Reviewer: A reader Dan Rice, DVM has produced an excellent handbook to guide you through the dangerous shoals of breeding your dog. Careful and up to date information on every aspect of breeding makes this book a worthy addition to the breeder's bookshelf, and is equally valuable to the novice and veteran. Especially reassuring is Rice's detailed examination of when to and when not to call the vet. Essential reading, and sure to comfort on that long and lonely night when your girl is whelping. Highly recommended.
