The Home Breeder Puppy Playbook can be likened to a breeding journal.
It’s a place to keep all your thoughts, actions and ideas while you plan, prepare and parent puppies. It’s structured like a workbook with milestones to support you during your complete breeding experience. The playbook is an essential prompt to make sure you consider all eventualities and possibilities, helping you reduce risk and feel more control and confidence during the experience.
The playbook should be an essential item in any dog breeders arsenal. Furthermore, the playbook is supplied with a pathway, a step by step video series. These videos will walk you through each exercise, task or template explaining the positive impact and importance it will have to your breeding plans and how to complete it.
It’s like the mentor you never had.
Well let’s get started, but firstly:
As you work through the pathway with the associated videos, you can use the bookmark and favourites icons, and these are bottom right of all videos or top right for articles enabling you to refer back to any information you’ve marked as relevant through the ‘My Area’ of your account.
You can also track your progress by selecting the tick icon after you completed each video, which will update the tracker top right of the page.
Navigate through the videos lessons as you progress through the playbook, if you wish to see any videos ‘out of sync’ then access them directly through the resources page.
