Breeder Interviews

"Meet Your Breeder" articles appeared in The Basenji magazine between 2006 and 2011. These articles are reported here.


The American Kennel Club has developed a site with Breeder Education Courses: "Training isn't just for pets – here's your chance to learn too. Visit the AKC Breeder Education Platform designed to support your continuing education needs. Couse topics include introduction to breeding, genetics, anatomy, whelping and nutrition." This site has a tremendous amount of information from basics to in depth. It is worth a number of visits. AKC has no charge for studying this material online.
