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.

"A Breeder's Companion is an invaluable resource for conscientious breeders, both new and experienced. The multiple record keeping chart and practical information will be a go-to resource each time you are blessed with a litter of puppies." --Jamie Adkins, DVM

"In A Breeder's Companion, Leila Grandemange has put together an excellent handbook which will be of great assistance to both novice and experienced breeders alike.
