Release date for course: October 2018
Pre purchase now at 50% off post release price: so $75 instead of $150.
I'm working away building this course. It's an exciting one, because you can sell your puppies with their own pedigree papers. Be they designer dogs, crossbreed or purebred, you will establish you own registry which is able to issue pedigree papers.
If you would like to pre purchase while I prepare this course, you can do so now at half the price. So that's $280 instead of $560. It's scheduled for release in October 2018. You won't be needing the course until this time, so I'm launching others to do with mating, whelping etc ahead of this course.
Now, a bit about the course...
'Pedigree' is actually another word for 'family tree'.
Pedigree papers give great confidence to your puppy buyers, plus it's a valuable tool for recording all your dog's family data (and the data of their breeding mate(s)).
It doesn't matter if you only know the second or even just the first (the parents) generation. Point is it's a record of your puppies' known history and onto this information future generations can build. They can be built with confidence that there is zero inbreeding and you have an idea of what colours and patterns might be carried in their DNA.
It's simple, affordable and fun!

Lady Fi (Fiona Douglas) is a pet dog breeding expert who, together with husband David, trail blazed professional purebred pet dog breeding in Australia.
She is founder of the My Dog Wants Puppies School (2017) and principal instructor.
Lady Fi became a dog breeder in 2005 when she formed Dachshund Australia. Since this time she has met with overseas breeders and imported dachshund patterns and colours not before seen in Australia.
Dachshund Australia’s health and happy puppies are highly sought after by families both nationally and internationally.
Animal welfare is close to Lady Fi’s heart. Most recently, she contributed a pet welfare initiative that became law in December 2017 under the Victorian Government Puppy Farms legislation.
In collaboration with industry colleagues, she has helped progress the use of science in dog breeding. For example, bringing ultrasound technology to fellow dog breeders so they can more accurately determine if an emergency cesarean is needed, foetal comfort/distress, foetal age, and whelping date.
She represented pet dog breeders on the Victorian Government industry advisory panel for the revision of the Victorian Dog Breeding Code of Practice,. She did this in her capacity as voluntary executive officer of the Australian Association of Pet Dog Breeders Inc. (AAPDB). Currently she is a member of the AAPDB committee.
At 56 years of age, Lady Fi brings to the My Dog Wants Puppies School her enduring passion for dogs, underpinned by her professional and business experience, her formal training and her personal experiences as a dog breeder.
She holds an honours degree in Agricultural Science, a masters degree in Social Work and she is a qualified Professional Counsellor.
My Dog Wants Puppies School is the culmination of Lady Fi’s life journey to date, calling on her skills in the areas of writing, teaching, scientific understanding, and her compassion…all this powered by her deep love of dogs.
Background prior to breeding
David and Lady Fi got their first dachshund in 1983; a standard black & tan smooth hair called Gina. A dachshund has been by their side ever since.
Fiona started her career in the 1980s as a lecturer in horticulture. When David and Fiona’s daughters were born, she started a business, Inkling, as a freelance agricultural journalist and educational consultant. This business grew, allowing David to leave his work and the family to leave Melbourne and head to the countryside.
