It depends on the breed but in smaller breeds most responsible breeders stop breeding around age 6-7 years old.
If your dog is older you might want to have her checked to make sure liver, kidneys and heart are all functioning OK and that she is in good enough shape to handle another litter.
Hope this helps you!
