Product Description

Size Name:Pack Of 1

Product Description

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.

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 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!

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..

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!!

A super book packed with in-depth information, but written in language that the layman will easily understand. Not just for breeders or those with entire bitches, it explains more about the bitch than I learned in years of working in veterinary practice. Anyone who wants to understand their bitch will find this book excellent value for money.
