Q. Can you tell me what I can do to improve my my stud dogs performance?
Can you tell me what I can do to improve my my stud dogs performance?

A. The smartest thing any breeder can do to improve his stud dogs potency is to switch his stud dog to an all natural diet. I cannot stress this enough. I will guarantee that commercial dog food does not supply the dietary supplements for an active stud dog.

Here are the things to add to your stud dogs diet:

1. Raw Eggs
2. Cod Liver Oil
3. Powdered Kelp
4. Powdered Alfalfa
5. Flax Seed Oil - keep refrigerated
6. Yogurt
7. Whole Fish
8. Green Leafy Vegetables
9. Vitamin C
10. Vitamin E
11. Vitamin B
12. Liver, Brains, Kidneys, Heart

I don’t know what most people charge for stud service or puppies, but my pups are $1500.00 to $2000.00. A breeder only needs to miss one litter of puppies, because his stud dog does not produce enough healthy sperm, to make the expense of an all natural diet sound pretty cheap.

I have been doing artificial inseminations on my own dogs since the late 1980s, I don't know how many times I have done an AI but certainly between 250 to 300 times. I currently have a success rate of well over 90%. Our 1 hour DVD shows how we collect a stud dog an immediately inseminate one of our females at our kennel.

Ed Frawley, the owner of Leerburg Video and Kennel, has bred and whelped over 350 litters of German Shepherds since the mid 1970's. He owned and operated one of the most professional breeding programs in the country for German Shepherds. In this video you will benefit from the practical experience he has gained in whelping this many litters. This video takes you through the trials of dealing with sick puppies. It shows exactly how to tube feed a weak puppy and it provides a medical program to follow for the entire litter.

Puppy Tube Feeding Kit
Puppy Tube Feeding Kit
Feeding tube is 16 inches long (41cm) and approximately 3/32 inches (2.7mm) outside diameter. It is best to store your feeding tube and syringe at normal room temperature. In colder temperatures the feeding tube will become rigid and stiff. At body temperature, the tube becomes softer, resilient, and completely flexible. Syringe is 35cc and attaches to the integral funnel end of the feeding tube. The opposite end of the feeding tube has a closed rounded tip with 2 side port 'eyes'.
