Book Description

Oct 2002
Written by experts, this book is relevant to both the experienced breeder and the novice bitch owner and also serves as a comprehensive guide to those considering owning a bitch. Whether or not you intend to breed, the more you understand about how bitches function, think and learn, the more pleasure your bitch is likely to give you and the happier and healthier she will be. For those interested in breeding a litter, the procedure for whelping and puppy rearing is carefully explained. Most importantly, the book contains detailed advice on how to recognise the signs of sickness and those diseases to which bitches are prone and what action to take. The information is divided into 12 chapters arranged in four sections: Care of Your Bitch, Breeding from Your Bitch, Anatomy, Physiology and Medical Problems, Useful Information and Data

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great to keep as reference 1 Aug 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
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!
