Canine Pregnancy and Whelping Course

Canine Pregnancy & Whelping Online Course

Our "Canine Pregnancy and Whelping" online breeder course is aimed at people interested in having a litter of puppies or breeders wanting to further their career development by having completed a CPD recognised course. 

The course is extensive and will inform you on all aspects of dog breeding from mate selection to whelping and includes links to videos of a whelping and its stages. For novice and hobby breeders the whelping is commonly the most stressful part of breeding and being able to "see" a whelping, prior to being a midwife, means you can be prepared for what is to come. 

There is easy to read information on the following;

  • Deciding to breed
  • UK Breeding Law
  • Mate selection
  • When to breed
  • The mating process
  • The pregnancy
  • Whelping preparation
  • Whelping (including videos)
  • Aftercare of the bitch and puppies

The course is an online, home learning course which you can do at your own pace. 

There is a short questionnaire to complete at the end which involves some multiple choice and some short sentence answers. Once you have completed this we will issue you with your Smartstart Achievement Award and CPD Certification. 

The cost is £75. To enrol please click here. We look forward to working with you to breed better and raise better puppies in the name of responsible and ethical dog breeding.
