Expanded Description:

Everything you don’t know about canine reproduction
Canine Reproduction and Whelping brings together information that will be invaluable to today’s dog breeders because it helps to fill in the gaps in knowledge of even the most experienced breeder. Learn how facts about human reproduction, conception and birth get unknowingly mixed up with the very different canine side of things. Then learn how to use this information to have more successful breedings and healthier pups. Author Myra Harris combines her years of experience as a labor and delivery nurse with her passion for breeding dogs to give you practical and unusual information.

Easy to understand and fun to read. You will learn:
• How to prepare your young stud dog for breeding.
• How to tell when the bitch is ready to be bred.
• How truly fragile sperm is and how to ensure their health and survival.
• When Artificial Insemination is preferred, how to collect sperm, and how to inseminate.
• About unseen causes for unsuccessful breedings—bacteria, viruses, yeast.
• About the role of progesterone in breeding success and how to use it to succeed.
• About easy, normal whelpings contrasted with nightmare whelping experiences.
• C-sections made understandable and how to handle aftercare of the bitch.
• How to remove dewclaws with the least trauma to mom and pups.

Myra Savant-Harris, R.N. is a breeder of Cavalier King Charles Spaniels and author of the highly regarded book/DVD Puppy Intensive Care A Breeder’s Guide to Care of Newborn Puppies. Myra combines her life-long interest in animals with her professional experience as a labor and delivery and neonatal care nurse to bring you this information. In addition to continuing work as an R.N., Myra gives seminars around the country on her methods and is currently at work on her next book about reproduction and whelping. Besides her interest in breeding dogs, Myra is an accomplished pianist and vocalist. She lives in Tacoma, Washington with her husband Dan Harris and her Cavaliers.

Canine Reproduction & Whelping by Myra Savant-Harr, June 8, 2009
Reviewer: Tonya Williamson
I credit this book to saving the life of my girl and her puppies.

My girl was not going in to seconder whelp. Her temp had dropped a full two degrees and I still did not have puppies. I called my vet and they told me I was over reacting that her due date was not for two days , to just wait. Well I did not wait I called around until I found a vet who would listen to me and get my girl in. We had to do a c-section and lost one puppy, but where able to save the other three and my girl . The vet who finally seen us said Raven would never had whelped the puppies on her own and the puppies where already detached and would not have made it to the due date. I would not know what I would have done with out this book.
 
Essential Part of Any Breeder's Tool Kit, February 26, 2009
Reviewer: Barbara
This is the book every breeder - whether novice or experienced -needs in her toolkit. There is so much information to give you confidence. Despite my years of experience, I learned alot and you will as well.
 
So you want to breed?, December 4, 2006
Reviewer: Pamela Hoffman
This book is so full of information,that even long time breeders will probably find out something new! It is a must have if you have ever had trouble getting a bitch pregnant. Clearly explains pre breeding testing, and reasons for it, in easy to understand language. If you are just starting out I would highly recommend learning the problems and fixes this book can offer. Mrs Harris is an informative and easy to understand writer.
