Our DVD shows how to collect a male for artificial insemination.This DVD is divided into a number of sections They are:
Leerburg Disposable AI Kits are now available!
The equipment in these kits is better than the equipment we used when we produced our DVD teaching people how to do artificial inseminations. The equipment in our AI kits are sterile and disposable. It's designed to be used one time and thrown away.
Before we had this disposable equipment we used to have to clean and sterilize the sheaths, test tubes and insemination tubes after an AI was done. While I did this for 20 years there was always the risk of an infection. The last place you want an infection is in the uterus of your breeding female.
So while the sheaths in these kits are a lot thinner than those used in my DVD, they are meant to be tossed out after one use. On a 2 AI kit we supply 4 sheaths, on a 3 AI kit we supply 6 sheaths so if you tear one you have another.

My stud malinois had been bitten several times by heated females during last a year or so and became very conservative to naturally mating to any females. Besides, I don't want him to be bitten again when breeding. As per your video that a teaser female is used during collection, while 3 persons are required. Can I simply use the collected semen in a separate room without a teaser female and do the insemination in a different room? I can easily get 15-17 C.C.s semen from my stud malinois every one or two days if I need.
Please advise and thanks,
If you can get a viable collection without a teaser, then I think that would be fine. We find we usually get better collections with a female present but if he gets stressed about having her there then I would do what works!
First I would like to thank you very much for great information on your DVD's. They are easy to know and are very helpful. I have the most of them from you and I am going to complete the collection. I like them very much any way. I have a problem this is my first time in breeding now. I want to breed my dogs ....now my female is completely ready to breed .....but the problem is in my male. He is 3 years old now and he does not know how to jump. Some times he jumps but he does not know how to do it and this has happed many times with him. I do not know what should I do. Is this normal or there is problem? What should I do? Please help ....thank you for your time.
If your dogs won't breed naturally and you are convinced that you should have a litter from them, then you will have to do an artificial insemination.
