COURSE TOPICS

1. Why Should You Perhaps Choose a Female?

This topic covers the advantages of choosing a female dog

2. Female Dog Management

Before you even think about arranging to collect your female puppy from the breeder you must get ready and make all the arrangements to welcome her to your home and into your lives

3. Feeding and Nourishment

This topic promotes the growth, sustains health and allow for successful breeding, it goes without saying that as it is for humans, correct feeding for dogs is crucial

4. Educating Your Female Puppy

Your puppy will soon discover that she has so much information to absorb about her new life with her new human pack

5. Planning Ahead for Breeding

You have to plan ahead to breed from your pet. So many people do not. And if you don't, you may find trouble and heartache ahead, not to mention all the time and money you may end up spending in error

6. Pregnancy and Whelping

This topic covers the pregnancy, so 20 to 30 days into the pregnancy, and following the mating, it may be possible, just for a few days, for the vet to feel the very tiny marble-size foetuses in the female's uterus

7. Care of the Newly Whelped Female

Your female has a rather stressful few weeks ahead of her until her puppies gain some independence and the pressure on her decreases

8. Anatomy and Physiology

This topic covers the signs and frequency of heat in females

9. Medical Problems Specific to Females

It is imperative to identify any illness effectively and efficiently. Not only will any early identification and early action be much more effective, but also equally as important to prevent your family pet from unnecessary pain

10. Anatomy and Physiology

This topic will finally cover things like first aid and what to do in emergencies

Great course

Travelled down from London for this course and it was brilliant. The staff were amazing and the tutor Dave was very professional and informative. Its a whole day of learning and study but I was engaged throughout. Got to see first hand into the fertility clinic how some procedures are carried out. Highly recommend. Im now shopping for my next course.

Great Knowledgable Course

This course is perfect for anyone wanting to breed their dog wether it be to a professional level or just a one off with their beloved pet I truly recommend this course to those who have little to no knowledge of breeding before they go ahead to breed as it would help massively in every stage from the selecting of a male to the rearing and sales of the puppies. I’ve been breeding many years and still learnt a few things.
