Breeding from your dog

Have you ever thought about breeding from your bitch but didn't know where to start?

Our information leaflet has been compiled by Mairi who has many years of experience breeding and showing her dogs.

It may answer many of your questions and covers subjects such as:

  • What's the best age for your bitch to have puppies ?
  • When is the right time to mate her?
  • What is the best food for a pregnant bitch?
  • The pregnancy timetable
  • What to expect when she goes into labour.
  • When to call for help.
  • The development of the puppies.
