[quote=Chris;112312]Is there someone with experience of having a brood bitch for Guidedogs
Yes, I am a brood bitch holder for Guide Dogs, and my brood has had three litters, soon to be mated for her fourth. I puppy walked for Guide Dogs for many years and one of my puppies came from Irish Guide Dogs
I also had a brood for Hearing Dogs who whelped and raised her litter in my home, and also a very young rescue who had been straying in Ireland and was found to be pregnant (in pup) when rescued and brought to the UK.
I am happy to tell you of my experiences with the whelping and raising of the litters. I expect the Irish Guide Dogs have the same procedure.
I absolutely love doing this for such a good cause and I hope you do, too.
I've only just joined this forum today and found this topic which is so close to my heart.
