THIS BOOK IS JUST SO EASY TO READ, IT TELLS THE READER EVERYTHING THEY WILL EVER NEED TO KNOW ABOUT KEEPING AND BREEDING FROM YOUR BITCH. I WISH I HAD COMMISSION FOR EVERY COPY I HAVE RECOMMENDED!! DON'T BREED A LITTER WITHOUT IT.

I found this book to be very informative giving step by step advice. From the mating procedure to the delivery of puppies it showed good advice which has helped me breed litters.
Well done!!!

This is the most read book in my collection, it has been thumbed through so many times that it is now being replaced by a nice new copy! No matter how many litters of puppies we have, I still find the advice in this book absolutely invaluable. This book should be in the collection of every dog owner, not just those who own bitches or breed.

I have had this book for about 6 years now,when I first got interested in breeding,now after new additions to our Canine Family and 5 wonderful litters(not without problems)I still find myself refering to this book occasionally. I would recommend it to anyone before getting into breeding as it's not all 'fluffy pups' and happy endings, if I were to 'knock' the book at all I would say it didn't say too much about what may go wrong.

Excellent read! This book is not only for those interested in breeding. It is a book that covers every aspect of the antomy and phisiology of a female canine. Great book to use for a reference and it will be referred to again and again!

This is a must have for anyone who needs excellent expert advice to do with their little doggie. I'm thinking about my Beagle having a litter of her own in time and this book was recommended by her breeder and a local vets. It covers lots of info and is helpful in every area.

A must have!!

Wow this is a real super book packed with in-depth information (everything you'll ever need to know) & it's not just for breeders or those with entire bitches as it explains more about the bitch than I've learned in years of owning bitches. Anyone who wants to understand their bitch as it's very interesting book & you'll find this book excellent value for money & I recommend reading it.....

I found this book very informatitive. I have just recently mated my bitch and needed to know what to expect as this is my first time having a litter, and needed a book that would tell me what I should expect.
This book is one of the best I have read, it has illistrations for you to look at, information on what to look out for before and after welping...
I would recommend this book to anyone considering having a litter..
