Some of the biggest things to consider first are:
Health--making sure you have fat, healthy animals
Age/size--make sure your female is at least 2 years old and nice and big
Genetics--unrelated pair

Then you may want to give them a slightly cooler, dryer period for 1-2 months, followed by a warm wet period. Water seems to be the biggest trigger.
Then you want to make sure the female has an adequate lay area--frillies tend to have a higher likelyhood of egg binding than say a bearded dragon.
Make sure you have your incubator set up ahead of time too.
They are likely to breed for awhile (multiple clutches).
Have fun!!!

:was wondering what kind of things I should consider...also any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
