CCI trains its' Breeder Caretakers with "Breeder Seminars" held twice at year at the Northwest Training Center in Santa Rosa. These trainings cover a variety of topics and skills, and are presented by Esther Molina, Breeder Coordinator, Dr. Ruth Daniels, Breeder Veteranarian, and the CCI Breeder Council.

The "Breeders Digest" is the CCI Breeder Caretaker newsletter that shares articles and experiences related to the Breeder Caretaker community. (Coming soon to the web)

paws_up.jpg - 784 Bytes Most Breeder Caretakers will agree to two things:
  1. Be as prepared as you can be
  2. Remember every dog (and every litter) is different
  3. In addition most also will tell you to:

  4. Know your dog
  5. Trust your instincts

Beyond that, nearly every Breeder Caretaker has their own ideas and experiences of what works best for them when whelping and raising puppies for 8 weeks, every idea is worth sharing and so that other BC's can try it and see if it works for them. So please post your ideas to the Yahoo Breeders list, or send an email to Robyn to have it posted here.

(The best way to deal with the risk of Parvo is to prevent it! Make sure visitors wash their hands with antibacterial soap or wipes, remove or disinfect their shoes with bleach, and make sure they have not visited other puppies the same day!)
