If you are fortunate enough to own a good working bitch and wish to breed from her, experienced working dog breeder, Michael Brander has written this book for you. He guides the novice step by step through the basic procedures for rearing a litter of sound working pups. He gives first-hand advice on assessing your bitch's suitability, choosing the potential sire, arranging the mating and, if all goes according to plan, care of the pregnant bitch. In readiness for the birth, the author runs through the preparations for whelping and gives reassuring advice on what to expect and how to cope with the arrival of the puppies. Aftercare of the bitch and her pups is included, and there are helpful notes on how to go about selling puppies to good homes. First-time breeders will find this book particularly helpful.
