The journey of puppy breeding is an incredible yet challenging experience for both the mother dog and the breeder. Meticulous monitoring and record-keeping play pivotal roles in ensuring a smooth and successful breeding. These records can be lifesaving, offering crucial insights into the health of both the mother and the puppies.
Every pup is unique and may have a different growth rate and development curve. Record-keeping aids in monitoring each puppy’s weight gain, feeding habits, and overall health. This becomes increasingly important in the case of larger litters where it can be challenging to keep track of each puppy’s progress individually.
Having comprehensive whelping records, including details about birth weights, weaning times, and any complications encountered, can provide invaluable data for future breeding decisions. It allows breeders to better understand their genetic lines, discern patterns, and identify potential issues in advance.
Responsible breeders arm themselves with this knowledge so that they can reduce the risks of producing puppies that end up with genetic issues. Meticulous record-keeping during puppy whelping is not just about keeping a log; it’s about creating a roadmap for ensuring the well-being of the mother and her pups, guiding future breeding decisions and helping them breed for the betterment of their chosen breed.
