The only domestic pet breeding animals that may need to be kept in cage (and I mean LARGE enclosures) may be stud tomcats and that is because of the spraying.

As Rottielover said, a bitch or queen in season must be separated to keep an undesired breeding from taking place, and this is something a responsible breeder would do - not breed a bitch to any dog every time she is in heat.

Anyone who breeds so many dogs they must be kept in cages is breeding to produce pets to make money from, and that is backyard breeding or puppymilling and is not reputable or ethical.
