What is it about?
This is the first book to be devoted entirely to the female of the canine species. It offers a complete and comprehensive guide to both the experienced breeder and the novice bitch owner, with information on how bitches think, function and learn, the procedure for whelping and puppy rearing and advice on how to recognise the signs of sickness and those diseases to which bitches are prone and what action to take. Set out in an easy to follow format, the 12 chapters are divided into four sections on:
- Care of your bitch
- Breeding from your bitch
- Anatomy, physiology and medical problems
- Useful information and data.
