    or afford to buy a pair of clippers and some scissors and do it themselves!!
    i'm getting a std poodle in the near-ish future, and i certainly wont be paying £50 every 6 weeks for someone else to do what i can do at home for free.

    so instead, for any higher maintenance coated breed- are they willing and able to care for the coat correctly.

    This is a list of 10 questions dog breeders should ask potential new owners or clients.

    If the clients are bothered or getting annoyed, they do not deserve to welcome a dog in the first place; they should understand that as a responsible dog breeder, you want to place your puppies in the best families possible. You are the expert here – and they are evaluated as carefully as they evaluate you.​

    Is she showing any signs of early labour?

    Any digging/nesting, panting, trembling?

    A variation in temperature can indicate that labour is likely within twenty four hours, but temperature taking is not something I ever did.

    Do you have someone you can call upon, a mentor, when your bitch does begin labour/delivery, in case there are complications?

    You would expect her to be restless at this point, as she will be uncomfortable.

    I would keep her with you now, day and night, and watch for the signs of early labour.

    Is she still eating?

    Bitches don't normally begin labour by having obvious contractions.

    Signs of early labour are normally digging up bedding, going off into secluded places, panting, shivering and sometimes loss of appetite and vomiting.

    As labour progresses, the panting will become constant.

    Once she begins to push, it will be obvious, you will see her visibly straining. If she pushes for more than twenty minutes, with no pup appearing, you need to contact your Vet.

    Unfortunately it's against forum rules to advertise stud services. If you're planning on doing so there is a sticky at the top of the page.
