Staying organized is an important part of being a responsible breeder. Wouldn't it be nice to have all the details of your litters recorded in one place to consult at a moment's notice? A Breeder's Companion, with space for 12 litters, was designed with that in mind. Here's what you will find inside: The book begins with useful information to help you prepare for and whelp a litter and includes a whelping equipment checklist, care tips for mother and pups, puppy development and socialization information, healthy pup vs sick pup chart, and a perpetual whelping chart. The main section of the book includes the following for each litter--sire and dam information; whelping, temperature, and weight charts; supplemental feeding charts; deworming and vaccination chart; space to note puppy evaluations; new owner information, and a photo memory page for your precious litter! The book ends with space to record Emergency Contact numbers and includes a Resource Page. Designed to help breeder's meet AKC requirements for record keeping.
Beautifully illustrated and well written.
