the wiki accordingly.

Not sure if this has been resolved or whatever, but this has happened to me twice in one fortress (13+ years).  I have a LOT of war dogs, and at some point they totally stopped breeding.  No idea what caused it, but I trained every last dog I owned so that I had something like 1/8 hunting dogs, 7/8 war dogs.  I didn't get a single puppy for an entire year, until one of my marksdwarves who had a few assigned to him died in an attack.  Suddenly, they started breeding again.

Now, several years later, it's happened again to the same save.  This time I do still have some dogs.  It's currently happening in this save: http://dffd.wimbli.com/file.php?id=1474

EDIT:  Hmm... now that I've read the thread more carefully, I realize I did chain up a couple dogs and some wolves for guarding/breeding.  I'll try releasing them and see if that fixes it.

I've never tried it and there's a good chance it could make them freak out.

There's a maximum of 50 of any given type of animal on the map at a time. Once you exceed 50 you don't get any more births.
