"There are many books on breeding dogs, but Ann's book is so on-target and comprehensive that it has become a bible among successful breeders. The news that Howell is making this modern classic available again is to the benefit of both new and future generations of aspiring breeders."
-- From the new Foreword by Wendell J. Sammet, The American Kennel Club's first Breeder of the Year (2002)
The bible of quality dog breeding, The Joy of Breeding Your Own Show Dog is a must-have for novice and veteran breeders alike, covering everything from developing a viable breeding program to genetics to whelping, raising, and socializing puppies. Written in easy-to-understand language by renowned dog breeder Ann Seranne, this classic takes you step by step through the entire process of breeding a successful litter, from the moment of conception to a dog's first show. You'll see how to select a method of breeding, evaluate your own breeding stock and the potential of a litter, avoid the pitfalls of whelping, and properly care for the litter until the puppies are ready to go to their new homes. Ann Seranne's deep love of dogs, her vast knowledge, and her expertise make this the only guide you will ever need to become a successful breeder.
From the Inside Flap: Delightfully written in easy-to-understand language by renowned dog breeder Ann Seranne, The Joy of Breeding Your Own Show Dog has long been the reference of choice for top dog breeders. Now, whether you're looking to breed your first litter or you already have breeding experience, you can benefit from Seranne's many years of intense study and scientific research in this new release of her classic guide.
Breeding quality dogs is a privilege that requires hard work, commitment, talent, and passion, as well as professional-level knowledge of such topics as genetics, bloodlines, anatomy and locomotion, and whelping. You'll discover what you should know before breeding dogs and how to determine whether you're ready—physically, mentally, and emotionally—to take on the responsibility. Seranne then takes you through the mechanics of heredity, revealing in layman's terms how to spot the good and bad qualities in your own breeding stock and use pedigrees to develop and continue a viable breeding program.
After you've chosen the ideal bitch and stud for mating, Seranne provides clear, step-by-step instructions that explain how to: Produce dogs of good health and temperament Whelp, raise, socialize, and condition puppies Spot the warning signs of an ailing pup and take immediate action Identify the dogs best suited for showing and breeding Keep accurate, detailed records of each litte
