From the Back Cover
Chris Walkowicz and Bonnie Wilcox, D.V.M., are both veteran dog fanciers who bring a wealth of personal and professional experience to every chapter. Covering topics from planning the breeding (should I or shouldn't I?) to problems encountered in breeding, delivery and neonatal care, the authors offer viable solutions to innumerable problems, whether old or new. Two highly extensive appendices on breed idiosyncrasies, compiled from correspondence with longtime fanciers as well as from research from veterinary journals, complete the abundance of information offered here. All of this is complemented by original drawings by the well-known canine artist Mary Jung.

Included between these covers is information on:
*Evaluating your breeding stock
*Choosing a stud dog
*Pre- and post-mating care
*What you REALLY need on hand while birthing the litter
*Readily readable and understandable explanation of genetics
*What can go wrong, and how to prevent it
and so much more that I can't recall. This book is a lifesaver. I should know--at the age of 14, I bred and whelped my first litter of Labradors with the help of this book, and one of those puppies is a Champion in Thailand today. On a scale of 1-10... 11!!!

I found the getting prepared for birth and the actual whelping event info to be very complete, and understandable. I would have liked more info on AFTER the birthing - more on the care and upkeep. My puppies quickly outgrew their whelping box and we had to provide larger accomodations. Being December, it was too cold to kennel them outside. So we had inprovise and come up with a set-up in the basement garage. I would have liked ideas on how to contain them, how to better organize their space, how to manage the poop and cleanup process better (exhausting).
I also would have liked more info on placing puppies in good homes, the AKC process, owner contracts etc.
But overall a good read, while lacking in some areas and too detailed in others.
