Having had the privilege of growing up around and living with domestic animals and livestock I have a vast array of experience in all aspects of animal husbandry. As a family we farm sheep, cattle, pigs and Pygmy goats, and of course we would not be without our beloved house companions consisting of border terriers, puggles and miniature dachshunds. On the odd occasion we have allowed our girls to do what comes naturally and have of litter of well planned puppies. For nine weeks after your first mating the suspense is unbearable, that’s when we discovered ultrasound dog scanning. It has made our lives easier not only with the canine members but a very useful tool with goats, sheep and pigs, also not forgetting our feline friends, in our case Bengals.
