I agree with its worthiness. I just got my copy in the mail a few days ago, I think it was $6-8 at amazon.com plus I think $2-3 for shipping? total was around $10 maybe $12. I am still in the beginning of the book, not sure what page (its in the bedroom, Im too lazy right now to go find out exactly where I am in it). So so far it is just interesting sutff, some I knew and some I didnt but since I am not a breeder none is usefull at the moment. I dont plan on breeding dogs, ever, but if that changes (I could decide in a few years that I HAVE to breed) I will certainly find this book handy and read it a few hundred more times. I did flip through and there are quite a few chapters about after the pups go to new homes, when they are 6 months old etc about crate training, obedience training, house breaking, nutrition?, socializing etc. though I already know quite a bit about those topics I dont doubt I will learn something/things that are new to me, or atleast a method or 12 that are new to me that I can incorporate into Rorys' training, maybe even into Striders (1 1/2 year old gsd) training/socialization.
The way I feel about it is nobody EVER knows EVERYTHING about any given topic. There is always something to learn. So if someone tells me "____ is a good book about dog training/nutrition/phsycology/etc; or about lawn care/home improvement, marriage, wildlife, bird watching, rock climbing/etc" I will read it.

i was hoping my picture was worth a thousand words..how could you look at BB and her 14 puppies and not see why a railing would be a total necessity?

Good grief....with a dog with 14 puppies, I would think a bottle of vodka and some orange juice would be a total necessity, rofl. That was one thing I liked about the Manchesters.......although Janet, my first Manchester who arrived pregnant had 8 puppies!!!!!! And I think Nikki had 7 pups. The Manchesters have heart failure if one of their pup make even a peep.

I had heart failure with the Dobes until the pups were about 3 weeks old!!!!! Definitely a raid with them and also the Whippets.

Bless her old heart, Bb was not called Mother Superior for nothing..i will find the link to her story. She is long gone now..and so are the puppies..and so is old boss, but the education is there. I learned a great deal about caring for puppies and was given either pick of the litter (a very weathly payoff) or the money each time. There will never be a good old gurl like her again..RIP Blitz and Bows BB.
here's the link http://www.chazhound.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2598 not a well written story at all sorry.

those that use whelping boxes without rails. there has to be a space where if the mother leans back she doesn't crush the pup.

I agree i think that rails should always be used no matter what size the dog

What do you do?
Since I am asking all these questions lately, this is one thing I was wondering about???

Let me take a wild guess, since I am not a breeder it will probably be wrong, but it will be fun:

That would be 3-4 weeks old, my guess would be to start them on gruel???
I believe most start worming at 2 weeks or so......
Yes, thats my guess....gruel.

Is that right, grammy?
