Pupstarts Breeders

Rebecca Walters


I’ve been a dog breeder for 16 years, and I know how difficult it can be to get clear information on dog breeding.

You’re not alone in thinking the dog breeding industry feels like a very “closed shop.” Learning how to breed ethically and responsibly can feel like an enormous challenge.

But, with Pupstart’s dog breeding courses, you can benefit from a wealth of experience both in and out of the whelping box.

Our complete range of dog breeding courses empower ethical dog breeders to breed, whelp and raise better puppies. Our courses cover: breeding, pregnancy & whelping; puppy socialisation for breeders; puppy profiling; early puppy training for new owners; breeder paperwork including schedules, routines and monitoring for healthy, happy pups.
