Helpful and Affordable

Jill Philby

I really just needed the basics of how to best wean the puppies while optimizing the dam's health. I learned that, plus much info about dog nutrition and more.

Avoid the top mistakes breeders make when feeding nursing dams

Weaning is challenging even for seasoned professionals. There’s no one right or wrong way, and there are always different issues that can arise. This course teaches you how to wean your puppies and care for your nursing dam with less stress and less risk (for them and you!)

  • What you need to know about when and how to wean puppies and how to avoid potentially dangerous or even deadly pitfalls

  • How to know if your dams and puppies are getting enough or too much food-

  • How to avoid blown coats, milk production issues, and dams becoming depleted

  • What you don’t know about dog food and how that can make or break your nursing dams and weaning puppies.

  • How to take care of your dam during weaning—most weaning instructions focus on the puppies, but it can be a very stressful and challenging time for the dam and she deserves the best care possible

  • Learn the most common nutritional deficiency in lactating dams that can determine whether or not she can nurse her puppies properly

  • Includes sample weaning protocols

Bonuses

  • The scoop on poop: Discover little known information about poop (yes, poop!) and how you can use that info to help your puppies and mamas

  • The truth about probiotics and supplements and how to evaluate those yourself (plus recommendations)

  • All about mother’s milk
