I initially started working with breeders and doing canine reproduction work because there was a need in the community. After helping produce a few beautiful litters and experiencing the joy from my clients I had this feeling of exhilaration! Not only was the process enjoyable for everyone, I love that it further advances the breed. It’s an amazing gift to be able to help people get something they truly desire.
There are many stages and phases of this process and being able to guide clients through them all is very rewarding. From pre-breeding exams and certifications of everything from hips to elbows to knees to discussions of types of breedings (natural vs artificial) and how to time them to improve our chances of success. I love being able to share ultrasound videos and images with clients who may have never seen anything like that before and counting fetuses to know how many to expect. I get to take clients through the stages of labor and delivery and be available for Cesarean sections if necessary and be able to be the first hands on a new life. I get to watch the puppies grow and see them for their first wellness visits and vaccines. It is truly an honor to have helped many clients bring puppies into this world. I would love to be able to help others do the same.
