This book is wonderful. I am a first time breeder and this book provided so much information in just the first few pages, it was amazing. The author Muriel Lee is great and gives direct and concise directions on the birthing process and the raising and close watching of the pups. My 10 standand poodle pups are 2 weeks old now and are large and thriving - we almost lost 2 of them, but with our knowledge from this book we were able to revive them. They are all now happy, fat and very healthy. Thanks to the wonderful insite of Muriel Lee, photos and the wonderfully informative book.
Great book - definately a must have for the breeder!

Impressive photos and very comprehensive whelping instructions. This book is exactly what it says it is - a guide to whelping and rearing. Lots of thorough explanations on the process of whelping (very helpful to a beginner) with language that is clear and on point. Covers all sorts of contingencies with sensible information. My favorite book in a library of over a dozen standards. Highly recommend!

This book is fantastically helpful, in answering your questions and dispelling your fears, whether it's your first litter, or your "umpteenth" litter. Arlene Millman, author of BOOMERANG - A MIRACLE TRILOGY (The tale of a remarkable Boston Terrier).
NOT TO TECHNICAL BUT VERY INFORMATIVE

I found this book to be very informative not only on things that need to be doneat time of welping, but also things that you hope as a pet lover and breeder that will never happen but you need to be aware of these things. The chapter dealing with sick puppies was sad but very upfront and I think that it was a very neccessary part of the book. As a beginner I learned alot about the welping the welping process and it gave me the information to talk to my vet so that when the time comes I will be ready. This book was loaned to me by a breeder and I am now purchasing my own copy.
Practical, easy to read, realistic and honest.

This is the only book that addresses tough issues such as when to let a puppy die. A difficult subject that most ignore. She gives practical, no nonsense information that is necessary when the unthinkable happens and tough decisions must be made.
