In my top 3 favourites for repro books.
Reviewer: Diane Richardson
This book is a recent purchase by me and it has immediately joined my other favorite two canine reproduction books, so now I have 3 favorites!
Less technical then the other two but FILLED with the kind of info you only learn through actually breeding and working with a top flight repro vet
I think any breeder of dogs no matter how long you have been at it, will find this book very useful
Reviewer: Carla Slabaugh
So I may not have read ALL of the breeding books but I have read quite a few. This one is by far one of my favorites. I have even purchased it for a friend of mine and have let another friend borrow a copy. I felt it was very important for them to read this book as they are active breeders who are interested in bettering the breed. This book covers areas where other books have left gaps. Out of all my ‘Breeding n Whelping’ books, this makes my list as a must read.
