Westie Breeders Are Special People

My Westie Diary

I believe it is very important that Westie breeders be honest and truthful in dealing with future families of our pups. We should strive daily to live up to expectations of a "reputable breeder". I have discovered in life it is well worth the effort to be trustworthy.

Whelping Box - I quickly put these pictures together so you can get an idea of how I do it.

Tube feeding - Tube feeding is the safest way to feed newborn puppies, orphan puppies, or a sickly puppy that needs to be supplemented.

Whelping Diary - We always anticipate with great care the whelping time. Read about Ellie's litter.

Artificial Insemination - I am always amazed at the way some people react when they find out that we artificially inseminated our females instead of allowing them to breed naturally.

Books on Breeding - My favorite books on breeding are authored by Myra Savant Harris. I have both of her books and we relied on them heavily when we were breeding Westies. All three books will be a great investment.
