Baby Noses: Introducing Scents to Neonate Puppies

Our presenter for this webinar is Dr. Gayle Watkins. Gayle has been breeding Golden Retrievers and competing in a wide array of dog events--conformation, agility, obedience, tracking, hunt tests and field trials--for nearly 30 years.

During these decades, she has produced, owned and/or shown over 50 American and Canadian conformation, obedience, agility, tracking and rally champions, as well as Master Hunter and Qualified All-Age field trial Goldens.

Gayle’s focus is on using science in her puppy rearing to produce healthy, stable, talented dogs. She brings her background as an Army officer, scientist, researcher, business owner and consultant to this goal. Most recently, she and two of her co-breeders started Avidog International to share these methods with other breeders and puppy owners. In this webinar, we are going to hear about one of the programs that they have been using in the breeding program for nearly a decade.
