Fabulous Free Breeder Training from Good Dog: Avidog A 2 Z Dog Breeding

Avidog: Your Litter A to Z

Avidog’s Your litter A to Z is provided to breeders who are registered with Good Dog. It consists of several modules. The first section is about getting your breeding dogs prepared to breed and laying out your plan. It includes The Basics – Before You Breed, Tracking Bitches’ Heat Cycles, Reproductive Veterinarians, Stud Dog Exams and Semen Evaluations, Care of Breeding Dogs, Pre-Breeding Fitness and Exercise, and Bringing Bitches into Season. It also includes She’s In Season Basics, Brucellosis, Caring for Your Bitch, Timing the Breeding, Semen Evaluations, and Breeding Your Bitch.


Section 2 of Avidog Your Litter A to Z is Pregnancy and Whelping. It includes Modules The First Trimester, The Second Trimester, Placing Your Puppies, The Third Trimester and Labor & Whelping.


Section 3 focuses on the first month of the puppies lives and includes The First 48 Hours, Your Litter’s First Week, Your Litter’s Second Week, Your Litter’s Third Week and Your Litter’s Fourth Week.

And Section 4 of Avidog Your Litter A to Z includes litter management through the second month. The modules are (no surprise on some of these) Your Litter’s Fifth Week, Your Litter’s Sixth Week, Your Litter’s Seventh Week, Sending Puppies Home, Your Litter’s Eight Week and After the Eighth Week.

At SPFL we choose to keep puppies to 10 weeks, per the Puppy Culture Protocol. It is a lot more work, time, expense and poop but we have seen how these two weeks and the additional Puppy Culture exercises give pups the absolute best start.

This next one consists of 10 Modules. I am very happy to have completed this course in addition to Puppy Culture! I carefully consider all perspectives and compare it to my own philosophy for ‘fit’. 

AND….there are opportunities for puppy buyers to get training too!!!
