Reading & Watching Material on Breeding

Post by arianwenarie » Mon May 06, 2013 12:25 am

I'm currently taking the free online course in Canine Theriogenology on Coursera. Which has me wondering if any experienced breeders/handlers would be willing to share any additional resources - anything related to breeding, really. But it seems I'm more interested in temperament and structure. lol. Genetics are also very interesting and I'd want to study that on the side as well.

So far off the top of my head, I remember Tracy @ Hawthorne has recommended "The Puppy Puzzle" DVD...still waiting to get my hands on that. lol. I don't have a Tam (yet), but since I'm a research nut, I guess it doesn't hurt to start learning early on. ;)

I have to say that I am right there with ya, I am really curious about things (everything, really, haha) shamelessly, and borderline annoyingly ;)

I know Hawthorne started a "recommended books" topic, but nobody replied about their personal recommendations. I think it would be really cool if there was a topic where people posted articles, blogs, books and such about genetics, structure, behavior, and everything breeding related :D

Yes, and the person who started the topic keep adding to the list at the top so they don't get lost in comments and it's easy accessible instead of having to look through multiple pages :D (just a thought).

There’s a battle between two wolves inside us all.
One is Evil. It’s anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies and ego.
The other is Good. It’s joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness and truth.

The wolf that wins? The one you feed!

~ Cherokee Proverb

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity... I'm not sure about the former.

lol. It's OK. I only managed to sift through the course breakdown and post an intro. I had final exams for school this weekend and finishing up today. Tomorrow evening is dedicated to this coursework. ;)

I also took this course, it was all good information that should be known before anyone decided to breed.

I hope this course comes up again, as life events made it so that I had to drop the courses I was taking :(

No. It focused only on canines (dogs) because that's what the course was called: Canine Theriogenology. lol. :P

To clarify, I meant wolves and jackals, but now that you mentioned that it only focuses on dog then I guess that answers my question anyway.


What website is the course offered on btw?

It was offered on Coursera.org. I'm not sure if it's being offered again, but I remember it was being discussed.
