Starting out as an inexperienced breeder, I purchase several books on breeding and whelping. This book was one of them. This by far was the best. It was easy to read, easy to understand, and had everything you need to know to be a successful breeder and do it correctly. I wished I had only purchased this book and not wasted my money on the others. I have now since whelped 4 litters and plan on continuing being a responsible and knowledgeable breeder. Since my first litter I have always went back to this book to refresh everything I need to know. It is something that is kept right beside my whelping box during the last few days of pregnancy and during the whelping. This is a must have for anybody inexperienced in whelping and rearing puppies and for anybody who is whelping and rearing puppies that is looking for more knowledge about it. A great book. I can't say enough about it.
We have referred to this book throughout the pregancy and for the care of the puppies. It is easy to read, and no experience is needed. The spiral binding makes it easy to have open and look at the dog at the same time. Very concise and informative.
My friend's dog was having puppies, so we bought this book for her. She said it really helped, and there was trouble for the third one, but she's okay.
During the birth of our litter of 7 puppies, we followed the book exactly, step by step. It was %100 accurate. This was our first litter. We didn't know what we were doing and were stressed out through the whole process. It is an easy read, follow their directions/instructions and you can't go wrong. It's a proven method. A flip through book with an easy flip binder made it easy to read and birth the puppies....our magnificent 7. Number 7 puppy lived, thanks to the instructions!
I think this book is great!My 1 year old Weimaraner, was going to have puppies and I didn't now what to do and this book told me what to do step throw step!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
