SUMMER BREAK June - August. Will pick up with webinars in the Fall.

Things I have REALLY gotten from Canine education workshops:

  • 3/1/14 Webinar on Theriogenology (study of reproduction) Club Symposium: Canine Reproduction - UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine - AKC recommendation - I learn many things from each symposium, as equal as any other. The thing I brought away from this one is the gained knowledge of Semen Freezing Artificial Insemination (AI). I have been freezing Bruno and Daniel's semen the past year, and this helped me grasp the value and extent the technology has come in the years. 2nd most important gain would be REALLY understanding more on the females reproduction cycle, which will help me in the timing of AI with the frozen semen for the girls.
  • Jan 2014 USDA workshop by MN Pet Breeders Assc. to cover new Nov. 18, 13 regulations imposed.
  • Spring 2012 MN Pet Breeders Assc. seminar: A breeding female is born with a specific number of eggs, no more. When able to breed, they should be allowed to breed as if they don't, it actually wears out their uterus more so then actual pregnancy and possible female disease pyometra which they must be spay to live. I still, will not breed without a good down payment list.
  • Spider webs are extremely flammable!
  • 2009 U of M Canine Symposium: Canine Renal disease in Boxers is so bad now, it is rare to find lines that do not have this. It is important to feed healthy dog food and watch for this disease.
  • 2 days at Ames, IA - Animal Vet University Canine Symposium #1 -> Pat Hastings research on canine structure - ABSOLUTELY phenomenal! Knowing what to look for and breed toward for the future health structure of the poodle. ALTHOUGH understanding chiropractic care technology was not considered and DEFINITELY should be considered by breeders in choosing a litter pup among her recommendations. You are always welcome to talk to me about this.
  • At the same workshop 2005? at Ames, IA I did my best to find the specific vet professor who gave the dog food talk at the Iowa State Animal University I attended for two days . She specifically talked about feeding adult dog food to growing puppies to all the breeders in the room as a practice, not puppy marketed brands. They grow so fast and the stable "good quality" adult dry dog food works just fine, not to get taken in by the puppy industry marketing. So, I took what a canine Vet Professor spoke and referenced data to prove her knowledge, and the scientist I work with here in TX knows and talks of. I've been feeding adult dog food to puppies and adults for over 15 years to great success. Some brands will even say "All Age levels" on their packaging. That's why I use only ADULT dog food for my puppies.
