This is a very popular and accessible guide to breeding, especially suitable for first-timers. It is quite comprehensive, covering topics, such as your responsibilities as a breeder, how to choose the dogs you breed from, surveys of inherited canine health problems, and the care of bitches, whelping, and possible problems, and care of of the pups when they are born. There is also help with nutrition for both bitches and pups. You will probably need something a little more in-depth if you plan to breed from dogs on a regular basis, but this is an excellent introduction to the topic.
