MANY BOOKS AVAILABLE ARE TO BE FRANK A LOAD OF TWADDLE AND VERY OUTDATED, DOT BE ATTRACTED BY RUBBISH IT WILL DO YOU NO GOOD OR YOUR DOGGY.

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO REMEMBER WHEN WANTING TO BREED IS THE REASON WHY YOU WANT TO DO THAT. BREEDING HOLDS A LOT OF RESPONSIBILITY AND TAKES VAST STRENGTH OF MIND , IT WILL CAUSE TAERS, HEARTACHE, PAIN AND CAN BRING JOY…SO DON’T UNDERTAKE IT UNLESS YOU ARE FULLY PREPARED FOR EVERY EVENT FROM BIRTH TO A LITTER AT 12 WEEKS.

WHAT CHANGES DURING A WHELP ?
HOUSEHOLD CANINE HIERARCHY
HOUSEHOLD SMELLS
SLEEP PATTERNS
LOSS OF MONEY
HUMAN HEALTH OFTEN DECLINES
BREEDING COSTS MONEY IF YOU CANNOT AFFORD TO DO IT THEN DON’T START IT !
