A Canine Breeder Excellence Seminar
The 7th Annual Symposium on Canine Reproduction is an opportunity for breeders and veterinarians to convene and converse about our shared passion for breeding dogs. The focus of this year’s symposium is The Male and covers a broad array of topics designed to address management practices and common challenges faced by both kennels and clinics involved in standing a stud-dog for semen collection and storage.
